Robby Hayes Responds To 'Bachelor' Nick Viall's Ring Choice

By

Oh, Robby Hayes. You're so funny tall. You are tall and you are second-place cute, my man.

The “Bachelorette” season 12 runner-up reacted to rumors the engagement ring Nick Viall for “Bachelor” season 21 winner Vanessa Grimaldi was the same as the one he picked for JoJo Fletcher.

On Instagram, Robby shared a photo of himself holding the ring and sitting across from precious jewel czar Neil Lane.

The caption read,

Did I mention that my favorite movie is 'LORD OF THE RINGS?'

Oh, Robbyrt. You are a card.

Neil told People the odds of two Bachelor Nation contestants picking the same ring is pretty likely.

He said,

I bring six rings and over the years, over the nine years, some are the same, some have changed settings or are re-designed, and some are totally new… The most important thing is for a ring to speak to the particular man and to the woman he is in love with.

If you're anything like this “Bachelor” fan right here, you're not engaged and find this part of the narrative pretty boring. Gone are the days of grown adults sobbing on boats and using food-based sex tricks to earn their beloved's attention.

This has nothing to do with the engagement ring scandal, I'm just complaining a little before I dive back in and tell you the ring Nick chose cost an estimated $100,000 dollars.

Perhaps it's because I'm a poor who's only ever dated poors, but if a man tried to hand me a diamond worth 100 grand (to essentially act as a symbol telling other men I'm no longer available for doing it), I'd hock it and put that money toward our honeymoon in space.

Regarding the ring's appearance — because some people are fascinated by descriptions of other people's jewelry and we have to respect their interests — a source told E!,

It's a traditional ring with an old-fashioned feel. It's got an old-soul -- it's classic and elegant.

Did you hear that? The ring has “an old soul.” The ring has a soul. It has a soul.

I am officially lost. Set whatever room you're in on fire and throw your phone inside before you leave.
