Do you accept these fries? Things get messy for The Bachelorette’s JoJo Fletcher when suitor James inexplicably tries to shove a plateful of fast food into his mouth at once in the Monday, July 11, episode.

The ABC dating series’ preview clip shows Fletcher on a date with James, Chase and Robby. James opts for an unorthodox method of impressing the real estate developer, 25, and encourages her to shove as many fries into his mouth as she can. And they say romance is dead!

“Chase and Robby, they got some competition coming because James Taylor’s bringing his A-game,” James, 29, tells the camera, referring to himself in the third person. Perhaps previous castoff Chad Johnson and his love for snacking has influenced the other guys?

Chase, for one, is all in favor of James flaunting his french fry feat.

“JoJo dares James to shove as many french fries in his mouth as possible, and I’m thinking, ‘Do it, man,’” Chase, 27, says to the camera. “I think he wanted to do it, but it also made him look highly unattractive, and it was hilarious.”

Fletcher certainly finds the whole thing hilarious, but she is also a bit repulsed as she asks Chase to give James a napkin.

James stood out in the show’s previous episode when he told the Bachelorette that front-runner Jordan Rodgers had been acting “entitled” around his fellow competitors. This led Fletcher to question whether she was seeing the former NFL quarterback’s true colors.

Watch the cringeworthy scene in the video above.

The Bachelorette airs on ABC Mondays at 8 p.m. ET.
