History has been made… at least in Bachelor Nation.
After many mysterious tweets from Bachelor creator Mike Fleiss about a “historic announcement” coming soon, EW has learned from someone close to the show that the Bachelor franchise has cast its first black lead.
Although it’s a bit of a spoiler for the current season of The Bachelor, Rachel Lindsay — who’s currently still trying to win over Nick Viall’s heart on the show — is the next Bachelorette. The news will be announced during Monday’s Jimmy Kimmel Live!
