BACHELOR RECAP

Last night's episode of The Bachelor (2002-) said goodbye to some of the most loved contestants of the season, as well as disclosing the feelings of each of the girls and their stance in their relationship with Matt James.


Protests Against Racism of 'The Bachelor'

We have to start off by addressing the rocky waters surrounding the entire Bachelor franchise. Spoiler alert, this episode does not address the racist claims against The Bachelor in any way. However, fans have taken matters into their own hands, protesting the franchise by not watching last night's episode.

Bryan Abasolo On The Immature Interview

Host Chris Harrison has stepped down from the show after excusing contestant Rachael Kirkconnell's racist past in an interview with Season 21 Bachelorette Rachel Lindsay.

Harrison blatantly disrespects Lindsay throughout the interview posing the question,

"Who the hell are you?"

In the Bachelor Nation podcast Talking It Out (2021-) co-host Dr. Bryan Abasolo addresses the interview Harrison had with Lindsay, Abasolo's wife of two years.

"Well, I'll tell you who she is Chris. She's Rachel Motherf***in' Lindsay. Strong Black woman, a pioneer in this franchise, the realest Bachelorette who tells it like it is and quite frankly the best thing to ever happen to this franchise. That's who she is."
