The Bachelor Spoilers: Greetings, Jillian and Ed!

at . Comments

On the January 4 premiere of The Bachelor, viewers are in for a surprise.

In a shocking development, Jake Pavelka struggles over which of the women to keep around for another week. Just kidding. That happens every episode.

But this does not: as one of the show's only successful couples (for now), Jillian Harris and Ed Swiderski show up to offer Jake advice. To the contestants' credit, they act believably surprised. It's almost as if they forgot this storyline was outlined in the week's script.

Check out the season premiere clip below:

The Bachelor Quotes

I would definitely prefer not to be the first Bachelor rejected at the end of all of this.


This is not another season of The Bachelorette. Or Paradise. This is actually The Bachelor. I know, I’m as surprised as you are.
