Fans are gearing up for the new season of The Bachelorette with Emily Maynard, which kicks off next week, and Emily recently revealed that she was aiming for a more conservative season. If that is really the case, then why did the network cast suitors with criminal backgrounds? Oh yeah, we have the dirt on several of Emily’s bachelors, and some of it may shock you! More after the jump.
Emily Maynard had hoped for more a conservative season of The Bachelorette, which kicks off next week with 25 hotties, ranging from race car drivers, to single dads, to felons? Several of Emily’s suitors have records, including Joe Gendreau, a 27-year-old Field Energy Advisor from Florida was reportedly found guilty of a misdemeanor that took place in September 2008. He was arrested for driving under the influence, and back in 2005 Gendreau was charged for urinating in public. Meanwhile, race car driver Arie Luyendyk Jr. has also been arrested in the past, once for driving on a suspended license, and again for not having a valid registration. Is anyone else wondering where ABC found these losers?
But those two fail to compare to Doug Clerget. It has been leaked out that Doug Clerget, a real estate agent from Seattle, actually has a violent criminal past. Clerget was arrested back in 2000 for allegedly assaulting his ex-girlfriend with a shotgun. According to a Star magazine report, an argument between the pair got so heated that things turned physical and he “pushed her and held her against the wall,” and it continued when he started firing shots in the backyard. Doug Clerget’s ex has also accused him of physically abusing her daughter in the past as well – yikes, this dude sounds scary, let’s hope he gets cut on the premiere!
