The Bachelorette 2022 spoilers – Fans slam series as Gabby Windey and Rachel Recchia 'objectify' bachelors in episode 2 | The Sun

THE BACHELORETTE is back tonight with another all-new episode, and a preview has fans slamming the show for "objectifying" the bachelors early in the season.

Bachelor alumni Gabby Windey, 31, and Rachel Recchia, 26, are both starring in this season of The Bachelorette for the first time in the show's history, with two Bachelorettes co-leading the entire season.

In a preview for the episode airing on July 18, the bachelors are asked to strip down and show off in Speedos, and some fans on Twitter are not happy with the move.

"Not the Show Everyone Your Body Against Your Will date. It’s a little early in the season to do side-by-side body comparisons isn’t it? They don’t even know their names yet," one person tweeted.

"'Cause it's okay to objectify them because they're men," another wrote with a sad emoji.

The Bachelorette airs Mondays at 8pm ET on ABC.
