While speaking to The Virginian-Pilot, Clayton Echard stated that he felt he was “portrayed” unfairly during his season of “The Bachelor.” He said that he was disgusted by his negative portrayal on the show.
“Watching [my season] back, I was embarrassed and disgusted by my actions and the way I was portrayed or seen on TV.”
Clayton Echard further stated that he believes he was portrayed to be a villain on the show. This is because many fans started hating him after the finale as well.
“Ultimately, I had to live with the fact that my narrative is what was shown. And that was hard because that’s not really who I am.
I don’t feel that what I was on the show is who I truthfully am, but I did those things, I became that person.”
The reality TV star, 29, called his season “a train wreck” and added that he was “shocked” that “drama was prioritized over the love story.” Regardless, the season was a disaster for many and that is not changing anytime soon
