With Sam Wood choosing Snezana as his partner, “The Bachelor Australia” season has ended. Now it’s time to welcome Sam Frost in the hot seat with 14 men vying for attention. The blonde beauty has been quite open about her experience and feelings, and this time she has spoken about the racism controversy that surrounds “The Bachelorette Australia.”


Sam Frost, “The Bachelorette,” said she is shocked and disappointed regarding claims that the reality show is racist. All 14 men in the show are white and thus, the question of racism has come into picture. Last week, the picture of 14 men up for competition was revealed by Network Ten and that started the controversy.

Some news media pointed out that the show lacks cultural diversity. Sam’s response? “It’s a bit disappointing it’s even an issue in the first place,” adding, “Say for example, there was an African American guy in there, then of course people would say, ‘the token black guy’ or ‘the token Asian’.”

Sam Frost mentioned, “I don’t think you can win in these situations and I certainly don’t think they’re racist whatsoever.” She mentioned that the guys in the show are all different, and there is no point on steaming up the issue of cultural diversity for such a show. She mentioned, “It’s actually quite a shock to all of us actually. The guys are diverse, they’re so different, it’s ridiculous. I don’t think race ever came into it.”

The girl at the center of attention has mentioned in a radio interview that she will prefer substance over performance in the bedroom when it comes to choosing the man of her life. The 26-year-old bachelorette said she knows what she is exactly looking for and she is prepared to give life a second chance.
