Lindsay headlined season 13 of The Bachelorette and got engaged to season winner Bryan Abasolo. Earlier this week, she shared on Instagram that the two were celebrating their first wedding anniversary.

She currently hosts the official Bachelor Nation podcast, “Bachelor Happy Hour,” with fellow Bachelorette alum Becca Kufrin. Lindsay has also been serving as a special correspondent for Extra since 2019.

“Rachel is dynamic and whip-smart. Being a lawyer, a reporter and a celebrity in her own right, she comes with a connection with the audience that is the ideal fit for Extra,” said Extra Senior Executive Producer Lisa Gregorisch Dempsey.

Lindsay is one of two attorneys on the Extra staff. Cheslie Kryst, the reigning Miss USA, is also a lawyer and will continue with the show as a New York correspondent alongside Nate Burleson. Charissa Thompson continues as Las Vegas correspondent, and Renee Bargh will cover stories in Australia. Longtime special correspondents Terri Seymour, Michael Corbett, and Adam Glassman will also return.

The series is led by Gregorisch-Dempsey and executive producers Theresa Coffino and Jeremy Spiegel. The show is produced by Telepictures and distributed by Warner Bros. Domestic Television Distribution.

Season 27 of Extra premieres on Sept. 8.
