As you probably know, on last night's Bachelor finale, Matt James ended up leaving the show not engaged, but rather in a relationship with contestant Rachael Kirkconnell.
Not long after filming wrapped, photos from 2018 surfaced of Rachael at a racially insensitive antebellum-themed party. Rachael immediately faced backlash for this, and the situation even cost Chris Harrison his hosting gig after he defended her in an interview with Rachel Lindsay.
Who would replace Harrison on After the Final Rose was a hot topic for a minute, and ultimately, ABC chose to go with Emmanuel Acho, who is a former NFL linebacker, talk show host, and author of Uncomfortable Conversations with a Black Man.
