In the end Rachel Lindsay picked a true love on the Season 13 finale of The Bachelorette (2.1/8) last night but things sure got messy too. She might seem happy and content but there's a good chance, better than most really, that she'll end up ditching Bryan and giving Peter a second chance. Personal trainer Eric Bigger was sent home first earlier in the finale. Look at the recent graph over at FiveThirtyEight and you can see that Peter has dominated the camera time since the jump. During their heart-to-heart, Peter told Rachel he wasn't ready to propose, but also didn't want to lose her. Once I realized that, it's different than, like, J.Lo saying, 'Her squat form wasn't right.' Because she would know. I love you with all of me @thebryanabasolo and more than I could ever define to you! I can't imagine what she has to go through.
As the season continued, there was a major flag: Peter was candid that although he had strong feelings for Rachel, he didn't feel comfortable proposing to someone he had only known for six weeks.
"I don't think she settled", he added. "I learned a long time ago that nobody knows your relationship like you do", she said. Which is fine! They probably won't watch anyway, especially if it's Peter, who Rachel is clearly still upset with.
Considering that Rachel kind of went for the runner-up anyway, this relationship has some serious issues from the get-go.
"You didn't think her emotions for Peter were more real?"
While Kraus appears to be contemplating about his participation in the next season of "The Bachelor", Lindsay straightforwardly stated that he is not the ideal person to lead season 22 next year. "When I really started to see it was when I had to defend him to my family". "What is holding me back?"
"They're supporting me, they're excited about it, they can't wait to get to know Bryan off-camera". Maybe her fourth-place finisher Dean Unglert, who is beloved by Bachelor Nation? But it was her reunion with Kraus that left more to be desired. "I think she's honestly in a very happy place", Paul said (via Us Weekly). In case you hadn't noticed, there's a passionate minority pushing for Eric Bigger to be the next Bachelor.
