America went nuts last night when they heard the news that Juan Pablo Galavis is the new Bachelor. Desiree Hartsock may not’ve realized Juan Pablo’s potential, but the execs at ABC sure do: He’s the’s the first non-white Bachelor in the show’s 11-year run, which demonstrates a modicum of progress. (It was just last year that two African American men filed a suit against the show for racial discrimination).
So, here’s the big question: Could The Bachelor ever do a gay-male edition? Hartsock was asked this question on HuffPost Live, and while her answer was a lackluster “sure,” that it was asked of a Bachelor/Bachelorette contestant at all was kind of a revelation. ABC, it’s time to make this happen.
And to maximize exposure make the gay bachelor a celebrity—a list that seems to be growing daily. (Also, if he finds his true love, you need to air his wedding special, because people will watch the shit out of it.)
