Rachel Lindsay contestant list part 1

Ok so we have our first ever African-American Bachelorette, 31-year-old Dallas, Texas attorney, Rachel Lindsay, and as you can imagine this season will be chock full of chocolate. And let’s be honest, I think the white dudes are just window dressing to make the contestant pool look ‘diverse’. I don’t think there’s a chance in hell Rachel will choose a white boy since prior to Nick she had never been interested in one, but there are still a few in the cast.

The 2017 season of The Bachelorette will premier in May and her contestants (and contestants of the 2017 season of Bachelor in paradise) are out….
