The Bachelorette Recap, Season 13, Episode 7: Swiss Cheese


The Wrap has partnered with Canvs, the emotion analytics company, for a weekly look at some of the characters and personalities that have TV viewers the most worked up on social media.

On Monday night's season finale of "The Bachelorette", Rachel Lindsay accepted a proposal - and a 3-carat diamond ring - from Miami-based chiropractor Bryan Abasolo.

"I was justified in being frustrated because to get that far and still not know what you want to do was a complete contradiction", she said.

While finalist Peter Kraus is open to the idea of being the season 22 lead - well he actually said he'd "have to think a lot about it" - Miz Lindsay has voiced her doubts about her ex's ability to actually find love on a reality TV program.

"I don't think people realize that, you know", Verna said.

Would you watch Rachel and Bryan if they chose to star in a Bachelorette spinoff? "I felt frustrated for her that she had to go through that", he admitted. Peter, whose breakup kiss with Rachel lasted five minutes and who cried when she left and who walked by her eyelashes for two days afterward because he didn't have the heart to throw them away. She added that even though they found each other in a public way, their love for each other is real.

The ABC star has quickly come under fire from viewers for breaking up with Kraus the night before Abasolo got down on one knee.

Lindsay, the thirteenth Bachelorette contestant on ABC's series, The Bachelorette, is a proud Dallas native and an avid sports fan having earned a degree in sports management at the University of Texas and graduating from Marquette University Law School with a concentration in sports law.

The tears, the heartbreak and ALL the drama we endured this season was finally worth it as Rachel has officially chosen her ideal match. "He said, 'This is where I am, ' he took things at his own pace, and he was really steadfast in that until the very end ― and I appreciate that". I love you with all of me @thebryanabasolo and more than I could ever define to you!

"She also loves being an aunt to her three-year-old nephew, Alistair".

Bryan might be the victor, but in the end he's not the guy that Rachel really wanted to end up with.

While Rachel can't wait to become Bryan's wife, she is even more excited to meet their future bundles of joy. But you don't have to take my word for it. You know, about day or two from now? "He's a serial monogamist and I think he would be great".

"My fear is that, OK, you don't propose and I agree to just date you and be committed to you". Instead, she says it represents details of her relationship with her new fianceé Bryan Abasolo.
