One big reason is that Rachel is still on the show and trying to win the heart of Nick Viall. The fact that they are announcing it tonight will be a huge spoiler for fans that don't read the spoilers. They will know that Rachel isn't the one who wins Nick's heart and that she gets sent home sometime soon. They have never announced it like that before.

Rachel Lindsay will also be the first African-American lead that "The Bachelor" or "The Bachelorette" has ever had.
