After promising to increase their diversity this season, The Bachelorette has just cut their first asian contestant —Jon, who is half Chinese and half Scottish — in the very first episode.

The show was pressured to feature a more diverse cast after pressure from the internet, and also after UnREAL announced they would feature a black actor as their bachelor.

But now, after bringing on their first asian contestant in years, they have cut the poor guy right away, not even giving him a chance.

Oh Jon, we were so rooting for you.
