The Bachelorette’s new villain, Chad Johnson, is really taking his role to heart.
The 28-year-old luxury real estate developer, who is among the suitors vying for JoJo Fletcher’s heart this season, is apparently buying web domains of his fellow contestants and redirecting them to his own Instagram account, according to Mashable.
Robby Hayes (RobbyHayes.com), Derek Peth (DerekPeth.com), Chase McNary (ChaseMcNary.com) and Alex Woytkiw (AlexWoytkiw.com) are among the bachelors Johnson has targeted.
And he isn’t exclusively going after suitors, either.
Visit Joelle-Fletcher.com, a.k.a. Fletcher’s real name, and it brings you back to Johnson’s Instagram. Hmmm...
This season’s “super douche” seemingly confirmed that he was behind the domain names on Twitter, responding to a reporter who noticed his stealth domain-buying. “[insert evil laugh here] hahaha,” he tweeted.
Johnson has been dubbed the Bachelorette house's resident “douche” after he got confrontational with another suitor, Woytkiw, and threatened violence after the two got into a heated argument.
Then, in a preview for next week, it looks like things may actually turn violent, as we see Johnson punching a door while another suitor bleeds from his face.
Following Monday’s explosive episode, Johnson defended himself to Bachelorette fans.
“I’m not violent,” Johnson wrote, attempting to assure the fanbase, “but I will stand up for myself, being as I, like everyone else, do not like being harassed and bullied.”
The Bachelorette airs Mondays at 8 p.m. ET/PT on ABC.
