Shall we count the reasons as to why Juan Pablo Galavis is possibly the least-liked Bachelor in the show's history? 1) That homophobic slur 2) That sexist comment he made to Clare in the final episode 3) The fact that he didn't propose to Nikki, nor tell her he loves her 4) The fact that he says "ees ok" to solve every single problem. Ok. We're done now.

Tiffany Pollard, aka "New York," participated in the reality show Flavor of Love, which led to her own spin-offs (plural). New York literally had every single one of her fellow contestants hating on her, which thus made the public kind of hate on her, too. And the fact that she dubbed herself the "Head Bitch in Charge" probably didn't help matters.

Camille Grammer was Queen B (as in beeyotch) throughout season 1 of RHOBH. Hands down. She's since watched her mouth a bit more and had tons of fans sympathize with her through her divorce, her cancer scare and her domestic violence situation, but still. Never forget Camille Grammer circa 2010.

We gotta hand it to Omarosa, because she knows what it takes to be a good business woman. She starred on the first season of Apprentice, as well as Celebrity Apprentice and All Stars. But  let's be real—you do not want to get on Omarosa's bad side.

Not even these cute puppies can make Simon Cowell look like a softie. The new dad, whose brutal honesty has been seen on everything from American Idol to The X Factor in both the US and the UK, will forever be a big ol' meanie to us.

Some may argue that Stefan Richter is not the most evil Top Chef contestant (Lisa Fernandes, anyone?), but Stefan, who  was a runner-up on season five, was cocky and obnoxious. He was even cocky and obnoxious when he appeared as one of Patti Stanger's clients on Millionaire Matchmaker in 2013!
