12 Most Epic Meltdowns in Bachelor History

by at .

Some folks out there may watch The Bachelor online or on television because they want to see two people fall in love.

Others may find the star very attractive.

But still others would likely make the following admission: they tune in each week with the hope that one of the scorned suitors will totally lose it on national television.

With that in mind, here's a rundown of the most epic meltdowns in series history:

1. Total, Complete and Fake Panic

Total, Complete and Fake Panic
On Season 19, Kelsey was known as "the Black Widow" because she openly plotted about when she'd reveal to Chris that her husband was dead. She then broke down in a crazy panic attack, which most viewers believed was a total con job.

2. How Dare You Let Me Go?!?

How Dare You Let Me Go?!?
On Season 5, Trish got the boot... but she then proceeded to check into the same hotel as Jesse Palmer and the three final contestants, actually interrupting his overnight date with another woman to tell him he'd made a serious mistake in letting her go.

3. The Eyebrow Has It

The Eyebrow Has It
Remember on Season 17 when Tierra LiCausi said the other women would never take away her "sparkle," even in the face of a rogue eyebrow?

4. Get Them Drunk. See What Happens.

Get Them Drunk. See What Happens.
This basically sums up the philosophy of the producers, and never did it play out better than on Season 18 when Victoria got very cozy with a Champagne bottle and had one of the drunkest on-camera meltdowns in the history network television. She locked herself in the bathroom and then got send home.

5. Who is Juan Pablo Anyway?!?

Who is Juan Pablo Anyway?!?
The finale of The Bachelor Season 18 was highlighted by Clare in tears, angry with Juan Pablo for turning out to be someone other than who she believed him to be.

6. A Bachelor Meltdown

Move over, ladies. On Season 14, Jason Mesnick proved that men are capable of losing it, as well, after he broke down because he dumped Molly. The pair ended up married and have a child together, though.

7. Poor Ashley

Poor Ashley
"I had the perfect guy, and it just didn't work." So said Ashley I. after getting the boot on The Bachelor. She also ended up in tears on Bachelor in Paradise.

8. Feeling Faint

Feeling Faint
You've gotta hand it to Erica on Season 16. She actually went ahead and (fake?) fainted upon not receiving a rose.

9. Everything About Ashley S. on Season 19

Everything About Ashley S. on Season 19
She may have been the oddest contestant of all-time. This quote sums her up well: "Every person you meet is like an onion. You cut them, but when you cut them, you peel them back and what you do is you peel them back layer by layer.... Look at this onion. Seriously, I'm not even kidding. That's a freakin' onion. I swear it's an onion. Can I just please just pick it? If it's a pomegranate, then God bless it. It is a pomegranate. It is."

10. The Wrath of Rozlyn

The Wrath of Rozlyn
Despite being kicked off the Bachelor for allegedly having an affair with a producer, Rozlyn Papa returned on Season 14 to tell her side of the story. It was awesome. She totally went off on Chris Harrison during the Women Tell All special.

11. Britt Breaks Down

Britt Breaks Down
On Season 19, Britt attempted to keep her cool in the hot seat. She really did. However, she finally fired back after all the suitors gang up on her during the Women Tell All episode. Britt ended up in tears.

12. A Crazy Cat Lady?

A Crazy Cat Lady?
Poor Jessica. She was given the boot from Season 12 and then cried in the subsequent interview, going on about how her cat is the "life of my life at the moment."
