“It’s hard for me to even think about.”
“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.”
