Everything to know about Bachelor in Paradise contestant Greer Blitzer
When we were first introduced to Greer Blitzer, we learned that she is a confident woman who isn’t afraid to let the world know what’s on her mind. Safe to say, her outspoken nature will come in handy if she ever has to profess her love to her partner.
Without further ado, here’s what to know about Greer!
Age: 25 (April 14, 1998)
Hometown: Bellaire, Texas
Occupation: Medical sales representative
During her season of The Bachelor, Greer went home during week 7 after contracting COVID-19 while filming. Sadly, it looks like she wasn’t in that much luck after the fact, as she went home during the first week of Bachelor in Paradise.
There’s a chance that Greer may return to another installment in the Bachelor franchise. (Did someone say Bachelor in Paradise season10?!) But for now, we have to bid yet another farewell to this contestant.
Greer Blitzer apologizes for racist controversy
Unfortunately, Greer Blitzer isn’t a name that doesn’t come with a very turbulent history, as this Bachelor in Paradise contestant doesn’t exactly have the cleanest of slates.
Before she appeared on her season of The Bachelor, fans found that Greer’s Twitter had a few posts defending Blackface. Fans called for the ABC star to address the issue immediately and apologize for her mistake. And so she did at the Women Tell All reunion to hundred of thousands of viewers.
“It’s not about the intent, it’s about the impact. This acquaintance of mine that I knew performing blackface was racist.” Greer expressed. “Me defending it was racist. My ignorance was racist. And I’m just so ashamed. I’m just deeply sorry that I hurt the Black community.”
She’s got a long way to go, but fans are fortunate that she was humble enough to realize she was in the wrong and correct her mistake.
