There’s much to be gained by joining the Bachelor or the Bachelorette. Either you walk away with a fiancee, a new group of friends, millions of Instagram followers and various endorsements, or all of the above. While the ideal goal is to find love, some past contestants have tied the knot and are still together today. Last season’s bachelorette Rachel Lindsay chose Bryan Abasolo and while not concrete, gave an update on their wedding plans.
In an interview with Extra TV, Abasolo stated, “We haven’t set anything yet. We definitely want to get married this year, and that’s the plan. 2018, it’s gonna happen.” He continued, “Rachel isn’t much of a planner, so she’ll kind of deal with it as it comes along, but, you know, right now, we’re just taking our time.”
It sounds like Abasolo is leaving most of the planning to Lindsay, and he also talked about how he’s open to televising the event. “We would definitely be open to a televised wedding. We, right now, we enjoy showing everybody how in love we are… and I think that would be the culmination of our love story or the beginning of it. I think we would definitely enjoy doing it on national television.”
They wouldn’t be the first as couples Ashely Hebert and JP Rosenbaum and Sean Lowe and Catherine Giudici got hitched on TV with Chris Harrison as the officiator.
Abasolo and Lindsay’s wedding could either be in their hometowns of Dallas and Colombia and who knows, maybe both?
Over the seasons, it’s been apparent that the Bachelorette has had a higher success rate as couples Jojo Fletcher and Jordan Rodgers, Kaitlyn Bristowe and Shawn Booth, and Desiree Hartsock and Chris Siegfried are all going strong if not already married. Hartsock and Siegfried welcomed a baby boy in 2016, while Bristowe recently went wedding dress hunting.
Whenever Abasolo and Lindsay do decide to get married, we just hope it’ll be televised so they can satisfy the hopeless romantics in us.
