Rachel Lindsay Responds to Fan Claiming She Settled with 'Bachelorette' Choice

Rachel Lindsay and her fiance Bryan Abasolo made an appearance together on several morning shows on Tuesday (August 8) in New York City after The Bachelorette finale.

During an interview on Live with Kelly & Ryan, Rachel responded to a letter from a Bachelorette fan who thought Rachel settled for Bryan as opposed to picking Peter.

Rachel was clearly in love with Peter. Bryan was runner up. She chose him because he was willing to give her a ring…she should have chosen true love over a ring,” the letter, which was read aloud to Rachel by Ryan Seacrest, said.

“It’s so funny to me, I’ve never been one to settle or to be desperate for anything…that’s why I was 32 and still single. So like, when people say things like that, like Bryan was runner up, I’m like ‘no,’ I think you can clearly see that I have a lot of love for Bryan. I never would have just chosen a ring,” Rachel said in response.

Ryan also asked about Peter, who said he reached out to Rachel after their dramatic breakup. “That was a closed chapter for me. My focus was Bryan, I chose Bryan for a reason. Peter had his chance.”
