In the spirit of free-flowing roses, champagne and drama, let's take a look back at all of the contestants that we loved to hate over the years – and a few we just plain hated.

Is The Bachelor's Juan Pablo Galavis Good Luck Chuck? We Examine the Evidence

With the announcement that yet another contestant from Juan Pablo Galavis's season of The Bachelor has gotten engaged, it's time for us to wonder: Is Galavis, 33, the embodiment of a 2007 rom-com starring Dane Cook and Jessica Alba?

Sharleen Joynt is officially the sixth woman from Galavis's season to benefit from the former Bachelor as a sexual lucky charm. The sixth. Of course, not all of the women on this list entered Galavis's fantasy suite, but they did, undeniably, benefit from his aura.
