‘Bachelorette’ Rachel Lindsay is already engaged!
The Dallas-based attorney, Rachel Lindsay had announced recently that she has found her love on the ABC’s dating competition show ‘The Bachelorette’ season 13. This is the first time that an African-American female has been the lead in the show. 31 contestants would be seen vying for Rachel Lindsay’s hand in marriage. Rachel Lindsay went on to reveal that she has indeed accepted one contestant’s proposal. Rachel Lindsay was unable to hide her excitement on this new event in her life. She revealed:
“I’m so excited, it’s just exuding from me … I can’t hide it,”
“He asked my parents, he got down on one knee — yes, all the traditional things happened.”
She also flaunted her new temporary engagement ring which was a simple gold band. Talking about the ring, Rachel Lindsay said:
“You got to be surprised with the Neil Lane bling,”
When probed further about her forthcoming marriage and kids, Rachel Lindsay seemed to have a ready answer. She said:
“I’m focused on the engagement right now. I think I want a big family, I have a huge family and I want everyone to come. I wouldn’t throw [the idea of a televised wedding] out. I am willing to do it.”
Rachel, however, did not divulge the name of the man who would walk with her down the aisle. She only hinted that he likes sports and has a great smile.
She accepted that she has broken rules by her part revelation before the season ends. She said:
“I am a rule breaker. But, I mean, I am so excited. I cannot stop smiling, and normally I have a good poker face, but not with this. This is new to me. I have never been engaged before and they were like, ‘Just say it!'”
Rachel was given a special mutually decided exception for this rule. This season is unusual since Rachel could announce even before the show is premiered that she is engaged, unlike her predecessors who were not permitted to say whether they were single, dating or engaged. But it has been informed to Rachel that she cannot be seen in public with her fiancé yet which Rachel finds it hard to follow. She cannot control her happiness and said:
“We do get to see each other here and there along the way, but it is hard because I am excited and I want everyone to know and enjoy and relish in our happiness,”
Rachel also feels that viewers will not be able to figure out who her fiance is. She said she had struggled back and forth with it and it was a hard decision to take for her.
Her request to the ABC’s ‘The Bachelorette’ deciding team

“I wanted the people coming out of the limousine to reflect my dating history — and I wasn’t disappointed.”
She had earlier said that she would not allow any bachelor to kiss her on the first night of the show. But Bryan was bold enough to it. Rachel said she did not resist since she felt that Bryan had tried it in a very passionate way and she went for it. She also labeled his kiss as a good one. She was also impressed by Peter’s smile and handsome looks. She found the ‘whaboom’ guy interesting and different. Jonathan, the tickle monster had made her laugh the whole evening. Rachel enjoyed dating the various guys on the show. But she feels that the ‘end’ of this memorable journey on TV is something to watch for.
