'The Bachelorette' spoilers: Rachel Lindsay's winning bachelor and Final 4 guys
By Elizabeth Kwiatkowski, 06/15/2017
The Bachelorette spoilers for Rachel Lindsay's journey to find love are out there for viewers who can't wait a couple of months until the end of Season 13 to find out what happened.
[Spoiler Warning: Please stop reading if you don't want to find out whom Rachel picked as her final bachelor, as well as who finished in her Final 4 suitors].
The Bachelorette season wrapped filming in Spain on May 11, and after a wild journey to find "the one," Rachel selected Bryan Abasolo, a 37-year-old chiropractor from Miami, FL, at the final Rose Ceremony, according to Reality Steve spoiler blogger Steve Carbone.
Rachel accepted a marriage proposal from Bryan and gave the bachelor her final rose. Rachel is therefore currently engaged to the smooth-talking chiropractor and rocking a Neil Lane diamond engagement ring.
The man who failed to win Rachel's heart -- but came very close -- was the 32-year-old Dallas attorney's runner-up: Peter Kraus, a 31-year-old business owner from Madison, WI.
As for the other two bachelors in Rachel's Final 4, Carbone claims that Eric Bigger, a 29-year-old personal trainer from Los Angeles, CA, finished the season in third place, while Dean Unglert, a 26-year-old startup recruiter from Venice, CA, claimed fourth place.
Carbone initially released a set of The Bachelorette spoilers for Rachel's edition on May 17, which was five days before Season 13 premiered.
However, prior to The Bachelorette's May 22 debut on ABC, Carbone initially revealed with complete confidence that Peter -- not Bryan -- was actually the guy who stole Rachel's heart and got engaged to her at the final Rose Ceremony.
Carbone did not reveal Rachel's alleged runner-up at the time, but he bragged about how the finale's outcome was not a "prediction" or a "guess," so fans were led to believe for several weeks that Peter is Rachel's fiance.
It wasn't until his June 5 blog post that Carbone unveiled the correct spoilers, or so he claims. Carbone shocked readers by announcing he was wrong about Peter being the person who popped the question to Rachel at the end of her season.
"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 earlier this month.
"And 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... 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."
So with Bryan being the last man standing and Peter placing second, Carbone disclosed that Rachel eliminated Eric in third place after he met her family in Dallas, TX, along with Bryan and Peter.
Carbone says Rachel's Dallas hometown date 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.
On Eric's heels was Dean, whom Rachel ousted when determining her Final 3 suitors 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, the Spanish-speaking Colombian guy, received 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 because he definitely has some edge.
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, but he wasn't the only guy at the time to do so.
Peter stepped out of a limo first and received the first rose at the season's Rose Ceremony on Night 1. 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 got to meet Rachel before The Bachelorette began taping when he appeared 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.
Eric is also very outspoken and opinionated, but he didn't really understand why he was rubbing a lot of the other guys -- including Lee Garrett, Iggy Rodriguez, and Bryce Powers -- the wrong way. However, Rachel digs Eric because she gave him a group date rose after the men were required to wrestle in the mud.
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.
