Kate Issues an Apology for Making ‘Classist’ Comments on Logan Palmer – Read

Kate Gallivan was the Bachelor in Paradise season 8 villain that we didn’t see coming!

She became one of the most hated contestants as soon as she arrived on the beach.

The Bachelor fans went as far as to accuse Kate of being an abuser to Logan on Bachelor in Paradise this season.

After the reunion episode of BIP, Kate took to Instagram to address the issue and apologize for the ‘classist’ comments she made about Logan Palmer.

Here’s what she wrote:

“In light of the reunion tonight, I want to speak directly to you all,” she wrote on her Instagram Story. “I deeply apologize for the classist things that I said on BiP this season. I was shocked when I saw the show myself, and I cringed just as much as you guys did watching it. If I could take it back, I would.”

She even made a direct apology to Logan Palmer.

“I’ve apologized to Logan, but want to extend that apology to anyone who may have been offended by these comments. I have nothing but respect for Logan and the rest of the cast, and I’m still so grateful to have gone on this adventure with them #bachelorinparadise”

Kate received a lot of backlash from the fans during season 8 of Paradise after she expressed concerns about Logan’s ability to afford the type of lifestyle she’s used to. For saying he wasn’t in the financial position to date her, noting that he couldn’t afford a membership at an Equinox gym, drives a Honda, has roommates and works as a dog walker.

During the reunion episode, Logan told Kate and the audience why he became a dog walker in the first place.  

“I wanted to have a career in film, and for a while I was a scuba instructor,” he said. “I walked dogs to get by, I did whatever I could for a whole year. And I ended up building an amazing career using a camera. I’m so proud of that and it’s something that took a long time.. and she made fun of me for it.”

Kate called her words “out of pocket,” telling Logan, “I hate that you had to hear that. When I was vocalizing those concerns, it was to my girlfriends in private.”
