Rachel Lindsay will be The Bachelorette star for Season 13 of the ABC reality juggernaut this summer, it has been confirmed.
She has made history in that she will be the first African-American cast in the role, or any lead role in the longtime franchise.
In an unusual move, the news of Rachel Lindsay as The Bachelorette came before The Bachelor spoilers could even spoil it.
ABC announced it on Jimmy Kimmel Live, getting out in front of the news before she's even been eliminated on The Bachelor.
As we said, spoiler alert. What we don't have to worry about spoiling is this: Rachel Lindsay is gorgeous, smart and charming!
