'The Bachelorette' recap: Rachel gets engaged, runner-up suitor snaps

The Bachelorette Rachel Lindsay may have made a mistake with her final pick

In one of the most tense reunions between a victor and his or her runner-up in recent memory, Peter Kraus admitted that he cried while on the set of After the Final Rose, the annual live post-finale special hosted by Chris Harrison, when re-living his unfinished exit from the reality dating show. (Your modeling photos and your personal training business and your six-pack abs will surely not hurt your chances.) And when the time is right, the girl you choose will be your first and last proposal, just like you want.

Prepare for spoilers-and, since you didn't watch, you probably don't care.

Next day, Rachel is back with Peter exploring a monastery.

Rachel Lindsay had a brutal breakup with Peter Kraus on The Bachelorette-it was so bad she cried her eyelashes off-but now the ABC reality star says it really wasn't a hard choice to choose Bryan Abasolo as her final man. Rachel accepted a proposal and some Neil Lane bling from the good doctor, who got down on one knee during The Bachelorette final rose ceremony set in Spain, while Peter headed back to the States still a single man. He was even rewarded the coveted first impression rose, and as far as "The Bachelorette" is concerned, she's "living (her) best life" engaged to Bryan. Nevertheless, both men made it to the "fantasy suite" phase in Spain-a.k.a, let's all be adults here, they in all likelihood had sex. "I think she was just as emotional as I was". During their chat with Ryan Seacrest and guest host Rita Ora, it was revealed that Rachel will take Bryan's last name.

I love Peter as much as the next person, but hear me out.

But in the end, it was Bryan whom Rachel chose.

"You are so easy and effortless to love, and I just want to love you for the rest of my life", Bryan said. Despite her doubts, she says goodbye to Eric and hands roses to Bryan and Peter.

Peter and Rachel explore a monastery to bide some time before the big talk that looms ahead.




It was clear from the very first episode that Lindsay, the first African-American bachelorette in the 13-season history of the franchise, was serious about finding love. I didn't know how to respond to Rachel.

Charlize Theron told Andy Cohen on "Watch What Happens Live!" that Lindsay "is smart, she is sexy, she is attractive".

Congratulations Rachel and Bryan!

If I'm being 100% honest, I thought the best part of the finale was the preview for "Bachelor in Paradise!". He was a gentlemen, giving her and the two men left standing big hugs.

"It's been a long time coming, " he said.

Lindsay claimed that listening to his words while in Spain and on top of a handsome castle it was like an 'out-of-body experience'. And as they are reunited in real life, Bryan re-proposes. "I am completely head-over-heels totally absolutely in love with you".

"I love you and I can't imagine spending my life with someone else", added Lindsay.
