“The Bachelorette” teases Brokeback Bachelor twist
In its more than decade on the air, there has never been a gay contestant on ABC’s The Bachelor/Bachelorette franchise that viewers knew about.
Is that about to change?
Promos for next week’s episode of the reality show tease that there might be a possible romance brewing between contestants Clint and JJ who seem more interested in each other than courting Kaitlyn Bristowe.
‘Falling in love with a man never crossed my mind,’ Arlis says in the promo. ‘Kaitlyn’s not the right girl for me. I love JJ, so I need the rose tonight.’
He also says: ‘We’ve grown very close in the shower.’
Another contestant can be heard saying, ‘Clint and JJ, they’re so into each other.’
Regardless if this is true romance or just clever editing, ABC is certainly teasing viewers with the promo line: ‘This Brokeback bachelor will blow your mind.’
