People Think Trump Is Treating His Supreme Court Nomination Like A Reality Show

"I can't wait to see which Supreme Court nominee gets the rose!"

Posted on January 31, 2017, at 1:11 p.m. ET

On Tuesday evening, President Trump will announce his pick for the Supreme Court. In the lead-up to the announcement, the CNN's Ariane de Vogue reported two leading contenders would be brought to DC to "build suspense." The Washington Post's Supreme Court reporter was ... surprised ... by the move.

Sweet lord. @Arianedevogue reports both Gorsuch and Hardiman being brought to DC to build suspense

People soon started to joke on Twitter that Trump was treating the announcement like a reality show or beauty pageant. Like The Bachelor, for instance.

I can't wait to see which Supreme Court nominee gets the rose! #SupremeCourt

"Who will get Supreme rose in the East Room? Tonight at 8 p.m., the dramatic conclusion."

"This is a circus."

@Phil_Mattingly I expect to see a tv commercial teasing "The Bachelor: Supreme Court Edition" Who will he give the rose to? This is a circus

Others made "Miss Universe" references.

That moment that Trump stands behind two Supreme Court nominees with a crown...

Or Apprentice references.

"Will this literally be Apprentice style?"

Absolutely sure I'm not the first to ask, but will this literally be Apprentice style?

Others tried to place bets for who the nominee would be.

What about this guy?

My bet for Trump's supreme Court nomination
