As Chad's only friend on The Bachelorette last season, Daniel never inspired high hopes in us as viewers. But we also didn't expect him to be so disappointing so soon on Bachelor In Paradise. His maple syrup intro on the show only speaks to his apparent douchiness, but Daniel's comments about the women on Bachelor In Paradise are making him memorable for different reasons. Upon meeting the first few gorgeous women, he was disappointed — actually put off, saying the girls are "nothing I would touch." Basically, he's been hanging out with Chad far too much. Unless of course Daniel has always been this awful (and blind).
This is after Daniel told producers that he has super high standards and that he is an eagle looking for another eagle, possibly a pterodactyl, but definitely not a pigeon. Because those are totally all birds and in the same category, right? He also said, "I just hope I meet a great girl," so of course as viewers we were all like, "Aww okay Daniel, you can do this." Then he had to refer to the women of Bachelor In Paradise as stray dogs. Like, is this real life right now?
Bachelor In Paradise apparently brings out the absolute jerk in Daniel. As in, he's probably going to be worse than Chad this season, if the beginning of the season premiere is any indication. And Daniel never stops, either, as he went on to compare the women of Bachelor In Paradise to fruit, stating that he's looking for something/someone "succulent and juicy" but that "so far the fruit here looks like they've been bruised in transportation." So yeah, he has something awful to say about almost all of the women and to all of the women.
At this rate, it's going to take a special kind of clueless woman to feel something for Daniel, because as it stands, you probably shouldn't wish such a guy on your worst enemy. And while he might be worse than Chad when it comes to interacting with women, the two of them together this season on Bachelor In Paradise looks like it's going to be a case of two immature and idiotic schoolboys influencing and bringing out the worst in each other. Fun, right?
Luckily, most of the women on Bachelor In Paradise can see through Daniel so far, but for someone who "loves to rate women," it's going to be a rude awakening for Daniel when he realizes just how repulsive he is. I hope.
