Bachelor Nation on Bachelorette Week 2: Misses Eric, Cringes for Craig
Given the magical nature of last night’s episode of The Bachelorette — and by magical we mean Magic Mike strippery — the reaction on Twitter was pretty tame. Our favorite Bachelor Nation commentators didn’t use the terms bootie shakin’, banana hammock, or full monty even once, which is a bit of a head scratcher. We find it downright weird that the rest of the world apparently isn’t as obsessed with man thunder as we are. But whatevs.
Instead, the social media fallout from Andi Dorfman’s second week as reigning Bachelorette fell into two categories: deceased contestant Eric Hill will be missed and who the *@$% gave Craig Muhlbauer keys to the liquor cabinet?
Eric nabbed the first one-on-one date of the season, and his positive attitude, globe trotting experiences, and gentlemanly manner had everyone, including Andi, swooning. Bachelor Nation reacted with understandable sadness to this episode that featured him, with many ending their tweets with a link to the #livelikeeric foundation.
But Eric’s light was overshadowed by party animal Craig’s dark tumble to the bottom of the bottle, which led to a fully clothed dip into the pool. Andi was not impressed, and neither was Twitter, shaming the Cheshire Cat in 140 characters. We’ve rounded up the best comments from Twitter nation below. Enjoy!
