The Bachelorette July 24, 2017. The three remaining bachelors travel to Dallas to meet Rachel’s family. In Rioja, Spain, Rachel spends intimate one-on-one time with the men during overnight dates. ABC’s hit romantic reality series, The Bachelorette, kicks off its 13th season

Rachel Lindsay reached a stalemate with Peter Kraus on Monday’s episode of The Bachelorette and was left sobbing in despair.

Peter was reluctant.!

The 31-year-old lawyer from Dallas wanted Peter, a 31-year-old business owner from Wisconsin, to commit to proposing at the end of the show, but he was reluctant.

Over dinner she gave him an ultimatum, claiming she didn’t ‘just want a boyfriend’.

‘I want to be truly certain,’ he told her. They struggled to find any ‘common ground’ on the issue. Peter said sadly as she cried,”‘I don’t know where to go from here to be honest.”

Rachel described Peter’s position as ‘devastating’

‘I was hopeful for what Peter and I could be, and then, just like that…I didn’t see it, the best word I can describe what Peter said to me…it’s devastating,’ she cried.

‘For the first time I’m thinking Peter and I may not work out,’ she added as the show came to a close.

The emotional encounter came after Rachel’s final three suitors met her family and each had a one-on-one date in La Rioja, Spain.

First the men were taken to Rachel’s hometown of Dallas.

Peter, who was up first, was made to choose baby gifts for her sister Constance, who was eight months pregnant. He decided to ‘clarify’ his feelings for her before they entered. Peter told Rachel that he was falling in love with her.

Peter decided to open up after telling his friends and family that he wasn’t ready yet for marriage.

Good times: Rachel and Peter had fun shopping for baby gifts for her pregnant sister Constance.

‘You do mean the world to me…I am falling in love with you,’ Peter said.


Her father was not in attendance, for reasons that were not explained.

‘I’m not ready to lose Rachel,’ Peter told her family.

Family meeting: Peter met Rachel’s family during his visit.

Peter then said to Rachel’s mother, Kathy, that he wouldn’t rush into a proposal. ‘I appreciate the honesty,’ she nodded.

‘I feel like my relationship with Rachel progressed by seeing the people that made her,’ Peter reflected afterward.
