    Last Night "The Bachelor" Gave Us "Champagne-Gate" And I Cannot Thank Chris Harrison Enough

    The bottle pop heard round the world.

    Last night was the best night of the week because The Bachelor aired the second episode of Pilot Pete's season.

    ABC

    Even though we're only two eps in, we're not short on the drama in THE SLIGHTEST. Last night was none other than "Champagne-Gate," the greatest scandal to rock our nation since Watergate*.

    ABC

    *OK, not really, but if you asked these girls, they would say so.

    Lemme break it down for you: Kelsey (left) brings a bottle of champagne — one that she's been saving for a special moment — onto the show to share with Pilot Pete. But before she can, Hannah Ann (right) and P.P. spot the bottle and share it with each other:

    ABC

    Kelsey is 50 shades of upset, but P.P. assures her it was a mix-up. BUT THAT'S NOT ALL, FOLKS!

    ABC

    Kelsey and P.P. happen to come across another ~strategically~ placed bottle of champ, and when Pete pops it open and asks Kelsey if she wants to use a cup or drink from the bottle, she says, "I'm not a classy bitch all the time." She then proceeds to drink from the bottle...

    ...and then this happens — aka the greatest meme of all time:

    Like, this is PURE comedy:

    Bach Nation has been having a field day with all the "drama" from Champagne-Gate and all the humor from its new favorite meme:
