We are obviously obsessed with The Bachelor and The Bachelorette in Australia, but no one does it like the Americans. They’ve done 21 seasons of The Bachelor and 12 seasons of The Bachelorette (not to mention all the other spin-offs), and if you thought OUR shows were more about drama than love, then you haven’t seen their #scandalous version.
Among the millions of fans who are part of ‘Bachelor Nation’ are some of the most famous people in the world. Did you know all of these stars also can’t get enough? If you’ve ever hated yourself for being so addicted, you’re in good company… and if you’ve ever wanted an A-list star to know your name, apply for The Bachelor.
If you know anything about the current season with Nick Viall, you’ll know about Corinne Olympios, the show’s ‘villain.’ Amanda kinda shaded Corinne by posting this video on Twitter – but it’s hilarious ’cos Corinne could have walked out the door in a much easier way…
Anna Kendrick has serious thoughts and questions about The Bachelor (like all of us). She’s into the current season but tweeted “#IHateMyself” while watching it.
Also, she started a Twitter friendship with one of the previous Bachelorettes, Kaitlyn Bristowe, and said at the time, “If my boyfriend left me for her, I’d get it.”
Emma’s a huge Bachelor fan and was recently asked by Jimmy Kimmel to predict the woman who’ll win Nick’s heart. “I don’t see an obvious choice,” she said.
Andrew revealed in 2012 that he unwinds by watching heaps of reality TV. “I wanna watch, like, The Voice or The Bachelor,” he told Total Film. “Don’t be surprised by that,” he added, “it’s the greatest show on TV!” So it’s probably safe to say Andrew and Emma shared a few Bachelor-watching dates when they were together…
Jen is such a HUGE fan that when the women were revealed for Nick’s season, Jimmy Kimmel got her to predict who she thought would make the top four. Her reasoning for each person was hilarious.
OK, so maybe Ryan got into The Bachelor for Deadpool promotion reasons, but if you can mix business with pleasure…
When Lea appeared on Jimmy Kimmel’s show in 2015 she lost her shit, because the talk show host was fresh off making a cameo on the dating show. She wanted to talk more about Jimmy on The Bachelor than herself, saying, “I am so obsessed, it’s like ridiculously unhealthy.”
Sean and Charlize are no longer a thing, but when they were, one of their favourite things to do was watch The Bachelor together. On Jimmy Kimmel’s show in 2015 – OK, so Jimmy is obvs the ultimate fan – Sean outed himself as a fan, and revealed he was #TeamKaitlyn.
John Mayer is a proud Bachelor fan and he won’t apologise for it! He told Ellen DeGeneres in 2012, “I don’t even feel like it’s my fault for liking it. It’s not a guilty pleasure. It’s designed to be a pleasure.”
OK, so Jen’s a Real Housewives girl through-and-through, but she’s partial to The Bachelor, too. Chris Harrison, the long-time host of the U.S. series (their Osher Günsberg), said of the time he met the Oscar-winning actress, “Jennifer Lawrence was awesome... I was really looking forward to meeting her. And then she walks up and she tells me how much she loves [the show]. I’m like, ‘You like The Bachelor?’ and she was like, ‘Duh, I’m a girl.’”
