Even though Bachelorette fans have known for weeks that Rachel Lindsay would be the next star of the franchise it will still be a few months before her season hits the airwaves. Filming has already started, thought, and Bachelor creator Mike Fleiss could not be happier or more excited. On his Twitter account Fleiss gave a behind-the-scenes look at the start of Rachel's season and thankfully there is much more to it than that awkward beginning on After the Final Rose.

After promising that Rachel is among the top three of Bachelorettes of all time, Fleiss began putting up a series of photos. He began by posting a picture of himself, Rachel and Bachelorette host Chris Harrison in front of the famous mansion. It gives fans their first look of Rachel's season premiere dress. Unlike the red number she wore from Nick Viall's season of The Bachelor, Rachel is wearing a very shiny and long silver gown.

Fleiss did more than show off Rachel. He also released a picture of what appears to be, if not all of Rachel's televised suitors, at least most of them. It is hard to make out but there appears to be at least a couple of the men who made their debut on After the Final Rose but most are new faces.

It is the also probably the most diverse cast of bachelors The Bachelorette has ever seen. Rachel did say she doesn't have a physical type and The Bachelorette listened. There are not many who look the same, besides all being dressed in suits. (I guess we can assume this isn't the whole cast as no one is dressed in something as ridiculous as a Santa suit or a shark costume.)

In addition Fleiss posted pictures of some of the food available at filming as well some shots of the production room and Rachel getting out of her own limo.

Are you ready for Rachel's season to begin? What do you think of the look of her men? How do you feel about her dress? Could she be among the top three leads ever for the franchise? Who are some of your other favorite stars?
