Aaron and Brayden Bowers Do Not Get Along

During his run on The Bachelorette, Aaron found himself at odds with Brayden Bowers. When Brayden told the guys he probably wouldn’t be ready to propose to Charity at the end of the season, Aaron had to respond. “If you’re not sure about Charity, then leave,” Aaron said. “It’s time to buckle up and be here for the right reason. Don’t walk around with a rose if you don’t want to date with 20 other guys.”

Aaron went on to warn Charity about Brayden. He told Charity that he didn’t want her to “waste” her time and potentially get her “heart broken” by Brayden. Charity listened to what Aaron had to say about Brayden. When Brayden learned that Aaron had spoken to Charity about him, he was incredibly “annoyed.” Ultimately, Brayden left the show. Aaron was eliminated down the road but then returned for a second chance with Charity. However, it still didn’t work out for him.
