A new season of “The Bachelorette” premiered on Monday. Michelle Young made an excellent Bachelorette, however suitor Ryan Fox left a few people feeling uncomfortable after Tayshia Adams and Kaitlyn Bristowe found his strategy notes.

Fox’s notes covered subjects like how to get more screen time, past cast members who he should try to emulate, how to get the best edit, and how to make it seem like you're interested.

Former cast members whose names appeared in the notes found it unsettling. Like Mike Johnson who tweeted, “I don’t know if I should feel offended because I only have one skill or is this a proud moment?” And when Young confronted Fox, his excuse also didn’t seem that genuine.

“Those were not notes written by me,” Fox explained. “Those were notes written by my friend's wife who watches The Bachelor. I haven't seen the show more than two hours, to be perfectly honest. I wrote notes on the way [when] I came here just so I can get an idea.”

Fox’s contradictory defense prompted Young to visit his room and read the notes for herself. She was visibly unnerved by what she read and asked Fox to exit the show.

“I am not okay with starting a relationship on red flags,” Young said. “You'll need to respect that I am going to choose to listen to my red flags. And so, unfortunately, I will be walking you out.”
