There are only three suitors left on Season 13 of The Bachelorette. Rachel Lindsay is considering marrying Bryan, Eric, and Peter. For the ninth episode, she brings all three home to Dallas to meet her family. Hours before the episode airs, Rachel spoke to Lauren Zima of Entertainment Tonight. When Zima asks Rachel how her family feels about her being on The Bachelorette, Rachel said, “After seeing me this season, and how I presented myself, made them believers.”
Zima asks Rachel if America will get to see Rachel’s father on The Bachelorette, especially since “we didn’t get to meet him on The Bachelor.” Rachel says, “He’s very supportive of it, I’ll start there. Like I said, he was skeptical in the beginning but he’s very supportive of me on this journey. As far as he being on the show, I don’t know,” she says with her TV smile, “We’ll have to wait and see.” Zima doesn’t let the topic die. “Why was that? Why wasn’t he on The Bachelor?” Rachel’s smile dims a little when she explains, “Due to the job that he has, being a federal judge, dealing with a lot of high profile cases, it wasn’t in his best interest to appear on the show at that time.” Zima says, “Could be an intimidating guy, okay, okay.” The Bachelorette airs Mondays at 8pm on ABC.
