We'd regret not doing this too

When you're living an experience like being the Bachelorette and finding your spouse on a TV show, it's important to live that life without any regrets. But current Bachelorette Rachel Lindsay has one, and we really can't blame her for it.

On Monday's "Men Tell All" special, host Chris Harrison asked Lindsay if she has any regrets. Now that filming is over, she's reportedly still engaged, and the finale for her season is only a week away from airing. However, in light of all the excitement, she hardly hesitated before bringing up a name that surprised basically no one: Lee Garrett.

"If I'm just honest... I'm going to be 100 percent honest... I'm just going to say one word: Lee," Lindsay admitted. "I would have sent him home sooner."

Garrett was, shall we say, not a fan favorite this season. He ruffled a lot of feathers online at the very start of the season — before he really even got any significant airtime — by tweeting some racist and misogynistic remarks on Twitter. As is often the case, those comments were quickly screen-capped by the general public before going viral.

Then on the show, he said things like he was a "meninist," dismissed white privilege and claimed he would never date a woman who used a dating site or app, even though he admitted to being a "trigger-happy left-swiping" Tinder user.

Since it was "Men Tell All," Garrett was there to defend himself, and bless his heart, he tried. "I make jokes when I'm uncomfortable in inappropriate times," he said. "It doesn't always come off right, and I definitely learned that about myself."

Despite his apologies and attempts to close this chapter, it was Lindsay who had the last word. "You can meet me backstage and I'd be more than happy to give you a black history lesson and a lesson on women's rights," she told him.
