The Bachelor had a lot of dramatic events this week, but my favorite moment was on Jimmy Kimmel Live!. Chris Harrison shockingly announced Rachel Lindsay as the next The Bachelorette. Rachel has been my favorite from the beginning, and I couldn't be more excited. This announcement makes Rachel the first black bachelorette and the first contestant to be named while still on the show.
Rachel is brilliant, beautiful and funny. She has all of the qualities to make her a great bachelorette. Some people are mad that ABC spoiled it, but it would've been in the tabloids if they hadn't announced it when they did. Plus if she doesn't win, there are still three other options he could choose. There may even be four contestants left, if Nick falls in love with Raquel and her cheese pasta.
Congratulations to Rachel. I can't wait to watch and blog about her season of The Bachelorette.
How do you feel about Rachel being The Bachelorette?
