Tonight is the finale of season 13 for The Bachelorette and Rachel Lindsay chooses who she wants to be with for the rest of her life. And, before we get into all the winner spoilers and what to expect, let’s get the warning out of the way. DO NOT CONTINUE READING IF YOU DO NOT WANT TO KNOW WHO THE REPORTED WINNER IS THIS SEASON.
Now let’s get into the man who won Rachel Lindsay’s heart.
Originally, Bachelorette guru Reality Steve reported that Peter Kraus was this season’s winner, but he corrected himself a few weeks later and confirmed that Bryan Abasolo is the actual winner. Of course, viewers won’t see who Lindsay picks until tonight, but Abasolo is reported as Lindsay’s fiance. And, Lindsay may even get married by the end of 2018. You never know … In an interview with former Bachelor star Ashley Iaconetti on Access Hollywood, Lindsay talked about her wedding, saying:
I definitely want to do it sooner than later. But we’re going to get to know each other at the same time. It’s not happening this year. Maybe next year … Honestly, I’m not thinking about the wedding because I’m like, ‘Are we gonna make it?’ which I honestly think we will. I just want us to get to know each other better.
So, it sounds like things are going well for the couple and Rachel Lindsay said to The Hollywood Reporter that:
You know, I have learned that you can’t please everybody. You just have to accept that, being in a public role. I hope everyone is happy with my decision, but I know I can’t please everyone. I’m happy and that’s all that really matters to me. And he’s happy too.
Lindsay also explained that race did not play a factor in who she picked to be with, explaining:
I couldn’t get caught up in picking a certain man to please a certain community.
She then went on to dish a bit on the man she fell in love with, telling THR:
I’ve learned that he is exactly the person that he said is, which is scary. Even in Fantasy Suites where you have off camera time together, it’s not this extensive time, so you’re thrown into this world and you feel strongly for this person you want to spend the rest of your life with. But you’re also like ‘Is this person the person they say they are?’ And I can honestly say that my fiance is even better than the way I thought he was. And that’s what’s been so great.
Tune in tonight at 8 p.m. ET/7 p.m. CT on ABC to see Rachel Lindsay say “yes” to her new fiance on the finale of The Bachelorette.
