Bachelorette tonight LIVE – Michelle Young suitor Jamie breaks down & reveals mom was suicidal as fans slam Peter

BACHELORETTE Michelle Young's suitor Jamie Skaar broke down and revealed his mom was suicidal as fans took to social media to slam Peter Izzo.

As Jamie opened up about his life challenges to Michelle, he said: "When I was 24 my mom committed suicide."

Both appeared teary-eyed, as Michelle responded: "I don’t know you that well but I’m so proud of what you’ve come through and how you conduct yourself."

Meanwhile, Peter was named the "season's first villain" by Twitter fans.

One fan tweeted: "Peter solidifying his role of either villain or guy that gets WAY too into the group date games."

During the first group date, the contestants were challenged with a science experiment, a spelling contest, and musical chairs.

When they were instructed to spell narcissist, everyone spelled the word correctly, but one decided to write "Peter" instead.
