'Bachelorette' Rachel Lindsay Calls Out the 'Very White-Washed' Franchise: 'It's Ridiculous'

The 35-year-old former Bachelorette, and still the only black lead since its debut in 2002, is demanding change amid protests globally against systemic racism and police brutality.

“I can’t. I have to see some type of change. It’s ridiculous. It’s embarrassing. At this point, it’s embarrassing to be affiliated with it,” she said via an Us Weekly preview of the latest episode of AfterBuzz TV’s Bachelor A.M. With Kelsey Meyer, premiering at 3 p.m. ET.

“In 40 seasons, you’ve had one black lead. We have had 45 presidents and in 45 presidents, you have one black president. You are almost on par to say you’re more likely to become the president of the United States than you are a black lead in this franchise. That’s insane. That’s ridiculous,” she continued.

“It bothers me that certain things have happened that we just say, ‘Oh, hush hush,’ and ‘Let’s just move on past it.’ No! We need to acknowledge it, because what you’re doing is perpetuating this type of behavior, you’re continuing to.”

“I don’t know how you are a part of The Bachelor franchise and you’re watching what’s happening in our country right now and you don’t self reflect that you’ve been part of the problem. You continue to perpetuate this type of behavior when you’re putting out something that is very white-washed and doesn’t have any type of color in it and you’re not trying to be effective and change that so I think that they have to, at this point, give us a black Bachelor for season 25. You have to. I don’t know how you don’t.”

'Bachelor' Couple Arie Luyendyk Jr. & Lauren Burnham Reveal She Suffered Miscarriage

Arie Luyendyk Jr. and Lauren Burnham are opening up about an incredibly painful experience.

The couple documented their journey as they get a pregnancy test and find out, to Lauren‘s surprise, they she is expecting their second child. They also have a 1-year-old daughter together, Alessi.

“We bought a new house with more space, we planned how we wanted to tell you all and we envisioned our future with Alessi‘s little brother/sister. We were planning to share our journey through pregnancy with you, but unfortunately we didn’t get the happy story we had hoped for,” they said.

They revealed that the trouble started with her ultrasound, which showed that the baby looked only 5 weeks old when it should have been 8 weeks along. After waiting another week, they returned to discover that she had suffered a missed miscarriage, which happens when the embryo has died, but has not been physically miscarried.

“It’s been a roller coaster of emotions going from scared at first a little bit because it was so soon, then happy, then stress and worry for weeks on end, and then obviously today was the bad news. It’s consumed our thoughts for the last month. It’s been hard holding this back from everybody,” Arie said.

“I was really excited to tell you guys that we were pregnant, and I feel like this is the best way for us to tell the whole story,” Lauren added.

“Hopefully the next time you see a video with the word pregnancy it’s positive and it’s good news,” Arie went on to say, hopefully.

Arie also debuted a new look in quarantine.

The Bachelor's Chris Soules & Victoria Fuller Are Getting More Serious!

Former The Bachelor star Chris Soules is “exclusively dating” Victoria Fuller, who was a contestant on this year’s installment of the reality series.

The two stars have been quarantined together at his home in Iowa and now Us Weekly has reported that their relationship is getting more serious.

“She is still quarantining with him in Iowa,” the source told the outlet. “She drove to visit [a friend] who lives in Des Moines over Memorial Day weekend but is now back with Chris.”

Chris and Victoria haven’t made their relationship Instagram official yet, but she has shared several photos from inside his home during the quarantine.

Chris was the star of season 19 back in 2015 and he got engaged to Whitney Bischoff, but that relationship was short-lived.

Ben Higgins, who is one of Chris‘ longtime friends, says he was shocked by news of their relationship. He said, “Chris is a good buddy of mine. We’ve stayed friends and we’ve stayed in communication through his ups and downs and through my ups and downs. I will tell you this, he has not confirmed or denied to me as a friend if this is happening. … I don’t know her, but I’m shocked that it happened.”
