Jimmy Kimmel Live spoofs The Bachelorette in baby spinoff


Jimmy Kimmel parodies The Bachelorette in a spin-off called The Baby Bachelorette, which finds 11 toddlers competing for the love of a 4-year-old girl.

Jimmy Kimmel helped usher in the newest season of The Bachelorette by creating his own version of the popular dating show in a recent episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live. The parody, titled, “The Baby Bachelorette,” features a group of toddlers vying for the affection of 4-year-old Bianca.

Just as The Bachelorette is a spinoff of The Bachelor, Kimmel’s version is inspired by “The Baby Bachelor,” a spoof that ran on his show in 2013, and featured his nephew, Wesley, “who found love and is engaged to be married in the year 2033,” according to the host.

Kimmel presented the first episode of the send-off, which follows Bianca – wearing a pink princess dress and silver tiara – as she greets her 11 young suitors, whose ages are listed in months and professions include “Gymboree personal trainer,” “mess maker” and “juice mixologist.”

“I think my husband is in that limo,” Bianca declares, before the tiny suit-wearing boys successively exit their limos to meet her. They include “super cute” train expert, Jackson, who admits that he “usually prefers blondes, but first time for everything,” and Dylan, who is dressed like Captain America. Others like band leader Cleto’s son, Cruz, fail to make an impression due to his attachment to his dad. “What’s up with that guy?” Bianca asks. There’s also a 23-month-old “hedge fund manager” who seems more interested in rocks in the driveway than Bianca, which prompts her to wonder “whether he’s too young to get married.”

The parody includes some of the common tropes found on The Bachelorette, such as the hopelessly romantic musician who’s “looking for someone to make [his] heart sing,” and the motorcycle-driving rebel, Alex – a preschool drop-out – who doesn’t play by the rules.

With a first impression toy unicorn at stake in lieu of a rose, some of the boys buckle under the pressure by breaking down in tears or throwing a tantrum. It all comes down to Manny, a polite “Lego architect,” and the overconfident Alex, who quickly steals Bianca away from him before declaring that he has no competition.

The spoof ends with a preview of the next edition of “The Baby Bachelorette,” that as Kimmel narrates, will feature the “most amazing, awesome, incredible, heart-wrenching, stunning, unbelievable, marvelous, shocking, and amazing unicorn ceremony in ‘Baby Bachelorette’ history.”

Jimmy Kimmel Live airs weeknights at 11:35 p.m., while The Bachelorette can be seen Mondays at 8 p.m. on ABC.
