The Bachelor Drinking Game

The Bachelor Season 26 is upon us, which means it’s time to make your bracket picks, lurk Clayton’s contestants (and Clayton!) on Instagram, and of course, prepare your livers for the uptick in wine consumption on Monday nights. While the entertainment of The Bachelor is always plentiful, the drinking game that we’ve put together below is bound to make your watching experience ALL the more enjoyable.

After asking #BachelorNation what rules they wanted to see, pulling together some Bachelor fanatics, and thinking long and hard about what cringe-worthy moments warrant a sip or two–we present this season’s The Bachelor Drinking Game.

Watch, chug, and enjoy season 26 of The Bachelor.

Disclaimer: We cannot be held responsible for drunken shenanigans or Tuesday morning hangovers that occur as a result of playing along. Enjoy.
