The return of ABC’s Bachelorette was a popular topic on Monday night’s edition of the network’s late-night series, Jimmy Kimmel Live. Airing shortly after Monday night’s Bachelorette season premiere, Kimmel offered up a spoof featuring one (very) young lady and 11 (very) young men: “The Baby Bachelorette.”
Much like The Bachelorette is a spinoff of The Bachelor, “The Baby Bachelorette” is a spinoff of “The Baby Bachelor,” a spoof Kimmel’s show ran in 2013 featuring Kimmel’s nephew, Wesley, who, as the host put it, “found love” and is “engaged to be married in the year 2033.”
“The Baby Bachelorette” follows four-year-old Bianca.
“I’m going to get married and have a pretty dress and be a princess,” Bianca declares. Dressed the part, she greets her 11 tiny suitors, all wearing small suits and ties, wearing a pink princess dress and a tiara.
One by one the boys run out from the limo, with their ages listed in months and professions ranging from “Gymboree trainer” to “juice mixologist” to “mess maker” to a 23-month-old “hedge fund manager” who seems more interested in the rocks in the driveway than Bianca. The grown-up contestants on this season of The Bachelorette also have some odd jobs, with an “erectile dysfunction specialist” and a “Bachelor superfan” in the mix.
On “The Baby Bachelorette,” the battle for the first-impression unicorn, with the toy horse replacing The Bachelor franchise’s rose, comes down to Manny, a 37-month-old “Lego architect” who seems to develop a quick rapport with Bianca, and bad boy “preschool dropout” Alex, a 39-month-old who shows up riding a motorcycle and wearing a leather jacket and helmet.
Watch the video below to see who gets the first unicorn and who breaks down in tears.
