Bachelor Nation is looking for Rachel Lindsay so as to add one other position to her resume, and she or he could also be into it. On Feb. 22, Us Weekly journal revealed that Lindsay was reportedly approached by The Bachelor production to debate stepping in because the host for the season’s “After the Rose” particular.
“ABC and Warner Bros. have spoken to Rachel about the possibility of hosting the ‘After the Final Rose’ special and they would like her to take on the role,” a supply advised Us Weekly. “She is still weighing the options and is pushing for ‘After the Final Rose’ to include a bigger conversation about race overall in the franchise. No final decision has been made yet.”
While nothing has been introduced, Lindsay has been a popular choice for the brand new host following Chris Harrison’s announcement that he’s temporarily stepping down from his hosting duties. The franchise’s first-ever Black lead has gone on to turn out to be a particular correspondent for Extra; to host MTV’s Ghosted: Love Gone Missing and ESPN’s First Take, a radio present known as Football Frenzy; and to cohost the podcast Bachelor Happy Hour with former bachelorette Becca Kufrin — so she has the talents to tug off the gig. But if there’s one factor Lindsay does not must do, it is pose as the figurehead for the franchise after they’ve made one other snafu. Lindsay has been persistently telling the Bachelor franchise to take a tough take a look at itself since she accepted the title of bachelorette, even calling out how poorly her finale was conducted in comparison to her predecessor’s — a predecessor whose fiancé was revealed to be liking all sorts of bigoted posts online!
I commend Lindsay for wanting to assist out the franchise that led her to her husband, Bryan, however she greater than deserves a break. She does not must function the “reminder” that the Bachelor has been “diverse” earlier than; she’s greater than their speaking piece and would in all probability be higher served if she took this as her cue to seek out her peace away from the franchise.
