Keke Palmer & JoJo Just Skewered ‘Bachelorette’ and Millennials at Once
For as many times as the Bachelor franchise has been spoofed in pop culture over the years, it really never gets old!
Proof of that is this week’s latest entry, The Millennial Bachelorette — Funny or Die’s take on the ABC reality series, just in time for JoJo Fletcher’s Season 12 premiere.
The parody not only takes on the dating show itself and hits it out of the park, but it also does an A-plus job of demolishing the technology-obsessed twenty-somethings of today, via Keke Palmer’s bachelorette Micole (real name) on her journey to find her “one, true, non-exclusive soulmate.”
As she explains, “I’m really confident the guy who I’ll eventually go grab drinks with once work stuff clears up is in here. Probably.”
Then, in a great move, she looks around the room of all white men and quips, “Where are all the black guys?” Wonder what that could be alluding to?
We then get to watch a bunch of kale-eating, WiFi-dependent brand ambassadors, YouTube personalities, and “Apple geniuses” duke it out for her rose — or rather a text saying they get a rose, that is.
In another millennial move, Micole ends up falling for the gay contestant, and hilarity ensues.
All that being said, it’s singer JoJo’s cameo — a reference to the current Bachelorette lead — at the end that really makes the video kill.
Check out the video above to find out what happens, and tune in to see the real Bachelorette Mondays at 8 p.m. ET on ABC!
