New Bachelorette Charity Lawson Shares Her Hopes For Season 20, But Says There's One Thing She Won't Do
Putting her foot down!
UPDATED with VIDEO.
Zach Shallcross’ season of The Bachelor hasn’t even come to an end yet, but already one of his former girlfriends is preparing for her own second chance at love. Charity Lawson, who was eliminated after her Hometown date on Season 27 of ABC’s flagship reality dating show, was named the lead of The Bachelorette Season 20 during the “Women Tell All” special that aired March 14. In anticipation of her journey, the child and family therapist from Georgia is talking about some of the things she wants from the experience, but says there’s one thing she won’t do.
Charity Lawson appeared on Good Morning America on March 16, where she talked about her upcoming journey on The Bachelorette. While she said she doesn’t have much say in where she and her suitors will get to travel, she said she’s floated some ideas about where she hopes to go. However, when it comes to the dates, it sounds like she’s putting her foot down when it comes to one potential idea. She said:
The Bachelor franchise often features some extreme dates that require the participants to overcome their fears. We’ve seen zero-gravity dates, sky-diving, bungee jumping, rock climbing, etc. At least two seasons of The Bachelor — those of Nick Viall and Ben Flajnik — featured shark dates, so it wouldn’t be out of the realm of possibility that that could come back around for Charity Lawson’s season. Hopefully the producers respect her wishes!
It’s always fun to see where the group ends up on its international travels, and after visiting locales including Budapest and London with Zach Shallcross, the new Bachelorette seems to hope her journey will take a Mediterranean turn. As for the kind of man she hopes to share these experiences with, Charity Lawson divulged:
Charity Lawson has been well-liked this season — by both her fellow castmates and the viewers at home — and many in Bachelor Nation were excited when she was announced as the leading lady of The Bachelorette Season 20. See how Jesse Palmer delivered the good news during Tuesday night’s episode of The Bachelor:
We’ll be looking forward to The Bachelorette this summer, but first we’ve got Zach Shallcross’ journey to finish. The Bachelor returns at 8 p.m. ET Monday, March 20, on ABC with Fantasy Suite dates, or “sex week,” as we’re apparently calling it this season.
