He may have left the show, but The Bachelorette’s Chad Johnson is still causing controversy.
This season’s bad boy did an interview with Andy Cohen on Monday, during which he claimed that many of the eligible men vying for bachelorette JoJo Fletcher’s attention are cheaters.
"You've got all these guys on the show and they're acting all nice and like they're such good guys when at the end of the day, they're cheating on their girlfriends, half of them broke up with girlfriends to go on the show,” said the reality star.
“How can they be good guys?” he continued, during the interview on Cohen’s SiriusXM radio show, Radio Andy. “I wouldn't do that. I’m the only one with an actual real reason for coming on the show to meet somebody.”
Johnson was eliminated from Fletcher’s man hunt earlier this month, having earned the nicknames “Bad Chad” and “Super Douche” from his fellow contestants.
Following his rejection, he got cozy with fellow contestant Robby Hayes’ ex-girlfriend, Hope Higginbotham, and posted the PDA snaps on Instagram.
In his interview with Cohen, Johnson said he simply posted the photos to make a point about the authenticity of his fellow suitors.
The season 12 contestant also defended his behavior, stressing that he knows how to treat a woman.
"People just think I'm this violent, crazy person who hurts women or something like that," he told Cohen. "It's a competition. … I’m going to do what I have to do. I treat my women very well. That's my thing, like yeah, I'm willing to do what I gotta do to get what I want when it comes to competition, but I'm very nice to my girls."
Recently, Johnson admitted he could see his “douche” colors coming through on the series after finally watching an episode.
"So I finally watched the show at my sisters.. Holy t*ts now I understand why some people hate me!" he wrote in an Instagram post. "Haha but some parts were hilarious too LOL."
The luxury real estate agent later insisted that his personality was “amplified” on television.
However, not everyone is anti-Chad!
It turns out he has a fan in Justin Bieber. See more in the video below.
