There's nothing remotely real about reality shows, and that goes double for stunt-romance series like The Bachelor: The strained small talk, the pathetic micro-dates, and the ulterior motives are constant reminders of absolute artifice.
But they also prove fodder for some surprising jokes in SNL's take on the genre, aptly titled Beard Hunk. Watch as a half-dozen unfortunately ombré women (including host Felicity Jones) compete for one handsome doofus, revealing their worst qualities for no reason and asking "Can I steal him for a sec?" whenever they interrupt another woman's attempt to make a semi-favorable impression. The cycle becomes so familiar you'll wonder if you're not watching the real thing.
