Get to Know Rachel Lindsay, ‘Bachelor’ 2017 Contestant (PHOTOS)
Our first piece of evidence comes in the shape of Rachel Lindsay, a stunning lawyer who is one of Season 21’s whopping 30 cast members.
Why is this so different? Well, first off, Rachel is the first black woman in the show’s history to receive the all-important first rose of the season, which usually signifies that this is a contestant who will make it far.
Though we’ll have to wait and see exactly how far, it is promising the two went on a 1-on-1 date many weeks into the show while filming in New Orleans.

Can’t you just feel the chemistry through the camera lens?
Additionally, at 31 years old, the Dallas native is reassuringly age-appropriate for the 36-year-old Bachelor.
She’s also total catch with beauty and brains — she’s not only a Marquette University Law School grad, she got her bachelor’s in kinesiology and sports management!
