‘Bachelor In Paradise’ Contestant Demi Burnett Will Present Series’ First Same-Sex Relationship Presented
The Bachelor franchise is about to make history with the first same-sex relationship.
Bachelor in Paradise posted a preview this week showing contestant Demi Burnett kissing a mystery woman on a bed.
The preview constitutes the first same-sex relationship presented on the reality TV show.
Burnett tweeted the following after the trailer aired: “Spoiler alert: I’m a queer queen.”

While Burnett may be seen with another girl, she is seen later in the trailer kissing Derek Peth in a jacuzzi.
Burnett is not the first LGBTQ contestant on the show, however. Jaimi King was the first openly bisexual contestant to appear on Bachelor in Paradise in 2017, but there were no other LGBTQ contestants or encounters that season.
The show premieres on August 5 on ABC.
