  With the exception of that one time a bisexual female contestant flirted with a woman she found attractive, ABC’s The Bachelor oozes heteronormativity. We all know the drill: conventionally attractive man is wooed by 25 nearly-identical women, chooses his favorite one and proposes to her.

The ad called for applications from any young woman “seeking fame, fortune, love or even a hookup with potential.” Now The Cut reports that the first girl has been cast, and she’s no stranger to fame (well, of the Lifetime variety).
