The Bachelorette Season 21 is going to be one for the history books. The new lead, Jenn Tran, discussed the series at the CMA Fest on June 8, according to Us Weekly. She teased that fans can look forward to a first during the finale.

“I’m also being told that the ending of my season is also something that has never happened before,” she revealed to Bachelor Nation star Kaitlyn Bristowe.

Tran was announced as the new Bachelorette in March following her stint on The Bachelor Season 28. She was ultimately eliminated ahead of the hometown dates by the show’s lead, Joey Graziadei. Tran’s season will premiere on July 8.

Speaking of her casting during After the Final Rose in March, Tran said she felt “so grateful and so honored” to be announced as the first Asian Bachelorette in the franchise’s 22-year history.

“To be here today... being like, ‘I am going to lead my own love story, I am going to be the main character in my story,’ I just can’t help but think of how many people I’m inspiring,” she said.

Two days after the announcement, she opened up on Instagram about her journey on the TV show.

“WHAT A DREAM,” she began. “Growing up I never got to see anyone who looked like me lead their own love story on TV. To be able to inspire a generation of people to be proud of their culture is something I’m so grateful for.”

Another Bachelor First

Before Season 28, Graziadei teased a similar sentiment to Tran. In January 2024, he said that “something that hasn’t happened before” went down in the finale. He was referring to runner-up Daisy Kent’s self-elimination in the last episode.
