Jimmy Kimmel crashes ‘The Bachelor,’ creates bizarre dates for Chris Soules.

Kimmel appeared on Monday night’s episode of the ABC dating competition to help the newest Bachelor Chris Soules find love — although he mostly found himself in awkward situations.

It was a clash of ABC shows Monday night when Jimmy Kimmel took a hiatus from his hosting duties at “Jimmy Kimmel Live” to be a cohost of “The Bachelor” with regular host Chris Harrison. Instead of helicopter rides or fancy dinners, Kimmel arranged for 33-year-old farmer and his date Kaitlyn, 29, to go to an “exclusive club”— Costco. In your few weeks as a contestant vying to snare the heart of the ‘Bachelor’ on the ABC win-a-spouse show, you’ve managed to establish your posterior as one of the most famous in prime-time TV. Jimmy told the women that they say “amazing” too much during the show and presented them with an “Amazing Jar” that they had to put a dollar in any time they said the word. Jimmy announces to the “sister-wives” that he is here to help Chris with some tough decisions, a task that will require “making love to each one of you.” Cue nervous laughter Jimmy arrives equipped with his “amazing” jar.

Kimmel joined the couple for their date that night and brought up not-so-polite dinner conversation by explain to Soules he needed to sleep with every woman on the show. Throughout the show, he pops up, planning dates, acting as a third wheel on a one-on-one with Bachelor Chris and Kaitlyn, which is where we began our journey. Much of the screen time for Jillian Anderson, the Washington local — we can call her that, since she’s a former Redskins ambassador and producer at Washington’s Fox News Bureau — has involved a black bar stretched across her rear. Kimmel didn’t stop with the individual date but arranged the group date which included Kelsey, Britt, Jillian, Becca, Tracy, Amber, Nikki, Mackenzie, Ashley S., Juelia, Samantha and Carly.

Whether she’s running in a bikini or hopping a fence into a pig sty (really, that happened — the bachelor in question is a farmer, so this impresses him or something) or working out, Anderson has stood out from the pack… mostly because of that post-production censoring of her nether regions. At the end of the show, maybe we’ll buy this house and all live here together.” (Throughout the episode there was a “ding” sound whenever someone used the word. OK, putting that behind us (ahem) here’s where we are: on Monday night’s episode, Anderson tried a bold gambit by showing up in bachelor’s Chris Soules’ hot tub and staying for an extended hangout (awkward!), which inspired some jealousy among her co-contestants. As Chris grilled steaks at his place that night, Jimmy grilled Kaitlyn about her dating history, asking her if she had ever dated a farmer and if she would be angry about Chris potentially sleeping with multiple women during fantasy suite week. The trio had dinner together and Chris gave Kaitlyn a rose — in front of Jimmy, who wouldn’t stop teasing them and even climbed into the hot tub with them.

Jimmy also planned the week’s group date, sending the women to a farming competition to see how well they would adapt to Chris’ farmer life in Iowa. The fact of the matter is God named him The Bachelor, and his divine mission is to have a lot of sex.” Kimmel’s planned group date is a race that requires the girls to milk a goat, drink the milk, find a chicken’s egg and wrestle a pig.

However, one woman, Becca, told Chris she didn’t feel comfortable kissing him yet because “it wasn’t normal” and wanted to wait until she was ready. Another woman, Ashley, gave Jillian just a couple of minutes to be alone with Chris, and became angry when Jillian didn’t want to give up her time so soon.

As third wheel, Jimmy feels like his role is to ask the hard questions: namely, will Kaitlyn be mad if she finds out Chris made “sweet, sweet, sweet love” to three other women in the Fantasy Suite?” “You can’t buy a car without test driving it,” she quips, instantly endearing her to Jimmy. “Come on now,” he says to Chris, “it’s not going to get any better than this.” Jimmy likes this pair so much he suggests a threesome. #kiddingnotkidding At the date’s conclusion, Chris, with much sputtering, manages to award the rose to Kaitlyn. Jimmy makes one final dig at Chris’s terrible speaking skills (“Are there people on the farm or just animals?”) and then gives the couple a few minutes of alone time. In the second farm-themed group date of the season, a dozen ladies (Britt, Jillian, Becca, Tracey, Mackenzie, Kelsey, Amber Juelia, Ashley S., Samantha, Nikki, and Carly) are forced to cheerfully humiliate themselves in an Iowa-friendly relay race. The best part was when sweet Mackenzie, who is only 21 and received the first kiss from Chris in Week 2, approached him and asked why he’s kissing so many of the girls. Fun fact: her brother-in-law is Jacob Hester, who played running back at LSU and was a key piece for the Tigers when they won the 2007 national championship.

As their conversation deepens, Chris begins listing the qualities he likes in a woman: positive, fun, spontaneous… Whitney absorbs this information as if she’s studying for the SATs. We assumed the producers set this up, but Chris looks so awkward and terrified that we almost believe this an impromptu suggestion from eager-to-please Whitney. It’s all fun and games until Juelia pulls Chris aside and shares, in harrowing detail, what we learned last episode — her husband committed suicide shortly after their wedding. As the eventful day draws to a close, roses go to Jade, Samantha, Juelia, Mackenzie, Kelsey, Britt, Megan, Carly, Ashley S., Nikki, Jillian, and Ashley I.
