Origins of “Chad”

Reddit View
February 12, 2019

It's 2016. Boys everywhere continue to grow up lost and confused, lacking a male figure to look up to. Enter the OG pussy slayer: Chad Johnson. No not the football player, but this guy made a name for himself on season 12 of the bachelorette. There's even a clip of all the times his name was said.

Anyways, the dude is funny as shit and red-pilled as fuck. Check out some highlights from the short time he was on. If you are trying to imagine dark-triad, this guy displays characteristics, although he definitely goes for being straight up savage rather than manipulative. If he went for being more cunning and less of a hot head he'd be on his way up the corporate ladder.

Mainly wanted to put this out there for your entertainment but I guess the question would be does anyone know if the coined term "chad" predated 2016?

Gold. Funny how all the guys think he's bad, and they assume they should be chasing g the woman.

What he says is just plain logic. How the fuck would they know if they 'love' a girl who they just met??

Made me laugh

[–]GucciGangBucks21 points22 points  (0 children) | Copy

Appears this guy made it to the final 3 too lol

[–]want2knw74 points75 points  (0 children) | Copy

Bro thank you so much for sharing this guy is a legend

Simple as that

I watched this with one of my girls at the time. Fucking hilarious. That guy saved that crap show. Daniel was pretty funny, too. They were both clearly on there just to fuck around.

On another note, watch the bachelor / bachelorette for great examples of how not to fucking act around women.

"We are a bunch of butthurt dudes who are gonna confront you. Slightly."

Man, what a fucking fantastic quote.

[–]IvyExcess86 points87 points  (1 child) | Copy

This is gold. Thanks for sharing.

[–]tyronethejabrone38 points39 points  (0 children) | Copy

I’ve watched it at least 10 times. Cracks me up

[–]Nfuckedmeup44 points45 points  (0 children) | Copy

Fucking gold. Really boosted my mood thanks.

[–]TheRedTriad29 points30 points  (7 children) | Copy

This video makes him look really alpha but check “Chad tells of Chris Harrison ” before you start worshiping him.

None the less, the video is hilarious.

[–]Nfuckedmeup15 points16 points  (2 children) | Copy

Fucking CRABS

[–]MatrixofLe3adership11 points12 points  (1 child) | Copy

Well first of all I completely agree that those crabs need to get fucked. This video honestly makes me admire him even more, but idk what all the context of these shows are.

Also every one of those women would happily fuck his brains out.

[–]markinsinz78 points9 points  (2 children) | Copy

You have to know that, this particularshow Bach in paradise controls quite a bit what these people can say - meaning participants are instructed to truly try and fall in love and go on with the blue pill thing.

Problem is this Chad is too alpha - he needs to control his environment. Dude grew up not being pushed around by anyone or anything. So for him to be under such control by the production team as well as other participants it's shit

But he's Chad and in real world he gets all the pussy he wants maybe not actual power since he doesn't appear machievillian enough but I've seen plenty of super good looking people that are dumb in manipulation but high in status.

A better example is that Jordan guy in BIP season 5

[–]cafeitalia18 points19 points  (1 child) | Copy

Real alpha is the one who controls his anger and emotions. He roars only when there is threat to him or his family pact. In this video this guy acts like a sissy who tries to appear alpha.

[–]NabroleonBonaparte13 points14 points  (0 children) | Copy

He was literally being harassed by the other men

Evidence at 2:50

Alpha doesn’t mean let people fuck with you

[–]masterpiece00-1 points0 points  (0 children) | Copy

Why the fuck is there a chick with no arm? wtf!

[–]alphabachelor26 points27 points  (2 children) | Copy

Years ago, Chad was called Biff.

The concept of Chad/Biff is eternal. It’s just the name that changes.

[–]apost549 points10 points  (0 children) | Copy

Biff flunked math and lost his football scholarship.

[–]totallyunqualified_3 points4 points  (0 children) | Copy

What, and Beta Bob was called Marty McFly who travelled back in time to fuck your mom?

[–][deleted] 21 points22 points  (0 children) | Copy

Wish I had an older brother just like him.

While not exactly a "chad" by TRP terms , the guy I will now link to is probably the most charismatic reality tv show player ever - check out Will Kirby! He's a doctor and incredibly well spoken. Had women fall in love with him in both of his seasons. (Watch at least the first two minutes)

If you want to see how he manipulated an entire group of people and won his season, check this out -

[–][deleted] 4 points5 points  (0 children) | Copy

Lmao. “Pull the mask off” instant sociopath giveaway.

