Becca Tilley is all for the Bachelor or Bachelorette showcasing same-sex relationships – if it’s done right.“I know they did that in Australia.
I think they had a Bachelorette who was bisexual and I just saw a few clips on TikTok. I didn’t watch the season or anything, but it looked like it was pretty well done and done in a very respectful way,” the 33-year-old former Bachelor contestant said on Us Weekly’s “Here for the Right Reasons” podcast. “The one thing that I have learned in my life so far is that you really can’t make everyone happy.”Bachelor Nation did highlight Demi Burnett and Kristian Haggerty’s relationship (and brief engagement) on season 6 of Bachelor in Paradise.“With Demi and Kristian from Bachelor in Paradise, there was that story line, they opened up that conversation.
And I think if they do it in a way that’s respectful and just normalizes same-sex relationships, I think there’s a way that it can be done,” Becca continued. “I just worry that, you know, it turns into something — I just never want it to be done in a way that we go backwards.
I hope that one day that’s an option and that they consider that. But I also wonder, like, what would that look like for everyone in the house? … It would be great TV [if the contestants fell for each other] because you’re all living in a house together.
