For those who watched the premiere of “Bachelor in Paradise” on Monday night, you bore witness to one of the craziest fights in the history of the show. After Chad Johnson got angry, aggressive, and downright disrespectful beyond all belief to Lace Morris, Sarah Herron, and others, Chris Harrison (and likely the producers) asked him to leave. In turn was another angry confrontation, one where Chad accused the show host of spending all night drinking mimosas in a white robe and not really caring about the show at all.
So basically, Chad played into the persona of Graham, the host of “Everlasting” from “UnREAL.”
Are the two on better terms now? Judging from the appearance Chad made on “The Bachelorette: The Men Tell All,” it does appear to be that way. According to The Hollywood Reporter, at one part following his time in the hot seat (it didn’t make it to air) he said to the host “I f—ked up. I apologize” before going to say “we made good TV though, didn’t we,” a comment that certainly says a lot about priorities with this show. Harrison said all was fine, and the two were obviously okay enough for there to be a brief bit during the “After the Final Rose” special.
Ultimately, we’re not sure how many Chad supporters abandoned ship after his actions tonight, but we imagine quite a few. The reality here is that there’s no real way that he can defend much of what was said this time around. Even the drunkenness was something he was in control of.
