Viewers have been watching "The Bachelorette" all season with Rachel Lindsay, the first black star during the history of the franchise since it started 15 years ago. The 32-year-old Dallas, Texas native was the second runner-up on Season 21 of "The Bachelor" featuring Nick Viall. In fact, she was still on the show when she was invited to be the lead of Season 13 of "The Bachelorette" that started on May 22, 2017.

Before the season started, Rachel announced she was already engaged. However, she never revealed who received the final rose and proposed to her in Rioja, Spain.

Fans will find who during the three-hour finale on Monday, August 7, 2017. The last three men left are Eric Bigger, Peter Kraus, and Bryan Abasolo.


Eric is the only black man left. He is a 29-year-old personal trainer from Baltimore, Maryland. While he and Rachel had fun together and he kept her laughing, he doesn't seem like he is ready to get married. His maturity level doesn't appear to match Rachel's. He has never been in love, and Rachel was the first woman he has taken home to meet his family. Most fans believe Eric should have been sent home after the hometown dates. Rachel sent Dean home instead and spent a night in the fantasy suite with Eric.


Peter is a 31-year-old business owner from Madison, Wisconson.

He has already told Rachel that he is not ready for marriage. Therefore, his proposal would be one to continue to date her and not to marry her. If Rachel chooses him, it would have defeated the purpose of her going on "The Bachelorette." Peter seems to be a fan-favorite, but his reluctance to propose might have been a deal breaker.


Bryan is a 37-year-old chiropractor from Miami Lakes, Florida. His last one-on-one date with Rachel will be shown on the season finale. Rachel has liked Bryan from the very beginning. She gave him the first impression rose on the very first night, and he was the first one to kiss her. Bryan and his mother are exceptionally close.

He admitted that's why he broke up with his last girlfriend. During the hometown dates, Bryan's mother also spoke about how close she is to her son. Rachel's mother questioned if Bryan would side with his wife or mother if something ever came up when he had to.

So, who will it be?

It will either be Peter or Bryan. While most want it to be Peter, they think it will be Bryan. Life & Style reported that Rachel's friends are disappointed with Rachel's choice, but she is sticking with her gut feeling. The friends believe the runner-up has all the qualities Rachel was looking for in a marriage. They also admitted that Rachel struggled with her final choice and might have chosen wrong.

Rachel is said to have told the second runner-up not to contact her after the final rose because even though her decision was difficult, it had to be final. It was heard through the grapevine that the one Rachel chose went on the show not to win her heart. Instead, his aim was to become the next star of "The Bachelor."
