Leo kicked off 'Bachelor in Paradise' after starting fight with fan favorite

On Bachelor in Paradise, Leo Dottavio of the long locks got into a physical altercation with fan favorite “Grocery Store Joe,” otherwise known as Joe Amabile. It should come as no surprise that the fight started over a woman. Leo was angry before Tuesday night’s rose ceremony because Kendall was going to give her rose to Joe instead of him. Kendall — who appears to have a burgeoning romance with Joe — had gone on a date with Leo, after which he immediately kissed another woman. When Kendall found out, Leo got mad at her.

Leo continued to blame Kendall with a toast before the ceremony. “This is a toast to Kendall,” Leo said. “We had a great first date, and it was one of the best first dates I’ve ever been on. It was a shame to find out that you were kind of full of s***.”

Joe responded, “Come on, Leo. Leo, let’s take it easy, Leo. You could be a little nicer.” After talking trash about everyone as a whole, Leo said to Kendall, “Good luck with grocery store bitch over there.”

Everyone was shocked but Joe, who calmly replied, “Hey, you wanna say it to my face?” Joe repeated his question as he followed Leo, who was walking away. Then, almost nose to nose with Joe, Leo said it again. As cast and crew rushed to break things up, Leo threw his drink on Joe and an actual fight ensued.

Leo was escorted out, and fans and cast alike were glad to see him go.

Bachelor in Paradise airs Mondays and Tuesdays at 8 p.m. on ABC. Watch clips and full episodes for free on Yahoo View.
