Bachelor Nation is asking for Rachel Lindsay so as to add one other function to her resume, and he or she 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 potential of internet hosting the ‘After the Ultimate Rose’ particular and they want her to tackle the function,” a supply advised Us Weekly. “She continues to be weighing the choices and is pushing for ‘After the Ultimate Rose’ to incorporate an even bigger dialog about race total within the franchise. No remaining choice has been made but.”
Whereas nothing has been introduced, Lindsay has been a preferred alternative for the brand new host following Chris Harrison’s announcement that he’s quickly stepping down from his internet hosting duties. The franchise’s first-ever Black lead has gone on to grow to be a particular correspondent for Further; to host MTV’s Ghosted: Love Gone Lacking and ESPN’s First Take, a radio present known as Soccer Frenzy; and to cohost the podcast Bachelor Blissful Hour with former bachelorette Becca Kufrin — so she has the abilities to tug off the gig. But when there’s one factor Lindsay would not have to do, it is pose because the figurehead for the franchise after they’ve made one other snafu. Lindsay has been persistently telling the Bachelor franchise to take a tough have a look at itself since she accepted the title of bachelorette, even calling out how poorly her finale was carried out compared to her predecessor’s — a predecessor whose fiancé was revealed to be liking all kinds of bigoted posts on-line!
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 would not have to function the “reminder” that the Bachelor has been “numerous” 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.
