When Does Rachel Lindsay’s ‘Bachelorette’ 2017 Start Filming?
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.
Nothing like getting info while I'm on a plane: Rachel's season begins filming tomorrow night.RealitySteve (@RealitySteve) March 15, 2017
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.
No. They're there tondo the whole "talk" thing w Rachel for the first episode. We see it every season https://t.co/QPSDF27IdhRealitySteve (@RealitySteve) March 14, 2017
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.

We can’t wait to see who does (and doesn’t) have skills on the court!
The Bachelorette Season 13 premieres Monday, May 22 on ABC.
