Bust Out the Tissues! Several of Rachel Lindsay's Bachelorette Suitors Go Full Mesnick

Posted on

Let it out, guys!

A new promo clip for Rachel Lindsay‘s upcoming Bachelorette season features many teary men, calling to mind former Bachelor Jason Mesnick‘s memorable crying in season 13.

Lindsay introduces the clip in a signature red-hot dress (similar to the one she wore on Nick Viall‘s first night headlining The Bachelor when she ended up scoring a First Impression Rose), then a voice-over poses the question: “With a house full of guys, The Bachelorette‘s gonna be a manly season. Right guys?”

Not so much! Instead, the teaser shows that several suitors will be reduced to tears — and sniffles! — during the reality show’s roller coaster process.

In March, fans saw the first photos of Lindsay when the show creator Mike Fleiss live-tweeted night one of filming. In one of Fleiss’ photos, Lindsay wore a sleeveless white patterned gown for what appeared to be her first meeting with the gentlemen at the doorway of the 7,500-sq.-ft. mansion in Agoura Hills, California.

In February, shortly before Lindsay was sent home by Viall, it was announced she had signed on to be Bachelor Nation’s next leading lady, making her the first black woman to be cast as the Bachelorette.

“I’m happy to represent myself as a black woman in front of America and I’m happy for America to rally behind me and see what it’s like for me to be on this journey to find love,”  Lindsay, 31, exclusively told PEOPLE at the time. “Honestly, it’s not going to be that different from any other season of The Bachelorette.”

The Bachelorette premieres May 22 on ABC.
