Whether you're a fan or not of "The Bachelor," watching this spoof of it is going to make your Thursday go by a little faster (literally...it's 13 minutes long).

The internet show, "Burning Love," premiered online today and stars June Diane Raphael as Julie Gristlewhite, a dental hygienist who's looking for love. Like most contestants on "The Bachelor" and "The Bachelorette," Julie was recycled from a previous season of which she was kicked off.

The new season comes complete with all the stereotypical contestants: The hot guy who has a girlfriend, the guy who sings love songs, and the guy who's obsessed with showing off his wealth.

Gristlewhite is the predictably effervescent star who believes blindly in the possibility of finding love in front of millions of viewers over the course of just a few short weeks.
