Amy Schumer Breaks News to 'The Bachelorette' Contestant That He Isn't Funny

Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

In an effort to find a fellow that will make The Bachelorette's Kaitlyn laugh, Amy Schumer takes on (and shits on) overconfident contestant JJ and others. JJ reveals to Amy that he dreams of being a stand-up comedian. Unfortunately for the contestant, Amy calls him a sweetheart who is "just missing charisma and humility and sense of humor."

Amy may have managed to inject some funny into JJ, since Kaitlyn (spoiler alert) ends up making out with him at the after party. Either way, the most notable exchange of the episode happens up above when JJ professes, "Sometimes I feel like I'm too smart for like 90% of the audience." Amy gently shoots back, "You're not."
