'Bachelorette': Chris Harrison Wanted to 'Choke' Lucas, But 'Whaboom' Is Not Only 'Villain'
"The Bachelorette" host Chris Harrison warned that viewers might want to murder Lucas, aka "Whaboom," but there are two bachelors on Rachel Lindsay's season who seemed to want to murder each other, even interrupting each other's exit interviews to tell each other to "F*ck off." It's gonna be that kind of season, folks!
Rachel begins her journey as the 13th Bachelorette this Monday, May 22 on ABC. Harrison told E! News that Lucas probably won't be known as Lucas, you're just gonna known him as "Whaboom" -- which is how ABC even lists his occupation.
"I kinda want to choke him, like, 'Stop!' Enough is enough, let it go. You're at a 12, I need you to bring it down to a four."
You can watch Lucas's "Whaboom" limo entrance now, in a sneak peek scene on the official "Bachelorette" site.
When E! asked if this season has a "villain," Harrison thought about it and said Lucas/Whaboom could be one, but there are other contenders as well.
"Lucas might be that guy you love to hate. But Lee is also the guy who's this very Southern gentleman, sweet as apple pie, you know, nice as can be. But the way he talks and the way he says things kind of rubs people the wrong way."
The rosemaster said there will also be a lot of crying this season, and fans might be surprised about who does the most crying -- like Kenny, a badass wrestler who is also "a bawl bag." Harrison didn't name the two guys who hated each other, but apparently they got dumped at the same time and kept crashing each other's post-elimination interviews to tell each other off.
One guy Harrison might not have even had on his radar as a potential "villain" has already ticked off some fans. In his ABC bio, Bryce made a quip that some fans found transphobic, answering the question "What's your biggest date fear?" with "The chick is actually a dude." That has not gone over too well, and it looks like ABC may have deleted that particular Q&A from his bio.
"The Bachelorette" airs Monday at 9 p.m. on ABC, then moves to 8 p.m. on May 29. Spoilers are out on Rachel's rumored final four, and the guy she picks, so check them out over here. Rachel did confirm that she's engaged, and still in love with the guy she picked.
