There are certain habits that all of the Bachelorette guys seem to practice over the course of the season. For example, they all take their shirts off at any opportunity to show off their amazing abs, often without any prompting or logic. And most of them bust out an acoustic guitar at some point, too. However, Chris Harrison is revealing one more weird thing that the guys do in the mansion — and you’ll never guess what it is!

Chris tells the New York Times that the show’s producers ask the cast members what they want to eat during their time in the house, and the men seem to all have one answer: Egg whites. So, so many egg whites. Seriously, what’s up with that?

“They can have whatever they want [to eat or drink],” Chris says. “With the guys, we go through 9,000 eggs in a season, because apparently the modern-day guy doesn’t have a hair on his body and eats 40 egg whites a meal.” And as for why he himself wouldn’t make a great Bachelor, Chris explains: “I don’t eat 50,000 egg whites.” He’s really driving home the whole egg whites thing, isn’t he?

This is totally weird to us, since we all know that egg whites are… not that great. So we find it bizarre that every Bachelorette stud appears to be addicted to them. Then again, they all tend to have flawless bodies, so maybe they’re on to something there.

And now, we find ourselves curious as to what the Bachelor ladies tend to eat, since they don’t seem to be all about egg whites. While Season 18’s Kat Hurd would likely say “guacamole” (you had to be there, apparently?), we’re wondering if white wine spritzers count as part of the food pyramid in other people’s lives, too...

Are you surprised that the Bachelorette guys go through so many egg whites?
