Now the standout from tonight’s Bachelorette episode – which would almost make you think he was being set up to be sent home – was obviously our young Magic Mike wannabe Ivan.
For a full recap, check out our rundown here:
New drinking game: drink every time Ivan dances or utters the word dance. #bacheloretteau— Jessica Riley (@jesrily) October 17, 2018
The dude loves to dance, and it’s surprisingly wholesome. We saw him dance while all the other blokes chucked a footy around and fed alpacas.
We watched him dance when he won one-on-one time with Ali.
We saw him dance for a second time during the cocktail party, one last ditch effort to stay within the mansion, to stay in the running for Ali’s heart. This one was perfectly to choreographed, and a big totally unsurprising surprise.

it's gonna be a dance, duh #BacheloretteAU
And finally we saw him groove over to the Bachelorette herself when he did by some miracle cop a rose, even though Ali does not want to have that many babies that quickly, and will certainly not be joining him in Atlanta when he auditions for Step Up.
Well Australia is confused about our feelings for Ivan. While my first reaction was to say fkn stop, I’m becoming more and more endeared by the goofy dude who believes in the transformative power of hip hop dance.
Let’s see how opinion is split on this very, very important issue.
Ivan stop fucking dancing dude #bacheloretteau— Adam Monaghan (@MrAdamMonaghan) October 17, 2018
Also these Ivan dance scenes. I cannot. Please tell me that they played music at least #BacheloretteAU— Jess Chandra (@jesschandra) October 17, 2018
And let’s talk about the (correct) flip side, the side of those of us who support a man looking to follow his big dreams.
I was going to comment on Ivan's dancing and say how embarrassing it is but you know what he loves it, he's living his best life out on that dance floor so good on him. You keep doing you Ivan! #BacheloretteAU pic.twitter.com/aTp7H3374Y— Stacey (@heartofgold81) October 17, 2018
Obviously he’s being given a bit of a lol edit because their personalities are not a match and because he’s chasing fame — but good on Ivan here all the same. More hetero men embracing dance as expression on the TV please. #BacheloretteAU https://t.co/63b88WHA0E— Bachelor of Hearts Podcast???? (@BOHpod) October 17, 2018
LOGIE FOR WHOEVER COORDINATED THAT SUBTLE SLO MO AT THE END OF IVAN'S DANCE #bacheloretteau— francesca kenneally (@del0reangray) October 17, 2018
To conclude, can we all take a second to come together and remember this iconic moment from Richie Strahan’s season of The Bachelor?
Was there ever a date where Hamish Blake dressed up as an adult baby and the couple had to care for him, and then he stared at them with a knowing smile as they made out in front of some Menulog? Or was that just a fever dream of mine? #BacheloretteAU— Alex Creece (@roguedyke) October 17, 2018
