rachel lindsay has already leaked that she gets engaged at the end of "The Bachelorette" 2017 season, but it almost didn't happen. The 31-year-old attorney from Dallas is probably the smartest lead the franchise has ever had and it didn't come without a few hiccups. A woman of Rachel's intelligence is used to exerting a lot of control in her life and considers her options before making a decision. It's an inherent quality of successful people in any realm -- especially the legal profession.

Rachel had to change her ways or sacrifice finding love

Chris Harrison tells Hollywood Life that Rachel almost didn't find love on "The Bachelorette" because she was "very controlling" and "methodical" in her approach. Details are paramount to Lindsay, but it went a bit far at times. Harrison imparts that Rachel had to change somewhat in order to find love. Letting go of that control was important in order for her to allow things to happen naturally. Her methodical ways left producers frustrated in the filming process. "The Bachelor" host shares that this side of Rachel had to be dealt with so she would have more success in her journey to finding love. He explains that sometimes "you have to take your hand off the wheel" to let love in.

Since Rachel is the type who wants to "fix" things and "make them work," she unintentionally let the romantic part go by the wayside. Harrison told ABC News that there were some "bumps and bruises" throughout the process, but in the end everything went well. As popular and sweet Lindsay appears to be, she had some idiosyncrasies producers had to contend with.

Chris Harrison adds that this season of "The Bachelorette" has some amazing celebrities, great dates, and it's a wild ride. Reality Steve spoiled that the premiere episode is the funniest one he's seen. There are some great one-liners and pegs Kenny, Peter and Bryan will be the early favorites.

Spoilers for the final episode have been leaked and Reality Steve blogged the spoilers last week.
