Cassie Randolph is one of Colton Underwood's bachelorettes this winter on ABC's The Bachelor 2019 season. Cassie made a great first impression on Colton as well as on viewers, but it looks like she's doing a bit of back peddling and clarification now via social media.
On Tuesday, Cassie took to her Instagram page to thank Bachelor fans for all of their support. She noted that she had just started her first day of graduate classes so she wasn't able to respond to everybody like she would typically try to do.
In addition to that, Randolph did make an effort to make a clarification about her portrayal on this season's Bachelor. Specifically, she addressed how she has been presented in terms of her career.
Randolph's ABC profile notes that she is a speech pathologist, and that is how the premiere has portrayed her as well. In actuality, Cassie acknowledges that she is a speech assistant, notated by the abbreviation SLPA, rather than a true speech pathologist, an SLP.
The Bachelor contestant says she was encouraged, seemingly by production, to leave the "assistant" part off of her profile. Randolph isn't the first person to tweak their profession for the show, and she surely won't be the last. However, it looks as if in this case, she perhaps got some pushback on it.
