Following Kaitlyn's controversial decision to have sex with one of her suitors, Nick Viall, before the socially accepted fantasy suite stage of the dating competition, Ali took to her blog to share her firsthand experience with the show -- and why fans shouldn't be so quick to judge Kaitlyn.
"So let me just dive into this topic by saying slut shaming is NOT COOL!" the season six Bachelorette star writes. "It makes me SO angry that there is such a double standard in this world when it comes to men and women having sex."
In fact, the 30-year-old reality star makes the bold claim that "95% of the Bachelors and Bachelorette[s]" have sex while filming the hit ABC franchise.
"I can assure you that Kaitlyn is NOT the first person to have sex with someone on the show," Ali says. "Sure, Kaitlyn did it before the infamous fantasy suite, but does that really matter?"
"I’ve heard Mike Fleiss (the creator of the show) say that one of the Bachelors had sex with something like 6 of his 25 women!!!" she further shared. "I’m not going to say who that Bachelor is, but people didn’t slut shame him. So stop judging Kaitlyn for following her heart annnnnnd her vagina. ;)"
Ali also defended Kaitlyn's feelings for both contestant Shawn Booth and Nick.
"So yes, she may go back and forth between the guys. She might end up sleeping with both guys. But like I said above, I ASSURE you, she is not the first Bachelorette to sleep with a guy and CERTAINLY not the first to sleep with two guys," Ali writes.
"I think if this was the other way around -- if it was The Bachelor -- I think people would've already moved past it by now," she said. "I also feel that [sleeping with a contestant] has happened in the past, but maybe it was just wasn't talked about, it was just kind of brushed over."
"[Bachelor star] Chris Soules kissed everybody!" she also exclaimed. "I'm not sure why Chris gets that 'all-American sweetheart' [title] and I'm like this horrible human being."
