Episode 116 | “It’s Time”

Si & Veronica are joined by Brett Vergara and Leigh Chesley from the Bachelor Diversity Campaign for a super sweet episode 116! Before we hop into our Bachelor content, we had to discuss how main Vanderpump Rules leads were dismissed from the show for racist remarks that bubbled to the surface. Skai Jackson is on the frontlines of calling racists out on social media, to the point that Twitter slowed her down for half a day. Iggy Azalea and Playboi Carti have a kid that we are just now learning about (well at least Veronica is, Si says he knew). Vee went “Yikes!” to J.K. Rowling doubling and tripling down on her TERF status with recent transphobic tweets and statements. Brett and Leigh gave us the lowdown on how the Bachelor Diversity Campaign got started, how they started their Bachelor fandom, and their specific asks for Warner Brothers and the Bachelor Franchise. How many demands need to be fulfilled for it to be good enough? How will Bachelor make a statement to own up to their racist past? We are excited to hopefully see changes in the top reality show. We also discussed Rachel Lindsay and Becca Kufrin’s most recent podcast addressing the race issue in Bachelor Nation with Brett and Leigh. Join us for what is always a good time and leave us a rating and review for a shoutout! Follow us @thefuturebachelor on Instagram! Thanks to you all who have subscribed!
