There is a dark underbelly to The Bachelor and The Bachelorette, which is less concerned with love and more concerned with ratings. As such, many of the franchise’s stars have spoken out over the years, calling into question the morality of the show. Thanks to fictional television shows like UnREAL, which highlight the danger of reality TV tactics, viewers have begun to understand that it isn’t all love and roses. Not surprisingly, a lot of past contestants have since decided to separate themselves from Bachelor Nation.
Now, with the recent sexual assault allegations during the filming of Bachelor in Paradise Season 4, even more questions have come to light, not just about the morality but about the safety of the show. The investigation ultimately concluded there was no assault, and both parties involved, Corinne Olympios and DeMario Jackson have agreed to return for the reunion special.
But that hasn’t gotten rid of the tension just yet. Scroll through to find out which former Bachelor stars have since spoken out against the show.
