This time, she would be the one in the driver’s seat choosing from dozens of handsome suitors! 

Rachel Lindsay as the New Bachelorette!

Rachael Lindsay, 32, tried to find her prince charming on The Bachelor season 21. With her sweet smile and southern belle disposition, Lindsay quickly became a favorite among viewers. She stands at 5’4”, is inspired by Michelle Obama, doesn’t fear aging (thanks to her mother’s terrific genetics), and enjoys a good Justin Bieber song.

Rachel Lindsay’s Impressive Career Achievements

Rachel Lindsay is a graduate of Marquette University Law School. She also received her BA in Kinesiology and sports management from the University of Texas at Austin. Lindsay has worked in various roles related to entertainment, sports and media relations. She has even interned at the Milwaukee public defender’s office, and was a legal intern with the Milwaukee Bucks.

She then worked as an attorney with Brown & Hofmeister, LLP and Willis Law Group, before landing a spot as a civil litigation attorney with Cooper & Scully, P.C. While her accomplishments seem great, it looks like Lindsay hasn’t had enough time to spend on her romantic life. Enter Nick Viall on season 21 of The Bachelor! The hot, career-driven woman impressed viewers and Viall at the show’s premiere. Fans rooted for the legal attorney to win, but luck and Cupid had other plans, and Rachael Lindsay’s hopes of finding love were (briefly) shattered.
