Rachel, as the only Black lead in 40 seasons, has an absolute reason to speak her mind. She is literally the only person with that experience and point of view. The Bachelor producers have no one else to speak to these because they only have ONE person to do so. That’s on them. Other leads can speak up and out and many of them are rightfully doing so as well.
Marquel reposted a blog post that he wrote in 2014 in which he expressed how that although he was happy for Chris Soules to be picked as Bachelor, he felt that he was passed up due to his race. 6 years later and Peter over Mike Johnson, one would have to think that he had and has a point which is why he reposted and expanded on it on Instagram. Because it is a very accurate observation.
Wells Adams was on JoJo season. She has also signed the petition and spoken out against the lack of diversity.
