Don’t try to make plans with Jason Ritter and Melanie Lynskey on a Monday night. The Intervention stars and real-life couple spoke to Us Weekly’s Ashley Spencer at the Us Weekly Video Lounge at ChefDance at the Sundance Film Festival and revealed they’re among the die-hard members of Bachelor Nation.

“We order Thai food [from a place in L.A. called Bulan] and watch The Bachelor,” 38-year-old Lynskey said of her and boyfriend Ritter’s Monday routine. “We call it Bulan-chelor night.”
