A look back at all the villains from The Bachelor and The Bachelorette.

You lil’ beauty.

Nick Cummins AKA Honey Badger (and his glorious moustache) is officially The Bachelor 2018.

Honey Badger Bachelor is a former rugby union player with a larrikin sense of humour. He’s just spent the last couple of months jumping out of planes and having picnic blanket dates with a bunch of bachelorettes.

This season of The Bachelor (which starts on Wednesday, August 15 at 7.30pm on Channel Ten) is shaping up to be a real lil’ ripper.

While we wait for our next hit of bachie-goodness, we thought we’d take a look back at some of the villains from the past seasons of The Bachelor and The Bachelorette.

The good, the bad, and the downright hilarious.

Keira Maguire, The Bachelor Season Four

Keira appeared in Richie Strahan’s season of The Bachelor. She was eliminated after a particularly tense yoga session. She then joined the cast of the first season of Bachelor in Paradise Australia. There she met Jarrod Woodgate… and his pot plant.

Laurina Fleure, The Bachelor Season Two

Laurina appeared in Blake Garvey's season of The Bachelor. She was eliminated after Blake took her out for a meat pie, which she referred to as a "dirty street pie".

She then appeared on the first season of Bachelor in Paradise, where she cried a lot and refused to go on any dates.

He was a bit of a d*ck and chucked a tanty when Sophie eliminated him.

He then appeared on Bachelor in Paradise and called Laurina "Lenora" while choosing to re-couple with her at a rose ceremony.

Blake Garvey, The Bachelor Season Two

So, erm, Blake was the second Bachelor in the Australian franchise.

Although he seemed like a nice bloke during the show, he later dumped his first choice, Sam Frost, and hooked up with his second runner up, Louise Pillidge.

They later broke up... on the cover of a magazine.

Leah Costa, The Bachelor Season Five

Leah Costa appeared on Matty J's season of The Bachelor. She later went on Bachelor in Paradise where she had a bunch of short-lived "romances" with some of the other contestants.

After threatening it for weeks, Leah walked out of Bach in Paradise single.

Once she left the show, she pretended she was engaged in a prank that spectacularly backfired.

It was then rumoured she was dating Drew from Big Brother but who really knows ¯\_(ツ)_/¯.

Georgia Tripos, The Bachelor Season Four

Georgia had a bit of a rough time on the show, never really getting the time with Richie she thought she deserved.

She also gave us one of the most expletive-filled limo interviews in the franchise's history, which was... fun. 

Since leaving the show Georgia has had a few brushes with the law.

Carlos Fang, The Bachelorette Season Two

Carlos appeared on Georgia Love's season of The Bachelorette. 

Carlos was an entrepreneur. He was also a stripper.

He gave Georgia a Tiffany and Co bracelet and was sure he was going to be the guy standing with her at the end of the series.

He was not.

Georgia didn't give him a rose at the very first rose ceremony and Carlos had to return to his life of doin' the business/stripping.
