Um. Do you remember that time on Bachelor Pad 3 when those six randoms showed up and were all “OH MY GOD I LOVE YOUR PICKLE, Ed Swiderski!”? Everyone was like “the smell of your weird is actually affecting my vocal chords. Scoot!” and promptly kicked the superfans right off the property. Well, what we’re saying is, those shamefully dismissed folk may soon be ALL OF US!
What the f are we talking about? Great question. San Diego’s crazy Comic Con started this weekend and it seems that Bachelor/ette producer Robert Mills may have been inspired by the convention in an intriguing way. “Should we consider doing a#BachelorCon,” Millsy tweeted on July 19.
Duh, Robert, duh. We have a few themes in mind for how this could play out. Besides the obvious need for craft tables where fans can make their own roses and Bachelor Nation hottie-shaped body pillows, we’re thinking panels on solutions to ugly-crying, liver toxicity from wine coolers, and a discussion on what exactly it means to be there for the “right reasons.”
Is this going to happen? No. Of course maybe. We hope so. Millsy is a notoriously sarcastic tweeter, but if there is money in this (spoiler alert: duh times three) and an obvious demand for some #BachelorNation love, then how could Bachelor alums and TPTB resist a chance to mingle with their minions? We’re in. Are you?
