Tired of those boring Bachelor and Bachelorette shows where a man picks from a harem of women in his search for love while a woman uneasily weeds through potential psychopaths and/or rapists in their search for a mate? Then tune in to Australia’s Bachelorette series as it will not only feature its first indigenous star but its first bisexual one. 26-year-old Brooke Blurton is ready to expand the show’s horizons as it will feature both male and female contestants. According to a report from Reuters:
Chosen as “The Bachelorette”, a spin-off from the long-running U.S. reality TV show “The Bachelor”, in which the star chooses who to date, Blurton said she is “so happy” bi people are finally being accepted.
“I’m so proud and I’m so happy this is happening,” said Blurton, who, as a Noongar-Yamatji woman from Western Australia, is also the show’s first Indigenous Bachelorette.
“I’m absolutely so ready for it and I think that I’m just excited for that exposure to how beautiful the community is,”
This isn’t Ms. Blurton’s first try at love via a TV show. The Reuters story notes that she competed in The Bachelor Australia in 2018 without success.
This should add some much-needed excitement to a reality show that’s become stale. What do you think of this new spin on the show?
