We may have just found the most dramatic Instagam photo of the season.

As The Bachelorette's JoJo Fletcher continues the search for her perfect man, former contestant Chad Johnson appears to be moving on with someone new.

This season's villain got Bachelor Nation talking when he shared a photo of himself kissing Hope Higginbotham. While some may look at the post on their newsfeed and think it's just your standard PDA picture, fans know that it's so much more.

As it turns out, Hope used to date Chad's co-star Robby Hayes. And no, they weren't exactly best bros this season.

"While traveling this weekend, our paths crossed and I finally had the opportunity to meet Hope Higginbotham in person. Let me just say, she is even more beautiful in person!" he wrote. "A great girl like her deserves so much better than someone who lies, cheats, and ends a four year long relationship in order to pursue fame on a tv show. You're amazing, I miss you already @hopealverta."

For the record, Robby has yet to comment on the post. In fact, he still has photos of himself hanging out with Hope on his Instagram page. But when you visit robbyhayes.com, it leads straight to Chad's Instagram. Interesting, right? 

Chad has proven to be quite a memorable contestant from The Bachelorette franchise. In fact, ABC confirmed this week that he would be on Bachelor in Paradise later this summer.

As for how Chad feels about all the attention surrounding him, he recently watched himself on TV and had an a-ha moment.

"So I finally watched the show at my sisters. Holy tits now I understand why some people hate me!" he captioned an Instagram video. "Haha but some parts were hilarious too. LOL"

The Bachelorette airs Monday night at 8 p.m. only on ABC.
