Have you ever watched The Bachelor or The Bachelorette and wondered, “How do these people manage to take two months off of work to film a reality show?” Well, you’re not alone. So when new Bachelorette Rachel Lindsay dropped by Yahoo TV’s studios recently, we asked how her fellow lawyers at the Dallas firm Cooper & Scully felt about her foray into reality TV. “I don’t know if you know this, but my co-workers signed me up for all this,” she explains. “So they were supportive of me being on Nick’s season of The Bachelor, and … they were more than excited when they found out I was chosen as the Bachelorette.”
Watch the video above to hear what Rachel’s boss had to say before she left to film The Bachelor — and how her job helped her get over that nationally televised breakup with Nick after she made it all the way to the final three.
The Bachelorette airs Mondays at 8 p.m. on ABC.
