In the final episodes of this season’s The Bachelorette, all of us are anxiously awaiting who Rachel Lindsay will choose out of the remaining three guys. First, we have Peter Kraus, the dreamy personal trainer, with an adorable gap. Then we have Eric Bigger, another personal trainer, with a troubled past, but didn't let that define his future. Lastly, and most questionably, we have Bryan Abasolo, a chiropractor that makes us all roll our eyes... yet still Rachel finds herself enamored.
Since the first episode, Bryan has made everyone wonder what his deal is. With all his movie-script-esque one-liners and constant need for physical connection with Rachel, it's hard to believe his sincerity in all of this and how long they'd really stay together in reality. Basically, we're left wondering, "Is he really here for the right reasons?" With that being said, here are just some of the times that Bryan had us rolling our eyes on The Bachelorette.
1. His Grand Enterance
In the first episode, Bryan spoke a phrase in Spanish and told Rachel to repeat after him. When translating it, she found out it that meant “Out of all the guys, the one I like the most is Bryan.” *Cue the eye roll.*
2. "I’m Obsessed with Seeing You Smile"
Right before Rachel was going to meet his family for their hometown date, Rachel explained how nervous she was. He eased her worries and then went onto say how much she means to him and said that he’s “obsessed with seeing her smile.” While Rachel found his sentiment to be endearing (c'mon, girl!), I saw it as just another typical line I’d hear from some rando guy in a bar.
3. Their First Kiss
When Bryan and Rachel were talking, he took it upon himself to grab her face and stick his tongue down her throat. Call me old fashioned, but I’m usually not prepared for someone to suck my tonsils out when I’ve barely introduced myself. Did I mention this happened on the first night? Meaning they'd known each other approximately one hour and she had 29 other guys waiting in another room for her attention?
4. During the Hometowns
When his mom asked him what qualities he sees in Rachel, the first thing to come out of his mouth is that she’s beautiful. He goes off to vaguely say “personality and she’s smart.” My issue with this is that when The Bachelorette answers the same question about Bryan, she speaks of his openness, honesty and how direct he is. See the difference?
5. His Words on Sloppy Seconds
On The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Bryan (cockily) wanted to make sure everyone in the world knew that'd he'd already smooched the Bachelorette. While his urgency at the reveal was gross enough, what was worse is how he responded to another guy kissing her, too. Basically, he implied that his competition just got his sloppy seconds. If I were Rachel, he would’ve been sent home that night... like, it's not "sloppy seconds" when you and 15+ guys are on a reality TV show dating the same girl.
6. The Whole Watch Thing in Geneva
Rachel, being the sweet and generous person she is, bought Bryan and herself matching watches... but he thanked her by mauling her face in kisses. I can see where that could be sweet, but it was a bit much IMO. And ultimately just seemed super disingenuous.
7. “This is Like a Fairy Tale”
I think all of our eyes rolled to the back of our heads with this one. Another one-liner from the man who knows just what to say.
8. When He Said, “I Love You”
The whole premise of the show is to find the love of your life, so I get it, but let’s put some things into perspective. It’s been less than two months and he already said that he’s in love with her. It makes me question his sincerity. Usually the contestants wait until top two to drop the L-bomb. Bryan's "openness" def made Rachel swoon though.
9. His Interest in Rachel's Old School Girl Outfit
When Rachel was talking about her childhood, she touched on the fact that she used to wear a uniform in school. Bryan took that as an opening to say how much he’d want to see her in that school girl outfit. ....Ok, creepy.
10. When The Bachelorette was Scared for Her Life and He Just Wanted to Make Out
During his one-on-one date with Rachel in Norway, the two rappelled off an 187-foot ski jump and as Rachel is freaking out, Bryan's basically just trying to mack. It’s obvious that they have strong ~physical~ chemistry, but we're gonna need a bit more than that to ship 'em, right?
11. Bryan’s Mom Hinted at Him Being a Player
Not that we were surprised, but during the Hometown Dates last week, Bryan’s mom spoke about “all the women” Bryan has had the chance to be with. If that doesn’t scream "my son's a player," I don’t know what does.
12. His Relationship With His Mom
I'm all about guys having a good relationship with their moms, but during Brya's hometown, it seemed a little like Monster-In-Law a la Jennifer Lopez. His relationship with his mother was the reason for his last failed relationship and she was pestering her 37 year old son about his weight loss. Red flag alert!
