    The Bachelor has had its own form of reckoning in recent weeks amid mounting criticism about the show's lack of diversity. On Friday, ABC and the show's producers announced that 28 year-old Matt James will be its first-ever back male lead. While it'll still be some time before the show goes back into production (when it does, Clare Crawley's Bachelorette season is first at bat), ABC is continuing to fill the gap with new episodes of The Bachelor: Greatest Seasons Ever. Tonight, the series flashes back to Kaitlyn Bristowe's season of The Bachelorette, where she faced a jaw-dripping obstacle in the very first episode — and went on to one of the most emotional seasons in franchise history.