[–]yumyumgivemesome4 points5 points  (1 child) | Copy

And the way he was able to get under the meathead's skin in the scenes after the speech was absolutely brilliant. Watch the insecure dude's body language, how he turns to face away from Will, how he puts a hat on to cover up his forehead wrinkles. The way Will broke him down was straight up surgical.

[–]moltenw3 points4 points  (0 children) | Copy


I do think that his original season showed a better representation of what he really is (the second video I linked is goldmine imo)

[–]KaiSmashSmashSawmash 1 points [recovered]  (4 children) | Copy

So should we all be openly red pulled like the almighty chad on the show

[–]BPasFuck58 points59 points  (3 children) | Copy

No. Most guys here at asktrp would not be able to pull it off.

For one-- it would not be congruent with their normal behavior.

Guarantee-- this guy does not act quite so freely in his personal life. In this situation-- he doesn't give a shit about the other men. And he doesn't give a shit about the bachelorette. He has a producer off camera, encouraging him to be controversial-- to shit on those other dudes.

Because he is in a special one of a kind situation, he freely does so.

In person, away from the cameras, he is probably a bit milder in his behavior.

Doesn't mean you can't learn a thing or two from what he's doing, and contrasting it with those betas. Just realize that your mileage will probably vary from his.

[–]pridebrah15 points16 points  (0 children) | Copy

Good post. Building off this I'd recommend just taking the underlying principles here, not necessarily emulating the person. Things like frame, not DEER'ing, lifting, being mindful of appearance in general, not fearing being polarizing etc.

[–]WoodWizzy87-1 points0 points  (0 children) | Copy

He’s like omarossa on the first “apprentice” with trump. I seriously doubt Michael Clarke Duncan would’ve married a chick that crazy in real life

[–]stat14903 points4 points  (0 children) | Copy

Yep Chad is hilarious. My friend was watching the show with his fiancé and told me this dude is his favorite, and showed me some clips of him. Realest dude on the show lol

[–]MatrixofLe3adership4 points5 points  (0 children) | Copy

Great, now I'm upset that I can't take an IV of red meat. Fuck you, Crab.

[–]mrpoopistan6 points7 points  (0 children) | Copy

If he went for being more cunning and less of a hot head he'd be on his way up the corporate ladder.

If he went that direction, he wouldn't have made it past the casting director.

Also, minimal research gives the actual origin . . .

[–]ThrowawayAccountPass5 points6 points  (0 children) | Copy

Obviously a newfag who cant triforce.

Chad is being used this way for the better part of the 21st century. Popular names also include

Tyrone: the Black Chad

Chads and Tyrones are the opposite of nice guys but not quite

The Female version of a Chad is a Stacy who will cuck any man at any given time no 2nd thots(plz kill me very dad joke now plz kill me again)

And there is also Becky who is the girls beta boiis get to fuck sometimes

Most of these are incel terminology, sprung around 2006

It's an old trope shown in TV shows and movies... Chad is just a filler name.

[–]JarHeadJoseph0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Haha this guy would be awesome to have a beer with

[–]i_love_chicks0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

I remember watching this season specifically to see Chad. The guys is so damn funny. I was so bummed he didn't stick around. Legend.

[–]lululenox0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

This actually made me watch a few episodes of that season and my God that man is a fucking legend. He keeps everything real and calls everyone else out on their blue pill/nice guy mindset and behavior and gets all the betas triggered and takes up all their headspace. It's absolutely hilarious and also great RP learning material. He only got eliminated too cause all the other guys hated him and it was causing problems so it kinda forced the chicks hands but you could tell the girl was into him the most the whole time lol

[–]Aokp0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Hahahaha this guy is a legend

[–]SICFJC0 points1 point  (2 children) | Copy

Is there a question here?

Wrong sub

[–]askmrcia2 points3 points  (0 children) | Copy

I honestly can't believe guys here watch that trash show. Couldn't even make it all the way through the video

[–]tyronethejabrone1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

Don’t make a comment if you’re not going to read the 3 fucking paragraphs

[–]masterpiece00-1 points0 points  (0 children) | Copy

Seems likes he's gay.

You can kill a man, but you can't kill an idea.
