Black 'Bachelorette' Says Her Quest For Love "Isn't Any Different"

Rachel Lindsay will make history as the first African American "Bachelorette." She told People Magazine, "I don't feel added pressure being the first black Bachelorette, because to me I'm just a black woman trying to find love. Yes, I'm doing it on this huge stage, but again my journey of love isn't any different just because my skin color is." Lindsay has been competing for Nick Viall's heart on season 21 of "The Bachelor." Former Bachelor Ben Higgins predicted the announcement, tweeting in January, "Rachel will either be with [Nick] in the end or she will be the next #bachelorette."
