Let’s Recast The Bachelorette Guys As Their Celebrity Doppelgängers

The Bachelorette season 9 cast 2013 with Desiree Hartsock
Remember celebrity doppelgänger week on Facebook? It was a revealing time, when we all  got to learn which blond, toned, tan celebrity each of our friends thought they most resembled. It was really illuminating. It wasn’t taken as seriously as it ought to have been, as far as I’m concerned, so I’m taking steps to make it a real thing in real life again.

But naturally I didn’t want to use myself as the subject. It’s pretty clear that I look like a cross between Megan Fox and Natalie Portman except not so terribly ugly, so we’ll have to find someone else to bear this heavy burden. And since The Bachelorette is airing part one of its two-part, four HOUR finale tonight, who better to set our sights on than the male contestants on that show? (Or at least the sixteen of them whom Desiree Hartsock kept around long enough for me to remember one single about them.

Unfortunately, they all look fairly similar, but I’m also not friends with any of them on Facebook, so they’ll never know what I think of them. So let’s hop to this, you guys — these fellas aren’t gonna doppelgang themselves, y’know? (Apologies for how gross that sounded.)

1. BEN - Sean Astin
If this swap were to take place, I’m imagining a lot of conversations like, “Okay, but you didn’t even talk to Frodo on Easter Sunday. So stop pretending in front of Des that you’re so obsessed with him.”

2. BRAD - A Ken Doll
I mean am I right or am I right? Brad looks like his stubble and his blush are literally painted on.

3. BRANDON - Sean William Scott
This is only the first of many blasts from your teen movie past. And do I understand that it’s a bit of a reach? Yes, I do. But they have similar mischievous smiles, so get over it.

4. BRIAN - Will Forte
GUYS I AM REALLY PROUD OF THIS ONE. I should tell you that my boyfriend is the one who came up with it, but he’s not here to insist on that, so I’m taking all the credit myself.

Brooks Johnny Depp(Photo: ABC, Joe Alvarez/WENN)

5. BROOKS - Johnny Depp
Johnny Depp is certainly more attractive than Brooks, but they still do look pretty similar to me. Right? Maybe? Just don’t tell Des what you decide, since she’s clearly already chosen him as the winner and I don’t want to interrupt her reverie.

6. BRYDEN - Shrek
Sorry not sorry. You decide to leave the show mid-some-other-guy’s-date, you accept the fact that somewhere down the line, your appearance may be compared to a great green CGI ogre. Them’s the breaks.

7. CHRIS - Bob Saget
This one’s pretty solid, friends. I’m not genealogical scientist, but I wouldn’t rule out these guys turning out to be related, down the line.

Dan Don Draper(Photo: ABC, WENN)

8. DAN - Don Draper
No, not Jon Hamm, I mean the actual Don Draper. With his slicked-back, immovable hair, square-forehead and straight, even teeth, Dan seems to have been born in the wrong decade. Although if he were swapped out with Don, they wouldn’t have a show, because Des would’ve chosen him on the first night.

Drew Cary Elwes(Photo: ABC, WENN)

9. DREW - Cary Elwes
Don’t you dare sit here and try to pretend you don’t know who that is. He’s the guy from Princess Bride and he actually looks A LOT like Drew, so shut up and fetch me that pitcher, farm boy.

James Deena(Photo: ABC, Alberto Reyes/WENN)

10. JAMES Deena Cortese
Again, if you’re gonna act like a total d-wad, don’t be surprised when I point out that you look strikingly similar to one of the girls on Jersey Shore. On the plus side, the other guys might like you more this way, because you’re a total blast in a glass.

Juan Pablo Bradley Cooper(Photo: ABC, Daniel Deme/WENN)

11. JUAN PABLO Bradley Cooper
Is anyone surprised, after all my effusing about Juan Pablo, that I think he looks like Bradley Cooper? Well you shouldn’t be. You shouldn’t be surprised.

12. KASEY Zac Efron
This is a bit of a stretch as well, okay? I admit it. I find it works best if you squint your eyes and imagine that they’re both part chinchilla. Then these two look much more similar.

Michael G Breckin Meyer(Photo: ABC, WENN)

13. MICHAEL G. - Breckin Meyer
This is your second blast from the past. This is not a drill. Remember Breckin, though? He had a wide, friendly smile and made blessedly few attempts to bring his law degree to everyday conversations in order to add drama…so I think this would be a welcome swap.

Mikey T Joe Manganiello(Photo: ABC, WENN)

14. MIKEY T. Joe Manganiello
Right? The facial hair is different and Joe is hotter, but the rest is all there, down to the super bro-y names.

Zack K Seth Meyers(Photo: ABC, HRC/WENN)

15. ZACK K. Seth Meyers
Zack has a hint of someone else in him, as well, that I can’t put my finger on, and I wouldn’t want him anywhere near the Weekend Update desk, but all in all a fairly successful doppelganging, wouldn’t you say?

Zak W Mike Situation(Photo: ABC, Apega/WENN)

16. ZAK W. - The Situation
And this one. This is my crowning glory. Just watch Zak’s behavior in one episode and tell me I’m not a complete genius. I dare you. Plus I got two Jersey Shore references in the same post, so I am really killing it today.

      • Alexis Rhiannon

        Oh I didn’t even think of her! That’s a good question, I’ll have to think of someone. Did you have anyone in mind?

      • CaramelGoddess0801

        Katie Holmes of course! When she was on the Bachelor I used to call her the Katie Holmes clone :)

      • Alexis Rhiannon

        Such a good call.

      • Alexis Rhiannon

        A little bit Katharine McPhee, too!
