Uh oh! Chad Johnson has been a hot topic ever since his recent stint on The ‘Bachelorette,’ leaving some to wonder whether his overly aggressive nature is suitable for the show. Former ‘Bachelorette’ Desiree Hartsock says he would be long gone if it were her!
Chad Johnson, the 28-year-old former Marine has painted quite the image of himself since stepping on the set of season 12 for ABC’s dating show, The Bachelorette. He’s fighting for the heart of real estate developer JoJo Fletcher, 25, in more ways then one. Chad showed how easily his temper takes control in the latest episode when he got physical with the other suitors, prompting season nine beauty Desiree Hartsock, 29, to advise JoJo to send him packing!
“That guy would have been gone ASAP,” Desiree tells ET. He’s been known as the villain of the series due to his recent actions and has received plenty of backlash since calling JoJo “naggy” in week two. Even former football player Chad Johnson aka Ochocinco has been the recipient of many hateful comments considering he shares the same name. Fans of the show grew more worrisome of Chad’s behavior after he was seen pushing Evan Bass due to being questioned for his use of steroids. The producers have since increased security measures in the suitors’ house to keep everyone safe.
His scary behavior even grabbed the attention of Desiree, who divulged that it’s time to deprive Chad of his rose and his right to love on the show. “I think Chad is dangerous,” she said. “A lot of the guys have mentioned that they don’t feel safe. So that is a really huge sign that maybe he needs to go home.” As for why the Bachelorette team hasn’t sent Chad on his merry little way, Desiree explains that JoJo may be the ultimate deciding factor. “The only thing that could happen is maybe like encouraging — ‘Oh no, just give him time,’” she reasons. “But other than that, it’s really her show. She can say ‘no way.’”
Even host Chris Harrison questioned Chad regarding Evan’s allegations about his possible drug-use, which he denied to the fullest. Although Evan was ultimately rewarded the rose at the end of the night, fans are still worried JoJo won’t give her ticking-time bomb suitor the axe! It seems the season 12 leading lady does have a former Bachelorette in her corner. Now experiencing the pleasures of her post dating-show life, Desiree is married to former contestant Chris Siegfried and they are expecting their first child together. It looks like we’re going to have to stay tuned to see if JoJo also finds her happy ending!
