Bachelor Nation Reacts to Awkward Episode of ‘The Bachelorette’

Between some intense first dates and strip dodgeball, it was a weird night on ‘The Bachelorette.’ 

The second week of Clare Crawley’s season of The Bachelorette was a weird one: full of guy drama, first dates turned therapy sessions and strip dodgeball (yes, you read that right).

As always, Bachelor Twitter was alive and well with the most hilarious reactions. Here are some of the best:

Tammy Ly

Tammy Ly nailed the description of the ~physical touch~ group date.

Nick Viall

And Nick Viall had the best response for the gift-giving portion of the date.

“I feel like dog perfume is the type of gift you give because you remembered your girlfriend mentioning it when you were FaceTiming during quarantine,” he tweeted.

The Betchelor

Whoever runs The Betchelor podcast’s Twitter gets bonus points for this one.

Diggy Moreland

Diggy Moreland explained exactly why you don’t call a woman crazy.

“Josef called her crazy, and still got a pulse,” he wrote. “I remember I called my mom crazy once. I spent the night outside. I was 11. It was February in Chicago.”

Dylan Barbour

Dylan Barbour is only here for the dogs and we have no choice but to stan.

“Petition to start this season over with puppies for 2 hours every Tuesday,” he tweeted. We’re in!

Tyler Cameron

Tyler Cameron called Clare out for her second group date.

“Clare is my last pick for dodgeball,” he tweeted.

Lauren Zima

Everyone’s favorite Bachelor expert Lauren Zima paired our two favorite things with a great gif reaction.

“Pouring one out for ‘acts of service,’ which did not get its due tonight,” she tweeted with a gif of Rachel from Friends.

And she totally gave credit where credit is due for the dodgeball date.

“An Emmy for whoever did the censor boxes,” she said.

Plus one more because homegirl was on FIRE tonight:

“These throw pillows are really stepping up to the plate. They didn’t expect to work this hard. Thought they were just aesthetic,” she wrote.

Chris Harrison

But of course, Chris Harrison takes the cake.

“Extremely awkward to watch strip dodgeball with your Mom. Thanks a lot @chrisbharrison,” one fan tweeted at him.

“How do you think it was for me Amanda?” he replied.

Valid point, Chris!
