We knew that there was great comedic potential having Jimmy Kimmel on “The Bachelor” Monday night, but little did we know just how involved the guy was really going to be. In addition to this really awkward shower photo to the left, he’s also planning some of Chris Soules’ dates!
Remember how we wrote earlier that Chris was supposedly going to get a romantic date with Kaitlin Bristowe? Well, it turns out that Kimmel decided instead that the two parties should go to Costco. Hey, there’s some deals there! He can get some steaks in bulk for a cookout later in the season. We’re sure that there is probably some sort of romantic twist in here that the promo is not giving away, but we also feel like Kaitlyn was the perfect person for this. She’ll just laugh it off, whereas some other person could freak out about not getting the whole “dream” Bachelor date of roses and a fancy helicopter and romance on top of romance.
This promo below also hypes up that Jimmy is going to shock everyone with something that happens at the Rose Ceremony, but we’ll believe that when we see it. This very much feels like a case of cheesy editing designed to make you think that he is really going to infuriate the women. We really doubt that this is the case.
Ultimately, this may be a slightly unorthodox episode of the season, but it may end up being the funniest one we’ve ever seen. If there was ever a show that did need to lighten up here and there, this is probably it.
