Let’s tell the truth about The Bachelor. It’s a show based on superficial relationships. Why would you ever expect that the host would be a deep thinker?

Behar went on to comment she didn't believe in the show due to how short the courtship was and doubted the relationships lasted. Later, McCain slammed the show for its lack of diversity with race and physical appearance, size-wise. McCain stated:

I don’t love The Bachelor. I apologize to our parent company, ABC. I mean no disrespect to the work that’s done on this network, but it’s an extremely problematic show. I think the fact that there’s never any Asian people, there are never any Black people, there’s not a lot of Hispanic people. If you want to talk about body positivity, there’s very rarely — I think there was one contestant, one time, who was over a size zero.
