Here’s What Rachel Lindsay Said When Asked If She’d Ever Host “The Bachelor”

“Honestly, I can’t even go there,” she started, noting that Harrison’s departure from the collection is simply momentary in the meanwhile.

“It’s hard for me to even think about being the host, because in a lot of ways, Bachelor Nation has changed my life in the best way possible. But at the same time, it’s really toxic. … And I don’t know if I want to subject myself to that.”

Lindsay expressed wariness in regards to the public’s notion of her taking the job: “I don’t know if I want to play into the whole line of thinking that people think I did this to get Chris Harrison’s job. It’s so wild. … How would I even think like that? But that’s the kind of stuff that people say about me. So I don’t know if that’s something that’s for me.”

Lindsay has one other concern too: The “freedom to say how I feel and to demand change and speak out, I couldn’t do that the same way if I was the host,” she stated, earlier than including, “But on the flip side, if I was, then I’d be a person in power who could say, ‘Hey, we need to do this.'”

“That’s what I keep preaching more than anything,” Lindsay defined. “More than having a host replacement, you’ve got to have somebody in power who is a person of color who gets it, who understands it.”

“Because as we’re seeing time and time again, even with the lead [of color], you’re still not getting it, because we’re seeing things happen that shouldn’t.”
