It's almost time for a brand new season of The Bachelorette and it looks like star Rachel Lindsay's men have finally arrived! The Dallas lawyer is all set to start her journey to find #foreverlove and, just ahead of next week's premiere, it's time to take a look at all of her prospective suitors.
ABC just revealed the line-up online and, for the first time, also spread the news with a special Facebook live video announcement starring none other than Chris Harrison himself. According to ABC, the reality show's longtime host also set out with a few explanations about how the casting process was fully customized for Rachel. In a nutshell, Harrison described this year's contestants as "a little bit older, a little bit more accomplished," than they may have been in the past. Just the kind of suitors a bachelorette as accomplished as Rachel deserves!
"You couldn't have a 21, 22-year-old frat guy coming in, looking for love," Harrison said. "That's not who Rachel's gonna end up with. If you look at the bios and I know some of them are funny, but even the 'tickle-monster,' Jonathan, is actually a doctor…You really want to have that wide spectrum because she doesn't necessarily want a lawyer! She might but that might not be what she's looking for." Okay, Harrison. You had our attention at "tickle-monster."
True to form, Rachel's list of suitors also includes the usual roster of real estate agents, software salespeople, and models, along with an "aspiring drummer" and a "whaboom," which Harrison described not as a career but as "a lifestyle." Looks like we'll have to wait until next Monday to find out what exactly that means, but needless to say we couldn't be more excited to watch Rachel's adventure unfold. We just hope the men are all there for the right reasons!
