Fans took to Reddit to discuss the upcoming season of The Golden Bachelorette. Several of them expresses reservations about Joan’s season after Gerry Turner and Theresa Nist’s marriage crashed and burned to quickly. The Golden Bachelor couple announced in April that they were divorcing after three months of marriage.

  • Errr, I just feel like it’ll be hard to have this show and not talk about the failure of the golden bachelor lol
  • Not sure why but I’m not nearly as excited for this as I was when I heard about the Golden Bachelor. Not being negative…..just saying the truth.
  • Rather see a new season of Paradise.

One Redditor brought Gerry Turner’s runner-up Leslie Fhima into the conversation. They wrote, “I’m more curious what Leslie thinks. Is she angry that she ruined her chances on Joey’s season by seeming too bitter?”

What Did Leslie Fhima Say?

Leslie Fhima made an appearance on Season 28 of The Bachelor to share advice with finalist Kelsey Anderson. Many fans took Leslie to task for being overly negative, though Kelsey and Joey Graziadei ultimately got engaged at the end of the season.

So, what does Leslie Fhima make of Joan Vassos as the Golden Bachelorette? She doesn’t seem to have any hard feelings. She shared a picture on her Instagram Story from the Golden Wedding that included Joan Vassos and Nancy Hulkower. “Happy for my friend,” she wrote on the photo.
