Ladies, would you go on a chaperoned date with a guy? No?

OK, would you if those chaperones were Ice Cube and Kevin Hart?

The “Ride Along 2” stars appeared on a recent episode of ABC’s “The Bachelor,” joining Ben Higgins on his first date with contestant Caila.

Sure, it may seem cool to have two A-list celebrities riding along (see what I did there) on your date. But, it also could get awkward.

In one scene, while the quartet was cruising down the highway in a convertible, Higgins, who was driving, tried to get to know Caila by asking what inspired her to be here. Before the girl could get out a response, Hart interjected with, "Good question."

When Caila, sitting in the passenger seat, turned back to acknowledge Hart, the diminutive comedian instructed her, "Look at him; don't worry about us. We're not even here."

When Higgins asked Caila about her favorite color, Hart again interjected, this time with, "There you go." She responded yellow and asked him what color is his favorite. When he responded blue, Hart shouted from the back, "Hey, my favorite color is blue, too! OK, go. Don't want to interrupt you. Go! Sorry. Sorry about that."

Oh, Kevin… Well, at least he apologized and Calia seemed to take it all in stride.

"This is such a unique date. I didn't think I would have this much fun," she said.

Ice Cube was mostly quiet during that portion of the date, but it’s his assisting Higgins with prepping for the date that was funny.

While at a liquor store, the former N.W.A. member suggested Higgins purchase Hennessy Cognac and prophylactics.

"Now, do you got condoms? Do you got condoms?" Ice Cube asked Higgins before directing the store clerk to get condoms for the Bachelor.

In his confessional, Higgins said, "Ice Cube is trying to get me to buy condoms, hard liquor. I think Ice Cube and I may have different styles when it comes to first dates."

Well, considering Ice Cube and his wife of 24 years, Kimberly, have four children, including a daughter, I don’t think his first date suggestions were to be taken seriously. But, it was funny watching him slip into character.

Watch the full episode below to see more shenanigans from Hart and Ice Cube, including Hart joining the couple in the hot tub. "The Bachelor" airs Mondays at 8 p.m. ET on ABC. "Ride Along 2" hits theaters Friday.
