Helen of Troy may have the face that launched a thousand ships, but The Bachelor's Mykenna Dorn has the tongue that launched a thousand memes. Since Peter's season premiered in January, the 22-year-old fashion blogger has been serving more face to viewers than she has to the Bachelor himself. And while that may not be enough to land her Peter's final rose, it is enough to turn her into a series of GIFs, earn hundreds of tweets, and inspire an entire Reddit thread dedicated solely to her wild facial expressions.
Before you start to feel bad, Mykenna is very in on the joke. Ahead of the show's Feb. 3 episode, she posted four of her best ~lewks ~ to her Instagram stories, writing "Who's ready for my cringy [sic] facial expressions?" And after Shakira's tongue also went viral during the 2020 Super Bowl, Mykenna joked on her Instagram Story, "When you realize you have more in common with Shakira than just sharing the same birthday," alongside a string of tongue-sticking-out emojis. If going on a reality TV show with an overactive tongue means Mykenna got to exist in the same sentence as Shakira, honestly, who needs Peter.
We salute you, Mykenna. As tribute, here are eight GIFs to use in your Bachelor group chat.
