Watching reality shows like The Bachelor should be a shared experience. It's a million times more fun if you have a group of friends to join you in playfully poking fun at the silly moments. Or you should at least have fellow Twitter users to laugh along with. Fortunately there's one reality show that has the best kind of fellow viewers: Hollywood A-Listers. That's right, there are a surprising number of celebrities who watch The Bachelor. Just know that you're not alone!
Not only do all the former stars of the show watch and live-tweet, but, over the years, several members of Hollywood's elite have come forward as part of Bachelor Nation. They love to tweet about the show and laugh right alongside you. It's basically like you're sharing a glass of wine with Anna Kendrick or Sarah Hyland while watching the rose ceremonies unfold.
I'm a firm believer in not being ashamed of liking any and every reality television show, and these 18 celebrities are of the same mentality. So when you tune in for the next episode of The Bachelor, know that you're in good company.
The star is an avid live-tweeter of the show, and honestly makes your own viewing that much better because she has the best thoughts on things.
Plus she's crushing hard on this season's ladies Ashley S. and Kaitlyn. She's basically me. But like, more famous, and way funnier.
The reality TV matriarch once admitted her love for another reality show. On Season 1 of Keeping Up With the Kardashians, Jenner lamented, "I just wanted to lay in bed and watch The Bachelor." Same, Kris. Same. It was even rumored that she was dating former Bachelor Ben Flajnik after he and Courtney Robertson broke up.
The actress and her fiancé started watching the show just for fun and got super addicted. "I was mesmerized by how these girls, they meet this guy, they have three dates together or something, and they're weeping as though they've just lost the love of their life. I don't understand that," she said.
Not a lot of men would proclaim their love for The Bachelor, but Garfield doesn't care about that kind of thing. "It’s the greatest show on TV," he once said unapologetically.
The Glee actress loves the show so much that when she appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live! in January, she spent most of the show quizzing Kimmel on his episode hosting The Bachelor. "I'm so obsessed it's ridiculously unhealthy," she admitted.
Host Chris Harrison says that when he once met J. Law at the Oscars, the first thing she said was how much she loved the show. “Jennifer Lawrence was awesome... I was really looking forward to meeting her. And then she walks up and she tells me how much she loves [the show]. I’m like, ‘You like The Bachelor?’ and she was like, ‘Duh, I’m a girl.'”
The singer isn't ashamed of his Bachelor obsession. "I don't even feel like it's my fault for liking it. It's not a guilty pleasure. It's designed to be a pleasure," he said. Amen.
The show may have found its biggest fan in Dunst. "My girlfriends got me a T-shirt that says ‘Most. Exciting. Rose Ceremony. Ever,'" the actress said to Entertainment Weekly, referencing Chris Harrison's familiar phrase. She loves the show for the same reason most of us do: the drama. "The girls go so crazy over this dude they don't know, and they're so in love with him and dying for these roses," Dunst told Jimmy Fallon. "Like, you haven't even met the guy for five minutes and you're already ready to rip this girl's hair out!"
The Orange is the New Black star is well-known for his dedicated Bachelor commentary on Twitter.
And for Biggs, the show is important to his marriage. "I happen to think [my obsession is] healthy! It’s a good bonding thing for me and my wife," he told the New York Post.
Jennifer Love Hewitt
She's such a fan of the show than when Ben Flajnik got rejected by Ashley Hebert, Jennifer Love Hewitt expressed her interest in him, offering to fly to Sonoma where he lived.
They did go on a date, although ultimately it didn't work out for the pair.
He's just as obsessed as the rest of us.
During Juan Pablo's season she took to Twitter to make a number of "Juan" puns.
She knows a thing or two about reality shows, and she gives The Bachelor her stamp of approval.
The Girls star is also a Bachelor fan. In fact, the show even sent her roses on Valentine's Day because she's always talking about it!
The young actress takes her Bachelor viewing time seriously. Jamie King found that out the hard way.
Kaley Cuoco & Haylie Duff
The actresses are real life BFFs with former Bachelorette Ali Fedotowsky, and they often host viewing parties together.
Justin Bieber's mother loves the show so much that she wants to go on it.
Now that would be the most dramatic season ever.
