I disagree. Yes, I am sure they wanted pilot Pete and his 4x in the windmill crap. Much more salacious. Rachel could have said just that...that there was a reason...and leave it at that. She didn't do that. Here is her quote:

But Lindsay says she does not believe that the reason Johnson wasn't chosen is because he is black. She says she was told there was something else behind the scenes. "I was told there was a reason. What that reason may be, I don't know," she reveals. "I wasn't given a specific answer."

"Maybe they can't specifically tell me why they didn't choose him. And I think if they could tell us, they would, because it just looks so bad that they didn't pick him," Lindsay says. "I mean, Michael Johnson was a gift. To me, it was an easy decision, but I'm not in the decision room."

"They do all kinds of background checks and vet things out. I have no idea what the reason was, but they have it. I'm told they have a reason," Lindsay repeats, "because I was definitely up in arms when I found out it wasn't going to be him."

IMO There was no need to bring up background checks. She implied that there was something unsavory in that background check and that excluded him. It was subtle, but it is there and it was unnecessary.

I mentioned on IG in a comment that although Mike was probably a nice guy there must be a reason they didn't choose him and I continued to rally around Matt James being a great candidate for next MOC lead. Someone replied ."The reason Mike wasen't picked is because he can't keep his big mouth shut" I have no idea what that means , but I do remember something like that being said after he went on that date with Demi Lovato , supposedly he was mentioning something in an interview that was either personal or just something he shouldn't have said. IDK. But maybe TPTB thought he might not be the right person who they could trust wouldn't slip with the confidentiality that the leads have to protect while making the media rounds , before , during and after the show. IDK.no idea JMO

I don’t give them an out for not picking Mike. It made me mad that they were insinuating things about him when I feel the reason was that they thought Peter was going to be another Ben Higgins. Well, that was an epic fail.  Unfortunately, Rachel believed what they told her (or didn’t tell her) and repeated it.  hmmm

They'll look even worse if they don’t choose a black male lead next season, imo. I think Matt James would be a great choice.

Did anyone watch Rachel's interview with Lauren Zima? Rachel said how disappointed she was that they haven't had a black Bachelor yet or a Bachelor of Color. Lauren replied back that they have had 2 Latino Bachelors with Juan Pablo and Peter. Rachel responded that they are White Latino men not Black. Lauren did not have a comeback to that. I love Rachel and her honesty with everyone -- even Chris Harrison's girlfriend. I think Lauren needs to step away from reporting on the Bachelor Franchise -- it has taken away her objectivity. I would be disappointed if Rachel totally stepped away from the franchise because she is needed. It would be understandable, though. JMO.

Since this is a fan thread, perhaps the GD thread would be more appropriate to discuss. I will move the post over.

I'm not concerned. I'm sure they discussed in detail the pro's and con's prior to Rachel accepting her new job. JMO's.
