Saturday Night Live’s Unaired ‘Bachelorette’ Skit Shows ABC What Not to Do (VIDEO)


Though it didn’t air last week, Saturday Night Live is showing all the ways ABC could royally screw up this season of The Bachelorette.

In a sketch that was cut for time during Chris Pine’s episode on May 6, Sasheer Zamata stars as the first-ever black Bachelorette, Rachel Lindsay.

ABC announced the Dallas-based attorney as their lead back in March to overwhelmingly positive reviews, but let’s be honest, The Bachelor doesn’t have a great track record when it comes to diversity.


"One charming and accomplished lawyer, and 25 hot dummies. After five years of extensive meetings and focus groups, we are going for it,” the narrator says in the clip.

Things get even worse when the guys start to exit the limo and meet Rachel for the first time.


The Star Trek actor tries his hand at connecting with Rachel multiple times throughout the clip, but he’s racist and misogynistic, so we know that’s not going to work!

“I know I got off on the wrong foot back there, I’m just nervous. Will you give me another shot?” he asks, to which Rachel agrees.


“Rachel, I think you’re special, which is why I have to tell you, I have said the word [N word], but only when I sing along to rap music,” he continues.

“Now are they raps I write myself? Yes. Do I feel cool when I say it? Absolutely.”


Yep, next!

When he comes back for round three, it just keeps getting worse — if that’s even possible!

"Hey, soul sister. You know, we both have something in common. We are both systematically oppressed. White males are the new minority…” he says.


While the sketch is certainly not what we expect from this season of The Bachelorette, let it serve as a reminder to Bachelor Nation!

The Bachelorette premieres Monday, May 22 at 9 p.m. ET on ABC.
