TheBachelorette, As the season premiere, features Rachel Lindsay starting to narrow down the field from 31 men to her soul mate. She will be engaged at the end of the season.
Rachel Lindsay: The Bachelorette
Rachel Lindsay, a 32-year-old attorney from Dallas, was a fan favorite on Nick Viall’s season of “The Bachelor” last year. She was smart, charming, funny and clearly way out of Nick’s league. She was sent home in the penultimate episode so it was not too sad for viewers because producers had revealed about a midway through the season that Rachel would be the new “Bachelorette.”
The question arose here that why producers announce it so early ?. It seems like producers were excited to disclose a “historic” announcement. That after 33 seasons of the franchise, they had finally cast the show’s first black star.
The premiere will include discussion of race, Rachel has also revealed that the show will be similar to every other season. She said “that she is obviously nervous and excited to take on this opportunity but she I will not feel added pressure being the first black Bachelorette because to her she is just a black woman trying to find love,” “Yes, she is doing on this huge stage, but again her journey of love is not any different just because of her skin color is. ”
Host Chris Harrison told that Rachel’s pool of potential soulmates is a little bit older, a little bit more accomplished. “You could not have a 21-, 22-year-old frat guy coming in, looking for love. That’s not who Rachel’s going to end up with “.
Rachel already knows one of the contestants Fred, a 27-year-old executive assistant. Had a crush on Rachel back in elementary school, when she was his camp counselor.
