This season of The Bachelor left most fans less than satisfied, but it did give us fan favorites like upcoming Bachelorette, Rachel Lindsay!
It was a series first to announce the new bachelorette so early, but it’s got fans as excited as ever — as it should. Unfortunately, it took the show 21 seasons to get its first black lead, but now that she’s here, we’ve got to celebrate. Plus, who doesn’t love Lindsay?! She deserves her own season, at the very least.
Mike Floss, aka the franchise’s creator, released the first glimpse into the new season. It doesn’t show much more than Lindsay riding around in her limo, but it’s something.

When fans learned that Rachel Lindsay would not end up with Nick Viall, they were devasted, as was Rachel herself. She told People,
“To not get that rose, it really was devastating. I really was heartbroken over it… I’m so tired of hearing how great I am but for some reason, it just doesn’t work out. I feel like I know a lot of women can relate to that.”
She can put all of that Nick stuff behind her now though because she has plenty of suitors after her — four of which we met by surprise after the season finale of The Bachelor. You can watch Lindsay fall in love on The Bachelorette May 22 on ABC.
