The contestants for ABC's upcoming season of "The Bachelorette" were revealed Wednesday, and hidden between the guy who calls himself "the tickle monster" and another who used Tabasco in the bedroom, was a guy who made a comment the internet is now calling out as transphobic.
30-year-old Bryce, a firefighter from Orlando, listed on his "Bachelorette" bio that his worst fear on a first date would be, "The chick is actually a dude."
Bryce's comment is clearly not appropriate, and uproar from people who actually took the time to read all "The Bachelorette" bios (guilty) has set Twitter ablaze.
The internet reacted soon after the release, and Bryce's quote even caught attention from one "RuPaul's Drag Race" winner and a trans actress who appeared on Caitlyn Jenner's show "I Am Cait."

Bryce is scared of his dick getting confused by an attractive trans woman bc he's not secure enough to know it doesn't mean he's gay https://t.co/fRuMZIPrh3— tea lizard (@maIeficent) May 19, 2017
