Every season of The Bachelor and The Bachelorette, we get some weird job titles. Some of these are overly enforced by production for the sake of just trying to get people talking about at least something — otherwise, some of them are just quite frankly strange.
So, for Hannah Brown’s season started on Monday, we wanted to give you at least a small taste of some of the weirdness — and some of the job titles that are actually a part of the first press release that we got. We’re sure that we’ll get at least a little bit more insight on some of these. Otherwise, they’ll go home the first night and come two days later, we’ll just forget that they ever existed.
Joe, 30, The Box King from Chicago, IL – We guess this is being better than, say, the Box Prince? It feels like this is some sort of odd, self-appointed title that Joe gave himself before going on TV and selling a whole lot of boxes — or that’s at least our perception of it.
John Paul Jones, 24, John Paul Jones from Lanham, MD – Wait, so this guy’s title is really just his name? Maybe there is no job that can really match his greatness? We severely doubt the ability of anyone who lists off their full name like it’s the only thing that they can be called to win the competition.
Matthew, 23, a car bid spotter from Newport Beach, CA – What does a car bid spotter do? Is it like some sort of weird auctioneer? Do they just shout in a parking lot somewhere and say “I’ll pay that much for it?” (We want to like Matthew — great name, and we also love Newport Beach.)
Ryan, 25, a roller boy from Philadelphia, PA – We want to know the story about how he became a roller boy — Roller Boy also sounds like a great name for a campy superhero. Odds are, we get at least one first-night conversation here between him and Hannah.
Thomas, 27, an international pro basketball player from Detroit, MI – We want to know so much more about his story. We’re not actually making fun of this job at all. We just know that this is a tough, interesting career.
Sure, there are some other moderately-interesting jobs, from a pilot to a teacher to a contractor — really, we’re happy to see anyone who’s not a personal trainer who obviously wants to sell protein supplements on Instagram after the fact. We actually wish that someone with a super-strange job actually won this show or got far — most of these “jobs” are added after the fact, though, and with that, production wouldn’t set out to get someone an odd title and then change the narrative a little bit later.
We’ll back with more from Monday’s episode of The Bachelorette soon — stay tuned…
