15 Signs You Were Too Worried About Peter to Care About Rachel & Bryan’s Engagement

If you were expecting Rachel to walk away from tonight’s Bachelorette finale engaged to Peter, I feel your pain. I know after sitting through two-and-a-half hours of excruciating Peter drama, it was hard to take Rachel and Bryan’s engagement seriously. Here are 15 signs you were too worried about Peter to even care about Rachel’s engagement.

1. You came into the finale thinking Peter still had a chance

2. Things weren’t getting any lighter between Peter and Rachel, but you were holding out hope

3. As Rachel and Peter were having the breakup talk, you were in denial that a breakup was happening

4. You watched them kiss and thought, “This might not be over”

5. Rachel refused to say goodbye, so you took that as a good sign

6. Chris Harrison brought Peter out on stage with Rachel and you were still questioning whether they’d actually broken up

7. You did the math and figured out that if Peter was live on stage with Rachel, that meant they were probably really over

8. You sensed the tension between Rachel and Peter, and you felt like you were watching your parents get divorced

9. Peter was all nervous and teary-eyed, and you were just like

10. Rachel told Peter she’s living her best life, and you could see the hurt in his eyes

11. Peter said he walked past Rachel’s eyelashes on the floor for two days after their breakup and your heart officially broke

12. The show wasted no time moving on to Bryan’s proposal to Rachel

13. All the sudden they were engaged. Meanwhile you were in the corner wailing over Peter

14. Bryan and Rachel claimed they’re happy together, but you were wondering how Peter was doing backstage

15. Chris unveiled Rachel and Bryan’s People magazine cover and all you could see was the tiny picture of Peter at the bottom
