The Bachelor franchise is infamous for its lack of diversity — there's only been one person of color as the lead in its 17 years on air.
Despite its abysmal inclusivity attempts, the upcoming season of the spinoff series Bachelor In Paradise will finally feature its first openly queer relationship thanks to Demi Burnett. Although during The Bachelor Australia two contestants left the show and found love with each other in quite possibly the sweetest love story to exist within the franchise.
During the Women Tell All episode of Hannah Brown's season of The Bachelorette, a trailer for the upcoming sixth BIP season showed Burnett kissing a blonde mystery woman and proclaiming her love for her. But it wouldn't be Paradise without a love triangle, and she was later seen kissing past contestant Derek Peth.
After the trailer aired, Burnett came out as queer on Twitter and was supported by her fellow Bachelor contestants and many fans. Unfortunately, though, she also received some hate for being true to herself.
