10 Reasons Why ‘Bachelorette’ Winner Bryan Is the Most Annoying Person You’ve Never Met

The finale of Rachel Lindsay’s season of The Bachelorette was…emotional, to say the least. Fan favorite Peter Kraus realized that he couldn’t compromise his beliefs about proposing, and Rachel ultimately ended up with remaining contestant Bryan Abasolo. Bryan hasn’t exactly been popular with viewers this season, and the reaction to his proposal proved that Bachelor Nation’s opinions haven’t really changed. 

What exactly is it about Bryan that turns people off? It turns out there were way too many factors that rubbed us the wrong way. So, while I wipe up the puddle of tears I’ve cried over Peter, here are the top 10 reasons why Bryan just happens to be the most annoying guy you’ve never met. 

1. He decided it was cool to make out with Rachel on night one

Note: About 65 percent of my issues with Bryan have to do with his kissing. 

2. Every other kiss looked like it involved a lot of saliva 

Excuse me—I need to brush my teeth, rinse and repeat about 100 times.

3. He wouldn’t stop bragging about kissing Rachel when the guys were on Ellen

You do not try to steal a mic from Ellen. Like, ever. 

4. He might’ve once had this haircut

ICYMI, Bryan supposedly appeared on another reality dating show in 2004. I think this photo speaks for itself.

5. He said things like this

Really? That’s all you need? Okay

6. He bonded with Rachel over their private school pasts in an odd way

All I wanted was an explanation of why Bryan’s mom thought private school would stop him from wanting an earring. Instead, I got Bryan weirdly fetishizing Rachel in a school uniform.

7. He thought it wouldn’t be awkward to include Rachel in this hug

This is basically Bryan saying, “My mom has scared away so many girls that I need you to feel her love right away. You know, just in case.”

8. He could be basic AF 

Psst, this is all on ABC’s budget. Don’t expect fancy watches out of the blue anymore.

9. He definitely didn’t see Rachel’s family’s interrogation coming

His meeting with Rachel’s family was a hint that maybe it’s not just us feeling his sketchy vibes. 

10. He’s quite the attention hog 

Whether it was making sure he had a say on Ellen or re-proposing during the live finale, Bryan sure loves that camera. 

Congrats to Rachel for seeming very happy with this final outcome. Let’s just say that I definitely wouldn’t be giving out my final rose to Bryan.
