One of the reasons millions keep tuning in to The Bachelor and The Bachelorette isn't to see people falling in love, but rather to witness the drama that unfolds while they attempt to do so on TV.

With 16 seasons of The Bachelor and eight seasons of The Bachelorette already under ABC's belt, there have certainly been some contestants who caused a stir, to say the least.

One contestant who has people talking during this current season of The Bachelorette -- featuring single mom Emily Mayard -- is Kalon McMahon. He famously referred to Mayard's 6-year-old daughter Ricki as "baggage." A fellow contestant told Maynard, 26, about the comment, and she promptly had him leave the show.

Who are 10 more of these bad boys -- and girls -- and what did they do to get people talking?

From Bentley Williams, who competed on Ashley Hebert's season of The Bachelorette in 2011, to the most recent The Bachelor winner Courtney Robertson -- she got engaged to Ben Flajnik at the end of the season earlier this year -- click through the gallery for the full breakdown.

Though McMahon was kicked off The Bachelorette, he's returning for Season 3 of Bachelor Pad, and is now currently dating Lindzi Cox, who was the runner-up during Flajnik's season of the hit ABC show.

Will you tune in to Bachelor Pad when it premieres on Monday July 23? Sound off in the comments.
