Demi Burnett, the self-declared Queer Queen of the show kisses a mystery woman and then declares her love for her on 'Bachelor in Paradise'
'The Bachelor' franchise is about to make history and you're not going to want to miss it. Recently when 'The Bachelorette' season 15 aired with its 'Men Tell All' episode, the series revealed a preview of the forthcoming season six of 'Bachelor in Paradise'. While we can see a lot of making out happening on the exotic island, we also witness Demi Burnett — a former 'The Bachelor' contestant who appeared on season 23, vying for Colton Underwood's heart — kiss a mystery woman and then declare her love for her.
This is reportedly the first same-sex couple that has been revealed on the highly dramatic reality TV series. After the preview, host Chris Harrison dared to say that this might be the most dramatic season of 'Bachelor in Paradise' yet.
Post the preview release, Burnett decided to make hay while the sun shines. She took to Twitter and tweeted saying, "Spoiler alert: I'm a queer queen," and she was swamped with support from friends from 'The Bachelor' franchise.

"And we all, bow down. Love you always and forever," the current Bachelorette Hannah Brown tweeted to her best friend after Burnett put out that tweet. Following ensuite was former 'The Bachelor' season 23 contestant Caelynn Miller Keyes, who said, “You are an absolute queen and I love you so freaking much."
Elyse Dehlbom also tweeted to Burnett saying, "Spoiler alert… we love you, no matter who you love. Because love… is LOVE!!! Proud of you and proud of your truth and the courage to share that with the world!! And this Cougar will come at anyone who doesn’t show you graciousness for your bravery!!”
Apart from being flooded with love and support from her fellow 'The Bachelor' season 23 alumna was also showered with love from most fans. "I always knew I stanned you, and this just solidified your place in my heart. Love you, queer icon," wrote a fan on Twitter.
Another added saying, "Thank you for giving representation to such an amazing group of people on a show that I never thought would give us that representation. I am so proud of you for putting yourself out there and being true to yourself!! We Stan!!!"
"Thank you for your bravery and putting yourself out there and bringing queer representation to #bachelornation this means so much to me we Stan so hard," wrote another fan.
Though Burnett was supported by most of her fans, there were a few haters as usual who portrayed their disgust to the 'Bachelor in Paradise' contestant. But Burnett being the "Queer Queen" she is, slapped back at haters and let them have it.
"This is the first season I WILL NOT watch BIP due to the same-sex disgusting behavior on screen. I have nothing against their choice of lifestyle but I don’t like to have it shoved down my throat on TV. you ruined your show for me and 300 others," tweeted a fan. Burnett replied, "The moment you described the relationship as disgusting is the moment you claimed yourself as homophobic."
Another fan of 'The Bachelor' franchise, took to Instagram and DM'd Burnett shaming her for coming out as queer. But that didn't stop Burnett, she uploaded a screenshot of the text and let Twitter handle it.
Right enough, Burnett was flooded with support from her friends. Retweeting Burnett's post on being shamed, Kaitlyn Bristowe, 'The Bachelorette' season 11, said, "This makes me sick to my stomach. I hate bringing attention to this, but I love that we can all stand up against it. I’m proud of you Demi. And I’m proud of the show for evolving."
While Burnett shuns away her haters, we can't wait to see who her mystery woman is when 'Bachelor in Paradise' premieres. 'Bachelor in Paradise' premieres on August 5 only on ABC. Check your local listings for more information.
