The Bachelorette 2017 Rachel Lindsay kicks off the promotion of her reality show in a sexy shirtless and wet group date.
ABC usually reveals the contestants for the upcoming season of The Bachelorette about a week before the premiere. This season seems like really special. Four of Lindsay’s suitors were earlier introduced during a special edition of the Bachelor: After the Final Rose almost two weeks ago.
Then, Lindsay dropped by The Ellen DeGeneres Show this week along with six more of her suitors. Fred, Alex, John, Brian, Willie G, and Peter willingly dance shirtless for the audience to collect money.
Host Ellen DeGeneres first explained what the men need to do. They have to show their Magic Mike-esque dance moves to the audience while shirtless for collect money. Whoever gets the most money wins.
After adding up the money, Will and Alex had the most and moved on to play the Making it Rain. The two men have to answer questions about Lindsay such as where she is from and what she does for a living. There is where everything gets wet.
Alex won at the end and he received a gift from DeGeneres – a custom suit that he will wear to his next rose ceremony.

Lindsay revealed that one of the 30 contestants in the forthcoming season already kissed her. The upcoming lead star told DeGeneres:
“He initiated. It was completely unexpected. I know this sounds cliché, but it totally swept me off my feet. It was good!”
When asked if she already found a potential partner among the contestants, Rachel said she is hopeful. The lawyer from Texas said:
“I mean, for me, it’s not secret I’m super skeptical,” Rachel said. “But I will honestly say that I am so hopeful. I have an amazing group of men and I see a lot of potential and I am really, really excited to see where this goes. I feel good.”
ABC announced in February that Lindsay will lead the next season of The Bachelorette while she is still competing for Nick Viall’s heart in the recent The Bachelor. Lindsay is the first black leading lady in any Bachelor nation iterations.
