Hayden Markowitz responds to ‘Bachelorette’ behavior: ‘My lowest moment’

Published

on

“Bachelorette” contestant Hayden Markowitz is speaking out following the episode in which he was eliminated from the show.

“For those who watched tonight’s episode, you saw me at my absolute worst and lowest moment,” Markowitz wrote in a lengthy Instagram caption posted after the episode aired on Aug. 1.

In “The Bachelorette’s” fourth episode, which took place in France and aboard a cruise ship, tension reached a head between co-lead Rachel Recchia and Markowitz, culminating him being sent home to Florida.

But this wasn’t the first time the controversial contestant clashed with a lead. Previously, Markowitz told co-lead Gabby Windey she was “rough around the edges,” and said his “values” aligned more with Recchia’s. (Markowitz later said that Windey had used the phrase to describe herself, and he was repeating it back, and said he was “not the most eloquent with words” in an Instagram post). The comment, combined with other men rejecting her, upset Windey to the point that she had to end the group date early.

Behind-the-scenes, other contestants clocked Markowitz making disparaging comments about both co-leads. Markowitz allegedly used the word “b—-” to describe them, which was bleeped out during the broadcast. He also compared them to his ex-girlfriend and said he would be “settling” if he was with either lead.

“They don’t hold a candle to (my ex), and I don’t want to just settle. I can tell you right now, I don’t see how any guy here could be like, I’m f—— marrying these girls,” Markowitz said.

James Clarke, upon hearing Markowitz’s comments, called his behavior “disturbing.” He said, “It’s not how you should treat women at all.”

During the final group date before the rose ceremony, Clarke came forward and told Recchia what he had heard. Recchia then confronted Markowitz.

At first, Markowitz assumed that Recchia wanted to follow-up the conversation they recently had about his dog, who he said had three months to live following a cancer diagnosis and surgery. Markowitz had been miffed that Recchia left the conversation to speak to Tino Franco.

But Recchia didn’t want to talk about Rambo — she wanted him to address his comments, which he immediately denied.

“I don’t speak like that,” he said. “That’s not my character … that’s not what I said.” Recchia, skeptical, replied, “I just don’t believe you.” She said, “I really gave you the chance to own up to it … I can’t keep doing it.” She eliminated him.

Now, Markowitz is speaking out on social media about his behavior.

“However, my complete lapse of judgement was not only disappointing but it was absolutely unacceptable. I genuinely want to express my deepest apologies to both Gabby and Rachel for my actions,” Markowitz wrote in the caption of an Instagram post, alongside a photo from the season.

“I take full responsibility for not being the man I was raised to be in those moments, especially towards these two wonderful deserving ladies who I truly do respect.

“I really hate how this season ended, but this experience was not one that I was mentally or emotionally prepared for with the current things going on in my life,” he said.

He concluded the note by saying it was an “amazing experience” that he learned from, and hopes that Recchia and Windey “accept (his) apology.”

Neither Recchia nor Windey have addressed Markowitz on social media.

Women Are Sharing The Most Sexist Thing A Man Has Ever Told Them In A Professional Setting

Published

on

32.

“In college, I was hardworking, hungry, and eager. I had to be better than everyone else in the room as a music industry minor and videography major, which, at the time, were very male-dominated fields. I have many examples of inappropriate and nasty things done while I was a student and employee, but here’s the worst: One semester, I sought out an internship. My professor got me an interview with the manager of a band that happened to be my favorite band of all time. However, he sternly warned me, ‘Don’t go sleeping around with the band! I’m not going out on a limb to get you this internship just so you can fuck all the band members and cause mayhem! I don’t want to be responsible for another Yoko Ono!’ Then, during introductions, he winked and told the manager, ‘She’s pretty, but she’s smart, too! I already warned her about being a groupie and told her she isn’t allowed to flirt with the boys!'”

“I had done nothing but exude professionalism and express excitement for the professional opportunity up to that point. I certainly hadn’t said or done anything to suggest that was in it to ‘fuck the band.’ I was too stunned to say anything other than, ‘Okay…?’

It was horrifying, embarrassing, and degrading, but I hadn’t learned to find my voice and didn’t know what I didn’t have to take yet. The music industry ended up being a brutal industry to be in as a woman. I could be standing behind a mixing board in a venue with my hands on the knobs, and a band’s tech would ask me where our sound guy was. During introductions with new bands or agents, I was almost always asked whose girlfriend I was (I couldn’t possibly be in the room as a professional!).

I was also consistently told to not entice my male cohorts by being so sexy if I wanted to be respected and taken seriously — but also was told to be as sexy as possible for shows and events. Ultimately, I got the internship and established a lifelong relationship with everyone I worked with, and that manager went on to mentor me for years. Unfortunately, I don’t see a whole lot of progress in the music industry, even today.” —Anonymous, Virginia, 42
