Fun Facts About The New Bachelorette, Rachel
In Bachelor history, the receiver of the ‘first impression rose’ tends to make it to the final 4, leaving this season no different. In season 21 of the Bachelor, our hearts began to fall in love with the class, confidence, and beauty of contestant Rachel Lindsay. The 31-year-old lawyer from Dallas stole Nick’s heart on the first night, winning herself that first rose, and continued to gain air time as her relationship with Nick continued to bloom. Although the leak of her being the next Bachelorette was let out before her break-up with Nick, it was still heartbreaking to see them say their final goodbyes. We get to celebrate with her now, however, in the beginning of her very own journey toward love.
Here are some facts about Rachel to get you excited about watching her season, which airs on Monday, May 22nd on ABC.
