Jesse Kovacs Behavior Towards Chrissy, Tasos, & Well, Everyone Proves He's 'Bachelor In Paradise's Biggest Jerk
I tried to give this Bachelor in Paradise villain the benefit, but Jesse Kovacs keeps being offensive. While I didn't think his sexual exploits with Lucy Aragon and Christy Hansen were that bad, I do think a lot of what comes out of his mouth is douchey. He's basically slid seamlessly into the spot held by Chris Bukowski who was known for calling people names like "Fat Damon." But Jesse has had more than one verbal transgression in Monday's episode alone, not to mention the last couple of weeks.
Look, I know that reality TV editing can play a big role in how someone is portrayed, but it doesn't manipulate what you say. Every offensive thing to come out of Jesse's mouth was his decision to say. Sure, after the fact he regrets some of what he did. “There’s definitely things I would have done differently. One hundred percent,” he told me. But still, it's hard to overlook all these things he's been guilty of saying. Seriously, how did he expect us to react to these comments? He can't have thought they all came off as funny jokes, right? Take a look at what he's done for yourself:
DEGRADING LUCY AFTER HE SLEPT WITH HER
Jesse sent Lucy home last week after supposedly sleeping with her. That in itself is harsh enough, but then he called her "what's her nuts." If you have intimate relations with a girl, use her real name. Strike one, Jesse.
CALLING TASOS "TACO"
Haha, that's so funny his name sounds like a food. Not. I feel like Jesse was trying to show that Tasos Hernandez meant nothing to him by relegating him to a Mexican dish. It also came off a little racist, to be honest.
JUDGING CHRISTY BY HER HAIR COLOR
"I'm not looking to start a relationship with a dumb blonde," he told the camera. Gross, man. She already thought he was a jerk, so I bet she was furious when she saw this episode.
BLAMING CHRISTY FOR THE END OF THEIR RELATIONSHIP
Basically he told Christy she wasn't open enough (which is funny considering he sent Lucy home because she was too open) and blamed her for why they didn't work out. In real life, Jesse didn't want to be with her anyway, he just decided to make her feel guilty before he left.
I guess Jesse hasn't grown up much since, like, fifth grade. His "jokes" aren't funny and his comments are rude. I think the show dodged a bullet when Jesse decided to send himself home because as he continued his journey he was just bound to get even worse.
