The best and perhaps only way for a thinking human to watch The Bachelorette is with a glass of wine in hand while hurling snarky comments. Comedian, Bachelorette super-fan and all-around BAMF Amy Schumer lived the dream: she actually appeared on the show while doing just that.

Schumer was invited on to provide support for contestants trying their hand at stand-up. But she didn't really play along and pretend that one contestant named JJ was quite the catch he thought he was. She gets wide-eyed when she hears his pick-up line, "Hi I'm JJ, I'm divorced with a kid and live with my parents." She comforts him when he tells her his biggest worry: "Sometimes I feel like I'm too smart for 90% of the audience."

Afterward she adds with her trademark cutting humor: "JJ's a sweetheart. He's just missing, like, charisma, humility, and a sense of humor."
