ABC’s the Bachelor is back for its 23rd season and the memes that came out of the season premiere were dank, to say the least.
This season, Bachelor Colton Underwood is looking for love. Underwood has been outspoken about being a virgin, which was a hot topic during the three-hour premiere.
Throughout the episode, thirty women attempted to upstage each other and stand out in the fight for Underwood’s heart. The gags were arguably some of the most outrageous and absurd we’ve seen on the show. One woman faked an Australian accent, another dressed like a sloth, one arrived in a Cinderella carriage, and one woman brought her dog to meet her potential fiancé.
Fans and ‘Bachelor’ haters alike took to Twitter to dunk on the show.
“We have a sloth, a dog, a cop car, a Cinderella carriage, two women in the same dress, two pageant foes, a fake Australian, and countless lesser gimmicks, and they spent an hour making us look at random people cheering?!” one person tweeted.

People had a lot to say about the woman dressed as a sloth. Most were totally here for her look.
“You know how to NOT wear the same dress?” one person tweeted with a photo of the woman in her sloth look.
“The dedication to the sloth character is the most commitment we’ve seen on the show,” someone else joked.

There were also several jokes about the fact that Underwood is a virgin. “He was a virgin. She was a furry. Can I make it any more obvious?” one person wrote with a picture of the Bachelor with the sloth.
A meme on Instagram said, “a virgin will be sacrificed” over the ABC picture of the cast.
Others poked fun at the woman who totally faked an accent.
Lucy, the Pomeranian, was a fan favorite. Some even said she should be the next Bachelorette.
And this is only the beginning. It should only get better from here.
