Fox News’ The Five co-host Bob Beckel made some pretty sexist remarks about The Bachelorette Andi Dorfman on Tuesday.
During the live broadcast, Beckel called Dorman a “sl*t” after it was revealed on After the Final Rose that Dorfman had sex with runner-up Nick Viall in the Fantasy Suite before choosing Josh Murray as her future husband, according to the New York Daily News.
During the After the Final Rose special, Viall said, “If you weren’t in love with me, I’m not sure why, like, why you made love with me.” This was the first time the recurrent elephant in the room — sex in the Fantasy Suite — was openly addressed on the show.
Beckel sure didn’t hold back his feelings about Dorfman’s choice to spend the night in the Fantasy Suite with both Viall and Murray (something most contestants do anyway).
“She’s a sl*t!” Beckel said on The Five. “I’m not kidding. She sleeps with someone else, and then doesn’t tell the guy about it. This is what America’s come to, this crap.”
Fellow co-host and Bachelorette fan Andrea Tantaros shot back at Beckel. “Are you kidding me right now? Excuse me, Bob! You probably sleep with a different woman every night,” she said, reports Us Weekly.
However, co-host Greg Gutfeld, agreed with Beckel. "You're on a reality show where you're making out with guys every day," Gutfeld said. "And now all the sudden he says something honest and you go, ‘Oh, wow, you just stepped over.' Nothing is private when you do a reality show."
At the end of Tuesday’s show, Beckel somewhat apologized for his sexist comment.
“I want to apologize for a word I used in that Bachelorette segment, that woman who slept with two guys," he said. "Well, maybe it was more than two, I don't know."
