In his podcast, The Most Dramatic Podcast Ever, Harrison addressed the controversy that led to his departure from The Bachelor franchise.

Harrison stepped down as the host of the popular franchise in June 2021 after defending contestant Rachael Kirkconnell, who attended a pre-war plantation-themed sorority while in college Interview with Lindsay for Extra.

Responding to Harrison’s Higher Learning podcast last week, Lindsay told fans she received “attacks” on social media after Harrison’s podcast was released.

“It brought up all the attacks I’ve had before when this happened almost two years ago,” Lindsay said, referencing her original interview with Harrison in 2021.

“A lot of the social media attacks and the [direct messages] started again,” she continued.

Rachel says Chris’ podcast is ‘for his fans’

On Friday’s episode of “Higher Learning,” Lindsay addressed “Bachelor” fans who didn’t like how Harrison handled the controversy on his podcast.

“He starts with the first episode where he talks about who this podcast is for,” Lindsay told listeners. “It’s for the people who supported him. It’s for his fans.”

Lindsay said she didn’t expect Harrison to mention her name or address the past.

“This podcast is for his fans,” she said.

“People expected me to get angry [about the podcast],” she continued. “If you think I’m sitting around waiting for something from Chris Harrison, you really don’t know me.”

Lindsay calls ‘The Bachelor’ franchise ‘a fantasy’

On Friday’s episode, Lindsay also reflected on her experiences with The Bachelor franchise, calling the show “a fantasy.”

“The show was never intended to have those kinds of conversations,” she told listeners.

“The show was built for a specific audience,” she continued. “People of color didn’t make it past the first few weeks. They didn’t have them as clues. They didn’t have those real conversations. It was a fantasy world.”
