Last summer, Dallasite JoJo Fletcher found a fiancee on ABC's hit reality series, The Bachelorette. This year, she'll be rooting on another woman from her hometown: Rachel Lindsay.
In a recent interview with AOL, Fletcher gushed about meeting Lindsay, calling her "incredible," "smart," "beautiful," and above all, confident.
"The second I met her I was like, 'These guys are going to be in for something!' She doesn't take any crap," Fletcher said. "She's strong, she's independent and she's different. I love it. I think she's going to shake it up!"
Shake things up indeed. Not only is Lindsay the first black star of either The Bachelor or The Bachelorette (we approve), but the promotion around next season has been unorthodox -- even by ABC's "dramatic" standards.
Following the finale of Nick Viall's hopefully last televised attempt at looking for love, Lindsay was introduced to several men who would be competing for her affection on the live after-show special, After the Final Rose. She met several more of her contenders (and their abs) on a recent episode of The Ellen Degeneres Show.
Then on April 7, well into filming the season, someone asked host Chris Harrison on Twitter if he was still accepting men to date Lindsay.
@TheRachLindsay and she says bring em' on," Harrison tweeted. (We've reached out to ABC to confirm if they are still casting, but no word back yet.)
Things don't sound like they're going well out at the Bachelor mansion. Or maybe Rachel just isn't taking crap from anybody and wants some new meat. Either way we'll be watching when her season debuts on May 22.
