Ben Higgins Responds to 'The Bachelor' Diversity Concerns

Ben Higgins and Lauren Bushnell look smitten with each other while stepping out for another post-engagement appearance on Tuesday (March 15) in New York City.

The 27-year-old The Bachelor star responded to concerns over the lack of diversity with the casting of the new The Bachelorette in a conference call with reporters.

“First off, JoJo as the bat, I think she deserves it,” Ben said (via Variety). “How they decide on The Bachelorette is not up to me. I didn’t even know I was in consideration to the next Bachelor until they called me.”

Lauren was asked if she had anything to add on the subject and she said, “No, I think Ben pretty much summed it up. Neither him or myself have anything to do with the decision-making.”

Donnie Wahlberg Defends Love for 'The Bachelor' in New Essay

The Bachelor‘s season finale airs tonight and one person who you can count on watching is Donnie Wahlberg, who just defended his love for the show in a new op-ed essay.

“This has to be some kind of karmic retribution,” the 46-year-old entertainer starts off the essay. “A turning of the tables for all of those husbands out there who had to put up with their wives wanting to go see the New Kids on The Block reunion concerts. Sweet revenge for the nice-guy hubbies who had to put up with their wives talking about how hunky Jordan was, cute Joey still is or how much of a ‘bad boy’ Donnie was, during his Public Enemy T-shirt-wearing rebellious phase.”

“Payback, for all those men who spent their paychecks on surprise New Kids concert tickets for their spouses. The same guys who had to then shell out another $30 for a Jonathan T-shirt, or even more (than I care to mention) for a meet and greet photo op with the band,” he continues.

“What other explanation could there be, that could make sense of the fact that… I am addicted to the The Bachelor!!!” Donnie said. “It’s karma, isn’t it? What other explanation can there be for the fact that I know all these Bachelor guys on a first-name and character-description basis, the same way that so many husbands had to get to know Donnie, Jordan, Danny, Jon and Joe?”

Amy Schumer wasn’t happy with The Bachelor host Chris Harrison over his remarks about former contestant Jubilee and her “complicated” life.

“There is nothing wrong with “complicated” women Chris Harrison. You treated it like something she should fight. A women shouldn’t try to Be less complicated so as to hopefully attract a man. And she shouldn’t find value in herself just because a dude liked her. Come on bro,” the 34-year-old comedian tweeted. “She is smart and strong and a sergeant in the military. She lost her entire family and you say she must fight off being complicated.”

Chris then replied to Amy a bit later to explain everything.
