"The Bachelorette" Rachel Lindsay Just Started Her Season LIVE


While Bachelor host Chris Harrison is known for promising LITERALLY THE CRAZIEST MOMENT EVER IN BACHELOR HISTORY every two seconds...

....he actually made good on his promise this time.

As Nick Viall's season of The Bachelor came to an end last night, Rachel Lindsay's journey [God, I hate that word]as The Bachelorette began -- on live television.

[I actually can't believe that Dean said that, just saying. It felt really tacky and unnecessary.]

But Eric from Baltimore and his dancing? Yes, please!

Whether you loved the surprise beginning of Rachel's season or not, one thing is certain -- I cannot wait to see the rest of it!
