The volatile 28-year-old luxury real estate agent, who failed to receive a rose from JoJo Fletcher on Tuesday’s June 7 episode, caused more than enough drama in the mansion during his time on season 12.

The former Marine got physically aggressive with Fletcher’s other suitors, punched a door and even threatened to “cut everyone here’s legs off,” causing producers to have to hire an onsite security guard to watch over the loose cannon.
