'Bachelor' And 'Bachelorette' Scandals That Have Shocked Fans Over The Years

And We Thought THIS Was Bad ...

And we thought Brooks Forester dumping Desiree Hartsock was bad ...

How could we forget about all the other scandals that rocked the contestants, fans and Chris Harrison over the years on "The Bachelor" and "The Bachelorette." From messy breakups to lying heartbreakers and press-hungry suitors, the ABC shows have had their fair share of drama.

This season of "The Bachelorette" has already served up large doses of tension, including Brooks' departure and Brian Jarosinski's secret girlfriend. And how could we forget about playboy Bentley Williams, who broke Ashley Hebert's heart during Season 7 after he admitted he was just not that into her.

And from Courtney Robertson to Tierra LiCausi, there have been some cocky, whiny, pompous women on "The Bachelor."

Plus, remember when Jason Mesnick picked Melissa Rycoft in the Season 13 finale and then broke up with her during the "After the Final Rose" special because he realized he was really in love with his runner-up, Molly Malaney? Now THAT was scandalous. (But it worked out in their favor, considering Jason and Molly are married and just had a baby).

Check out more of the shocking "Bachelor" and "Bachelorette" moments in the video above.
