Jade Roper definitely was unlike anyone that we’ve ever seen on ‘The Bachelor.’ Unfortunately, she didn’t win over Chris Soules’ heart, but that doesn’t mean the journey should be over for her!
I know what you’re all thinking. Jade Roper‘s big secret came out after hometown dates — she had posed for Playboy — and that meant she wasn’t Bachelorette material. However, I’m here to tell you the opposite. Why isn’t she right for The Bachelorette? Clearly, she wasn’t a match for Chris Soules, but even he said she shouldn’t be judged for her past.
‘Bachelorette’: Jade Roper Should Be Next
Jade, 28, is a gorgeous young woman from Nebraska who pretty much is the full package: she has a great family, she comes from a small town and she wants a family. Chris must have seen that — she was the only one to meet his parents and his sisters chose her to go on their super romantic Cinderella-like date! That has to say something.
What more does ABC want from a Bachelorette? Sure, she’s got a past: she posed for Playboy years ago. But who doesn’t have a past? I’m not saying that everyone poses nude, but let’s think about it: some of the biggest celebrities in Hollywood have done Playboy or Maxim or some sort of naked spread. From Madonna and Farrah Fawcett to Drew Barrymore and Cindy Crawford.
Jade Isn’t Breaking The Rules
I know that The Bachelor franchise is supposed to be targeted at middle America. But it was okay for Juan Pablo to have sex with a woman in the ocean; it’s okay to show multiple hook ups happening on Bachelor in Paradise; so, what’s wrong with posing for naked photos? Nothing.
“Don’t feel bad about that. I mean, you are a beautiful woman and that’s not something I feel is something that would affect our relationship in any way,” Chris said to Jade after seeing the pics. And I couldn’t have said it better myself.
When ABC searches for a Bachelorette, they look for a beautiful young woman who wants to find love and isn’t judgmental, cold, or fake. It sounds like they’re describing Jade.
