AceShowbiz - While many people are always anticipating a new season of "The Bachelor" and "The Bachelorette", Kelly Ripa is not one of them. The "Live with Kelly and Ryan" host revealed in the Tuesday, May 14 episode of her show that the ABC dating show "disgusts me."
Co-host Ryan Seacrest first told the audience that Hannah Brown, the star of current season of "The Bachelorette", was set to be visiting the show next week. Kelly made her displeasure known by saying, "You guys, you know how I feel about the show. It disgusts me," she said, per Us Weekly.
"I can't stand the idea of 25 exceptional women fighting over one ordinary fella, in my opinion," she said of "The Bachelor". "You know how I feel, ladies, we are too special to be arguing over a guy."
The audience erupted in applause, but that didn't stop the 48-year-old from jokingly calling out those who watch the show. "Having said that," she continued. "All of you women watch that gross, gross show."
Ryan then gave a recap of Hannah B.'s season of "The Bachelorette" which premiered on Monday, May 13. However, Kelly got noticeably less and less interested while Ryan described each of the 24-year-old Alabama native's suitors. "It's all creepy," said Kelly before adding that "The Bachelorette" was "just as creepy" as "The Bachelor".
In the premiere of her season, where Hannah B. met all of her 30 suitors for the first time, she presented her first impression rose to Luke. Eight of the suitors were sent home in the first night, with one of them being caught lying. Season 15 of "The Bachelorette" airs on Mondays at 8 P.M. on ABC.
