Was announcing the new Bachelorette worth spoiling this season?
About This Episode

ABC made a little bit of Bachelorette history in two ways on Monday. First, it revealed the identity of the next Bachelorette, Rachel, a lawyer who also marks the first time the show has cast a black Bachelorette. Secondly, however, there’s a strange detail to the announcement: Rachel is still very much in competition on the current season of The Bachelor, meaning ABC spoiled its own series. Why would they do such a thing? The A.V. Club’s Alex McCown-Levy and Katie Rife get into this unusual bit of reality TV news and try to unearth the motives behind the madness.
