The Bachelorette season 9 alum Michael Garofola, who tried to woo Desiree Hartsock and then popped up on season 2 of Bachelor in Paradise, sat down with Us Weekly Video for the second season 12 Bachelorette panel on May 31 and rehashed the most bizarre moments of the May 30 episode. He also shared his opinions on this season’s villain, Chad!
As seen in the video above, Garofola told Us about Bachelor mansion’s food situation, the bonding between the suitors and how awkward some of those group dates can be! Case in point: on Hartsock’s season, the men performed in a Soulja Boy music video. Never forget that moment in time!
The conversation quickly turned to protein powder and the food situation in the house. Unlike Chad, Garofola didn’t BYOPP (Bring Your Own Protein Powder): “I brought clothes and underwear.”
Answering the question on every viewer’s mind, he did say the food is definitely as good as it seems. “The nights of the cocktail parties are catered and it is delicious food,” he told Us. But he thinks producers might be playing up Chad’s meat obsession, “They made it a point to show that Chad was eating all that food. They hardly ever do that.”
