Perhaps because it’s Wednesday but it really feels like Monday because I spent the last two days observing Passover, perhaps because Heidi Montag is pregnant, or perhaps just because it’s been a while since Nick Viall has done anything interesting—whatever the reason, the gods of entertainment news and ABC have graced us with our very first teaser of Rachel’s season of The Bachelorette. I guess sometimes, we can have nice things. On Monday (yes I know we’ve been slipping), ABC tweeted out the teaser. Honestly, not that much was revealed, other than the fact that The Bachelorette is airing this May, which we all knew already. I watched this video a couple of times hoping for something to poke fun of, but there’s really nothing. Damn it, Rachel, why are you so lovable? Give me something to work with here! There isn’t even any new footage in here—this is just all of Rachel’s old Bachelor moments spliced together with a nice upbeat song in the background. The entire video is basically ABC being like “Ya we’re sorry we subjected you to Nick Viall and almost made you watch an entire season of Caila as the Bachelorette, but this time we actually listened to the fans and LOOK HOW GREAT RACHEL IS!”
So yeah. Nothing earth-shattering, but here it is. Watch it below because it’s only 15 seconds and I know your time/life is not that valuable.

Now just try and get that song out of your head.
