Tanner Tolbert is very concerned, you guys.
The former Bachelorette suitor has been paying attention to all the controversies surrounding this franchise of late and he’s here to rant about them.
That’s the word Tolbert himself just used on his Instagram Story.
It’s time, he believes, for a much-needed rant.

Harrison has been replaced on the brand new Bachelorette season by Tayshia Adams and Kaitlyn Bristowe.
“I’ve had a truly incredible run as host of The Bachelor franchise and now I’m excited to start a new chapter,” he wrote on Tuesday afternoon via Instagram.
“I’m so grateful to Bachelor Nation for all of the memories we’ve made together.
“While my two-decade journey is wrapping up, the friendships I’ve made will last a lifetime.”
According to various reports, Harrison walks away with over $25 million in a negotiated settlement and will also sign a non-disclosure agreement.
But Tolbert has nothing negative to say about Adams and Bristowe, who made their debut this past Monday opposite lead Katie Thurston.
Instead, he sounds appalled over ABC’s decision to anoint David Spade, Tituss Burgess, Lance Bass and Lil Jon as guest hosts of Bachelor in Paradise this summer.
