Each and every Bachelor contestant is a beautiful, unique, special little snowflake floating gently from the heavens. We adore them all... but some of them dress funny! The Bachelor Season 16 premiere is this Monday, Jan. 2, and we must say we’re kind of appalled by some of the outfits some of the ladies chose to introduce themselves to their maybe-future-husband, Ben Flajnik.
Here are our five biggest fashion fails from the premiere (but we’re posting them with undying love!).
1. Amber T.’s Jungle Fever
2. Shawn Reynolds’s Unflattering Fit
Shawn seems like a sweetheart single mom with a big heart. But her two-toned Lauren Alaina hair and too tight/too shiny green dress do not flatter her many beautiful gifts.
3. Holly’s Hat Trick
It's The Real Housewives of Kentucky! At 34, Holly is slightly older than 28-year-old Ben, but we probably wouldn’t even have noticed until she showed up looking like the hottest MILF on your cul-de-sac. The hat is cute in theory — to help her be memorable —but just costumey in practice. Besides, getting close and flirty with Ben could be a challenge if he has to fight that thing on her head.
4. Samantha Levey’s Sash-ay
In case you didn’t notice, Samantha is Miss Pacific Palisades (move over Erika Uhlig). She shows up wearing her sash, and unless she has a locker somewhere in the mansion, she’s going to have to wear it all night. Given how many stereotypes already exist about Pageant Girls, Samantha’s going to have to prove extra hard she’s got brains under that blonde.
5. Nicki Sterling’s Un-mellow Yellow
Nicki is a beautiful woman, but this busy yellow dress is swallowing her alive. Even yellow-loving Ali Fedotowsky would probably avoid this one. Is it just us, or does the fabric look like it might’ve been the drapes at a hippie commune in a past life?
