These Social Media Posts Say What We’re All Thinking After ‘The Bachelor’ Season 21 Premiere


There are a few times a year when American comes together to watch the same thing. The World Series, the Oscars, Presidential debates and … the premiere of The Bachelor. From celebrities to journalists to super-fans, there is never a lack of snark and fun on social media on Monday nights during Bachelor season. Let’s break down the best reactions.

Another contestant who had everyone talking was Corinne. She’s a 24-year-old “business owner” from California, but based on her intro package, she barely works at her dad’s company and spends more time with her nanny, who frequently brings her sliced cucumbers.

Then there was Liz, the woman who slept with Nick at Jade and Tanner’s wedding earlier this year. Nick, and Twitter, did not seem to think she was there for the right reasons:

And of course, Alexis, the dolphin/shark girl:

Some of the other contestants weren’t so memorable, but we know we’ll see them selling us a variety of products on Instagram in the coming weeks:

So far 2017 has been full of memes, gifs and jokes, and despite Her Campus’ worry that it’s all downhill, here’s hoping it’s a sign that this year the world will be a little bit lighter.
