Colton Underwood’s season of The Bachelor has left us collectively scratching our heads. It’s not just that he inexplicably chose the clearly ambivalent Cassie. It’s that producers seem to have completely lost it an have chosen Hannah B. to be our next Bachelorette. As if her clear instability wasn’t a red flag, we’ve seen on The Bachelor, and especially in this finale, that she is nearly incapable of expressing herself.
Fans of the show weren’t shy in expressing their disbelief at the entire two hour finale. They were quick to shade Colton, Cassie, producers, Hannah B., and even musical guest Air Supply on Twitter. It’s been a wild ride.
Well, that was two hours of our life that we’ll never get back. Last night Chris Harrison took us on a journey to see how Colton’s fence jump ended and to watch Colton cry on the shoulders of two women that clearly deserve better. We’re not the only ones who think these finale episodes are a total shit show. Twitter, as usual, went wild with the reactions, gifs, and memes. We’ve put together the cream of the crop, and you can check out last week’s hilarious memes here.
The moment that all fans of ‘The Bachelor’ have been waiting for finally happened last night – the fence jumping moment that has been teased since episode 1. While we still have a two-night finale to look forward to, a whole lotta drama happened (and we can expect more during tonight’s edition of Women Tell All).
First, Tayshia and Colton shared a romantic helicopter ride to a dreamy cliffside castle, where the pair made a lot of virginity jokes. Despite a lot of ogling and even a nip slip, Colton and Tayshia opted against a night of Fantasy Suite deflowering. Tayshia seemed a bit disappointed, but in the end was just grateful to get to know Underwood a little better.
Next up was Cassie’s date. The two seemed to be getting along brilliantly, sharing steamy kisses on idyllic Portugal streets, and goofing off in souvenir shops. The fun stuff finally gave way when Colton revealed that Cassie’s father had not given the stud his blessing. Colton was hopeful that the duo could move past a moment that clearly shook Cassie to her core, but matters got worse when Daddy Randplph himself showed up to persuade his daughter to cut things off with the former NFL player. The evening culminated in an agonizing stretch of Colton and Cassie going back and forth, and Colton inexplicably announcing that she’s the one he wants to end up with. Cassie eventually decided to dip, which led to the much-awaited fence-jumping. For a moment that everyone has been waiting for, it sure seemed anticlimactic.
As can be expected, fans on Twitter went absolutely wild tweeting reactions, gifs, and even some well-crafted memes in response. Here are some of our favorites.
