Bachelor In Paradise Fans Couldn't Resist This Friends Joke After Last Night's Flub

You can't call someone by the wrong name and not expect to be called out on it. And if you happen to call a woman you're pursuing "Rachel" — when that's not her name — you can't expect people not to make Friends jokes about it.
Adam appeared on the most recent season of The Bachelorette, with Rachel Lindsay; Sarah appeared on Nick Viall's season of The Bachelor.
There are a lot of Bachelor in Paradise contestants, so it's normal for us to get confused while watching at home. But it's still pretty cringeworthy to see the contestants call each other by the wrong name on screen.
Naturally, the scene reminded people of a classic moment in Friends history. Ross (David Schwimmer) was literally at the altar with Emily (Helen Baxendale). But during his vows, Ross said "I, Ross, take thee, Rachel," instead of saying Emily's name. Yikes.
Plenty of great minds on Twitter had the same joke (and GIF) ready to go.
One person even spelled out the show's title with its ridiculous stylization.
In terms of the worst Ross Geller moments, the wedding flub doesn't get nearly enough attention. It's often overshadowed by "we were on a break" — the most unacceptable of "excuses" — even though it's remarkably awful. We can't speak for Sarah, but Emily and Rachel definitely deserved better.
This isn't the only rumor surrounding Adam and Sarah, though. Fans think there's a love triangle going on involving Adam, Sarah, and Raven, another contestant on Nick Viall's Bachelor season. Only time will tell whether or not Adam will pursue a relationship with one of them after Paradise is over — but if he does, hopefully he'll get her name right.
