“Honestly, I can’t even go there,” she began, noting that Harrison’s departure from the series is only temporary for the time being.

“It’s hard for me to even think about being a guest, because in so many ways, Bachelor Nation has changed my life in the best way possible. But at the same time, it’s terribly toxic. … And no I don’t know if I want to put myself in control of that. “

Lindsay strongly expressed public opinion that she took the job: “I don’t know if I want to play into the whole line of thinking that people think that I did this to get Chris Harrison ‘s work … It’ s so wild … How could I even think that way? But that’s the kind of stuff people say about me, so I don’t know if it’s that’s something for me. “

Lindsay also has other concerns: The “freedom to say how I feel and to want to change and to speak out, I couldn’t do it the same way if I were as a guest, “she said, before adding,” But on the flip side, if I were, I would be a man with power who could say, ‘Hey, we have to do this. ‘”

“That’s what keeps me preaching more than anything,” Lindsay explained. he understands. “

“Because as we see again and again, even with the guidance [of color], you still do not get it, because we are seeing things happen that it should not. “
