The Bachelor’s LaNease Adams on Racism, Defending Chris Harrison and Her Message for Matt James
LaNease Adams is an icon in one of THE most iconic franchises in television history: The Bachelor. She was among the final eight women in the first ever season with Alex Michel in 2002, and landed the series’ first kiss. But her journey wasn’t easy.
After the show aired, she faced racist backlash online for being in an interracial relationship, leading her to suffer panic attacks and substance abuse before landing in the hospital. LaNease then began therapy and went on a self-love journey, and now she’s using her story to help others.
LaNease joined Ten Minute Talks to share her journey on the show, what she makes of Matt James’ season as the first Black Bachelor, her response to Chris Harrison and more.
