Bachelor Nation is looking for Rachel Lindsay so as to add one other function 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 manufacturing 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 informed Us Weekly. “She continues to be weighing the choices and is pushing for ‘After the Ultimate Rose’ to incorporate a much bigger dialog about race total within the franchise. No ultimate choice has been made but.”
Whereas nothing has been introduced, Lindsay has been a well-liked alternative for the brand new host following Chris Harrison’s announcement that he’s briefly stepping down from his internet hosting duties. The franchise’s first-ever Black lead has gone on to change into a particular correspondent for Additional; 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 Glad Hour with former bachelorette Becca Kufrin — so she has the abilities to tug off the gig. But when there’s one factor Lindsay does not have to do, it is pose because the figurehead for the franchise after they’ve made one other snafu. Lindsay has been constantly 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 performed compared to her predecessor’s — a predecessor whose fiancé was revealed to be liking all types 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 does not have to function the “reminder” that the Bachelor has been “various” 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.
