With only a week of filming under her belt, Rachel Lindsay has already made history with a lot of Bachelor franchise firsts. Not only is she the first African-American star of the show, she was also the first to be announced as the Bachelorette while still on Nick Viall's season. Plus, she was the first Bachelorette to meet some of her suitors prior to filming on The Bachelor's After the Final Rose special, and to air a group date on Ellen.
In Thursday's Ellen episode, Bachelorette contestants Fred, Alex, Johnathan, Brian, Will, and Peter joined Lindsay on a crazy group date. Ellen DeGeneres had all of the suitors dance in the audience for money. She tells the dancers they can keep their shirts on, but what fun would that be?
Following the dancing, the two winners from the audience dance-off battled each other in a “What do you like most about Rachel?" trivia game that was actually a wet T-shirt contest in disguise. Both contestants sported white tees and stood under large umbrellas that would either release water or rose pedals after answering a question about Rachel. The winner who received the downpour of rose pedals, not water, was the group date winner. At the end of the "date," the winner won a blue and white tuxedo with Ellen's face on the back. He must wear the tux on the show, during the next rose ceremony. At least this way he'll stand out, right?
During the The Bachelor's After the Final Rose special, Lindsay met four of her men, Darian, Blake, Dean, and Eric, on live TV.So, now that the world has officially met 10 of the men who will be vying for her heart this season, it will be interesting to see the other 15 when the show premieres.
