Before “The Bachelorette” star Rachel Lindsay was set to reveal which of the three final guys won her heart, the already eliminated men gathered for a wild “Men Tell All” special.
After the suitors had competed for the love of the first African American bachelorette, they discussed a racially-tinged controversy that had happened during the season.
In next week’s finale of the ABC reality show, viewers will see Rachel choose between Peter, Bryan, and Eric.
But first, on the Monday night special, the castoff men were ready to dish!
No feud was as memorable as that between white country boy Lee and African American pro wrestler Kenny and they got into it again on the tell-all show moderated by host Chris Harrison.
Kenny said all the contestants had all agreed ahead of time to respect each other, but Lee broke the rules.
However, DeMario Jackson, who himself hit the headlines over a “Bachelor in Paradise” sex scandal (which he did NOT mention at all during the “Bachelorette” special) was confused, saying Lee was nice to him.
Off camera, controversy had erupted when disturbing tweets from Lee regarding race and gender were exposed.
Lee apologized to Kenny for their bitter battle on the show.
Kenny, whose adorable daughter joined him on the special, claimed, “I never thought it was a racist thing…” with Lee, adding, “I don’t have any ill will.”
Lee said he was disappointed in himself and had truly wanted to focus on Rachel.
