Thought Chad Johnson's behavior couldn't possibly get any worse? Think again.
Bachelor in Paradise stars Nick Viall and Sarah Herron visited E! News ahead of Monday night's episode of the ABC reality hit, which featured the exit of Chad, who managed to get belligerently drunk, threaten violence, and offend every cast member, especially Sarah, calling her a "one armed b--ch," all on the first night. Ding-dong, the meathead is gone! But it sounds like Chad may have gotten off easy, with Nick and Sarah revealing ABC actually didn't air the worst of his behavior. (Though they did confirm he definitely pooped his pants: "It absolutely happened," Nick said. "Like, you literally can't make that stuff up.")
"If anything, the show has always been limited by time constraints, there's a lot they didn't show," Nick told us of Chad's edit during his short time on BIP. "So if anything, it was probably worse than what you saw. They certainly did not exaggerate it." Sarah simply added, "It was worse!"
And while Chad issued an apology to Sarah on social media after the episode aired, Sarah said she doesn't believe it "for a second," explaining, "I think he apologized on social media because it gets him attention, but I haven't heard an ‘I'm sorry' from him directly. So I don't buy it and I don't forgive him yet."
During his tirade in the premiere, Sarah was the only cast member to finally stand up to Chad, and viewers cheered for her on social media, praising her for calling out the villain for his misogynistic behavior. Still, she was concerned about how the ordeal would play out on TV.
"It was hard to watch, but to be completely honest, I had a hard time dealing with it when I came home from Paradise," Sarah admitted. "I was really in a bad head space for a while. I was really sad and shooken up, because that's not what I went to Paradise for. I was dealing with a lot of anxiety and not sure how it was going to come across."
To hear more from Nick and Sarah, including what they think of Chad's behavior on social media, press play on our interview with them above now.
Bachelor in Paradise airs Mondays and Tuesdays at 8 p.m. on ABC.
