‘The Bachelorette’ Brokeback Bachelors Are NOT GAY

Bachelorette Contestant Clint Confesses He’s in Love With Fellow Contestant JJ, Reveals They’ve “Grown Close in the Shower” — Watch.

However, a steamy make out isn’t all it takes to win this girl’s heart — Kaitlyn is one of the most down-to-earth Bachelorettes we’ve ever seen, and you better believe she has a list of must-haves when it comes to her Prince Charming. (Not to be confused with Prince Farming.) We’ve rounded up some of the most important qualities Kaitlyn’s final pick should possess. Putting trust in that promo is a dicey idea, though, considering they’re marketing Clint as the “Brokeback Bachelor.” The ad casts Clint as a manipulative man who is trying to use the titular bachelorette, Kaitlyn, to stay close to JJ. I never thought that I’d meet somebody like that,” Clint tells the camera, before dropping the bomb and confessing: “Falling in love with a man never crossed my mind.” “Clint and JJ, they’re so into each other,” another contestant tells the camera, before Clint himself admits that they’ve “grown very close to each other in the shower.” And that’s just the beginning of their bromance — pick up the latest issue of Us Weekly, on newsstands now, for exclusive details on Clint and JJ’s relationship. It’s a pretty disgusting characterization from ABC, particularly because there are some suspicious cuts of dialogue that sound forced together. (“We’ve grown very close … in the shower,” Clint says, with a very noticeable break in the middle.) This story sounds reductive to say the least; the evil gay man manipulating a woman is a nasty trope.

Check out the five traits Kaitlyn’s future husband better have if he’s going to win her heart, and click here if you want to spoil yourself silly and find out who she picks! This would all be a bit more palatable — although not “Brokeback Bachelor,” that’d be disgusting no matter what — if the series had bothered to cast a gay bachelor or bachelorette before. She seemed to appreciate that a few of the contestants who were initially Team Britt came forward to fess up, and we have a feeling she’ll definitely send players packing if they aren’t there for — wait for it — the right reasons (cue Desiree Hartsock rapping).

The franchise is actually remarkably bad on a diversity front, with an almost entirely straight, white cast of bachelors and bachelorettes over the years. The diversity deficit is so grim that Jesse Tyler Ferguson and George Takei got together a couple of years ago to produce a parody video for Funny or Die called “The First Gay Bachelor.” Unsurprisingly, it looked far more entertaining than the actual Bachelor franchise. As previously reported by the Inquisitr, Brady Toops ended up leaving the show on his own accord, and was approached by host Chris Harrison before exiting.

As we know from Chris Soules season of The Bachelor, Kaitlyn has an adventurous spirit, which is why there was no way she was going to end up living on a farm with a cow for her BFF (no offense, Chris).
