Bachelor in Paradise cast member Demi Burnett has come out as bisexual and will romance another woman in Mexico on Season 6 this summer, making for the franchise's first same-sex couple ever.
In an extended trailer for the upcoming season of Bachelor in Paradise that aired following The Bachelorette: The Men Tell All on Monday night, Demi -- who first appeared on Colton Underwood's The Bachelor season -- was shown making out with another woman in what appeared to be a Fantasy Suite.
"You are an absolute queen and I love you so freaking much," Caelynn tweeted in reply.
And Nicole Lopez-Alvar wrote, "I LOVE YOU SO MUCH and I am so proud of you... what an inspiration for us all. Bachelor Nation is ready."
Although Jaimi King from Season 21 of The Bachelor was the first openly bisexual contestant on the franchise, Demi's romance on Bachelor in Paradise this summer will mark the first time viewers have ever seen a same-sex couple date on the show.
The Bachelor in Paradise trailer also teased some other steamy relationships that will unfold on television starting on Monday, August 5 at 8PM ET/PT.
Blake Horstmann will apparently get involved in multiple relationships, Hannah G. will find herself torn between two men -- one of whom will be Blake -- and Dean Unglert will hit it off with Caelynn.
