RACHEL LINDSAY, NICK VIALL
It’s 2017 and you’re probably tired of hearing about Black people becoming the ‘first’ to do things, even if you are proud. Well, here’s something else Black people are pioneering. As you might already know, ABC’s “The Bachelorette” will have it’s first Black contestant and it will be 36-year-old Dallas lawyer, Rachel Lindsay.
Lindsay was on the most recent season of “The Bachelor,” and obviously was not picked by Nick Viall.
“The Bachelorette” and its predecessor “The Bachelor” have never actually been appointment television for Blacks folks. However, that could change with Lindsay’s season causing some interest.
A few weeks ago, ABC released the teaser for Lindsay’s upcoming season which will debut on May 22.
Lindsay said previously about being the first Black
“Bachelorette,” “My journey of love isn’t any different just because my skin color is.”
We’ll be interested to see if this season of “The Bachelorette” breaks into the demo of African Americans ages 18-49.
