Rachel Lindsay Will Be the First Ever Black Bachelorette
It took them over 30 seasons, but at long last, theBachelor/Bachlorettefranchise is about to get some much-needed diversity.
During a hilariously drawn-out segment onJimmy Kimmel Live!Monday night, the show's host and Chris Harrison officially announced that Rachel Lindsay — the fan favorite contestant on this season ofThe Bachelor— will be the first ever blackBachelorette, and the first black lead in the show's history. The confirmation came afterBachelorcreator Mike Fleiss posted some pretty cryptic messages on Twitter over the past week teasing a "historic announcement" — and he definitely did not disappoint.
Bachelor Nation couldn't have been more excited by the news, and immediately took to social media to express how excited they were, both because the show was finally diversifying its cast and also because Rachel would get another shot at finding true love.

Of course, the most recentBachelorettealso couldn't have been more excited to hear the news.
