Look, Everyone! Ellen Was On ‘The Bachelor: The Women Tell All!’
Everyone’s favorite troll, Ellen DeGeneres, took a clip from The Bachelor special The Women Tell All and did something marvelous with it. Watch the hilarity unfold here!
Okay, not REALLY—but because she’s Ellen DeGeneres, she took that wacky “The Women Tell All” Bachelor special that aired on Monday and did something wonderful with it. Thanks to the magic of editing, Ellen was able to digitally insert herself into the hot seat for a portion of the episode, and it’s GENIUS. Whose hot seat, you ask? Controversial contestant Courtney Robertson’s, of course. So what exactly happened when Ellen was faced with her old housemates? Here, watch it for yourselves (it’s amazing. I promise.):
I’ve noted before (fairly recently, actually) that I don’t follow The Bachelor, so I only have the vaguest idea of what this whole Courtney Robertson drama was about. From what I gather, she was a horrible, terrible, manipulative bi-otch to pretty much everyone ever, correct? Which, of course, is exactly what the makers of reality TV programming aim for: It ensures some good dramatic footage, which then can then sculpt as they see fit.
Or which Ellen can then take, edit, and spoof the heck out of—which, to be honest, I think is a better use for it. Granted, it’s possible that some of the humor is lost on me because I don’t actually watch The Bachelor, but I still think it’s pretty darn funny. It also points out how ridiculous the whole thing is in the first place. Score one for Ellen!
Also, how great does she look in that sparkly jacket? Win.
