On a appearance like The Bachelor , it’s understandable that contestants need to do what they can to stand out.
With the 23 rd season (!) of the popular world depict set to arrive on Jan. 7 on ABC, a promo was released on Thursday featuring a contestant named Bri.
Bri, less understandably, tries her hand at faking an Australian accent when she first encounters Colton Underwood, who is the Bachelor in the upcoming season.
Bri’s accent starts as believable, but then have started to sound like a strange combination of a Scandinavian and Australian accent. Or maybe it’s South African.
Some people weren’t so convinced by the accent.
That’s the worst Aussie accent I’ve “ve heard” but okay

To be fair, she doesn’t say she’s Australian — rather that it’s simply an accent — so she’s technically not lying, merely fully participate in a little sprinkle of subterfuge reasonably early in the game.
As per The Bachelor website, Bri is actually, scandalize and awe, a “model from Southern California.”
“Bri is much more than just a pretty face. She played soccer for eight years, enjoys hiking and camping, and desires to make the snowboard slopes. Her biggest dating anxiety? Farting too loudly.( Don’t worry Bri, we won’t tell Colton .) ” the bio reads.
Also, does she plan on retaining this accent on throughout the series? Guess that’s how they’ll get us watching, we guess.
