Also, he likes sports," she previously shared with .
ABC will either have its first interracial couple or its first black winner.
She offered this tease about him: He is "confident, direct, self-aware, [has] a sense of humor, great smile, knows what he wants as far as the same things that I want — a marriage and a family.
Will Gaskins, a 28-year-old black contestant, was particularly vocal on the subject during Tuesday's episode, telling his fellow housemate that Lindsay does "not look like the people that I've been dating for the past couple years." The Miami sales manager then went on to say that he typically dates white girls. Lindsay said she, too, was raised in a majority white community, but has predominantly dated black people.
In fact, she told in May that she wanted her cast to reflect her dating history, and her cast rates as the ABC franchise's most-diverse grouping in its 15-year run.
But her thoughts had slightly shifted after she finished filming.
She told that pressure "was something I wanted to get over before I entered my own season." To do so, she gave herself an internal pep talk: "I was just like, ' You know what? I’m the one who has to love and spend the rest of my life with this person, if I’m lucky to find that one.

I see Rachel,' but at the same time with this climate we're in, I feel like you've seen more racism come out and so he does need to be aware it's not something that you can just hide and ignore," she explained.
Nation may reunite with Constance when Lindsay brings her final two men home to meet her parents and siblings.

Viewers will likely watch more discussions of race unfold onscreen, as she also stressed how important it was for her to bring up those conversations once she was going to walk into someone’s home or vice versa.
About keeping the controversial contestant on for six episodes, and watching him pick fights with several black contestants, Lindsay took to Twitter to say: "I may not see everything and I may do things on my own time..I keep my grass cut low so the snakes will show." Earlier this season, Lindsay's stress from the drama in the house, coupled with the pressure of being the first black Bachelorette, led to a tearful breakdown.
