On her season of The Bachelorette, Rachel Lindsay made it very clear she was not leaving without a ring. We don’t blame her for wanting a Neil Lane sparkler on her finger, but it seems her engagement ultimatum is backfiring on the attorney.
Rachel can’t stop thinking about runner-up Peter Kraus, and sources reveal exclusively to Life & Style she is still hung up on her ex despite being engaged to Bryan Abasolo. “She was really hurt by the way things ended with Peter, and her feelings have turned into hatred,” says the insider. “She’s still hurt.”
The insider believes that Peter, 31, was her first choice and she feels humiliated by his decision to not get down on one knee — even going so far as trying to ruin his chances at becoming the next Bachelor.
Rachel, 32, was shocked to hear he wasn’t ready to propose,” the source continues. “She was in love with him.” Her inability to forget about Peter is causing tension between Rachel and her fiance Bryan, which was visible during a recent appearance at the Mohegan Sun Reality Check event on Aug. 9.
When the host asked the couple to kiss, they awkwardly declined. “We did a lot of that during the show,” Rachel said. Bryan agreed, adding, “Yeah, we did enough of that.” You know things are bad when Bryan doesn’t want to kiss his “reina.”
Meanwhile, Peter is living his best life, despite Rachel’s claims that he manipulated her on the reality dating competition. The personal trainer recently raised over $24,000 for charity and admitted he would consider being the next Bachelor.
“I’d have to think a lot about it,” he said. It sounds like a no-brainer to us, Peter.
