The upcoming CSI: Miami episode "Dead on Arrival" bites back at the reality series The Bachelor for beating Miami in the ratings last month.

As CSI Files previously reported, the first part of The Bachelor: After the Final Rose took the top spot over Miami on March 2. "This episode is about The Bachelor, although we're calling it 'The Marrying Kind,'" Eva La Rue (Natalia Boa Vista) told Watch With Kristin. "And it all sort of came about because we sort of got killed in the ratings by The Bachelor, but not really killed. It was more sort of maimed. And so we just thought that turnabout was fair play—that we should do a show about the marrying kind and that we, being a show about murder, should kill back."

"Dead on Arrival" will air on April 22. The episode finds the team looking into the death of a contestant on 'The Marrying Kind'. The star of the fictional reality show breaks the heart of one young woman, but when he looks for the other woman, he finds her lifeless body instead. Adrianne Palicki from Friday Night Lights will guest star as one of the victim's fellow contestants on the show.

Emily Procter (Calleigh Duquesne) shared her connection to another young woman guest-starring in "Dead on Arrival", Austin Highsmith. "There's a girl that I love named Austin, and she's actually the bachelorette that bites the bullet," Procter explained. "Austin's been a waitress at one of my favorite restaurants forever, and I said, 'Are you an actress? Give me your head shot!' So I'm really excited for her. I remember when that was me."

The original information is from Watch With Kristin.
