The upcoming season of "The Bachelorette" is set to be the most diverse in the history of the very popular ABC reality dating show with Rachel Lindsay becoming the first black woman to be cast as the bachelorette. But the 13th season of "The Bachelorette" may already be marred with controversy before it even starts.

Earlier this week, the network released the identities and bios of the more than 30 suitors vying for Lindsay's love. But it didn't take long for the Internet to call out one contestant who made transphobic comments in his bio, Elite Daily reports.

In the ABC bios, suitors are asked lame and silly questions so fans can get to know them better. Bryce, a 30-year-old firefighter from Orlando, Fla., was asked: "What is the most outrageous thing you have ever done?"

He responded: "High speed pursuit on a motorcycle. Saved someone's life. Outrageous is relative."

Wow! What a hero and a cool dude!

He was also asked: "What is your greatest achievement to date?

He said: "Making my parents proud and inspiring my little brother."

Aww! He sounds like a great guy!

In another question, Bryce was asked: "What's your biggest date fear?"

His response?

"The chick is actually a dude."

Yikes.

It didn't take long for social media users to latch on to Bryce's comment and call him out on Twitter.
