The Bachelor is getting mad—well, MADtv, that is.
The CW’s highly anticipated revival of the beloved sketch series premieres tonight at 9 p.m., and it is coming back with a hilarious riff on The Bachelor, which E! News can exclusively share with you.
In the exclusive video above, original cast member Will Sasso reprises the beloved role of Kenny Rogers, who lands himself the plum role of the Bachelor…and even has real-life former contestants competing for his alcohol-stained love.
Some of the ladies making surprise cameos in the sketch? Haley and Emily Ferguson, who famously named their profession as “Twins” during Ben Higgins‘ season, and Courtney Robertson, one of the franchise’s most iconic villains and the winner of Ben Flajnik‘s season. (Spoiler alert: they didn’t last.)
And while the sketch is just as absurd as Kenny Rogers‘ accent and hair, there is some truth to their comedy about The Bachelor, especially when it comes the real reason many contestants join the show. Press play on the video above to see how Kenny’s journey as the Bachelor ends.
The original series ran from 1995-2009 on Fox, and featured stars such as Keegan- Michael Key, Jordan Peele, and Ike Barinholtz. In addition to Sasso, fans can expect to see appearances from Nicole Sullivan and Bobby Lee.
The new members of the ensemble include Carlie Craig, Chelsea Davison, Jeremy D. Howard, Amir K, Lyric Lewis, Piotr Michael, Michelle Ortiz and Adam Ray. After airing a 20th anniversary special earlier in the year, the CW decided to revive the sketch comedy series, with each episode featuring at least two returning cast members.
MADtv premieres tonight at 9 p.m. on the CW.
