JoJo Fletcher Dishes on 'Bachelorette' Frontrunner and Villain

Warning to fans of true love: This post contains Bachelorette spoilers.

Two episodes into the new season of The Bachelorette, there's already a a clear villain: Chad Johnson. Well, here's another reason to hate the guy.

Chad Johnson has a talent for causing friction between his fellow contestants and even JoJo, the woman he's wooing on the ABC "reality" show. (Pro tip: Don't call a woman "naggy" while you're role-playing a proposal.)

Now Johnson appears to be squatting on web domains, including sites related to his fellow contestants' names — which then redirect to his own Instagram account. Even Joelle-Fletcher.com (a.k.a. JoJo, the Bachelorette herself) redirects to Chad's Instagram.

And, if the domain snatcher really is The Bachelorette's Chad, he is also squatting on some porn domains, like TulsaSex.com — hot!

But his most recent buy-up appears to be domain-blocking his rival suitors on the show: RobbyHayes.com, DerekPeth.com, ChaseMcNary.com and AlexWoytkiw.com will all take you to RealChadJohnson's Instagram page and pictures like this:

The domain robbyhayes.com was purchased in April 2016 by Brian Johnson or brianchadjohnson@yahoo.com from Tulsa, Oklahoma — Johnson's home. Emails sent to the address were not returned. That email was used by a Chad as early as 2008.Mashable has reached out to ABC for confirmation of Chad's full name, but the network declined to comment.

(Once you get over the shock that his real first name may be Brian, you realize that of course Chad would do this. Chad is the human embodiment of "I'm not here to make friends.")

For further evidence, Johnson posted his first Instagram four weeks ago — right about the time the domain was registered, so the timing adds up. Since the domains of his fellow eligible bachelors' names were registered before they were announced as contestants of the show, whoever did it would have to have some insider information.

She's too cute for words 😀

So is Chad really behind this, or is someone trying to frame him? On Twitter, Johnson replied to Mashable Senior Tech Correspondent Christina Warren, implying he is behind the domains.

And, a closer look at brianchadjohnson@yahoo.com makes it seem likely that this is, in fact, Chad from The Bachelorette. The domains appear to be registered by someone born in 1987 (just like Chad) who is from Tulsa, Oklahoma (just like Chad). The address linked to the domains matches up with a fancy househis sister Tiffany Johnson is selling.

The phone number listed for the domains isn't listed publicly, but it is in the meta description for one of his real estate profiles, meaning it could have originally been shared publicly. Whatever the case, it's definitely linked to Chad.

There are dozens of domains dating back to January 2015 connected with the email address including OklahomaPorn, OklahomaGay.com, DJResurrection.com (what a DJ name!) and AttractionWiki.com.

You may not be surprised to learn that these domains were all registered with GoDaddy. Because, of course.

It's not clear why Johnson is squatting on the pornographic domain names as most appear to be unused or defunct. Still, it's not uncommon for individuals to buy domains as potential assets to resell for a profit.

The email address is also associated with other Bachelor-related domains registered with the email address, including TheChadelor.com, which, again, redirects to his Instagram account.

Additionally, most of the websites that aren't about sex or The Bachelorette have to do with real estate — specifically luxury real estate in Tulsa, OK.

Sound familiar?

A look at his Realtor.com profile indicates that he has been "an entrepreneur since age 13" and also considers himself a successful "website flipper," which is a nice way of saying domain squatter.

Auto trading is another one of the entrepreneurial ventures Johnson lists, which is backed up by his biography on Chinowth & Cohen Realtors' website. It reads: "enjoys restoring muscle cars and sports cars in his spare time."

This brings us to brianchadjohnson@yahoo.com's history posting on Corvette Forum. He's looking to buy a Corvette near Tulsa, and gets pretty angry in the process, seeming to think he's surrounded by losers and idiots.

Just like Chad from The Bachelorette!

So in all likelihood, Chad is behind this plan to take advantage of horny Oklahomans and digitally sabotage his competitors — and even JoJo, cementing his villain status.

Unless his actions, as he would declare, are being wildly misinterpreted and he did it all as a gift to his love.

For Bachelorette fans, the domains that he didn't register might be the most interesting part of this saga.

Johnson was not able to swoop in and grab EvanBass.com, because the url is already being used by an actor and improviser with the same name as The Bachelorette's resident Erectile Dysfunction Expert. Johnson also wasn't able to register the domain for sensitive singer-songwriter James Taylor's name for some reason.

However, some Bachelorette contestants' domain names are up for grabs, like James Spadafore a.k.a. the guy that listed his occupation as Bachelor Superfan, who was eliminated in the latest episode.

Does this mean that Johnson is accidentally giving spoilers for the show based on which domains he bothered buying? The URLs he bought all seem to be the names of viable contenders for JoJo's heart. We'll have to wait and see.

Until then, just sit back and enjoy this Furby meme he posted. You can reach it and some pictures of his abs, as always, by going to TheChadelor.com.
