Alexis Waters dishes on 'fireball' Bachelorette Rachel Lindsay


Former "The Bachelor" contestants Alexis Waters and Olivia Caridi chatted about all things Bachelorette along with "Here To Make Friends" podcast hosts Emma Gray and Claire Fallon. The panel discussed the behind-the-scenes of the incredibly popular ABC reality TV series as well as their predictions for season 13 of "The Bachelorette." This season is historic thanks to Rachel Lindsay, the first Bachelorette of color.

Waters, a self-described aspiring dolphin trainer infamous for meeting Bachelor Nick Viall in a shark costume, went into detail about Lindsay (who also competed for Viall's heart).

"She's the coolest human ever. She's awesome. She got along with everyone," said Waters. "'Fireball Rach,' we call her, because she loves [to drink] Fireball. She's the perfect Bachelorette."

Caridi, who appeared on Ben Higgin's season and has her own podcast "Mouthing Off," shared her analysis of recently split couple Ben Higgins and Lauren Bushnell: "I could tell the entire time there was something off. I hate to say [I saw it coming]...They were two very different people who gave it a go and were too different from the start."

"It's my and Ben's time [to get together]," she joked.

Waters will be featured in the upcoming season of "Bachelor in Paradise," and she and Caridi expressed interest in participating in the fresh spinoff "Bachelor Winter Games," in which fan favorites from the franchise compete in Olympic-theme athletic events.
