People Are Very Confused by an Editing Mistake on ‘The Bachelor’ Tonight
  • Fans noticed that something was a bit weird about the Bachelor Mansion tonight…as in, there was a random bottle of maple syrup on the coffee table during a cocktail party.

    Anyways, Twitter obviously wasn’t going to let this slide, and quickly questioned why there was a bottle of syrup just hanging out:

    Other viewers pointed out the bottle of whipped cream right next to it:

    So, with both the whipped cream and the syrup maybe they had just been having dessert? Like, waffles? It’s all very unclear!
