"The Bachelor" 2017 spoilers tease that the finalists are already picked out by Nick Viall and history has been made with at least one of the women. On Friday, Reality Steve tweeted that a "Bachelor" milestone occurred that hasn't been seen in the 33 seasons that the entire franchise has aired.

The First Impression rose went to the first African-American woman on the series, and according to Reality Steve, the same woman made the final four. Rachel Lindsay caught Nick's eye on the first night and evidently has kept his attention very well throughout filming.

'The Bachelor' finalists include first African-American woman

Lindsay, a 31-year-old lawyer from Dallas, will now get to introduce Nick Viall to her family. The fact that a woman of color has made it this far on "The Bachelor" will finally help the franchise overcome the stigma that they're averse to diversity. One of the executives has already hinted that there will be some changes to the show in response to those concerns.

 

Reality Steve wrote in his blog earlier this month in other spoilers that Nick is obsessed with being the best "Bachelor" lead anyone has watched on the show.

He's wants to please the viewers and sources have said he's particularly focused on delivering great television after being a contender within the franchise three times before. Steve noted that it was nothing against Lindsay whatsoever, but with Nick's interest in providing good entertainment, it was a possibility he wanted to do something that hasn't been seen before in the series.

Could Rachel Lindsay be the next 'Bachelorette' if fans love her?

Will Rachel Lindsay make the final three, or two? What if she becomes Nick's true love? That would be a the crowning touch for a show that's been attacked for its lack of diverse individuals.
