Rachel Lindsay may have already confirmed she gets engaged at the end of the upcoming season of ‘The Bachelorette,’ but host Chris Harrison told HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY that she nearly ruined her shot at love. Watch the video and find out how!
So how exactly did Rachel Lindsay nearly ruin her shot at love while filming The Bachelorette? Well, it had a lot to do with her accomplishments. “Honestly, the beauty of the show — I think one of the reasons why it stays so relevant, and it’s so successful after 15 years is, you know, Rachel’s not the same as Kaitlyn [Bristowe]. She’s not the same as JoJo [Fletcher]. She’s not the same as Nick [Viall], or anybody. They bring their own characters, characteristics, baggage, history, you know — defense mechanisms, and as a host and a producer, you have to go and figure out what that is. What makes her tick? And what is she looking for? Why is she here? Why has it not been working?” host Chris Harrison told HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY.
He then continued, “And for Rachel, she’s so accomplished and smart, and she’s educated, and professional, and a lawyer. But what makes her a great lawyer, are kind of big stumbling blocks for trying to find love. She’s very controlling, and you know, she’s very methodical, and she’s very detail-oriented. But sometimes you have to take your hand off the wheel and allow love to happen. And that’s not her thing — she wants to fix it, and make it work. And I’m like, ‘You can’t make love work.’ That’s not how it goes, so that was a challenge for her.”
Fortunately, Rachel’s accomplishments didn’t affect her too much, because earlier today — May 18 — she confirmed she’s engaged and “very much in love!” Click here to see more pics from Season 13 of The Bachelorette!
