If you’re a fan of the Bachelor series, you’ll know that right now, we’re in the THICK of Richie’s series, in his journey to find love. CHEESE.

However, as the season heats up, so do the social media posts from the show. The Bachelor AU instagram has been in the spotlight this morning as they posted a photo of Bachelor Richie working the bench press.

“In Richie’s downtime in the Bach pad he likes to maintain a healthy physique,” the snap was captioned, along with a “muscle” emoji.

Seems pretty normal, right?

Well, the 31-year-old has copped some serious flack about his choice of light weights. “That awkward moment when we bench heavier than the bachie,” one user commented.


“Maybe he’s warming up lol haha,” another wrote.

Unsurprisingly, the memes have come through thick and fast.

However, celebrity trainer Tracy Anderson, who is responsible for the bodies of Gwyneth Paltrow and Madonna, is all for keeping the weights light, according to a report on news.com.au.

“For me, fitness is all about high repetitions and low resistance. I mean 60 reps with 10 different exercises using weights of three pounds (1.3kg) or below.”
