Fresh Graduate Clayton Sparks Debate — And Memes

A new season of Bachelor premieres Monday, and with it a new contestant, Clayton Echard. He’s not exactly a fan favorite: Like Ringer pointed out, “Clayton seems to have been cast in part because he’s ready to act after being eliminated early in the season that ended two weeks ago. Bachelorette. ”

Therefore, there has been some debate about the fact that Bachelorette The runners-up were mostly men of color, and Echard was chosen instead, continuing a very homogenous tradition. Matt James was the first black man Bachelor contestants in 2021 and the season highlighted the show’s theme structure problem with race.

As Dan Emerson wrote on Monday, the problem isn’t another of Echard’s handsome white men: “The problem is that ABC has overtaken too many fan-favorite men of color and who has been really going… and instead picking 8th place the guy we don’t know or care about just so they can have another bland white man. ”

There’s also the fact that Echard looks uncanny like new host Jesse Palmer, and has briefly played ball, much like former Bachelor Colton Underwood.

When Echard was announced last month, viewers supported some Bachelorette fan favorites they think deserve to turn to Bachelor.

While the anticipation surrounding this season seems warm, there are at least the memes.

The season premiere made a difference: Contestant Claire quick review Echard and claimed that he smoked the first night.
