Editing photos is hard, but there are a ton of talented people out there ready and willing to help.
Too bad none of them got their hands on “The Bachelor’s” recent round of promo photos.
You see, whoever edited them must have done so with Microsoft Paint because this job is just unacceptable.
But, more than that, it is comical and hence why we’re talking about them today.
For those of you who might not know what “The Bachelor” is, it is a television show where a bunch of single women compete to end up with some guy. It’s not the most complicated concept and it often results in the kinds of reality tv drama you would expect with such a vehicle.
Even with all of that carousing and polyamorous love, it seems like the people behind it are still hesitant to release pictures of the ladies in their bikinis. To avoid “offending” someone, I guess, the edited photos draped color blocks over the females in the photos in what is not only comical looking but also slightly absurd. The conflicting social rules at work here are just absolutely confounding, and this isn’t lost on the Internet commentariat.
@EmilyMomentX on Twitter commented:
“Was i the only one who noticed that they painted thicker bikini bottoms on the girls? I’m ROLLING 🤣 #TheBachelor”
“What is going on with this Microsoft Paint editing on these bikini bottoms? 😂 #TheBachelor”
And @Love_gray16 tweeted:
“Cracks me up how it’s ok to show the bachelor make out with multiple women in one night, but better photoshop full bikini bottoms on their butts. 😂 #TheBachelor”
