From the moment Chad Johnson hit our Bachelorette screens, it was so clear that the Season 12 villain would be a a total pop culture sensation. He's obviously very good-looking (I mean, duh), and his attractiveness paired with his self confidence (amplified by being stuck in close quarters with 25 other men) manifested in the perfect reality TV show villain. Of course, whether Chad is actually as egotistical, meat-loving, and aggressive as he comes off in the show is something we'll never truly know. One thing's for sure, though: Chad certainly did "lean in" to the whole villain thing, as some of the best Bachelorette Chad tweets can attest.
Between Instagram posts macking on the other suitors' ex-girlfriends and Twitter potshots at his fellow former contestants, Chad's social media presence is an endless font of pomposity and hilarity. Chad throwing shade, dispensing priceless life pro tips, and clapping back at the haters is equally as hilarious as watching him react to his ever-growing band of fans, both famous and not.
