Rachel Lindsay is the Bachelorette for the 13th season of the wildly popular show and most importantly, the very FIRST Black bachelorette since the show debuted in 2002. Yes! 15 years! After being sent home as the second runner-up but also fan favorite on the 21st season of The Bachelor, Rachel was given another chance at finding love with 31 successful bachelors. Spoiler Alert: In the end one man was given the final rose and in return Rachel received the proposal she had been waiting the entire show for. The ring was also pretty insane.
So who is this girl really? Rachel Lindsay is a 32 year old beautiful attorney from Dallas, Texas. She obtained her Bachelor’s Degree from the University of Texas at Austin and Law Degree from Marquette University. Rachel is also the daughter of a federal judge, Sam Lindsay, who was appointed by former President Bill Clinton. Outside of working you can catch Rachel cheering on her favorite team as she is a huge sports fan and her appearance on The Bachelorette was a complete touchdown! Rachel Lindsay is a class act with lots of #blackgirlmagic.
