"It's a very big word." The Bachelor contestants don't know what an astrophysicist is.


Do you know what an astrophysicist is?

I mean the specifics are a bit over our heads, but the basic gist is kinda in the title no? Astronomy + physics?

Welllll, turns out there’s a whole bunch of women on Matt Agnew’s season of The Bachelor who can’t even get that far.

“It sounds like a fake job” one of the girls says in a Channel Ten teaser promo.

“I’m a gemini,” a woman called Abbie replies when told what the bachelor does.

Holy s*** on a stick, Abbie.

Poor Abbie has mixed up astrology and astronomy and we just can’t.


Here’s Abbie in action. Post continues after video.

It gets worse.

Some of the women can’t even say astrophysicist.

“It’s a very big word,” one woman says as the other tries to get all the s’s in the right order.

An astro what?

"Am I supposed to know what it is?" another asks the producers offscreen.

Ladies pls.

For those confused about the specifics, astrophysics is the branch of astronomy concerned with the physical nature of stars and other bits and pieces in space.

It applies the laws of physics and chemistry to explain the birth life and death of everything that exists up there.

We actually cannot contain our excitement for this season of The Bachelor.

Osher, hit play already please.
