The Bachelorette’s Rachel Lindsay Is Ready to Get Married — But Not *Too* Soon
While drama raged during last night’s The Bachelorette: Men Tell All special, contestant Rachel Lindsay is enjoying life off camera with her fiancé. Speaking with former Bachelor contestant Ashley Iaconetti for Access Hollywood, she revealed she’s ready to get married — but not too soon.
“I’m definitely going to date my fiancé off camera,” Lindsay told Iaconetti. “I mean, I feel like it’s important to cultivate the relationship in a normal setting, and for the first time in two weeks, we will be normal — as best as you can be.”
And what about those wedding bells? “I definitely want to do it sooner than later,” Lindsay said, “but we’re going to get to know each other at the same time.” When Iaconetti asked if they would agree to a televised wedding (assuming ABC offered it as an option), Lindsay replied, “Honestly, I’m not thinking about the wedding because I’m like, ‘Are we gonna make it?’ which I honestly think we will. I just want us to get to know each other better.”
From the 20 Bachelor and 13 Bachelorette seasons, only a few relationships have lasted. Season 13 Bachelor Jason Mesnick famously broke up with his original pick, Melissa Rycroft, during their After the Rose special, then asked out runner-up Molly Malaney a few moments later. They married in 2010 and now have a daughter, Riley Anne. Season 17’s Sean Lowe and Catherine Giudici are still together too, and have a little boy named Samuel.
Of the Bachelorettes, season one’s Trista and Ryan Sutter are still together, even after her health scare earlier this summer. Season seven’s Ashley Hebert and JP Rosenbaum are also still rocking, along with season nine’s Desiree Hartsock and Chris Siegfried, season 11’s Kaitlyn Bristowe and Shawn Booth, and season 12’s JoJo Fletcher and Jordan Rodgers.
