Whether you love them or love to hate them, these reality-show villains are super hot. You can’t help but be attracted to meat-eating meathead Chad Johnson from JoJo Fletcher’s season of The Bachelorette, or America’s Next Top Model contestant Jade Cole, who is definitely not “America’s Next Top Best Friend.” You know they’re bad, and you probably groan every time they’re on the screen, but there’s a reason the Kardashians went out with Scott Disick, Tristan Thompson and Lamar Odom. They’re terrible, they’re good TV -- and they’re good-looking!
Frequently, these baddies' good looks are the root cause of their villainy. Much like The Bachelorette’s Jordan Kimball, they believe themselves to be too hot to follow the rules, too shiny-haired and ripped to be nice to their castmates. As proved by Vanderpump Rules star James Kennedy, they don’t care if they cause drama or tears, their hot faces and bodies will likely get them out of whatever situation they cause.
There are villains on every reality show, but we have selected the absolute hottest from Big Brother, The Bachelor, The Bachelorette, The Amazing Race, RuPaul's Drag Race, Selling Sunset, Keeping Up With the Kardashians, Laguna Beach, The Apprentice and more. Keep scrolling to see our picks for the hottest reality-TV villains. We know you hate them, but we also know you can't stop gawking at them!
Danielle Staub, 'The Real Housewives of New Jersey'
There is no one leggy Danielle Stuab wouldn’t fight with on The Real Housewives of New Jersey. In her intro, Staub famously said: “You either love me or hate me. There is no in-between with me.” Unfortunately, most people felt the latter, and Staub left the show.prevnext
Kenya Moore, 'The Real Housewives of Atlanta'
Whether she wants to admit it or not, Kenya Moore was the villain of Real Housewives of Atlanta. The former actress seems to love nothing more than to come when she isn't called for, making every situation about her. At least she looks amazing while doing it!prevnext
Juan Pablo Galavis, 'The Bachelor'
No one wanted to fall in love with Juan Pablo, not even the contestants on Season 18 of The Bachelor. Could it be his anti-gay sentiments? Or the fact that he was just downright rude to the women he was supposed to be dating? He was actually pretty cute, but was he too awful for that to really even matter?prevnext
Farrah Abraham, 'Teen Mom'
Teen Mom and Celebrity Big Brother UK star Farrah Abraham always seems to wind up as the villain. But no matter if she’s fighting with fellow teen moms or giving her daughter a ton of money for losing a tooth, Abraham stays hot.prevnext

Brandi Glanville, 'The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills'

Everyone thought Khloé Kardashian was in a stable, happy relationship until Tristan Thompson showed his true colors, cheating on her with several women, including Kylie Jenner’s former BFF, Jordyn Woods.

Colton Underwood, 'The Bachelor'
Colton was the biggest villain of Season 23 of the Bachelor -- and he was the star of the show! The guy wouldn't take no for an answer from his now-girlfriend–Cassie Randolph. His broad shoulders and sparkly blue eyes only slightly make up for the way he treated Tayisha Adams and Hannah Godwin during fantasy suites. We said SLIGHTLY!prevnext
Courtney Robertson, 'The Bachelor'
This Season 16 Bachelor contestant was so despised she was booed during the live reunion. (But she's still toned, tanned and gorgeous.)prevnext

Fans have frequently referred to this Drag Race star as a supervillain. Luckily her lewks were super-fierce.prevnext
Alex Woytkiw, 'The Bachelorette'

Lamar Odom, 'Keeping Up With the Kardashians'
Lam-Lam is a villain because he broke Khloé Kardashian’s heart -- and ours. Until we found out he was a serial cheater, we loved watching him and his sweet KUWTK marriage.prev
