‘Saturday Night Live’ Absolutely Roasts ‘Bachelor’ Peter Weber, Victoria F., and Other Contestants
The ‘Saturday Night Live’ ‘Bachelor’ parody featuring JJ Watt
In the most recent episode, guest JJ Watt plays a pilot named Pat from Westlake Village, California.
“He’s a big boy pilot with 30 sobbing Hannahs to choose from. Tune in to watch him deep-kiss the white girls and high-five the black girls this season on Pilot Hunk,” the sketch begins.
Pat speaks to several women all named Hannah (played by Cecily Strong, Heidi Gardner, Aidy Bryant, Kate McKinnon, Melissa Villaseñor, Ego Nwodim, and Chloe Fineman) about themselves and how they’re doing so far competing for his heart.
“Do I detect an accent?” he asks Strong’s Hannah. “Yeah, I’m drunk,” she replies.
Another Hannah tells Pat she’s “20/30 years old” and “had so much fun on the lube taste test.” Also, that she’s “a lawyer by the way.”
Another Hannah tells Pat she’s “brutally fragile at home so here it’s absolutely the wheels are coming off.” (Ring any bells?)
Kate McKinnon’s character comes up to Pat while her “eyes are peeing.” At this point, we can tell her Bachelor contestant is based on Victoria Fuller.
“Being here is really hard for me because I’m like really shy. I was blushing so hard at the thong fashion show, I can’t believe I won,” she said.
Bachelor fans will remember how uncomfortable Victoria F. was at the fashion show group date. While she didn’t win, she did get second place after sporting some lingerie.
McKinnon’s character also brought up the Chase Rice drama, because how could that be left out?
“I loved dancing to country singer Chance Beef with you today, but I have to tell you something. Um, he and I dated. Are you mad? That’s not all. I’ve also dated most of the camera men. Are you mad? I’m dating a lot of the girls in the house, too,” she said.
Especially after the Victoria F./Chase Rice incident, Bachelor fans have been talking about how “evil” the show’s producers have been this season. SNL touched on that, too.
“I’m having a really hard time because the producers, they confiscated my vitamins and they gave me a knife,” said Bryant’s character.
The fan reaction
One fan appreciated that SNL called out how young the current cast of The Bachelor is.
“I love that SNL came for The Bachelor mostly having 22-25 year old women on. I can’t believe when I was younger I thought that it would be normal for THAT MANY people so young to be looking for their future husband,” they tweeted.
Mostly, though, Bachelor fans seem to largely agree that SNL‘s parody is only slightly more ridiculous than the show actually is.
“Guys, I’m crying it’s very accurate,” tweeted one fan.
“It’s scary accurate And I LOVE THAT,” wrote one fan on YouTube.
