The Bachelorette Finale: How Long Before This Relationship Fails?

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

Just the name of the show makes us question Bryan's intentions.

· From 12:35-1:35 a.m. ET, ratings were: "Late Night with Seth Meyers", 1.3/5 in metered-market households; CBS's "Late Late Show", 1.0/4. Their split marked yet another first for the historic season, as never before on a season of The Bachelorette has a runner-up not made it to the proposal site. In fact, the Dallas-based lawyer and her fiancé, Bryan Abasolo, want to see Alex Bordyukov take the reins. I mean, yeah, you go on the show and know what the ending is supposed to be, but at the same time it's real life. "I learned a long time ago that nobody knows your relationship like you do", she said. "I am so excited to spend forever with you". In the meantime, the reality TV lovebirds will move in together, but have yet to iron out whether that will be her hometown, his, or perhaps Los Angeles, as Abasolo and Lindsay said they are flexible to work from any of those cities. And the success of their relationship must have left ABC executives popping open champagne bottles to celebrate. And she chose a Spanish-speaking man of Colombian heritage as her fiance, ensuring that the show's trademark happy ending was as inclusive as possible.

Meanwhile, Eric and Rachel met before they were introduced in "The Bachelorette". Indeed, race wasn't much of a topic in Monday's finale.

Would you watch Rachel and Bryan if they made a decision to star in a Bachelorette spinoff? There is something freakish about walking up on stage and greeting two people who don't know who you are, but who you've spent the past three months of your life watching and writing about every week. And watching that, I was just crying backstage. I want someone who wants to move towards marriage.

DEGGANS: This is the power of so-called reality TV in shaping the perceptions of viewers. The main issue at hand: Kraus' hesitance to propose after just a few weeks of dating. But the show treated his hesitancy as a jarring flaw.

In a TVLine poll, 80 percent of respondents disagreed with Rachel's choice. Despite his emotional state, though, Lindsay was honest with Kraus and told him that she didn't think finding love on "The Bachelorette" was a right fit for him. Instead, America had to suffer through nearly twelve episodes focused on a woman making awful decisions in her romantic life all for a diamond ring with sprinklings of racial drama in the background to add tension.

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

"The Bachelorette" is supposed to end with a ring. But it did widen - maybe just a little bit - the image of who can stand at the center of the show's romantic fantasies.
