Georgia’s Charity Lawson the newest ‘Bachelorette’


The 20th “Bachelorette” was named and she is Georgia’s own Charity Lawson. Lawson was announced as the new Bachelorette on Tuesday night during a special “The Bachelor: Women Tell All.” 

Host Jesse Palmer asked Lawson during the special if she’d like to step into the titular role on season 20 of The Bachelorette. Upon her initial shock and disbelief, Lawson emotionally accepted the sought-after offer. “Absolutely!” 

Charity said, breaking into tears. “I’ve waited forever to find the love of my life, and it blows my mind that I could meet my person and be engaged and literally have my happily ever after. I can’t wait to show little girls that look like me that being in a position like this is possible,’ said Charity.

Lawson is a child and family therapist out of Columbus. She graduated from Auburn University, earning her master’s degree in clinical mental health counseling in May 2022.  The Georgia native was born to parents David and Vickie, and is one of their three children. She grew up in the city of Columbus, where she attended high school.

The spinoff “Bachelorette” show is in its 20th season and will air this summer.

Charity is the second Georgian to have been “The Bachelorette.” Andi Dorfman, a former assistant district attorney in Fulton County, took part in “The Bachelor” in 2014 and was then named “The Bachelorette.”
