The Bachelorette season 13 couple Rachel Lindsay and Bryan Abasolo got married after the show and live a happy life together. The fans got introduced to Rachel on The Bachelor season 21, which was Nick Viall’s season. Then, just a few months after appearing on the show, Rachel became the first-ever Black lead of a Bachelorette season. The 32-year-old attorney from Dallas, Texas got a second chance at finding love in the series, but this time on her own terms. From the very first episode, there was something there between Rachel and Bryan… so much so that Rachel gave Bryan the famous first impression rose.
It was a historic moment for the Bachelor franchise as a whole to finally cast a Black lead for a season. A lot of Black contestants struggled to find love on the show. Moreover, they were generally not given the same chances as the non-Black contestants. By casting a Black lead, the series became a more inclusive platform for people of different races, ethnicities, and backgrounds. In 2020, the producers announced Matt James as the next Bachelor, which means that the franchise will finally have a Black male lead as well.
It was clear from the very beginning of The Bachelorette season 13 that Rachel Lindsay and Bryan Abasolo were destined for each other. Ever since getting engaged on the show in 2017, Rachel and Bryan have taken their time to build their respective careers and get to know their relationship even better. In 2019, the couple got married in Cancun, Mexico. At the moment, Rachel is juggling quite a few media gigs. For one, she makes appearances on Extra and hosts the show Ghosted: Love Gone Missing on MTV. Rachel also co-hosts the official Bachelor Nation podcast, which is called Bachelor Happy Hour.
In turn, Bryan Abasolo has mostly focused on his career as a chiropractor after finding love on The Bachelorette. Due to his large following on Instagram, he also occasionally partners with different brands for marketing opportunities and sponsorships. All in all, there’s no denying that Bryan and Rachel are successful at everything that they commit to, regardless of whether it has to do with their personal lives or careers. It’s also great for the fans to see a couple that started on the show still being happily together like these two.
Now that The Bachelorette season 16 has begun, there’s a brand-new batch of contestants looking for love and hoping to find what Rachel and Bryan have. Hopefully, the series will have a successful couple this year.
The Bachelorette season 16 airs Tuesdays at 8 pm ET/PT on ABC.
