It’s Election Day within the United States and which means across the clock information protection that leaves little room for the standard Tuesday evening TV schedule. Unfortunately for Bachelor Nation, which means season 16 of The Bachelorette will not be airing its fourth episode till Thursday.
The Bachelorette is not the one show that is shuffling its run due to election protection. Over on NBC, The Voice will air its subsequent new episode on Monday, Nov. 9 and This Is Us will take the week off and return on Tuesday, Nov. 10.
If you are searching for one thing to distract from the election information cycle this night, Netflix and Hulu are in all probability your finest wager. The main broadcast networks — ABC, CBS, FOX, and NBC — will all be airing election specials till effectively after midnight.
Many Bachelor Alums Have Been Vocal About Politics Leading Up to the Election
Many of essentially the most distinguished faces on the present season of The Bachelorette have gone to social media to encourage their followers to vote. The show’s lead (for now) Clare Crawley put a video of her carrying an “I voted” sticker on her Instagram story and the show’s subsequent lead, Tayshia Adams, posted a video of her dropping her poll off at a dropbox.
“I’m so proud to have the privilege to Vote,” Adams wrote within the caption, partly. “I would like change, I would like equal human rights, I need to enhance the way forward for this nation for my future kids, and since I’ve a proper to make an influence and so do you.”
Other Bachelor alumni had been extra partisan of their social media messages. Bekah Martinez from season 22 of The Bachelor defined on Instagram precisely why she voted for Joe Biden.

We did not vote for Trump. Although Biden/Harris are far from perfect, I simply have more confidence in their leadership than that of the current administration. I am not here to demean or mock anyone who is voting otherwise, but I will offer a few (definitely not all) tangible reasons why you might not want to keep Donald Trump in office: •The Trump administration is responsible for separating children from their parents at the border, which has resulted in 545 CHILDREN SOMEHOW BECOMING LOST IN THE SYSTEM. **THESE HUNDREDS OF CHILDREN ARE STILL MISSING AND WERE NEVER REUNITED WITH THEIR PARENTS.** •Trump has taken responsibility for the country’s economic stability (pre-pandemic) despite the fact that much of growth began during the Obama administration. Now, due to Trump’s disastrous mishandling of the pandemic, we are facing ONE OF THE WORST ECONOMIC CRISES IN U.S. HISTORY. •If you consider yourself “fiscally conservative”, you should know that spending has increased by $800 billion during Trump’s presidency, and he has signed into law over $2.1 trillion in ten-year discretionary spending increases. •Trump does not support the military. He famously mocked POW John McCain, called fallen marines “losers” and “suckers”, and has failed to confront his dear friend Putin or respond to the fact that Russia has paid bounties to Taliban-linked Afghan militants to kill US troops. •Trump has deeply tarnished America’s global image for a number of reasons…from his mishandling of COVID-19 to pulling out of the Paris climate accord to his withdrawal of troops in the middle east leading to a humanitarian crisis. •He has worked to repeal Affordable Care Act with no actual strategy for a healthcare replacement plan, which means people with pre-existing medical conditions could be denied healthcare and insurers could charge women higher rates. •Trump labeled neo-Nazi rally attendees as “very fine people”. (Their actions resulted in the death of a woman protesting the white supremacist rally.) This is just one of the most extreme examples of his tendency to be an alt-right sympathizer as he propagates racist, harmful and hateful ideas through his platform.
“Although Biden/Harris are removed from good, I merely have extra confidence of their management than that of the present administration,” Martinez wrote.
James Taylor, a fan favourite on season 12 of The Bachelorette, is among the many minority of former contestants on the show who has vocally supported Donald Trump.
In some instances, these variations have created some stress. In the finale of season 14 of The Bachelorette, Becca Kufrin obtained engaged to Garrett Yrigoyen. That pair has since cut up and so they’ve expressed opposing political opinions on social media. Kufrin has posted about her support for Biden, whereas Yrigoyen has revealed himself to have much more conservative beliefs.
Bachelorette Host Chris Harrison Has Stayed Mum About the Election
Harrison, 49, is a registered Republican, according to the podcast, Date Card. But that required a little bit of investigative work as a result of The Bachelor and The Bachelorette host hasn’t given any hints over time.
Date Card additionally discovered that Harrison endorsed Greg Laird, a Democrat working for a seat within the Oklahoma House of Representatives.
While producers of The Bachelorette have been vocal about their political views, do not count on to listen to something from Harrison.
