An avalanche of backlash hit the internet Monday night as the next Bachelorette was revealed far ahead of current Season 21's end.
Rachel Lindsay, who is still a contestant vying for Nick Viall on “The Bachelor” broke the news of her new role after Monday's episode on Jimmy Kimmel Live!
Though many parts of Bachelor Nation were thrilled at the choice, others were questioning why the show essentially spoil itself. Many fans noted that this is the second time the franchise has made an early reveal (it happened last season when Viall was announced as "The Bachelor" while still on "Bachelor in Paradise") and most were not pleased.
ABC has not yet returned TooFab's request for comment.
Though Twitter is not here for the spoilers, it seems Rachel is already embracing her next role. The newest Bachelorette appeared on Good Morning America Tuesday to share her excitement and share how even though she is the historic first black Bachelorette, she's no different than anyone else.
“I'm honored to have this opportunity and to represent myself as an African American woman,” she said. “I just hope that people rally behind me… and just realize that I'm just trying to find love, and even though I'm an African American woman, it's no different than any other Bachelorette.”
