After The Bachelor premiered on Monday, we put up a poll asking who you think will be the villain of Arie's season. The results are in, and they're not surprising: Chelsea, who was set up as the villain in the premiere, stole the poll with 59 percent of the vote.
Chelsea was very aggressive from the jump, stealing Arie away for the first conversation of the night, then taking a second turn with him before some women had talked to him once. She kissed him that time. She was rewarded with the first impression rose, which, combined with some snarky comments about Maquel, marked her as the one the whole house didn't like.
Chelsea is replaying Olivia's storyline from two years ago. They even look alike.
But Olivia got cut halfway through the season during a 2-on-1 date, and then Becca took her spot as the villain. So if Chelsea gets eliminated on this season's 2-on-1, someone will have to step in as the secondary villain. And the second-place vote getter was Krystal, the yoga instructor from San Diego. She got 15 percent of the vote.
Third place was a tie between Bekah, who seemed really cool on the first night but doesn't seem to be afraid of conflict, which could mean she gets painted as a bully; and Maquel, who is very blonde in a way that could get her portrayed as icy. They both got 7 percent.
We also did a poll of who TV Guide readers think will win Arie's season; the results are here.
The Bachelor airs Mondays at 8/7c on ABC.
