'The Bachelor' Season 24: Kelsey Weier and Hannah Ann create #ChampagneGate and fans love every moment of it
This week on the 'The Bachelor', something that has been dubbed as ChampagneGate has come into existence.
What a Monday it's been in Bachelor Nation! It's just the second episode and the drama is already hitting the roof. This week on the 'The Bachelor', something that has been dubbed as ChampagneGate has come into existence.
After their date went south in the last episode thanks to Peter Weber's ex Hannah Brown showing up, Kelsey from Des Moines decided to woo Peter with a bottle of champagne from her hometown. She sets up a cute spot near the stairs in the Bachelor mansion to surprise Pete when the two spend time together. However, what she doesn't anticipate is a mix-up.
Hannah Ann goes to spend time with Peter at the same spot that Kelsey had set up the bottle and with just one pop, sends Kelsey into a frenzy, understandably. As it turns out, there was another bottle of champagne somewhere in the mansion for Peter and Hannah Ann but she went and conveniently popped the one that belonged to Kelsey.
As one can imagine, a lot of name-calling ensued along with tears, to the point that even Peter couldn't get through to them. Then, when Kelsey calmed down relatively, Peter decided to offer her his champagne. Now, as luck would have it, Kelsey's face ended up getting covered in champagne after she tried to drink it from the bottle - right after she says "I’m not a classy bitch all the time"
Although it is understandable why Kelsey would be upset, some girls thought she handled it terribly. She calls Hannah Ann a "snake" and a "fake" woman while claiming she is "real". Although sad for Kelsey, fans seemed to dig the drama.
"#Champagnegate looks exactly as exciting as I imagined," said a fan while another added, "I’ve never before seen karma of being a cray crazy so clearly executed." A third one said, "Kelsey’s champagne facial on @BachelorABC is literally the BEST moment in Bachelor history! You do not recover from that!"
All the emotional upheaval has also taken Kelsey from being a fan favorite to "unbearable". "Not sure I can take another week of Kelsey. But I'm sure they will set up #ChampagneGate for an elimination 2-on-1 date with Hannah Ann," said a Twitter user while another said, "Kelsey deserved the champagne in her face after her reaction to Hannah Ann opening it"
