Fans of the Bachelor and Bachelorette were promised a “historic” announcement and that’s what they got last night on Jimmy Kimmel Live.
Jimmy Kimmel announced last night that Rachel Lindsay will be the next Bachelorette. Why is this historic? Because she’s the first ever African American to be the lead. There’s been a total of 33 seasons of the Bachelor and Bachelorette. Here’s something weird about the announcement though, she’s still competing on this season to win Nick’s love. I’m guessing she doesn’t get picked. It was leaked a few days ago that she’d be the next Bachelorette, so the producer must have decided to run with the announcement.
