Rachel Lindsay's First 'Bachelorette' Promo Picture Is Red Hot — PHOTO

The countdown is on! This is so exciting, you guys. Rachel Lindsay's first Bachelorette promo picture just dropped, and from the looks of it, things are about to get red hot in the mansion.

I've got to admit, the newest contestant to take over the Bachelorette pad looks absolutely stunning in the flowing red-scarlet dress as she prepares to embark on a new journey, becoming the popular dating game's new "it' girl.

The 13th edition of the series, which is set to kick off on May 22, recently released the jaw-dropping photo of Rachel donning a custom-made chiffon and tulle gown by Randi Rahm. According to People, the Texas-born attorney will also be strutting her stuff in one of the designer's creations when she hands off her first rose in next month's premiere of the series.

Rachel, who became first African-American woman to be cast in the coveted position of the reality show back in February, gushed to People earlier this year about the new role, explaining that this season will be like no other in Bachelorette history, while sharing her excitement for the amazing opportunity to find love. She said,

“I’m happy to represent myself as a black woman in front of America and I’m happy for America to rally behind me and see what it’s like for me to be on this journey to find love.”

I'm sure Rachel will make the perfect Bachelorette, as she was a fan favorite during her stint on Season 21 of the Bachelor, featuring Nick Viall. The pair, no doubt, had amazing chemistry as Rachel became one of the final 3 ladies remaining in the house, until she was ultimately eliminated in Week 9.

She looks absolutely breathtaking in the photo, doesn't she? I don't know about you, but I'm seriously counting down the days until this season's Bachelorette premiere.
