It’s Official! Rachel Lindsay Is the First-Ever Black Lead on “The Bachelorette”
Best Valentine's Day present ever.
Last night on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, Rachel Lindsay made our reality TV dreams come true by confirming that ABC has named her the newest Bachelorette. She's the first-ever black lead to be cast on The Bachelor franchise after a whopping 33 seasons, and all we can say is...FINALLY.
While Lindsay is still racking up the roses on this current season of The Bachelor, we have an inkling things might not work out with Nick Viall. So move over, Nick. We just want to know more about Rachel.
In real life, she's an insurance law attorney practicing at a Dallas-area law firm. Oh, and her father happens to be a federal judge (and he's got his eye on you, future contestants).
Check out the clip—in true Bachelor style, Kimmel is forced to wait a hilariously long time for the big reveal. Now we just have to wait for next season.
