‘Bachelor In Paradise’: Tanner Tolbert BLASTS The Show- ‘This S—t’s Turning Into A Circus’
Chris decided to walk away after securing a huge payout, which meant he no longer saw himself returning, after being demonised following the Rachael Kirkconnell scandal. Although the producers have acted quickly in order to line up some replacements, the most notable one being David Spade, that has not gone down well with Tanner.
And he made sure that everybody knew just how disgruntled he was feeling. In a post to his fans on Instagram, he blasted the show. He said: “I know my opinion doesn’t really matter … but this s—t’s turning into a circus. I think the Bachelor franchise needs to figure their s—t out and figure it out quick.” Tanner seems to be echoing the concerns of a significant majority.
Many fans have been vocal about how they will no longer be watching the show following the confirmation of Chris’ departure. This has left the franchise in a very difficult position. First of all, Chris has already admitted that he is going to be moving on to other projects. Therefore, they have lost a host with over a decades worth of experience who knew the ins and outs of the show.
And with the viewing figures having fallen, in comparison to when Chris was hosting, there is a real danger that the show could be entering its last chapter. Tanner added: “I think the show is on a slippery slope right now, and as a fan of the show first and foremost, I want to see it keep going. But I think all this host drama is just starting to get ridiculous.”
Tanner also threw shade at David’s approach to the show. The latter is a comedian, but his lighthearted approach is not going down well. On a show where people are risking everything in order to find someone to settle down with, the last thing they need is some laughter. Time will tell whether the Bachelor franchise will survive, but on current reading, it does not look good.
