As of Monday night, Becca Kufrin will have picked her final suitor on The Bachelorette. He will either be Blake Horstmann, a Coloradan with a soft side, or Garrett Yrigoyen, a Reno, Nevada, native who has been compared to a puppy. Onscreen, they are equally appealing: Horstmann brought an ox to meet Kufrin in the first episode, and Yrigoyen does a great Chris Farley impression. Public perception of the candidates is different, though. Yrigoyen faced scandal in early June when Ashley Spivey, a former Bachelor contestant, disseminated a series of screengrabs proving that his Instagram account had “liked” several memes with offensive rhetoric. One meme equated feminism with being fat and ugly. Another suggested that boys in 2018 were too “girly.” Yet another suggested that David Hogg, a survivor of the Parkland massacre, was a crisis actor. At best, the “likes” looked like evidence of a sick sense of humour. At worst, they demonstrated that Yrigoyen shares views with alt-right pundits like Alex Jones, who did, in fact, accuse Hogg of being a crisis actor.
