Talk about a blast from the past!

Rachel Lindsay had quite the awkward run-in with one of her Bachelorette suitors (and no, it did not involve a crazy costume). *Cue the cringe-worthy limo arrivals.

In a sneak peek of Rachel and Fred Johnson’s first meeting (Fred’s one of the 31 guys who will be vying for Rach’s heart), he showed off his third grade yearbook photo before flipping a few pages to reveal Rachel’s eighth grade yearbook photo (just saying, who wants to be reminded of what they looked like in middle school #NoOne).

That’s when the executive assistant dropped the bomb that Rachel used to be his camp counselor! #Cringing

“I haven’t seen you or talked to you in over 15 years,” he said. “But I truly believe that everything happens for a reason and I’m really looking forward to finding out what that reason really is.”

While Rachel played it cool in the moment, in her solo interview she revealed that she actually remembered him.

“I cannot believe that Fred is here,” Rachel confessed. “I knew exactly who he was when he came out of the limo. He was a very bad kid.”
