At the end of her journey on the show, Rachel definitely picked a man, and he in turn proposed marriage with a Neil Lane diamond engagement ring.
Rachel is so happy in her current relationship with The Bachelorette winner that she told E! News she wants a wedding "sooner than later" and hopes the nuptials will take place "next year."
Rachel's quest for marriage is different from Bachelorettes in the past, such as JoJo Fletcher and Kaitlyn Bristowe, who decided to take advantage of long engagements in order to get to know their significant others better.
Rachel is "definitely in love" and can't wait to go on normal dates that normal couples enjoy onceThe Bachelorette finale airs on TV and the couple can go public with their romance.
So which man gave Rachel the fairy-tale ending she so deserves after getting rejected on Nick Viall's season of The Bachelor?
Rachel picked Bryan, a 37-year-old chiropractor from Miami, FL, as her winner at the final Rose Ceremony filmed in Spain, according to Reality Steve spoiler blogger Steve Carbone. Bryan swept the 32-year-old attorney from Dallas, TX, off her feet this season.
"My sources... are sure she's with Bryan. And so am I," Carbone wrote in a June 5 blog post, although he initially reported an incorrect spoiler prior to The Bachelorette's May 22 premiere when he claimed Peter was actually the man who proposed to Rachel. "If they are wrong, I'm wrong."
The man who got dumped at the very end of the process in second place, according to Carbone, was Peter, a 31-year-old business owner from Madison, WI.
Peter allegedly finished as the runner-up, so it will be interesting to see why Rachel made this decision. At this point in the season, Peter is a little guarded and admitted to Rachel he may not be ready to propose at the end of this journey unless he's feeling 100 percent confident in his relationship with this woman.
With Bryan finishing in first place and Peter in second, that leaves Dean, a 26-year-old startup recruiter from Venice, CA; and Eric, a 29-year-old personal trainer from Los Angeles, CA, to fight for third place.
Carbone claims that Eric placed third after Rachel's round of Fantasy Suite dates, while Dean was eliminated in fourth place after the men's round of hometown dates and Rachel met his family in Aspen, CO.
The next episode of The Bachelorette is scheduled to air on Monday, July 17. Rachel will be shown traveling around the United States to visit each of her Final 4 suitor's hometowns.
Bryan's hometown date was filmed on April 20 in Miami, FL. Peter's date took place in Madison, WI, on April 22. Dean's Colorado date was taped on April 24. And Eric's hometown date filmed on April 26 in Baltimore, MD, according to Carbone.
Below are details released by ABC on what viewers can expect to see from hometown dates on!
ABC revealed the upcoming episode will feature Rachel visiting Baltimore, MD, first.
Eric will take the Bachelorette to the rough neighborhood where he grew up, where his family was constantly tempted by drugs and crime. In fact, Eric admitted in the July 10 episode that one of his relatives is currently serving a prison sentence.
Knowing Eric avoided the wrong path in life, Rachel is in awe of his "strength and integrity," according to the network, as he'll explain "the obstacles he overcame to go to college and achieve his career goals."
Eric, however, never brought a woman home to meet his parents before Rachel, so the Bachelorette will naturally feel very nervous and anxious. Expectations for her visit were probably set very high.
Eric apparently promises his family that he'll stop running from love, but will he be able to gather the courage to tell Rachel that he is in love with her?
Rachel will then be shown visiting Bryan's hometown in Miami. Bryan will take Rachel to the famous Calle Ocho, where the couple will attempt to salsa dance, play dominoes and sample some tasty street food from Colombia, according to ABC.
"However, there are dark clouds looming as Rachel is fearful of not getting Bryan's mother's approval," the network teased, which was "a problem that broke up his last relationship."
Rachel will apparently try to convince Bryan's mom that she would be the perfect match for her son and the perfect daughter-in-law, but Bryan's mom will remain suspicious of the whirlwind relationship.
Peter couldn't wait to introduce Rachel to his friends and his welcoming family, but the bachelor will still be struggling to let down his walls in fear of getting rejected or the relationship not working out.
"And the Bachelorette's revealing talk with his mother makes her unsure of what to expect from her sensitive suitor," the network teased.
The last date that will be shown on the July 17 episode belongs to Dean.
The date will start out great, as Dean takes Rachel on an ATV ride. But the mood will change when Dean prepares Rachel for the fact his father is a Sikh Kundalini yogi, who allegedly provided little love and support after Dean's mother passed away from breast cancer when the suitor was only 15-years-old.
Dean has been estranged from his father for about 10 years, so he'll probably need a lot of comfort and support from Rachel on the date with his "unorthodox family," which ABC says the Bachelorette is more than willing to provide.
Dean will "barely be able to contain his intense feelings toward his father," according to ABC.
After Rachel and other family members leave Dean alone to chat with his father, what the network says transpires from this heart-to-heart talk is "something that rarely has been seen before on The Bachelorette."
After the hometown dates, Rachel and her four suitors will travel to her own hometown of Dallas, TX, where the Bachelorette must make an extremely difficult decision at a Rose Ceremony allegedly filmed on April 27.
Rachel will be falling in love with all four men at this point in her journey, so ABC calls her decision "impossible." She ends up saying goodbye to one "devastated" bachelor, who will be Dean, according to Carbone.
"Shaken by this gut-wrenching and heartbreaking ordeal, Rachel doesn't have much time to gather herself and take the remaining three men to Rioja, Spain," ABC revealed.
Rachel and her Final 3 guys then allegedly take advantage of the overnight Fantasy Suite dates in Spain, after which Eric will be ousted from the reality dating competition in third place before the Final Rose Ceremony.
