The hours are trickling by and Rachel Lindsay is narrowing down her suitors on The Bachelorette. Honestly, it’s looking pretty good for Bryan — not only has she chosen Bryan for a second one-on-one date (some guys haven’t even been on one, which makes them so mad inside), but Rachel dropped some hints that Bryan wins The Bachelorette. Well she may not have been hinting at the time, but things make a lot of sense in hindsight. I see you, Rachel.
At the end of their one-on-one, Rachel sounded like a woman on the verge of confessing that she was in love (emphasis mine):
“When I’m with Bryan, I feel like I’m in a fairy tale. He makes me feel like I’m definitely his princess. I absolutely want to be with someone who makes me my best self and who brings out the best in me. Bryan does that. He has a lot of the characteristics I’m looking for in a husband.”
Hmm... where I have heard that one before? Could it be in the Hollywood Reporter when Rachel announced that she was engaged after the show? She said of her new fiancé, “If I had a list he would check everything off." That sounds pretty close to what Rachel said of Bryan on the show, doesn’t it? I’m not a mathematician or anything, but Rachel may have just dropped a serious hint on who she picks in her search for love — and it could very well be that Bryan is the one whose characteristics check all of Rachel's husband-material boxes.
She may not have known at the time that she could have dropped a potential clue as to who she chooses, but once you hear it you can't unhear it. Based on this quote alone, I think Bryan's chances are looking very good indeed.
