‘Bachelor’ Finale Promo: Courtney as The Evil Queen From ‘OUAT’

Courtney Evil Queen ABC PromoIf you’ve watched anything on ABC in the past three months, you’ve probably seen the Once Upon a Time promo – the one that serves to entice viewers to tune in for the non-stop action the series has to offer with quick cuts and dramatic cymbals and drums. It follows the classic theme: the ultimate clash between good and evil. And during the March 11 episode of Once Upon a Time, ABC aired a Bachelor commercial that’s a riff on their own aggressive marketing campaign: “Good vs. Courtney.

You can watch both promos below, and notice that in place of Prince Charming throwing his sword at the Evil Queen, we find Courtney making her double gun “killshot!” gesture. Whoever the wacky marketer behind this promo is deserves a round of applause, because whether or not this is the right way to promote The Bachelor, it’s certain an eye-catching way to go about it. 
Watch the matching promos below and enjoy the uncanny resemblance. 



Celebrity Editor Kelsea Stahler was born in a pile of dirt. Okay, she was actually born in an old Naval hospital in San Diego, which then became a pile of dirt and remained as such for a number of years before becoming a parking lot perfectly sized for circus tents, and finally a museum. She eventually left San Diego to attend New York University, where she studied Journalism and English literature — two less-than profitable liberal arts degrees about which guidance counselors warned her. Against all odds, she now resides in Brooklyn, where she fights the constant fear that the locals will soon discover she isn’t quite cool enough to live there, and makes a living writing absurd, pop culture features about Batman, zombies, vampires, funny people, and Ron Swanson.
