“The Bachelorette Australia” Will Feature A Bisexual Lead With Men And Women Fighting For Her Love
The Bachelor has had few openly LGBTQ people involved with the series at all whatsoever. Former Bachelor, Colton Underwood, recently came out as gay and got a Netflix gig, a contestant on Bachelor In Paradise, Demi Burnett, brought her girlfriend onto the show, and former contestant, Jaimi King was the first openly bisexual person on the show when she dated Nick Viall in 2017 for the 21st season. Well the times, they are a-changing! At least in Australia. The new season of the Australian version of The Bachelorette will feature the first-ever openly bisexual lead, Brooke Blurton, who will be dating both men and women.
E! News says that Channel 10 in Australia announced yesterday that Brooke IS their new Bachelorette:

Brooke appeared on The Bachelor Australia in 2018 and also Bachelor In Paradise the next year. She’s openly bisexual and her season will include both male and female daters. Casting is ongoing, so if you want to date a hot bisexual on TV, apply now! Brooke is going to have the first-ever mixed-gender cast of any Bachelor series worldwide, and she spoke to the Daily Telegraph about bringing bisexual realness to TV:
“I am not too sure if Australia is ready for it—I certainly am. If it makes people feel uncomfortable in any way, I really challenge them to think about why it does.”
She also posted about her new fast-paced Bachelorette life:
Now does Kelly Ripa hate this too, or is it just straight TV dating she finds disgusting?
But The Bachelorette Australia has its work cut out for it since Tila Tequila and MTV set the god standard of bisexual TV dating in the mid-aughts. There’s no way that The Bachelorette Australia can outclass this:
That trailer has sex, violence, and vomit! The Bachelorette Australia has a lot to live up to!
