Rachel Lindsay Confirmed as 'Bachelorette' 2017!

The rumors are true – Rachel Lindsay has been confirmed at the next Bachelorette!

On tonight’s episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live, it was announced that the 31-year-old lawyer is officially the next woman to look for love on the show.

The revelation comes as a bit of a spoiler, as Rachel is still currently a contender on Nick Viall‘s season of The Bachelor.

“We’re a couple weeks out from filming, we’re ready to get this started. I’m ready to find love, find a husband…I’m looking for someone who’s ready for what I’m ready for,” Rachel explained.

This announcement means that Rachel will officially be the first black Bachelorette.

Check out the announcement in the video below…

    She’s great and all, but we haven’t even had the chance to “fall in love” with her yet. Usually we are so attached to the final contestants and look forward to America’s Sweetheart to be picked as the next Bachelorette. I haven’t had that feeling yet, with any of the contestants really, so I don’t know how I feel about her being the next Bachelorette yet. I hope she was picked for the right reasons and not because the show has been reported as not being diverse enough. I’ll still plan to watch and give her a chance.
