Still, The Bachelorette victor and Rachel Lindsay’s fiancé is letting it all slide and had even expressed his delight at how things turned out over a social media post of his own. Trista was the very first Bachelorette contestant who just so happened to make it to the alter with the man who won the show. “He realized this was a serious decision not to be made with the pressure of the producers”. I am so blessed and lucky to have you and I promise to cherish you forever!
By the end of the show, Bryan feels like an after-thought, the second fiddle. If Rachel can’t accept that, well, he will make a fine star of The Bachelor. “And then they’re going to Miami after that to have an engagement party there, too”. Bryan strayed from her usual type, whereas Peter, the other finalist, was more along the men she dated in the past.
After Rachel said goodbye to Peter for one last time, viewers were transported to the day of the fairytale proposal.
After a couple of overnight dates with Eric, Rachel reluctantly had to let him go. Oh sure, blame the victim. “You are so easy and effortless to love, and I just want to love you the rest of my life”.
Bigger was sent home at the final rose ceremony, after Lindsay explained that her gut was telling her the 29-year-old personal trainer wasn’t ready for marriage.
“I’ve never been good at goodbyes”, Rachel told “Bachelorette” host Chris Harrison.
After a tense and heartfelt mid-episode stand-off between Rachel and Peter, things didn’t look good for the couple.
It’s official! Rachel Lindsay is engaged to Bryan Abasolo – and The Bachelorette has the Neil Lane ring to show for it. In her defense, boy, what show do you think you signed up for? However, this is The Bachelorette, and if you are on the show, there is a certain expectation that there will be a proposal at the end. She points out that it’s a pretty lame line of reasoning. “I mean, the man told me I was going to have a mediocre life if I wasn’t with him, and then apologized about it”. Peter cries as girls and boys across America smash their faces into the TV trying to comfort him.
Bryan struggled to win over Rachel’s family as they doubt his sincerity despite his best efforts.
“It was like an out-of-body experience to hear the words that he was saying to me”, Rachel told People magazine. And I hope she sets some very firm boundaries with Bryan’s mother. Honestly, though, no one can. “So I actually saw her prior to the time I was supposed to see her”.
All that said, we’re not really here talk about Bryan, who now gets to go back to Dallas and try to convince Rachel’s extremely-dubious family that he’s not a disingenuous creep, or about Eric, who behaved far too much like a normal human being in recent episodes to really generate any victor buzz.
