'The Bachelorette' spoilers: Rachel Lindsay's Final 4 bachelors and winner!
By Elizabeth Kwiatkowski, 06/07/2017
The Bachelorette spoilers for Rachel Lindsay's edition of the reality dating show have been circulating for weeks now, but there has been a big change about which bachelor Rachel allegedly picked at the end of the thirteenth season!
[Spoiler Warning: Please stop reading if you don't want to learn who Rachel's Final 4 bachelors are, as well as the recipient of her final rose].
The Bachelorette completed filming its thirteenth season in early May, and before the show even premiered on ABC on May 22, Reality Steve spoiler blogger Steve Carbone released details on which bachelors allegedly made it to the Final 4 as well as which suitor received Rachel's final rose and proposed marriage.
Carbone initially insisted with complete confidence in a May 17 The Bachelorette spoiler posting that Peter Kraus, a 31-year-old business owner from Madison, WI, had won Rachel's heart and the pair are currently engaged.
Although he did not reveal the runner-up, Carbone said the outcome of the finale -- which he said filmed May 11 in Spain -- was not a "prediction" or a "guess," so fans have been thinking for several weeks now that Rachel is with Peter.
However, in a June 5 blog post, Carbone shocked his readers by announcing he was wrong about the identity of the bachelor he had previously claimed proposed to Rachel at the end of the season.
Carbone now says Bryan Abasolo, a 37-year-old chiropractor from Miami, FL, is actually the winner of Rachel's heart! Peter allegedly finished as the Bachelorette's runner-up.
"I'm sure all the Rachel/Peter fans are about to go into cardiac arrest, but I'm here to tell you -- the spoiler I posted on May 17th was wrong. Rachel is engaged to Bryan Abasolo," Carbone wrote.
"And there's no point to tell you I'm 100% solid, 1000% solid, or a million % solid on this, because I basically said that about Peter. That was wrong... 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 also claims that Eric Bigger, a 29-year-old personal trainer from Los Angeles, CA, finished Rachel's season in third place, while Dean Unglert, a 26-year-old startup recruiter from Venice, CA, placed fourth.
Rachel allegedly sent Eric packing after he met her family in her hometown of Dallas, TX, along with Peter and Bryan.
The hometown date was a departure from seasons past that featured the Final 3 guys traveling to an exotic destination for overnight Fantasy Suite dates and only the Final 2 meeting the Bachelorette's family.
The change in format this time around was because Rachel's sister was pregnant at the time the finale filmed in Spain, claims Carbone, which ultimately prevented her from being able to get on a plane.
In addition, instead of taking place at her parents' home, Rachel's hometown date in Dallas was allegedly filmed at a luxury house that is currently up for sale for $3.85 million.
Rachel allegedly eliminated Dean when determining her Final 3 suitors after the men's round of hometown dates on Season 13, according to Carbone.
Since we're only three weeks into Rachel's The Bachelorette season, here's a reminder of what each guy has brought to the table so far.
Bryan, whom most fans probably know as the smooth, Spanish-speaking Colombian guy right now, earned the first kiss of the season from Rachel as well as her coveted First Impression Rose. Rachel called Bryan the "good kind of trouble" upon meeting him.
Although Bryan and Rachel didn't enjoy a date in Week 2, the following week, Bryan accompanied the Bachelorette on a group date to The Ellen DeGeneres Show. The guys had to dance with their shirts off for the audience, and Bryan definitely stood out.
Peter was the first guy to step out of a limo, the first bachelor to receive a rose at The Bachelorette's first Rose Ceremony, and the first suitor invited on a one-on-one date this season.
In Week 2 of the series, Rachel and Peter enjoyed a festival for dogs together as well as a fireworks display after a romantic dinner.
Rachel later wrote in her blog that Peter, a Wisconsin native who owns the fitness company called Worth Training, ignited fireworks in her heart on the night of their date.
Eric actually met Rachel before The Bachelorette started filming when he appeared on Nick Viall's The Bachelor: After the Final Rose special along with several other men.
Eric, the CEO of EBiggsWay Training, calls himself a motivational speaker, author, "difference maker," personal trainer and "mentor coach."
Eric made waves in the latest episode by questioning how genuine Rachel's intentions really were during the process. Eric complained about not establishing an emotional connection with the Bachelorette until she decided to give him a group-date rose.
Dean is a lead recruiter for StartupTAP in Los Angeles who boasts a big and memorable smile. He competed in the group date dubbed "Husband Material," which was an obstacle course designed to prove whether the bachelors can multi-task household chores while taking care of a baby.
He won the rose on that date because Rachel was definitely feeling chemistry.
Dean also made quite an impression on a couple of Rachel's friends, The Bachelor'sRaven Gates and Jasmine Goode, during the latest mud-wrestling group date.
The girls gushed about Dean when Rachel was looking for some advice on which guys to keep.
