Season 25 ‘Most Diverse’ Ever
Season 25 was supposed to be the most historic season of The Bachelor. Matt James was the first Black lead. Additionally, the women were touted as the “most diverse” in franchise history. Sadly, circumstances outside of the Bachelor house has led to major hate being thrown at many BIPOC contestants.
As fans likely know, frontrunner Rachael Kirkconnell’s past racially-insensitive behavior came to light last month. Bachelor Nation host Chris Harrison did an interview with former Bachelorette Rachel Lindsay. In an attempt to defend Rachael Kirkconnell, Chris Harrison stuck his foot in his mouth.
When he announced shortly afterward that he was taking some time away from the show, fans blamed Rachel Lindsay. Since many Bachelor Nation contestants spoke up for Rachel Lindsay, they became a target for fans.
According to Entertainment Tonight, Abigail was among the 25 Bachelor contestants who banded together and issued a statement of support for Rachel Lindsay.
Unfortunately, the BIPOC contestants are getting racist hate from fans.
