Most Bachelor Nation fans are over the virginity jokes surrounding Colton Underwood this season, but we have to admit this one is pretty funny.
ABC just released a new poster promoting this season of The Bachelor and it is almost identical to the movie poster for The 40-Year-Old Virgin.
“The new poster for this season of @bachelorabc looks really familiar. I don’t remember Steve having pecs,” Judd Apatow, who directed the comedy, wrote on Instagram.
Colton, who has been very open about his virginity, replied to Judd’s post.
“Hey @JuddApatow does this mean I have to wax my chest now?” he wrote.
The Bachelor shared the photo on their Instagram page, writing, “The wait is almost over…for #TheBachelor premiere, that is. Thanks to @juddapatow for debuting our other poster!”
While the virginity jokes are to be expected, it’s safe to say a number of Bachelor fans are tired of hearing about it.
Host Chris Harrison recently told Us Weekly, “What I’m really excited about, honestly, obviously, much has been made about his virginity. I’m excited for Colton, for me, for the show, for fans to get beyond the cocktail joke of it all,”
“I said this to Colton. I said, ‘It’s not funny.’ I said, ‘You’ve got to be tired of this.’ So it was compelling to me to dive into why, because things weren’t adding up, and I don’t think things added up for a lot of people.”
He continued, “So for him to open up and to talk about why, and to let all of us in this season, which he does, is fascinating.”
