The Bachelorette: Rachel got her ring [Spoiler Alert]

Rachel got what she wanted. She got her ring and is now engaged to Bryan. This one was not a shocker. I think everyone knew she was going to end up with him.

The only shocker in the finale was the goodbye to Eric. I thought the final two would be Eric and Bryan. I was wrong. She kept Peter, even though they had countless conversations about how he wasn’t ready to propose. I respect him for sticking to his decision.

Because she kept him around, their last date wasn’t pleasant. It was more of the same. Rachel harped on how she went on the show for a ring and Peter told her again that he wasn’t ready. Eventually, she gave Peter what I consider to be an ultimatum — either he proposes or she walks — which is not a great way to start what is supposed to be the rest of their lives together.

Even though they both cried, said I love you, and didn’t want to say goodbye, they did. Peter didn’t make it to the rose ceremony.

To me, this means Bryan won by default. If Peter had been ready to propose, I question whether she would have picked Bryan.

So yes, Rachel got her ring, but for how long? A ring is only a piece of jewelry. It’s not a commitment. I can’t help but feel that she chose a ring over love.

What do you think of Rachel’s choice?
