There are many unprecedented things about this season of The Bachelorette. For starters, Rachel is the franchise’s first Black contestant. Also, viewers got to meet some of the contestants months ago, annnnd there’s a self-described “tickle monster” vying for her heart. Basically, things are going to get interesting for sure. But for the first time in the show’s long history, Rachel said that she gets engaged on The Bachelorette this season, breaking the long-standing tradition of contestants keeping quiet about the season until the season finale. Oops!

But who cares if we know for sure that she gets engaged to one of the contestants — viewers always know that it ends with a proposal. We don’t know who yet, and seriously, let’s all pray on Chris Harrison’s livelihood that it’s not that tickle monster. Because 31-year-old Rachel, an attorney from Texas, is way better than that. (Sorry, Jonathan.)

Rachel told reporters in a conference call ahead of the premiere on Monday, “I am very much so in love and very much so engaged. I am getting my happy ending!”

So there’s definitely a wedding in the future for The Bachelorette!

But someone from ABC must have told her to zip her lips, because she stopped there. But now we know that she’s “very much so in love,” so when you’re working out your Bachelorette fantasy teams, thing of “marriage material” for Rachel Lindsay.
