Bachelor in Paradise’s Leo Dottavio’s Twitter Feuds: Everything We Know

Bachelor brawls? Leo Dottavio, who vied for Becca Kufrin’s affections on The Bachelorette season 14, has caused quite a commotion in Bachelor Nation after feuding with many of the franchise’s fan favorites via Twitter in since-deleted posts.

Things got heated after Leo noticed several tweets mocking his behavior on the current season of Bachelor in Paradise. The stuntman came under fire for locking lips with Chelsea Roy after his seemingly successful date with Kendall Long. The situation escalated at the rose ceremony after Leo got into a physical altercation with Kendall’s other love interest, Joe Amabile, before leaving the show on his own terms.

Called Out

Amanda Stanton poked fun at Leo on August 28, 2018, after tweeting about him being fired from Universal Studios’ WaterWorld show. Leo didn’t take well to Amanda’s remarks and, according to the lifestyle blogger, he sent her a DM calling her a “piece of s—t.” Amanda informed her fans about the alleged message, writing, “I guess he can never blame ‘editing.’” Leo quipped back, “I don’t even know who you are but it’s pathetic. Faux ass celeb. Find some other way to stay relevant.”

Tensions Rising

Leo went after Tanner Tolbert on August 29, 2018, after the Kansas resident tweeted, “I like rats more than I like snakes.” Leo replied, “Hey buddy why don’t we settle this old school? Put some gloves on step in the ring? Next time you’re in LA maybe we can do that. Whoever loses donates 5k to charity. Heck I’ll let you wear head gear. When I know you out can I stand over you and call you a beta?” Tanner clapped back, “Can we just skip it and I’ll donate the $5k toward getting you some therapy???”

Battling a Bachelor

Nick Viall and Leo exchanged a war of words on August 29 after Nick called out Leo for tweeting that he suffers from “extreme narcissism.”


“Breaking news: Self proclaimed Alpha suggests Charity boxing match with someone they have a clear physical advantage over as means to inflate their own ego all while further demonstrating their deep insecurities,” Nick wrote. Leo clapped back shortly after, calling Nick “soft, a keyboard warrior, a sad excuse of a man and a terrible actor.”

Dean Playing Defense

Dean Unglert also got involved on August 29 when he defended Nick and Tanner, which prompted Leo to shoot back, “Dean what’s up. What you weighing in now a days?” The hunky start-up recruiter responded, “Thank goodness for all this talk of ‘being a man’ and ‘manning up’ lately. I would have forgotten we’re living in the 1920’s without it!” Leo had the last word, tweeting back, “Manning up might stop one coward with a gun from shooting up a school. Having a sense of pride in being a man can do that. Our job is to protect. No ‘man’ would ever shoot up a school.”
