There's still just over a month to go before Rachel Lindsay's season of The Bachelorette premieres on ABC, but the first preview is already here! During Monday night's episode of Dancing With The Stars — where our most recent Bachelor, Nick Viall, is still dancing his heart out — Rachel's first Bachelorette promo aired, and even though it's short and sweet at just over 15 seconds, it's definitely enough to get you pumped for the season ahead. You know, if you weren't already counting down the days like I am.
Of course, her season may have already kind of kicked off during After The Final Rose in March, when Rachel was surprised with the chance to meet her first five men before filming began. But The Bachelorette doesn't officially premiere until May 22, when the real limo arrivals happen, so there's still a lot for fans to look forward to then.
Unfortunately, the trailer's over just about as quickly as you press play, so it makes sense that it doesn't include any new footage — just clips of Rachel from The Bachelor. But obviously, the "real" promo is yet to come, and these 15 seconds are plenty to be excited about.
And even though the clips aren't new, they're still giving me flashbacks to Rachel's time with Nick, which were so much fun to watch — mostly because his relationship with her was so different from what he had with the other women. I still don't get how he walked away without choosing her (no offense, Vanessa), but I have a feeling she's pretty over it by now.
Plus, it didn't just give us a chance to see him fall in love with her — it gave everyone watching at home the chance to fall in love with her too. Rachel's going to be an awesome Bachelorette, and I couldn't imagine anyone else in the role.
I can't wait for the next promo, which will hopefully give us a better look into what we can expect this season... and to see Rachel's (hopeful) love story unfold. I have a feeling it's going to make me wish she was my best friend and/or life coach even more than I already do.
