Hands down, the biggest surprise of last night’s premiere of The Bachelorette was party crasher Chris Bukowski showing up to try and compete for Andi Dorfman’s favor. Y’all remember Chris, right? Emily Maynard rejected him after Hometown Dates on Season 8 of The Bachelorette, and he was nooooooooot pleased. So it’s a little rough that Em took to her blog to outright laugh at the Virginian for showing up on last night’s premiere. What did Chris’s former love interest have to say about his party crashing? Read on.
“And of course how could I not mention Chris Bukowski showing up out of nowhere, apparently using his ‘Bachelorette-Radar’ to sense there was a new girl at the mansion?” writes the southern belle. Love the idea of Bachelorette-Radar, Em, like Spidey sense that tingles when single babes are near.
The engaged Emily goes on to rip Chris’s surprise show-up with, “Call me crazy, but I think the more reasonable, definitely less embarrassing decision would’ve been to call one of your mutual friends and get her phone number.” Hmmmm, she’s got a point. But then, as she also notes, we would have missed out on the awesomeness of the security guard who took Chris’s roses and admitted no one had ever brought him flowers before. Awwwww. We’re so glad the bar owner was able to rectify that situation.
Em does end her teasing of Chris on a positive note, writing “here’s hoping Chris shows up on every season, gives us great entertainment, and eventually finds the love of his life!” We can totally get behind that idea. Maybe Mr. Blue Eyes will find love this summer on Bachelor in Paradise? We can only dream.
