‘The Bachelor’ brings out the misanthropic side of Jason Biggs

When criticized, Biggs took a page from the Shia LaBeouf playbook.

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:

This season’s contestants on #TheBachelor are a dentist’s wet dream.

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

I bet that girl who has 9 special needs family members lets them play with her big titties every now and then cuz what else right?

— Jason Biggs (@JasonBiggs) January 7, 2014

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

You can write the Ten Commandments on the front teeth of at least 8 of these chicks. #TheBachelor

— Jason Biggs (@JasonBiggs) January 7, 2014

There are prettier faces being interviewed in the Florida State locker room right now. #TheBachelor

— Jason Biggs (@JasonBiggs) January 7, 2014

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

Juan Pablo is having a really hard time hiding the fact that he thinks all these chicks are complete fucking disasters. #TheBachelor

— Jason Biggs (@JasonBiggs) January 7, 2014

Juan Pablo will hate-fuck all these chicks. They will all convince themselves that they love him. He will be single when the show is over.

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:

@JasonBiggs You are a hateful shallow person. Unfollow.

— Michael Ian Black (@michaelianblack) January 7, 2014

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.

@Snoballz: How low has @michaelianblack ‘s career sunk that he has to pick a twitter fight with @JasonBiggs to be relevant?” RIGHT??

— Jason Biggs (@JasonBiggs) January 7, 2014

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.
