ABC’s Bachelor and Bachelorette franchises have been in the headlines quite a bit as of late as the woke mob had decided to infiltrate one of reality TV’s earliest shows, turning what’s already a dumpster fire of drama and adding a side of wokeism.

But on Monday’s Bachelorette, conservatives achieved a small victory when contestant Mike Planeta revealed his virginity during a group date that challenged each guy to be “sex-positive” in a skit meant to woo lead Katie Thurston and, despite Thurston’s outspokenness on sex, gave him first place for the date.

Planeta and nine other guys were selected for the first group date of the season and quickly learned that their event would be NSFW and personal as podcast host and sex expert Heather McDonald informed them that she would help “sex-positive” Thurston determine who was “the greatest lover of all time.”

As for how, McDonald would have each guy give “a presentation” where things like bondage and sex toys would be up for usage.

Planeta revealed in a cutaway that he “had a feeling that that was the direction it was gonna go” and “if we’re talking about sex, I personally want to share that within marriage.”

After two trivia questions on female anatomy, McDonald upped the ante by asking “what is your go-to sex position” and “when was the last time you had sex.”

For both questions, Planeta wrote a question mark on his whiteboard “because I want [Katie to hear it from my lips first.”

With the guys off devising their skits, Planeta began crying in another cutaway as he explained that even though he has “no problem” with his decision, he’s “more worried about showing her how much it means to me and…how much, like, I thought about her throughout this whole process.”

“[T]his is not something I take lightly….I won’t compromise that, so I think the most devastating thing that can happen out of this is if Katie didn’t hear my heart and didn’t understand where I was coming from,” he added.

Before his turn, Planeta admitted that while he was worried Thurston could send him home, he knew the right call was to “look her dead in the face and be like, I’m gonna show a side of me that, in my opinion, I think is what love should be.”

Inviting Thurston on-stage to sit with him on the end of a bed, he began reading from a notebook a letter “to my future wife”

MIKE: I want to share where my heart’s at, okay?


MIKE: To my future wife, I’ve always wondered what you would be like. Would you be sweet? Would you be tender? Or would you be full of fire and passion? I think it’s that one. [THURSTON LAUGHS] Would you be funny, or would you be shy? We know you’re funny And last, what kind of mother would you be? I’ve always wanted you to feel so loved and honored and the best way for me to show you this is by saving myself for you. Love is hard. Sometimes figuratively, sometimes literally. But I want you to know is that I would wait another 31 years to have sex if it is what proved to you that I would sacrifice everything for you to feel loved and secure and that is why I would be the greatest lover for you.

THURSTON: Oh, that’s so beautiful! Oh, my God.


THURSTON: Thank you so much.

MIKE: Yeah.

In her own cutaway, Thurston herself began to cry as she felt so moved by the fact that Planeta would sign onto the show and date her given the fact that their views on sexual activity were diametrically opposite:

Oh, my God. Mike acknowledged that he knows exactly who I am. Like, I’m gonna get emotional just talking about it. For him to choose to be here for me, knowing who I am, how I am, that’s probably what, like, hit me the most.

Once the guys all finished, McDonald announced Planeta as the winner and invited him on stage to hug Thurston and receive a rather large trophy.

In a post-date cutaway, he let loose a big exhale before saying it “was wild,” adding that “[i]n a sex-positive kind of event like that, I don’t think anyone thought the virgin was gonna come out on top, but I just think that shows that intimacy comes in so many different forms. I’m pretty happy.”
