The further we got into The Bachelorette episode 5 this week, the more obvious it was that Hunter was getting the villain edit. Without Thomas on the show anymore, the men didn’t have many other places to point their disdain.
Is Hunter anywhere near as dastardly as some of the other dudes we’ve seen on the show over time? No, he really isn’t. He didn’t talk about wanting to be the Bachelor, and he didn’t have anything bad from his past following him from back home onto the show. All the show had on him was that he was competitive — too competitive and that was validated by Katie tell him “good tackle” after he threw one of the men to the ground. Many of the moves he made with Katie felt perfectly timed, from the moment he told her about his kids to the part of the cocktail party with the telescope. All of it started to rub the guys the wrong way.

We get that Hunter wants a lot of time with Katie — in the game of love, there are no rules. The biggest issue is that he got a positive response from Katie when it came to his aggressive behavior on the field. He also had the group-date rose going into the end of the episode, and created some animosity because there were men that still hadn’t gotten any time with her.
Who was eliminated?
The show really build up the drama that Tre could be eliminated, especially after how upset he was at Hunter for some of his behavior. Yet, he ended up sticking around! Most of the notable guys stayed. Quartney is the only person who had a decent amount of screen time that left.
