Last week on the season premiere of The Bachelorette, Rachel Lindsay officially met all 31 of the guys who will be chasing her heart in 2017. While almost three dozen men started out in the group this season, nine of them have already been tossed to the side. They left without even so much of a hint of a rose and were told to be on their way. Now, it is time for Episode 2, and the drama is only just beginning as an ex-girlfriend is ready to show her face.
Please note that the following information will contain possible spoilers for the upcoming and new season of The Bachelorette starring Rachel Lindsay. If you don't want to know what happens, stop reading now.
The opening night episode of The Bachelorette is one that usually involves a lot of introductions, a couple of drunken escapades, and fans getting to know the leading lady on a more personal level. Lindsay couldn't find love with Nick Viall, but she has her chance to pick from a wide array of men who may be right for her.
She has already whittled the list down in the season premiere as nine guys were sent home right away.
As recapped by USA Today, Lindsay sent home nine men during the season premiere.
- Blake Killpack
- Michael Black
- Jedidiah Ballard
- Mohit Sehgal
- Grant Hubsher
- Rob Howard
- Milton LaCroix
Even though it is Memorial Day, The Bachelorette will air on Monday night, and ABC is bringing a lot of drama to the fans. In Touch Weekly is reporting that Lindsay's first group dates will take place tonight, and one has a bunch of guys playing for her love in a pick-up basketball game.
Almost instantly, the rivalries between the suitors heats up, and it looks as if enemies are being made very early in this season.

Another group date will have eight men meeting real-life couple Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher for a game called "Husband Material Obstacle Course." As reported by ABC, the men will try to prove that they are indeed husband material and worthy of marrying the leading lady.
Rachel will also have her first one-on-one date, which will be with Peter Kraus as they head to Palm Springs together. Lindsay's dog, Copper, joins the date, and they head to a puppy pool party before expressing their true feelings for one another.

While the dates are one thing to look forward to on tonight's episode of The Bachelorette, it is the unexpected guest who brings the true drama. ABC News reported that Rachel meets a young woman who has some interesting news for her, and it is that she is DeMario's current girlfriend.
"This girl Lexie says she's in a relationship with DeMario and he disappears for a couple of days and the next time she's seeing him is on After the Final Rose, meeting me. I am completely taken aback."
ABC is likely going to attempt to have the spoiler sites look as incorrect as possible as they've started doing recently. Last season on The Bachelor, ABC used clever editing and cut-away moments with "To Be Continued" screens so that fans would think something shocking was coming.
At the end of the season, everything that was reported by spoiler sites still happened. No spoilers have leaked out as to who gets sent home this evening, but that keeps the surprise that much more fun.
Some people can't wait for the season premiere of The Bachelorette, but there is not much to interest anyone except for the limo introductions. After that, it was mostly just Rachel Lindsay getting to know everyone and sending home a handful of guys. This week, DeMario's ex-girlfriend stirs up the true drama in a season that is bound to have no shortage of it, but this is only the beginning.
