TV DIVAGAL Bachelor Recap: Sean’s Dated A Black Girl!By Delaina Dixon | January 15, 2013 | Entertainment
TV DivaGal was excited to see four black contestants on Sean Lowe‘s season of The Bachelor during last week’s premiere, along with a whole other host of women of color. But I had to ask myself the question: Is Sean just going through the motions of keeping a “token” black girl around (or three!) ΓÇô given that the series has gotten some flack for its lack of diversity?
Obviously, contestant Robyn had the same question. With some trepidation, she actually asked Sean, flat out, if he is attracted to ΓÇª well black girls.
Sean replied that he loved this question, as he feels people look at him and think he only goes for white girls who are blond. He then explained that he just wants a girl who is nice and sweet, intelligent and funny (awww), and physically, it didn’t matter, since he’s dated every type of gal: Hispanic and Persian, and his last girlfriend was black! (We assume that pretty was still a prerequisite!)
Kudos to The Bachelor for finally going there and revealing that Sean has dated girls of every hue. Sean is searching for love, and he’s searching with his heart, which knows no color boundaries. Will Sean wind up with Robyn or Leslie H.? Probably not. But it’s nice to know that one of these lovely ladies could wind up the series’ first black Bachelorette. Now that’s one season TV DivaGal would love!
The Bachelor airs Mondays at 8 p.m. on ABC.
