  1. Kasey Kahl ('The Bachelorette,' Season 6)

    Garton made quite the first impression in the show's 15th season thanks to a pair of fangs.

    Williams quit in the show's third week, admitting that he wasn't attracted to the Bachelorette.
  16. Trish Schneider ('The Bachelor,' Season 5)

    Caridi enticed viewers with her open-mouth gapes, interest in talking about "smart things," and dramatic end when she was left alone on a deserted beach in week six.
