Peele was onlast night to promote “Get Out,” and he shared his excitement for ABC’s first black bachelorette, Rachel Lindsay. As he joked to Kimmel:
“This whole movie of mine is about a black guy going into an environment where there’s a lot of white people and basically getting scared. So I feel like ‘The Bachelorette’ season is going to be inspiration for ‘Get Out 2.’ You know it’s not going to be populated with a bunch of brothers. There’s still two brothers, and there’s gonna be, like, 20 white dudes and they’re all going to be saying things like, ‘Hey, you know I love Beyonce.'”
Kimmel loved that, but had a “serious” question for Peele: If there are 30 bachelors cast for Rachel, what is the “appropriate” number of African-American bachelors? Peele said it was a good question, and answered, “The representation should be equal to the representation in this country.” Kimmel replied, “So there should be three?” Peele just laughed. “Yeah, I guess that’s what I’m saying. But the next bachelor gotta be black. The next bachelor gotta be a brother!”
The audience was ready for it, although Peele was not suggesting himself. He’s already married to “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” star Chelsea Peretti and they are currently expecting their first child.
“The Bachelor” is still airing its final episodes, then Rachel will begin filming her “journey” and we’ll see it play out after “Dancing With the Stars” finishes up, with “The Bachelorette” Season 13 scheduled to premiere Monday, May 22 on ABC.
Hopefully ABC does not just cast a bunch of guys who tell Rachel they like Beyonce, but we wouldn’t be shocked. Bachelor Nation is always a cringe-fest and this season has potential to be as awkward as Nick Viall in Rachel’s church.
