We’re just days away from Rachel Lindsay’s “Bachelorette” debut. ABC’s withheld many of the details surrounding Season 13, including information regarding the men she’ll be dating.
“Bachelorette” host Chris Harrison has promised “the most dramatic reveal ever” later today, at 4:30 p.m. He teased the casting announcement on social media, which has fans on edge. Neither he nor anyone else linked to “The Bachelorette” has said any more about the cast or the show.
Although nothing’s set in stone at this time, plenty of rumors are circulating about who Rachel will be dating on “The Bachelorette” Season 13. Reality Steve, a trusted — albeit not always accurate — source for Bachelor Nation information, published a potential list of cast members in March. The list includes 23 potential suitors thought to be appearing on the show.
While little is known about who will be living in the “Bachelorette” mansion, Rachel’s been clear about what she is and isn’t looking for in a man. During an interview with ET Online, she revealed that race plays no factor in who she finds attractive. One thing she won’t tolerate in a partner, however, is cockiness.
“I do not like a cocky guy. I like a confident guy,” she said. “You can toe the line just a little bit, but I cannot stand a cocky guy.”
Rachel also has no plans of putting up with drama. In fact, “The Bachelorette” star told ET that she thinks her direct approach will help weed out guys quickly. Rachel said that she’ll do her best to avoid feeding into chatter about villains on the show saying, “that’s not my style.”
“I’m so direct that I won’t entertain the drama or the [pettiness] or cattiness. I’ll just deal with situations as they come to me, so if guys come to me about a villain in the house, I’ll be aware of it, my antennas will be up but I’m not going to feed into it too much,” she said.
While there’s no telling who stirred the pot in the house and who wooed Rachel with their charm and their laidback attitude, “Bachelorette” fans have gotten quick glimpses at the cast. Mike Fleiss, one of the show’s creators and producers, shared a photo of a few of the guys doing pushups in the mansion. He also shared a few quick glimpses at Rachel on her way to rose ceremonies and dates.
