Prepare to be sickened, annoyed or angry, but we have a new favorite person on television, and his name is Chad Johnson, the I-Just-Don't-Care semi-bully on "The Bachelorette."
As much as fans are disgusted by the luxury real estate agent, just think about how unentertaining the show might be without him there. The rest of the men vying for JoJo Fletcher's heart seem to be nice, upstanding men who go with the flow.
Chad is a pot stirrer in the most entertaining way.
The 28-year-old, whose hobbies apparently involve working out and wolfing down large plates of lunch meat, is the newest guilty pleasure in television.
Remember when he started snapping his fingers and said that the anti-Chad guys within the house were like the "West Side Story?"
Let's be honest, he's hysterical.
On the most recent episode, the oh-so-sure-about-himself Chad was unapologetic when he revealed he wanted no part of a group date "with 12 dudes" even going so far as to say that he'd rather just wait for a one-on-one date the next day because we was sure that he would get it.
He's probably the most honest "Bachelorette" contestant in history.
Of course, he even told JoJo during the date the he didn't want to be a part of it. Perhaps he would have been better staying at home, as well, as the date consisted of them telling stories of past sexual experiences. Evan Bass, who has largely hung in the shadows of the show, decided that the group date was the time to lay into Chad (lay = pun intended.) Evan is an erectile dysfunction consultant and rather than tell a personal story, he spoke about the dangers of using steroids and what it does to, well, parts of the male body.
He didn't specifically single out Chad by name, but he implied it by referring to the time that he told JoJo she was "nagging."
Later, JoJo gave Evan the group date rose, which was a shock to everyone, especially Chad, who looked dumbfounded.
"Is the real? Is this a real scenario?," he asks. He later compared Evan to Gary Oldman's hair-swept-to-the-side character in the "Fifth Element," which, as much as you want to hate it, is pretty spot on.
In the same episode he's compared to Hitler, to which he laughs at, while devouring a sweet potato as if it were a carrot stick.
Chad even tells host Chris Harrison and JoJo that he is a bully, but the rest of the cast is trying to "bully the bully."
To be fair, he does have a soft side, saying he went on the show because of his late mother.
"The one question people keep asking, is why did I go on #TheBachelorette? Well other than the fact that I work all the time, for 7 years I watched my mother slowly die from cancer," he wrote in an emotional Instagram post, sharing a snap of he and his mom. "Over the last 3 she got much worse and I decided to spend all of my time that I wasn't working at her house taking care of her and generally spending time with her.
She was all alone since her divorce from my father. My sister and I were all that she had. So I have not had a relationship in a very long time because I was busy trying to make sure my mother lived out her final years in comfort and surrounded by family. I still miss her everyday... She was my best friend and the person I told everything to."
It's his devious side, though, that has everyone talking. The Oklahoman's antics last week made their way to the Internet, as well, after he purchased several domain names of his fellow contestants, including Alex Woytkiw, who he recently trolled on Instagram, calling him a care bear.
Somehow through it all, he's still on the show, and we can all be thankful for that.
Here's to you, Chad, now go eat some sliced turkey.
