Joel Embiid was on Tuesday's episode of The Ringer's NBA Show, and talked about a number of off-court topics. Among them was his guilty pleasure TV watching (hint: it's Vampire Diaries). He was also asked whether he watches The Bachelor or not, on account of him previously tweeting about it, and after like five seconds of trying to avoid answering he confirmed that he did. Hey man, no need to be shy about that.
From there, host Kevin O'Connor asked if he would ever want to be the titular guy, and have a lot of women fighting/pretending to fight for him, he answered in the affirmative, but with a caveat, saying he'd want to do it "Just to slide into their DMs." He then expanded upon that by saying he wasn't looking for true love because "I'm too young. I'm only 22 years old. I'm just trying to have fun." The honesty is appreciated.
Obviously, O'Connor couldn't let him go without asking who his "secret crush" was, which makes sense since Embiid recently implored his Twitter followers to vote for him to make the NBA All-Star game so he could get with her...whoever she may be:
And while he opted to keep his lips sealed on that subject, it doesn't take a genius to figure out that he was probably talking about Rihanna. Guess you'll have to vote for him if you care about him verifying that or not.
