Brooke Blurton’s Bachy season hasn’t even begun yet but it already sounds about a thousand times more interesting than last year’s mind-numbing seasons of The Bachelor and Bachelorette combined.

While The Bachelorette is still a little way off from airing, it sounds like producers have been pretty damn ruthless when it comes to recruiting contestants for the upcoming season.

According to the So Dramatic! podcast, a female who was approached by The Bachelorette casting producers told host Megan Pustetto: “I was approached to apply for a bulk round of casting for The Bachelor and Bachelorette. This is not the first time I’ve been approached either. In fact, I had to recently create a brand new Instagram account because I was sick of getting bombarded by producers — and I am in a relationship, yet they still keep asking for me,” she claimed.

The woman then alleged that “producers told me to break up with my partner and come on the show”. Hectic!

In another claim, a listener told the podcast that “one of the girls I work with was approached to be on Brooke’s season of The Bachelorette, but she is straight and married. They must have stalked her because she does some modelling and stuff in the Indian community.”

I know reality TV thrives on conflict but you’d hope that this year’s Bachelorette contestants would at the bare minimum be single and interested in dating women. Let’s pray that producers find a decent batch of available folks for Brooke to choose from.
