Even though Nick Viall's season of The Bachelor isn't officially over just yet, it's OK to be looking forward to Rachel Lindsay's season of The Bachelorette. As it starts filming this month and premieres on May 22, I'm incredibly curious to see who Rachel's contestants on The Bachelorette will be. ABC hasn't made an announcement, but in anticipation of Nick choosing either Raven or Vanessa during the March 13 Bachelor finale, I'm already starting to think about the type of men that I want to see Rachel picking from when it's her turn to hand out roses.
I'll come out and say that I like Nick and would take another season of him being the Bachelor over having to watch a season with someone as boring as Ben Higgins ever again. But beyond Nick's personality, one of the reasons I have liked Nick's season of The Bachelor so much is because of his contestants. Nick's contestants on The Bachelor were accomplished, intelligent, and opinionated women. During The Women Tell All on March 6, I realized just how great these women are, especially since — excluding the Corinne and Taylor drama — most of them seemed to support one another. Because of the excellent casting for Nick's season (which I do think is a reflection of him as a person), I have high hopes for Rachel's contestants on her season of The Bachelorette since she seems like an awesome person too.
As I wish only the best for Rachel, here is my wish list for her contestants, which will hopefully give her the best chance at finding love at the end of her Bachelorette season.
