When Does Rachel Lindsay’s ‘Bachelorette’ 2017 Start Filming?


You might not be ready to move on from Nick Viall’s just-finished love journey on Bachelor 2017 (JK, seems like everyone is), but it’s already someone else’s turn!

Rachel Lindsay’s Bachelorette 2017 journey is officially kicking off, and we’re not just talking about that awkward After the Final Rose contestants surprise.

Though Season 13 won’t start airing until May 22, in real time, it’s officially underway.

In the early hours of March 16, showrunner Mike Fleiss tweeted a pic of Rachel on set, writing, “Lights, cameras, limos... #TheBachelorette.”

Spoiler king Reality Steve later confirmed that limo arrivals took place on the evening of March 16.

It wasn’t just the Bachelorette and her contestants at Bachelor Mansion, though...

Steve also teased that some of the Dallas gal’s fellow Bachelor 2017 contestants joined her for the traditional pre-season sharing of wisdom.

It’s still unclear which Season 21 gals were in attendance, but we do know of one confirmed celebrity appearance coming up.

Earlier this year, former NBA star Kareem Abdul Jabbar wrote a column for The Hollywood Reporter about his issues with the Bachelor franchise.

Well, it seems like the producers must’ve reached out to him after that, because he’ll be one of the guest stars!

Kareem will join the 31-year-old and some of her guys on a group basketball date on March 20.
