'Bachelorette' Rachel Lindsay 'Heartbroken' After Being Dumped By Nick Viall

by Eitan Levine

It wasn't easy, but Rachel Lindsay has officially gotten over Nick Viall.

Just to cover all of my bases I'm going to issue a tiny spoiler alert for this article. Though she hasn't technically been eliminated from "The Bachelor" yet we do know Rachel doesn't win as ABC has already confirmed she is the next "Bachelorette." So, you're welcome? I don't know. Please don't hate me, the internet.

If you didn't know this, I'm sorry. Let's just pretend this is still happening.

After it was announced the Dallas native would be taking over "The Bachelor's" sister franchise next season, Rachel made a quick stop by "Ellen" to debrief on what it was like living and getting eliminated from Nick's ABC-sponsored sex castle.

You can check out the interview here.

The big takeaway here is 1) Rachel got over Nick comically fast, and 2) Rachel 100,000 percent knows who won "The Bachelor."

During the sit-down, she told Ellen,

He let me go. I was shocked, too. I really thought that Nick and I had a really strong connection -- and I was pretty heartbroken when it happened -- but I've moved on since then.

She went on to say,

It's different. It's not the typical way I like to date a man. It was something different for me to try. I really had a connection with Nick and I was shocked... skeptical it would happen that fast, but it did and it didn't work out. I guess he was looking for something else. His loss.

Rachel has been making the talk show rounds ever since the historic news was announced.

She recently stopped by "Good Morning America" to have a chat with Michael Strahan about what it's like breaking the color barrier to be the first black "Bachelorette" and what went into her decision-making process.

We're rooting for you, Linz!
