After the last couple of episodes of The Bachelorette, I’m frustrated with Rachel. She keeps saying she went on there to get a ring. She wants to be engaged by the end of the show.
I don’t understand why she’s pushing so hard for an engagement. Some people are able to fall in love during the show (e.g., Trista and Ryan) and some aren’t. In some cases, it might take time beyond the show and, in my opinion, that’s realistic. It’s not until after the show that they really get to know each other.
All of this leads me to the issue Rachel has with Peter. He’s not ready to propose to her. Because he’s not willing to propose, I have a feeling she’s going to be saying bye to Peter next. I think it’s unfair to Peter if she really feels something for him, but I don’t think she does. If she did, I don’t think the proposal or lack thereof would be that big a deal. Dating after the show wouldn’t be an issue.
Will Rachel be engaged at the end of the show? Yes, despite all of the second guessing and tears, I have no doubt that she will be engaged, but it won’t be to Peter. I still say she’s going to choose Bryan and I’m not convinced he’s the right choice. As I said in my previous post, The Bachelorette: Who should Rachel choose?, Rachel shouldn’t choose any of them.
Do you think Rachel will get engaged?
