By Elizabeth Kwiatkowski, 06/19/2017
The Bachelorette spoilers revealed by Rachel Lindsay herself have already disclosed her season concludes with a happy ending -- so which bachelors made it to the end of her journey for love?
[Spoiler Warning: Please stop reading right now if you want the ending to Rachel's season to be a surprise to you!]
After a roller-coaster journey to find "the one," Rachel selected Bryan Abasolo, a 37-year-old chiropractor from Miami, FL, as the winner at the final Rose Ceremony filmed May 11 in Spain, according to Reality Steve spoiler blogger Steve Carbone.
Rachel allegedly accepted a marriage proposal from Bryan, whom she gave her final rose. Ironically Bryan also received Rachel's coveted First Impression Rose.
The man who came close to getting engaged to Rachel was Peter Kraus, a 31-year-old business owner from Madison, WI, who finished as the runner-up.
"There's no point to tell you I'm 100 percent solid, 1000 percent solid, or a million percent solid on this, because I basically said that about Peter. That was wrong," Carbone wrote in a June 5 blog post, admitting that he was initially wrong about Peter being the winner when he first released spoilers on May 17.
"The bottom line is my source was initially wrong when they told me it was Peter, they corrected themselves, and are sure she's with Bryan now. And so am I. If they're wrong, I'm wrong."
Carbone's initial set of spoilers was released five days before The Bachelorette premiered May 22 on ABC, so fans were thinking the wrong person proposed to Rachel for several weeks, especially because he wrote that Peter winning was "not a prediction" or a "guess."
Rachel's Final 4 was also comprised of Eric Bigger, a 29-year-old personal trainer from Los Angeles, CA, and Dean Unglert, a 26-year-old startup recruiter from Venice, CA, according to Carbone.
So with Bryan being the last man standing and Peter placing second, Carbone disclosed that Rachel ousted Eric in third place after he met her family in Dallas, TX.
Carbone says Rachel's hometown date in Dallas actually filmed at a luxury house currently up for sale for $3.85 million instead of her parents' home.
The hometown date was also a departure from seasons past in that a Bachelorette's Final 3 guys typically travel to an exotic destination for overnight Fantasy Suite dates -- and only the Final 2 suitors usually meet her family.
The change in format for Season 13 was because Rachel's sister was pregnant when the finale filmed, claims Carbone, which ultimately prevented her from getting on a plane to Spain.
Dean allegedly finished in fourth place, and he was sent packing after the men's round of hometown dates, according to Carbone.
Since viewers are only a few weeks into The Bachelorette's TV schedule, let's go over what we know about Rachel's Final 4 suitors so far.
Bryan is a Spanish-speaking Colombian guy who was the first man to kiss Rachel on her season. She was turned on by his confidence and ability to have a genuine, direct conversation. She also considered him the "good kind of trouble."
In Week 3 of the competition, Bryan accompanied the Bachelorette on a group date to The Ellen DeGeneres Show in which the guys had to dance with their shirts off for the studio audience. He bragged about having already kissed Rachel, with Peter receiving his "sloppy seconds."
Peter was the first man to step out of a limo on Night 1, and he also earned the first rose at the season's first Rose Ceremony.
On their subsequent one-on-one date this season, Rachel and Peter enjoyed BarkFest, a festival for dogs, followed by a romantic dinner and fireworks display outside.
Rachel later wrote in her blog that Peter, a Wisconsin native who owns the fitness company called Worth Training, ignited fireworks in her heart during their date. Peter was also brave enough to strip on The Ellen DeGeneres Show when he confessed to being outside of his comfort zone.
Eric seemed to have a leg up on the competition when he got to meet Rachel on Nick Viall's The Bachelor: After the Final Rose special along with several other men.
Eric, a personal trainer and the CEO of EBiggsWay Training, has made waves in the house by questioning whether Rachel is really genuine on the show, but Rachel didn't mind how blunt and honest he is.
On that same note, Eric considers himself outspoken and opinionated, so he didn't understand why he was rubbing a lot of the other guys -- including Lee Garrett, Iggy Rodriguez, and Bryce Powers -- the wrong way. Eric ended up receiving the group-date rose when the guys had to mud wrestle each other.
And last but not least, Dean is a lead recruiter for StartupTAP in Los Angeles, who boasts a big and memorable smile. Dean competed in the group date dubbed "Husband Material" and also tried his best during the mud-wrestling group date.
Dean previously won a group date rose, and he managed to make a great impression on a couple of Rachel's best friends, Jasmine Goode and Raven Gates.
