Rachel Lindsay's 'The Bachelorette's bachelors officially announced by ABC


By Elizabeth Kwiatkowski, 05/17/2017 

ABC has announced the 31 eligible bachelors who will be competing on The Bachelorette's thirteenth season starring Rachel Lindsay.

The Bachelorette host Chris Harrison initially made the cast announcement during a Facebook Live video on Wednesday, which was a real Bachelor franchise first.

"[The suitors] are a part of the most successful, most diverse and, of course, most dramatic cast we have ever had on the show," Harrison said in the live video, adding that the group is comprised of men who are generally older in age and have strong educational backgrounds as well as diverse jobs.

"Rachel knows what she wants. She's not looking to date, she's looking for someone serious," the host said.

(So it's probably safe to say Harrison must not have been referring to Jonathan, who is listed as a "tickle monster" in his ABC bio).

According to ABC, a professional wrestler by day and a doting dad by night, a chiropractor with "magic hands," a secret admirer with a crush since childhood, a "charmer" who suggests taking a trip to Las Vegas and getting married immediately, and a startup recruiter with a memorable introduction and "unforgettable" opening line will all be among the men competing for Rachel when The Bachelorette premieres Monday, May 22 from 9-11PM ET/PT on ABC.

Season 13 of The Bachelorette will begin with the 31-year-old attorney from Dallas, TX, sitting down with some of her close friends from the latest season of The Bachelor to talk about her journey ahead and receive some advice. Rachel will catch up with Alexis Waters, Astrid Loch, Corinne Olympios, Jasmine Goode, Kristina Schulman, Raven Gates, and Whitney Fransway to discuss her hopes and dreams.

After moving into the show's infamous Los Angeles mansion, Rachel will then be introduced to the eligible suitors willing to fight for her heart and her final rose.

Many of Rachel's bachelors will attempt to make memorable and lasting first impressions during their limo arrivals -- including Brady, who carries a sledgehammer with him to "break the ice;" Matt, a "mild-mannered" suitor who "waddles in wearing a penguin costume;" and Blake E., an aspiring drummer who got to meet Rachel on Nick Viall's The Bachelor: After the Final Rose and walks toward her accompanied by a loud marching band, according to ABC.

As fans probably recall, Rachel loved dancing through the streets of New Orleans with Nick to the sound of a marching band on The Bachelor last season.

When Blake E. and the other three men who initially met Rachel on After the Final Rose get a second chance to make a first impression, jealousy sparks among the rest of the bachelors.

At the cocktail party, the men will try to dazzle the Bachelorette during their short but precious one-on-one time. Meanwhile, Rachel will attempt to talk to every single one of the guys who took time out of their lives and showed up to get to know her.

Josiah, a fellow attorney, opens up to Rachel about his troubled past; Fred, a former elementary school classmate, shows Rachel his yearbook and admits he's been carrying a lifelong crush; Adam shows up with a surprise friend -- an identical dummy named A.J. -- much to Rachel's delight; and the Bachelorette is charmed by Bryan, who describes himself as "the good kind of trouble."

ABC revealed Bryan comes on strong but captivates Rachel and "literally" sweeps her off her feet.

One "disgruntled" bachelor, Blake E., then confronts an "obnoxious joker," Lucas, whom he accuses of appearing on the show for the wrong reasons.

The pressure will mount as host Chris Harrison brings out the coveted First Impression Rose, and Rachel will be impressed by the apparent sincerity of Kenny, a single dad devoted to his daughter.

The night will conclude with a Rose Ceremony in which eight men will be cut and only 23 bachelors will remain.

Following the Season 13 premiere, the reality dating series will return to its regular time slot of 8-10PM ET/PT on Monday nights beginning on Monday, May 29.
