* MoneyShot: If female, someone who didn't get a rose is invariably shown crying on the way out.
* TheScrappy: Several contestents and Bachelor/Bachelorette's for a multitude of reasons, but special mention goes to Bachelor Juan Pablo for being an incredible narcissist even by the shows standards. Then there are his comments that there would never be a Gay Bachelor/Bachelorette because it would be too "Perverted" for basic cable. Not to mention that he came off as offended the question was even asked.
* StrawmanHasAPoint: the popularity of fan-favorite Peter Kraus during Rachel's season went downhill after he admitted he didn't know if he would feel ready to propose to her. Keep in mind, however, in the early seasons of the show, it was common for the Bachelor to not propose to his pick, and the contestants hardly spend any time with the Bachelor/Bachelorette by the time of the finale, and only go on a handful of dates at most.
