Let me begin this lovefest post by saying that I don’t watch The Bachelor. I’m more of a TLC reality show kind of girl. Why watch someone try to meet one wife, when you can watch a guy with three? But I still laughed out loud when watching the first three episodes of the new Burning Love web series. So let it be known that you don’t have to be a Bachelor fan to love Burning Love.
The new show features hilarious dialogue as well as big stars like Ken Marino, Ben Stiller, Adam Scott, Kristen Bell, Ken Jeong, Malin Akerman, Michael Ian Black and Jennifer Aniston. Yes, Jennifer Aniston shows up in a hilarious cameo that makes me really like her. I always forget that she-with-the-eternally-empty-womb can actually be really funny.
Also, I love Michael Ian Black. If you’re not following him on Twitter, then I don’t even know why you’re using it.
While I don’t want to ruin the first few episodes for you, I will say it involves a blind woman, a half-naked woman, a Christian, an unethical therapist and a pregnant contestant. Oh and the bachelor Mark Orlando (Ken Marino) is a fireman who poses topless. What more could you possibly want in life?
Watch the first three episodes right here and let me know your favorite line in the comments. Spoiler alert: it will be hard to pick!
