Season 13 of The Bachelorette ended with one of the most dramatic finales in the show’s history. Everything came to a head between Rachel Lindsay and Peter Kraus. Typically, the Bachelorette is left to choose between the last two men in the show’s finale, but that was all clouded by a standstill.
Rachel was adamant that she wanted her journey to end with a proposal. However, Peter stuck to his guns about not being ready to propose and simply wanting to continue dating after the show. Both people had the right to feel the way they felt, and neither compromised.
So Rachel left Peter and got engaged to Bryan Abasolo — without the drama of two suitors going through a rose ceremony. Fans were shocked and many were flat out Team Peter, even demanding that he become the next Bachelor.
But he would be a horrible choice for The Bachelor, and here are seven reasons why.
1. We already know his season wouldn’t end with an engagement, which is anticlimactic
This finale was certainly dramatic, given the unexpected conflict that happened before the rose ceremony. But it was also very frustrating because of said drama. If Peter goes through the whole process again, we already know that he thinks that the show isn’t enough time to find someone he sees himself marrying.
That’s perfectly reasonable, but it also defeats the point of the show. There have been couples who ended the season simply dating before, but people never go into the series expecting that.
Want a more exciting ending of The Bachelor? Go with someone who is a little more unexpected than Peter, who already made it to that stage of the show.
