Astrid -- who became good friends with Rachel on Nick Viall's season of The Bachelor earlier this year -- appeared to have dropped a major hint by accident about the man whom Rachel selected at the end of her journey on The Bachelorette.
[Spoiler Warning: Please stop reading now if you don't want any hints about Rachel's engagement].
During a sit-down chat with Entertainment Tonight following Monday night's The Bachelorette broadcast, Astrid talked about Rachel's engagement-party plans with her fiance when they can go public with their romance after the finale airs in two weeks.
"She's planning a party. There's After the Final Rose and then they are going to Dallas to have a party there," Astrid said of Rachel's hometown, where her Final 3 bachelors met her family.
"He gets to meet all of her friends and non-Bachelor people, too. And then they're going to Miami after that to have an engagement party there, too."
Astrid's "Miami" reference would seem to give away that Rachel picked Bryan Abasolo at the end of the dating process.
Bryan is the only suitor remaining who is from Miami, FL. Peter Kraus is from Madison, WI, while Eric Bigger is from Baltimore, MD, although he currently resides in Los Angeles, CA.
Bryan's immediate family also currently resides in Miami as shown on The Bachelorette. Bryan is incredibly close to his relatives, especially his beloved mother, so it wouldn't be a surprise that the couple is planning a second engagement party to include them all.
"I think they're ready to celebrate being engaged and then they'll think about the next step," Astrid said of Rachel's relationship.
Astrid also alluded to the fact Rachel couldn't deal with Peter's reluctance to propose, adding that she believes an engagement was the deciding factor at the end of Rachel's experience on The Bachelorette.
"She doesn't have the time or energy to babysit another man child," Astrid pointed out. "If she wanted to just date around, she could have done that without being on The Bachelorette."
When summing up Rachel's relationships with her three remaining bachelors, Astrid said that Eric brings out her playful side, Bryan brings out her passionate side, and the Bachelorette seems infatuated with Peter.
