“The Bachelor” for Babysitters Would Be Even More Drama-Filled Than the Original
(YouTube / What’s Up Moms)
Ask any mom and sheâ€™ll tell you how hard it is to find a babysitter. Looking for â€œthe one,â€ with the right mix of personality, availability, and affordability, can often be just as fraught with drama as finding a spouse. YouTubeâ€™s Whatâ€™s Up MomsÂ know this, and created a hilarious parody of â€œThe Bachelor,â€ called, â€œThe Babysitter.â€
The spoof nailsÂ all the typical â€œBachelorâ€ staples, but with a childcare-friendly twist. It follows Brooke, a mom of two boys who is â€œso excited to be on this journey.â€ â€œItâ€™s crazy to think one of these incredible girls is going to be babysitting my kids,â€ Brooke says as potential babysitters are brought to her front door in minivans. The contestants all shriek with glee after being told, â€œPack your bags, weâ€™re going to the park!â€
Just like contestants on â€œThe Bachelor,â€ The Babysitterâ€™s contestants are catty and judgmental.
â€œI donâ€™t want to gossip,â€ says one, â€œbut there are some girls who are not here for the right reasons.â€
â€œIâ€™m not here to make friendsâ€¦Iâ€™m here to make $15 an hour.â€ Another contestant smirks.
Mom Brooke also finds herself facing many of the same challenges that have plagued stars of “The Bachelor.” At one point, she finds herself falling for a babysitter, only to discover that she doesnâ€™t work weekends. The horror! Another time, she asks where a contestant is only to be told she canceled at the last minute.Â When Brooke cries to her friends about how hard it is to pick a sitter, one friend tells her to follow her heart, while the other tells her to pick whoeverâ€™s the cheapest. â€œIt adds up!â€
The contestants then back-stab and fight with each other to earn invites to group dates to test drive mini vans, and to hear the magic words, â€œWill you accept this sippy cup?â€
Despite her fears that sheâ€™ll end up alone (or worse, have to ask her in-laws for help), it looks like Brooke has a happy ending in store. The final scene shows Brooke down on one knee, asking her chosen sitter to please acceptâ€¦the keys to her minivan.
