Nick Viall Makes ‘Bachelor’ History With First Impression Rose
The Season 21 lead is rolling in with three previous franchise seasons behind him, and it sounds like he’s ready to shake things up. Our proof? His choice for the First Impression Rose.
According to Reality Steve, the lucky lady who grabs Nick’s attention during limo arrivals is a gal by the name of Rachel Lindsay, a 31-year-old lawyer who, yes, is a woman of color!
The spoiler king points out this is the first time a black contestant has received the first impression rose in the 21 seasons of the ABC reality series. And it seems like his interest in her has only increased since the first night.
In fact, he brought the Dallas beauty on a 1-on-1 date in New Orleans this week — which proves she’s already made it to Episode 5!

Now, Steve does note the 36-year-old hunk is also aware of what “makes good TV,” and is really hoping people will like him and his season of the show.
But we’re not so skeptical to think this is calculated. We’ll take the win, right?
Rachel is definitely one to watch, guys, and while you’re waiting to officially meet her in January, head over to her Facebook to learn a bit more.
The Bachelor Season 21 premieres Monday, January 2 at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
