Rachel Lindsay is already making history on The Bachelorette, and rightfully so. She’s the first African-American woman chosen as The Bachelorette and her group of potential suitors is the most diverse in the show’s history. Chris Harrison said this about the upcoming season of The Bachelorette.
‘They are a part of the most successful, most diverse and, of course, most dramatic cast we have ever had on the show.‘
Just days ago, Rachel said that she was ‘very much engaged’ which is another announcement unlike ones made in previous seasons. Usually, the suspense is saved for the end; did they or didn’t they pop the big question? We now know that Rachel did get asked and her answer was a joyful yes.
It will take some time to see that happy ending play out, so let’s focus on what we know of the contestants so far before Monday’s episode premiere.
Hollywood Reporter gave some hints as to what we can expect during the first episode, and it looks like some of these guys pulled out all the stops this season.
It’s definitely important to make an impression and during the first meetings episode, there are a few that stuck out. A male model, Brady, will use a sledgehammer to ‘break the ice’ while contestant Adam brings a dummy, of himself. There’s another incredibly special moment in the series and it has given us butterflies. The contestant named Fred actually went to school with Rachel and he brings their old yearbook along with him and tells her that she was the apple of his eye, even then.
We’ll also see the four men that Rachel met on live television at the end of last season’s Bachelor Finale Special, After the Final Rose.
Now, viewers want to know what these guys look like, and the reveal happened this week. We see all of Rachel’s suitors and it took a while to scroll through the photos, so we made them into collages!
From a real estate agent named Adam and a firefighter named Bryce to a professional wrestler, Kenny, and a law student named Rob – Rachel’s suitors seem to have a lot going for them and we can’t wait to find out which one she found love with.
Will you be tuning in for Rachel’s season this Monday? Let us know.
