All of those people who impatiently wait for Mondays in order to watch “The Bachelor” got a big spoiler alert on Monday, Feb. 13, because the next bachelorette was announced on ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live. The big announcement was made by Jimmy Kimmel himself and Chris Harrison.
The amazingly beautiful Rachel Lindsay is the lucky gal to have the chance to find love on season 13 of “The Bachelorette” “I am ready to find love, find a husband,” she said.
Lindsay is not only going to be the next to find love, but she is also going to be making bachelorette history. Lindsay is going to be the first-ever African American to be on the show, and she will be calling the shots by being the next bachelorette.
Mike Fleiss, series creator tweeted about the “history- making announcement” before Kimmel and Harrison made the big announcement.
There has been some chatter around saying that there hasn’t been any luck in choosing more diverse contestants on the seasons of “The Bachelorette.” After 12 seasons of only white women becoming the bachelorette, the tables have finally turned.
On Good Morning America, Lindsay said “I’m honored to have this opportunity and to represent myself as an African-American woman.” Then she added by saying “And I just hope that people rally behind me like they did in Nick’s season … I’m just trying to find love. Even though I’m an African-American woman, it’s no different than any other Bachelorette.”
Thirty-one-year-old lawyer, Rachel Lindsay has every fan gushing over her. Hence, she got the first impression rose from Nick Viall, the bachelor. So to all fans of Lindsay, make sure to tune in on her ride to find love; Monday, May 22 on ABC.
