Lacy Faddoul Calls Jesse Kovacs Bachelor in Paradise’s “Biggest Shark”
Lacy Faddoul may have gotten off on the wrong foot with Bachelor in Paradise audiences for her inability to do basic arithmetic and her need to make her mark on the menfolk's eye sockets, but the California girl has slowly won us over as she blisses out with Marcus Grodd and focuses more on making eyes than making a splash. The Juan Pablo Galavis eliminee has proven herself to be sweet and actually pretty insightful, so it’s telling that she senses a predator in August 25 newcomer Jesse Kovacs.
Right off the bat he raised our red flags a bit when he said he wanted to go on a date with every woman in Tulumand that he was thinking more about strategy than anything else. When Jackie Parr straight up asked if he wanted a date with her because he liked her or because he wanted a rose, bro could barely keep a straight face during his non answer that he liked her energy of “availability.”
Still, Jesse is a bit of an enigma to us. Despite the rep that seems to have preceded him — Sarah Herron said he’s a known “playboy” and Lacy said “let’s just admit it: he’s coming here to play” — back when we first met him on Jillian Harris’s season of The Bachelorette, he seemed sweet. He certainly won Jilly over, almost making it into her top four!
Obviously Lacy was in Tulum with him and knows something we don’t, which means we’re looking forward to tonight’s episode more than ever!
