Although Bachelor Juan Pablo Galavis said gays shouldn't be allowed on the reality dating show, former Bachelorette star Trista Sutter hopes for more equality and is looking forward to a gay version of the hit ABC show in the future.
"Everyone deserves love. No matter your race, gender, sexual preference, to me, the show is about love and finding love. I'm up for anything," the 41-year-old beauty told RadarOnline.com exclusively while promoting her partnership with Viva Vantage paper towels.
When asked if he thought there should be a season of The Bachelor featuring a gay or bisexual man, the former soccer pro said, "I don't think it is a good example for kids to watch that on TV."
Calling gay people "more pervert in a sense," the Venezuelan father of a four-year-old daughter tried to explain himself.
"Obviously people have their husband and wife and kids and that is how we are brought up. Now there is fathers having kids and all that, and it is hard for me to understand that too in the sense of a household having peoples… Two parents sleeping in the same bed and the kid going into bed… It is confusing in a sense. But I respect them because they want to have kids. They want to be parents. So it is a scale… Where do you put it on the scale? Where is the thin line to cross or not? You have to respect everybody's desires and way of living. But it would be too hard for TV."
