(Sometimes, two people get dumped.) But the breakup between Rachel and her runner-up, Peter Kraus, was one for the ages. So let's put this question out there - will producers take what they've learned from Rachel and the men of color who dated her to present the franchise's first black bachelor?
It seems like they have a great time and talked a lot but Rachel knows they are still on opposite sides of the spectrum about a proposal. And how is he feeling about everything? "Obviously, nobody's perfect-but flawless for me". "I don't think we had any deep-rooted issues".
At The Summitt, we have chosen to cover actual sports - women's basketball, to be specific. When all this is said and done, we're headed to Dallas for an engagement party and then to spend time with my family.
That said, there is one change that The Bachelorette season 13 finale made to its usual format that should stick around. Could that be as early as this winter in 2017?
Bryan calls Rachel his "reina", his "queen" in Spanish! Because we always ask the bride these things. I really wish you could have seen more of that. I'm in this because I want someone who wants what I want. I think we literally were just on two different points of a path at that point, both heading in the same direction but at different rates.
I nearly can't believe Rachel and Bryan are real.
"I went into this process open-minded and ready for whatever was thrown at me and I don't think even with that I was prepared for what was going to happen, and it was extremely tough ... for me".
Rachel Lindsay: He's a smart man. "Bryan you have shown me a love that I've never had before". If you're wondering what's next for Peter, you need look no further than his bootcamp (and VIP brunch!) next Saturday at at Breese Stevens Field, which benefits the Boys and Girls Club of Dane County. "He continued to just give me enough to string me along but wasn't really there to make that commitment, like he didn't know that he wanted to make that commitment".
He went on to state that he and Lindsay had an adult conversation and he, just as Lindsay, is getting to a happy place. That's what I want from my wedding. Rachel might have a head start because of her occupation but any lead could manage to do it with the right mindset. Is Bryan more interested in continuing his time in the spotlight than Rachel?
Bryan Abasolo: This is actually our one argument. It was a devastating loss to her when she decided not to go with Peter, and it was more of a consolation prize when she finally accepted Bryan's proposal.
Bryan Abasolo: And she'll probably win in the end and we'll have four. The break-up with Peter before the final day of the show created a situation that needed to be addressed sooner rather than later.
"If I had a list, Bryan would check everything off that list", she said on Tuesday.
