With just six guys left in the running on JoJo Fletcher‘s season of The Bachelorette, the stakes are higher than ever – so who’s going home next?

Former Bachelor star Bob Guiney stopped by PEOPLE Now to weigh in on who he thinks will be eliminated on Monday’s episode – and how the show has changed since he starred on the very first season of The Bachelorette back in 2003.

“Watching this season unfold is crazy,” he said. “When I was on The Bachelorette – which I know sounds like I walked uphill both ways to school and stuff – but back in the day, we all got along. I think it was kind of interesting. We were really, genuinely buddies and the guys now have gotten a lot more catty.”

Indeed, tensions have been running high among the men this season (#neverforget #ChadtotheBone), and Guiney thinks James Taylor‘s spat with Jordan Rodgers on the most recent episode could end up costing him his chance.

“I’ve got to say, singer/songwriter James Taylor seems very sweet, and in the earlier episodes I really liked him, but last week when he started kind of going off the rails and throwing his buddies under the bus, it seemed like desperation to me,” said Guiney, 45. “It went from being this sincere guy who was kind and looking out for her best interests to being kind of a scared puppy who felt like he was on the chopping block.”

“I couldn’t hear it one more time – I mean, Lord knows I make a ton of fat jokes in life and I did on the The Bachelorette as well, but it was like, ‘Enough, dude. You’re good enough. You’re there. Get over it,’ ” Guiney continued. “Self-deprecation when it’s humorous is funny, self-deprecation when it’s pitiful is pitiful.”
