7. Trish Schneider, The Bachelor Season 5
Trish Schneider earned villain status almost instantly when she was spotted early on in Bachelor Season 5 wearing a T-shirt that read "Gold Digger— Like a hooker … just smarter.” Bachelor Jesse Palmer kept Trish around until just before the overnight dates, even though his best friend, Jenny, acting as a spy in the house, told him to dump Trish. When the ladies of Season 5 played a game of "I never," Trish shocked everyone by saying she had slept with more men than she could count on both hands and both feet — including a married man. It took another competitor telling Jesse that Trish was there for "the wrong reasons" for him to send her packing. But she didn’t stay home. The Bachelor loves villains, so Trish came back on the show to tell Jesse that he'd made a mistake and to invite him to come stay in her hotel room instead of going on an overnight date with another contestant. Jesse was shocked. Viewers were shocked. He sent her packing — again — and America still remember her as the gold-digging "stalker," fair or not.
