New seasons of The Bachelor are always fraught with tension for viewers at home: Did you pick the right contestant to win it all in your Bachelor fantasy league? Will Juan Pablo pull a Ben and pick the wrong girl? Who brought the $3 wine to the viewing party? But it seems full Bach-mania affected no one more than pie-sex guru Jason Biggs, who felt compelled to share his thoughts on the contestants.

First he went after looks:

When that wasn’t enough, a family history of mental disabilities became fair game:

Then a quick swing back through dental standards and general appearance:

He wondered if Bachelor Juan Pablo Galavis enjoyed the same type of casual misogyny:

Though some followers were glad Biggs was once again tweeting about The Bachelor—he weighed in last February, too—most were noticeably incensed.

Comedian Michael Ian Black tweeted out, possibly jokingly, to his million-plus followers:

In retaliation, Biggs took a page from the Shia LaBeouf playbook and simply retweeted Black’s , along with a follow-up about the state of Black’s career.

Biggs is no stranger to internet controversy. Earlier this summer he penned what could be the least-self-aware essay of all time, lamenting how anxiety-ridden it is to be famous—not because he’s constantly being recognized, but because he suffers the crippling pressure that he might be recognized at all. Pretty serious stuff.
