“The Bachelorette” star Rachel Lindsay is engaged to Bryan Abasolo. Abasolo had sparks with Lindsay from the very first episode of the show’s latest season, even passionately kissing her before the competition. The bold move not only helped him secure the first impression rose, but also, it seems, solidified a permanent place in Lindsay's heart.
“Bachelorette” contestant Jack is oblivious and falling in love before Rachel dumped him. The awkward kiss should’ve been a sign.
During "The Bachelor: After the Final Rose," Chris Harrison surprised the new Bachelorette with the first four men who will be vying for her heart.
It was announced (leaked) a few weeks ago that current “Bachelor” contestant Rachel Lindsay would be the next Bachelorette. Not only is this the first time ABC has cast a person of color in the leading role for “The Bachelorette” or “The Bachelor,” but also Rachel was the first one to be announced while she was still vying for someone else’s love on the current show.
