NASCAR driver Denny Hamlin makes cameo appearance on ‘The Bachelor’

Following his second major knee surgery during the offseason, Denny Hamlin is feeling frustrated by the process of rehabbing from his latest knee surgery but feels confident that he'll be fully healthy when it counts.

NASCAR driver Denny Hamlin has a deep, dark secret: He’s a big fan of the TV show, The Bachelor.

When producers of the ABC show found out, they decided to put Hamlin on an episode. That took place Monday, where the Joe Gibbs Racing driver did about a two-minute cameo.

This year’s Bachelor, Ben Higgins, asked Hamlin if he is a fan of the show.

“Absolutely, of course,” Hamlin said via a Skype session.

“Girls” star Allison Williams was also on the show. When Hamlin was introduced, Williams went into a typical fan routine.

“I can’t believe this, I’m such a fan,” Williams told Hamlin. “Yeah, it’s huge. I have to say Mark Martin in the No. 6 Valvoline was my main dude, but you’re so awesome, I can’t believe I’m looking at you.”

Hamlin then showed he had done his research: “Is it true you can change a tire, Ben? There might be an opening on our pit crew if this thing doesn’t work out.”

Hamlin’s longtime girlfriend Jordan Fish broadcast the session on Periscope and archived it. Here’s the full session:
