“The Bachelor: The Women Tell All” television special may have been fairly predictable, however, Ellen Degeneres’ version of the show is turning out to be quite entertaining.
On her Wednesday show,the comedian and talk show host spoofed the reality show's Q&A with rejected contestants by inserting herself into the equation as a “Bachelor” hopeful who may have had ulterior motives.
“I really did come here to make friends,” jokes DeGeneres, playing off the other women all claiming the opposite. “I was not here for Ben. I mean, let’s face it, I was here for the girls.”
DeGeneres goes on to say her wife, Portia de Rossi, thought she was appearing on the “Amazing Race” series, and will likely be upset to find out she was on a dating show.
She also poked fun at the fact that the show is less about finding romance and more about catty drama between the women.
“What did I ever do to you for you to call me a stripper?” Competitor Blakeley Shea asks on the original airing.
In her parody, DeGeneres responds, “I did not call you a stripper. ... I said, ‘Could you get me a Swiffer?’…The mansion was so filthy dirty…I said, Swiffer please.”
Fans and critics enjoyed the parody. “This particular "Bachelor" episode is about 100 times better with her in it,” wrote Emma Gray in a review for The Huffington Post.
