Not really sure what to make of the new Bachelorette. It’s great that you have (finally) the first African-American female in the program’s history and it’s a true shame that it took roughly a decade (?) to ensure this no-brainer.
The program (thus far) is a guilty pleasure; entertaining in the best way reality TV is known for (salaciousness, men and women salivating over each other, hints at depth) and Rachel Lindsay, the Bachelorette herself, is doing an admirable job of being level-headed and projecting warmth and sufficient empathy to maintain interest.
What do you think of the show so far?
It seems this upcoming episode(s) on 06/26/17 will feature some kind of “explosion” (and no, I’m not going to make a bad joke about what kind of “explosion” we’re likely to see since the show isn’t X-rated at this time). This is great for viewership, and we can only speculate that the “wrestler guy” will somehow “explode” on Lee, who (so far…) is manipulating kindly Kenny like a puppeteer.
Meanwhile, Lee, the master manipulator not only seems to have issued racist (or close to it? I haven’t seen the tweets myself) tweets at some point, but a former Bachelor contestant Leah Block issued comparable tweets.
So, we’re glad to finally have a black Bachelorette, and we’re waiting to see how this “landmark” season unfurls.
