After flying under the radar for most of the season, Kirpa's star finally rose this week on The Bachelor when viewers suddenly found themselves captivated by a mysterious injury on her chin. She played off all the questions about it on Twitter and now we know why: a deleted scene was released the next day revealing that she slipped and fell trying to get a perfect selfie. The Bachelor star Kirpa's Instagram shows that she's a master of the dramatic shot but she's not afraid to poke fun at herself either. Her feed is full of punny captions and even a Bachelor self-meme.
In a video posted to her Instagram, she explained that the bandage she was sporting on her chin in this week's episode was the result of a trip to the emergency room after wiping out on some rocks. "I was trying to be basic and take a picture in front of the ocean at the start of the sunset, but it had rained and I forgot about that," she says in the clip. "So, rocks and water: slippery."
Kirpa needed five stitches and also sprained her wrist trying to break her fall, but she comfortably laughed off the whole thing, which made her seem super relatable. The quality of her glamour shots doesn't appear to have suffered since her facial injury, but let's take a closer look at what Kirpa's Instagram reveals about her.
She Doesn't Take Herself Too Seriously
There are few things more annoying than when The Bachelor contestants come out the gate being overly precious about ~the journey~. Kirpa seems genuinely into Colton and they appear to be developing a sweet and sincere relationship. But it's a relief to know that Kirpa can make jokes about the show, too, as evidenced by a goofy meme she posted of her first moment out of the limo.
She Loves A Good Pun
From a group shot of the women fanning themselves in Singapore captioned "big fan of these girls" to this "hasta la pizza" photo, Kirpa's pun game would probably give your dad's a run for his money. And her funny captions seem like a fairly recent trend in comparison to her older, more seriously model-y posts.
She Has A Sarcastic Side
If puns aren't your cup of tea, fear not, because Kirpa's sense of humor is multi-faceted. She captioned a shot of herself in a sweatshirt that read "dead inside." across the front: "When someone tells me to smile more." She's funny, but don't mess with her either.
She Loves Billy Eichner
One of the first episodes of the season featured group dates with comedians Megan Mullally, Nick Offerman, and Billy Eichner. Kirpa posted one photo of herself in a deep lunge in front of Eichner. "All right, Kirpa. Don’t mess this up. Just walk up to @billyeichner and look super cool. *lunges* Nailed it," she captioned the pic. Of course she also posts plenty of relatable content like selfies with wine in pretty restaurants. Kirpa is all of us.
Not Every Rock Gets The Best Of Her
Despite her tumble in Thailand, Kirpa actually does have a killer Instagram game. I mean just look at all of her adorable profesh (and amateur) modeling shots.
Ultimately, it seems like Kirpa's time on The Bachelor has encouraged her to more publicly embrace her sense of humor as something that makes her unique. After all, the silver lining of being thrown into a mix of beautiful women in gorgeous evening wear is learning what makes you stand out.
