A special episode of The Bachelor aired on ABC on Monday. Titled Women Tell All, the episode featured Clayton Echard’s former suitresses, who were sent home throughout Season 26.
Women Tell All was hosted by Bachelor Nation alum Jesse Palmer, who looked visibly stressed out in most segments. Viewers felt that he couldn’t handle the ladies who were seen yelling at each other on top of their voices.
To note, Season 26 was Palmer’s first time as a host on the show. In the Women Tell All episode, he found it difficult to calm down the contestants and move on to the next topic.
Fans make fun of Jesse Palmer online
Throughout the latest episode, Palmer was seen trying his best to mellow down the rage the ladies had for some contestants. Things started to get ugly, especially when everyone started attacking Shanae Ankney.
Palmer then called her to the hot seat before the women got up from their seats. However, it looked like the host was failing to do his job, leading to online memes.
Fans took a dig at Palmer by pulling his leg on his tensed and shocked expressions that can be seen in the episode:
