CONRAN SLAMS FANS ON TWITTER
On September 1, 2021, according to his "Bachelorette" bio, Conran, a landscape design, found it "disrespectful" that the public sees most Asian men as less masculine. Clearing all the doubts about his sexuality Conran tweeted:
"It is disrespectful that society effeminate Asian men and uses 'gay' as a derogatory term. Don't impose sexuality on individuals."
After his tweet, a fan insinuated that Conran's statement pointed fingers at Nick Valley, who talked about Conran's appearance in an episode of "The Viall Files." Another fan noted that people should stop making jokes about his sexuality.
However, a follower viewed Conran's statement differently and started that his tweet looked like "internalized homophobia." But quick to Conran's defense was another follower who wrote:
"How was he defensive? He said he isn't and explained why behavior like that can be harmful."
Conran's "Bachelor in Paradise" co-star, Tammy Ly, also of Asian dependant, supported him with a retweet. Tammy had once opened up about the racism she faced in Peter Weber's season of "The Bachelor" in 2020.
I’ve noticed rumors of people questioning my sexuality online and on podcasts.— Chris Conran (@chrisconran) September 1, 2021
I am not gay.
It is disrespectful that society effeminates Asian men and uses “gay” as a derogatory term. Don’t impose sexuality on individuals.
Tammy's statement showed that Asian men weren't the only people facing racism as she had received messages from trolls indicating that she should "get coronavirus" or "go back to Korea and die."
Although many couples have gotten engaged on "Bachelorette," relationships can also break off with new arrivals.
CONRAN ON "BACHELOR IN PARADISE"
Blogger Reality Steve dropped spoilers about the show, therefore fans can possibly have their answers on speculations about Jessenia Cruz and Conran's relationship. According to Steve, Conran and Jessenia's time together turned out to be short thanks to Alan Milne.
Steve confirmed that Conran got involved with Milne when she arrived. However, people believed it wasn't a serious relationship because they left the episode separately after hanging out pre-show.
And just like Cruz and Conran, fans also instigated that Milne and Conran might have known each other before "Bachelorette." However, Conran and Cruz's association before "Paradise" was cleared when Katie replied to fans' speculations.
Conran had some lasting relationships —while visiting Colorado with North Erb and Chasen Nick, the landscape designer and Nick constantly showed up on each other's Instagram. He also became friends with a former Bachelorette, Katie Thurston.
Although many couples have gotten engaged on "Bachelorette," relationships can also break off with new arrivals. It is still unclear who Conran might connect with according to the season 7 trailer.
