When we first wrote about the star-studded spoof of “The Bachelor” entitled “Burning Love,” we praised it for being one of the boldest takes on a reality TV franchise yet. Ben Stiller is the executive producer of the web series starring Ken Marino, and it sports a rather elaborate guest cast including Malin Akerman, Michael Ian Black, and “House of Lies” star Kristen Bell.
Unfortunately, the new episode of the show released this week did not end up going to well for Bell’s character at all. Despite her breaking out of her uptight Christian shell for some racy jokes during a comedy-themed group date, she still found herself in great danger of not getting a hose (this show’s version of rose) at the end of the night.
We won’t spoil just what happens at the end here, but we will say it may very well have you rolling on the floor laughing. Is it the same sort of reveal that we saw earlier this season with Jennifer Aniston inside of a panda suit? No, but it still makes this web series worth watching — and typically these sort of parodies get old after a few minutes.
Are you loving watching this all play out as much as we are?
