Rachel Lindsay was a fan favorite on Nick Viall’s season of The Bachelor, and starting Monday, she will have the opportunity to hand out long-stemmed roses to some lucky men. Lindsay was sent home after the Fantasy Suites episode, but she was announced as the next Bachelorette before she was sent home. And her season started early when four of her potential suitors walked in on After the Final Rose. The rest of the cast bios were posted, and as per usual, they prove to be very interesting. First impressions matter, right? Here are the best and worst profiles on this season of The Bachelorette:
Anthony — If he could be anyone, he would be his mom to “understand her better.” But that is only the start of his impressive application. He received a Fulbright Grant to teach English on the Ivory Coast, which was also the most outrageous thing he has ever done. The reason he likes his favorite book — The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle by Haruki Murakami — is because “It's like a dream I don't want to wake up from.” He is attractive, smart and, as he describes, “emotionally intelligent.” Hey, Anthony. If it doesn’t work out, hit me up.
Dean — His mom died 10 years ago, and all he wants to do is have lunch with her one more time. He also wants to go to Hawaii to spread his mom’s ashes there. There is a potential one-on-one date somewhere in there. Also, his favorite childhood memory included sitting on the roof of his mobile home, eating Oreos and watching a demolition derby with his family. Rachel, this guy is handing you date ideas in a little white envelope.
Demario — This man infused his application with a lot of humor and personality. He said he is a party-starter and wants to “fire it up, put on some Prince and party like it's 1999!!!!” He likes to be the center of attention, but the natural center of attention — not like “‘07 B. Spears” or “2011 Sheen.” The best present he has ever given was Beyonce and Jay Z tickets because “Bey and Jay = everyone's relationship goals.” Honestly, I think this man might be the one for Rachel. He’s up-to-date on pop culture, and there is potential for a Beyonce concert. This man is the real deal and just might steal the show — and Rachel’s heart.
Jedidiah — This dude’s name alone makes him one of the best contestants. Can you imagine Rachel calling out “Jedidiah” every week? “Rachel and Jedidiah” does have a nice ring to it.
Matt — He volunteers as a basketball coach with inner city children, and one of his favorite artists is Justin Timberlake. Enough said.
Adam — The most romantic present this guy received was a threesome because “It was (his) birthday.” Social standards suggest that you’re not supposed to lie on applications, but why would you tell the whole world that? Too much information, Adam.
Blake E. — Blake E. is a little off beat. His occupation is listed as “Aspiring Drummer.” First off, whoever puts that as their occupation must not be a very good drummer. Second, get a real job, dude. When asked what movie he wanted to watch, he said the new 50 Shade of Grey because he loves “taboo sexy stuff.” Blake probably won’t make it through the first rose ceremony.
Diggy — When asked about a fun one-night stand story, Diggy said he pretended to be asleep after hooking up with someone because their brother went missing and he didn’t want to help. Honestly, Diggy, that was a loser move.
Kyle — His ideal woman is a “7” or better. Way to reduce women to a number. I give you a zero for that, Kyle.
Lucas — He listed his occupation as “Whaboom.” What in the world is “whaboom.” It appears other people are perplexed by this too. And his one-night stand story was also a threesome. Guys, stop talking about how much action you can get, please.
The Bachelorette will air Monday at 9 p.m. on ABC.
