We are three episodes and two ambulances into this summer’s season of The Bachelorette and one of the frontrunners is a convicted sex offender. Another was recently outed for posting hateful tweets of some sort within the first week, but that is a whole nuther talk show.
Becca, who you may recall was given the final rose on the last season of The Bachelor until Arie decided he’d made a mistake and dumped her for the first runner-up, is the bachelorette in this season. Becca has kept nearly all of the black suitors. While she seems close to some of the white suitors as well and is kissing all of them at every opportunity, she seem particularly attracted to Lincoln. Well, that could be a problem.
News just broke that Lincoln was arrested in 2016 for indecent assault and battery that occurred on a cruise ship. The charge seemed to be that he was drunk and came on strong to some disinterested woman on the ship. He groped her breast and grinded on her and put her hands on his chest. If I am being honest this sounds like a drunk guy asking someone to dance in an aggressive manner. It’s something a good swift knee to the groin could handle if one so inclined. Instead he was arrested.
He was sentenced on May 21 a week before the show began broadcasting but after filming was over.
He was sentenced to a year in jail. The judge then suspended the sentence and offered a two-year probation. He also has to attend three AA meetings a week for those two years and register as a sex offender. Either he had a horrible attorney or the registering as a sex offender part is incorrect. That seems a bit much to me.
So, currently, Becca is engaged to the love of her life after struggling over who to choose of the TWO men she was in love with by the end of filming. That was the exact same situation Arie got hammered for all over the Internet.
Here is the thing, Becca’s celebrity crush is Michael Strahan. She seems to have a type. Lincoln has a bit of an accent. He seems very into to her. She seems very into him. On the last episode he cheated at a game the guys were playing to win time with her. She is attracted to a few of the guys at this early stage in the game. Lincoln is starting to get a bit of a bad edit. I’ll just have to wait and see.
I do not normally post about pretaped competition shows because I DO NOT WANT TO BE SPOILED. I DON’T WANT TO KNOW ABOUT ANYTHING THAT HAS NOT HAPPENED YET. THERE ARE SITES THAT KNOW WHO THE WINNER IS ALREADY. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE NOT SPOILERS IN COMMENTS. SPOILERS WILL GET YOU AN AUTOMATIC BAN.
The Bachelorette has issued a statement.
“No one on the ‘Bachelorette’ production had any knowledge about the incident or charges when Lincoln Adim was cast, and he himself denied ever having engaged in or been charged with any sexual misconduct. We employ a well- respected and highly experienced third party who has done thousands of background checks consistent with industry standards to do a nationwide background check in this case. The report we received did not reference any incident or charge relating to the recent conviction – or any other charges relating to sexual misconduct. We are currently investigating why the report did not contain this information.”
The only thing that will make this worse is if she picked him.
