was excited to find out what host promised to be life-changing news during episode Monday night, as the opening of the show teased Palmer stating, "It's a night full of surprises. This news is about to change your lives forever. Are you ready to hear what I'm about to say?"
It seemed like the announcement was going to be big, since Palmer also shared that this week's Rose Ceremony would not be shown due to the fact that there were just "way too many things to get to." Well, shame on us for actually falling for it.
One hour into the Men Tell All, Palmer asked the guys if they could use a glass of champagne. He then pulled out his phone to show an app created by Virgin Voyages, the cruise ship this season's cast traveled on during their journey to win the hearts of Bachelorettes and .
The app is for guests on Virgin Voyages sailings and, allegedly, with just one tap, guests can order and receive a glass of champagne. Palmer tapped his phone to display the function and out came servers with trays of champagne for everyone in the studio. That's when Palmer finally revealed the big announcement.
"Now, before we do a toast to this season, I do have some news. And, in fact, for all of those of you in this audience, this news is about to change your lives," said Palmer with the key words previously left out being: for all of those in this audience. "Well, get ready," Palmer continued. "Because our friends at Virgin Voyages are giving every single person in this audience... A free cruise!"
Viewers at home definitely felt clowned and severely disappointed after finding out the news that was "about to change their lives forever" actually had nothing to do with them. The reactions weren't all disappointment, though. Some people were actually lowkey enjoying Palmer's Oprah moment, and the studio audience broke out into cheers and applause as Palmer screamed, "You get a cruise! You get a cruise! You get a cruise! You get a cruise! Everybody gets a cruise!"
- It's a night full of surprises. This news is about to change your lives forever. Are you ready to hear what I'm about to say?
- During the Bachelorette, men tell all episode Monday night. Bachelor Nation was excited to find out what host Jesse Palmer promised to be life changing news. And we were made to believe it was going to be big. Well, shame on us.
- Well, get ready because our amazing friends at Virgin Voyages are giving every single person in this audience a free cruise.
- Yep. That big announcement was only for the people there in the studio audience. And it definitely wasn't life changing. Viewers at home were super annoyed by the major tease, and took to social media with comments like, so the life changing news is that someone else gets to go on vacation.
One sarcastic viewer tweeted, OMG. The audience getting a cruise, changed my life. Thank you Jesse. Thank you Bachelor franchise. This changed my life. But the reactions weren't all disappointment. There were some people who kind of enjoyed Jesse's Oprah moment.
- Yes. That is right.
