HOLLAND, NETHERLANDS: Some people just can't handle rejections at all, and it looks like 'The Bachelorette' Season 19's contestant Tino Franco is one of those people. The 28-year-old California native has gotten used to being Rachel Recchia's top pick after bagging the first impression rose, and even winning the group date challenges. So, when Rachel decided to hand her first hometown date rose to Tyler Norris, Tino had a mini meltdown of sorts.

The suitor immediately stormed off the scene and began angrily chatting away with the producer about how despite him "earning" the rose by winning the group date challenge, he was disappointed with Rachel's decision to give Tyler the rose. Tino began feeling so insecure over Rachel's move that he began second-guessing if they even had a genuine connection between them. Ironically, while Tino was busy self-doubting his connection, the other suitors were complaining amongst themselves about how Tino was the strongest frontrunner for Rachel's heart.

During the rose ceremony, when Tino finally got his hands on the coveted final rose from Rachel, he heaved a huge sigh of relief while pointing out how he deserved it all along. After watching Tino's 'sore loser' attitude on not getting the first rose from Rachel and his choice of words such as 'earn' and 'deserve' while describing his connection with her, fans dubbed him an 'entitled conceited man'. 

A fan tweeted, "EARNED??? Tino is one entitled conceited man #TheBachelorette #TheBachelorettes." "Tino out here like roses are earned on a points system. my guy this is not the challenge blink twice if you know where you are #thebachelorette," wrote a fan. "The way Tino said he "earned" the rose makes me feel like he just views this as a game. I don't trust him #TheBachelorette," commented a fan. "Tino has a very entitled attitude. I’ve noticed it the past few weeks. That’s why I don’t understand all the BN Tino love. #thebachelorette," added a fan.

Some fans even began predicting the couple's split if Rachel and Tino ended up together. A fan shared, "Tino gave me bad vibes the minute he walked in. I already foresee their ig story breakup #thebachelorette." "Tino was acting weird the whole episode… even before the mini meltdown. Kinda concerning for the “frontrunner” #TheBachelorette," pointed out a fan. "Tino needs to calm down and realize the world does not revolve around him. #TheBachelorette #bachelorette," expressed a fan. "I’m sorry, I have to say it, Tino is bad juju / f***boy vibes for days. Maybe it’s bc I’m comparing him to our prince Zach? Makes me feel like there’s not a genuine bone in Tino’s body. #bachelorette  #TheBachelorette," observed a fan.





'The Bachelorette' Season 19 airs on Mondays at 8 pm ET/PT on ABC.
