It was no secret heading into tonight’s live finale of The Bachelor. Clayton Echard is wildly unpopular.
Clayton’s personality took a terrible turn for the worst last week, when he turned on Susie for questioning his commitment to her after being intimate with Gabby and Rachel during the final dates.
He was gaslighting Susie. He was tyrannical. And he escorted her off the show.
Only to go crawling back to her the very next week. And instead, subjecting Gabby and Rachel to heartbreak.
He was so bad that many fans were rooting for a busted finish where he ends up alone. Almost 80% of participants in a small flash poll didn’t want any of the ladies to accept a proposal from him.

But is he the most disliked Bachelor ever?
Another small flash poll taken the night of the finale overwhelming says so with about 96% of viewers saying he is the worst Bachelor ever.

It really should come as no surprise. By the time the final hour of the season rolled around, even the normally polite applause from the live audience was sluggish. There really was no redemption for him.
Now, this is reality TV. It’s important to keep in mind the staged nature of the programming.
But even with that qualifier, Clayton Echard has earned a very unenviable position in Bachelor history.
He may be the most disliked bachelor to ever go on the show.
But in the end he found love. Isn’t that what the show is all about?
What do you think? Is Clayton your least favorite Bachelor or Bachelorette? Is it someone else?
