The first few episodes of the season depict Hunter Montgomery as a fairly decent competitor. But when week five previews rolled around, Montgomery showed a different side that potentially cast him as a season one villain.

According to Sun, Montgomery is 5’10”, while various sources estimate Thurston to be between 5’4″ and 5’6. Montgomery’s stature is probably a big deal for fans who have gotten used to seeing Bachelor with tall contestants.
When Thurston’s season began, fans took to Twitter to ask about the height of the contestants. According to Yahoo, one viewer asked, “Well, is Katie short, or are all these guys tall?” Another fan expressed the same sentiment, asking, “Are all these men 7′ tall, or is Katie really short?”
Most of Thurston’s season’s competitors are athletes, and his height is over 6′ which makes Montgomery possibly the shortest of the season.
Montgomery was featured as the villain of the season
Montgomery was a go-getter, and he proved he would stop at nothing to end up with Katie. Her aggression didn’t fit with the other contestants and they soon confronted her and went to Thurston about her tendency to lie.
Thurston defended Montgomery but vomited after being so upset. The show recently came under fire when fans realized that showrunners hid Montgomery’s Tourette’s diagnosis. Fans called out the show for giving Montgomery an inappropriate edit, while exposing his tics for hating him without providing context for viewers.
