Lily McManus has slammed the threesome comments a contestant made after she was announced as the second New Zealand Bachelorette star.

On Sunday night's episode, Glenn Richards appeared to have misunderstood the new "double Bachelorette" set-up and made lewd comments about being with both women.

"I haven't had two women at the same time yet, this could be my chance," he told the camera.

After asking original Bachelorette Lesina Nakhid-Schuster if she and Lily were "together", the personal trainer then asked the doctor if she and Lily were looking for a man "each" or if it was a "two for one" deal.

"There's something that Lesina's not telling everyone. Like, maybe she's into girls, you know? That's what I'm actually hoping for. It's like a two-for-one special, my dream come true!" he said to the camera.

He then pressed Lesina to clarify if she and Lily were "just friends".

Although she ended up giving Richards a rose, McManus told Stuff she was disgusted by his comments.

"It's a TV show and I see how they can manipulate things ... but what he said was what he said, it was kind of disgusting," she said.

She added that Richards would probably regret his statements in future.

In a statement provided by broadcaster TVNZ, Richards said he was "just trying to have some fun with the situation".

"I'm a light-hearted kind of guy and I love a bit of banter, and that's obviously not coming through on the show unfortunately," he said.

"I was joking around with those comments and definitely didn't mean anything by it, or to cause any offence – especially to Lily or Lesina."

After the episode aired, viewers took to social media to criticise the contestant.

"Glenn has got to go," wrote one on Facebook.

"Urghhhh why is Glenn from The Bachelorette such a creep?!" wrote another.
