Rachel Lindsay Isn't Happy Peter Weber Is 'The Bachelor' Over Mike Johnson

Former Bachelorette Rachel Lindsay is “bored” watching people who look like Peter Weber on The Bachelor, and thinks it should have been Mike Johnson who was chosen instead.

“I think Peter seems like a very nice guy. He seems lovely. This is absolutely nothing against him, but how many Peters have we seen before? What season are we on? 24. So, we’ve seen 24 Peters,” Rachel told ET. “I’m bored. And it’s nothing personal against him.”

“For the first time, I was very confident that we were going to see our first black Bachelor,” Rachel continued. “And so if no one else is going to speak on it, then I guess it’s my duty to say it.”

“I want to be hopeful, but when you have a contestant like Mike Johnson, who seems to check all the boxes, how is he not the Bachelor? I don’t understand,” Rachel continued. “I’m sure they have some reason for not picking him, and I’m going to trust in that, but at the same time, the system isn’t working in giving us a Bachelor who is a person of color. So we need to change the system. Something has to be done. Break the rules, step outside the box, give the people what they want!”

The Bachelor is in charge of saying what they’re interested in and what they’re not. Some people don’t know that — they do ask you,” she continued. “You’ve seen some of the girls that Peter’s dated. It came out before, his girlfriend was in the news from the past, before Hannah. So, you know what his type is at this point. And so, I expect girls to look more like Hannah than they do like me or someone else of color.”
