Last night, Richie Strahan graced my lounge room with his sandy blonde hair and awkward laugh. We’ve agreed on a summer wedding.
Just kidding (*ugly crying*). I’m talking about the season premiere of The Bachelor Australia 2016! Let’s be honest: the amount of crazy contestants and catfights just make it really great viewing material. I’m still not over last night’s episode so I just had to put together the FUNNIEST moments from The Bachelor so far. I can’t wait for the next episode.
To start off the night, Richie shares he’s nervous in a not-so-cute way…
The ladies start to arrive one by one and there’s definitely some interesting characters this season. Like this girl, who LOOOVES bacon!
Like, really loves it. She even gave Richie bacon roses! And she has a bacon tattoo. This seems like a deeply committed relationship. Will there be room for Richie in her life?
We’re then introduced to a fairy- and unicorn-loving girl called Janey, who decided to play the part of Cinderella for Richie…
She seemed to be pretty proud of herself. I’m never this proud of myself when I leave a shoe somewhere.
We meet Vintaea, aka the Swearinator…
Unfortunately, she said goodbye in the rose ceremony. SPOILER. It’s possible she realised her potty mouth wasn’t going to do her any favours for Richie’s heart. Or she might have been deeply regretting the fact that she didn’t leave a shoe or bring bacon roses. There’s just no coming back from that.
One of the best girls to ever walk through the Bachelor mansion gates is none other than Eliza, the singer extraordinaire (so she thinks) who wrote and sang for Richie
As the episode went on, Eliza was really the only one having a bit of fun.
Once all the girls were somewhat settled, Osher stepped in to reveal there was a special rose up for grabs…
OK, so it’s not a cool bananas rose (damn it). It’s the white rose that gives one lucky girl time away with Richie in a secret hideaway.
The token villain of the series, Keira, decided she would be up-front about what she wanted…
Meanwhile, the girls were getting restless when Richie was chatting with other potentials and decided to take it out on each other… with fake slaps? Brutal.
The rose went to some lucky duck called Alex and all Keira wanted to do was go to…
After some hearts shattered, it was time for more romantic carnage at the rose ceremony. Richie plays it way cool. Take this seriously, Richie. You look like you’re saying g’day to your mates at a football club.
The roses were handed out and before long, good ol’ Sasha from Russia decided it was time for a snack. I think she’s confused The Bachelor with The Hunger Games. May the odds be ever in your favour, Sasha.
Unfortunately the night couldn’t end without Richie breaking some hearts.
I didn’t get a rose either, honey. I feel ya.
