That noise you hear is the sound of a disappointed Justin Forsett sighing. Why is he sighing, you ask? Well, because the perfectly reasonable excuse he had for watching ABC's The Bachelorette just expired, and from now on, if he chooses to continue tuning in for the dating game show, he'll be opening himself up to criticism.
The Ravens running back's cousin, Christian, was eliminated at the beginning of Tuesday night's episode. The 26-year-old had been vying for JoJo's heart since May 24, but the woman at the center of it all cut him from the roster of men chasing after her like he was an undrafted free agent in training camp.
Talk about a stiff arm.
Forsett, who earlier in the program's season wished his cousin luck on Twitter, had this to say to him following the unfortunate result:
Proud of you cuz! https://t.co/b3oHnLHThW— Justin Forsett (@JForsett) June 8, 2016
To which Christian responded:
Damn — Week 1 is still more than three months away and Baltimore has already taken an L.
The news is especially hard to come to grips with because Christian was ousted before fellow participant Chad. For those of you who don't watch the show (good work, by the way, for caring about your brain cells) that guy is more villainous James Harrison and Tom Brady combined. And even though Chad looks to be out now as well — Tuesday's edition ended on a cliffhanger, but it's all but certain he'll be a goner when it returns — Christian deserved better.
Maybe Forsett will use this as fuel in 2016, and look to avenge his cousin. Or maybe he'll forget about it after another 24 hours, because, hello, it's The Bachelorette.
Yeah, definitely the second one.
