Rachel Lindsay Questions if She's Making a "Big Mistake" in 'Bachelorette' Clip (Exclusive Video)
Rachel Lindsay is putting her Bachelorette finalists through the wringer when they are tested with both the annual Fantasy Suites and family introductions Monday night.
After eliminating Dean Unglert in a heartbreaking rose ceremony last week, the ABC reality star has found herself down to her final three men: Peter Kraus, 31; Bryan Abasolo, 37; and Eric Bigger, 29. Instead of following franchise tradition, however, Lindsay, 32, throws the men a curveball by bringing them home to Dallas to meet her family before giving them an opportunity for an overnight date in the highly anticipated "fantasy" suites. The Fantasy Suite date is the first opportunity for the Bachelorette or Bachelor to spend the night with her or his finalists and be uninterrupted by the cameras, and has preceded family introductions on previous seasons.
The Lindsay family, who were first introduced on last season's The Bachelor when Lindsay brought Nick Viall home, share concerns about each of Lindsay's final picks. In The Hollywood Reporter's exclusive clip of the episode (above), Lindsay is heard saying, "I'm in love with all of them." But the women in her family express their opinions about Bigger never having been in love and of Abasolo possibly living "in a bubble."
The most tense moment, however, comes between Lindsay and Kraus. Kraus has expressed reservations about getting down on one knee and when they head to Rioja, Spain, for the overnight dates, something that he tells her does not sit well.
"Engagement is just like, 'We're getting married,'" he tells her of his interpretation of the season finale step. When she disagrees, he says, "I don't know where to go from here."
The clip ends with Lindsay in tears like viewers have yet to see from the star, saying, "I just feel like I'm making a big mistake."
Since Lindsay, who made history this season as ABC's first black Bachelorette, has already revealed she is engaged, could the "mistake" she's referring to be keeping Kraus around? Tell THR your thoughts on her final three in the comments below and check back with Live Feed tonight after the episode airs at 8 p.m. on ABC.
