After a new trailer for the upcoming sixth season of the summer spinoff teased a romance between Burnett and another woman, the Bachelor alumna tweeted a message to her fans: “Spoiler alert: I’m a queer queen.”

And she was flooded with support from her fellow franchise stars.
“You are an absolute queen and I love you so freaking much,” tweeted her Bachelor in Paradise costar Caelynn Miller-Keyes.
“Spoiler alert… we love you, no matter who you love. Because love… is LOVE!!!” added fellow Bachelor alumna Elyse Dehlbom. “Proud of you and proud of your truth and the courage to share that with the world!! And this Cougar will come at anyone who doesn’t show you graciousness for your bravery!!”

In the trailer, which aired after Monday’s Men Tell All episode of The Bachelorette, Burnett, 24, proclaims her love for a mystery woman.
“I don’t care who sees this,” she says as footage rolls of her climbing on top of the girl in bed and kissing her. “I know that I love this girl. I’m just so happy that I found her, and I can definitely picture being with her for the rest of my life.”
But she’s conflicted about her feelings, as evidenced by a steamy make-out session with Derek Peth in the hot tub.
“Last night, Demi and I had a really fun time in the hot tub,” he says. “That’s not something I should have to hide.”
“I just don’t want to lose you,” Burnett tearfully tells the woman.
ABC’s two-night season premiere of Bachelor in Paradise airs Aug. 5 and Aug. 6, both at 8 p.m. ET.
