Just like Fight Club, the number one rule about The Bachelorette is that you don’t talk about The Bachelorette once it’s done filming. Maybe that’s not entirely true, but now that it’s down to the final men, one of whom is going to be Rachel’s fiancé, it’s hard not to wonder what their lives are like now. This is particularly true when it comes to Bryan, who’s continued to make an impression on Rachel throughout the season. So is Bryan single after The Bachelorette?
If he is, that means Rachel doesn’t pick him in the end and he definitely doesn’t put a ring on it. But if he isn’t, that means he either got to propose to Rachel and she said yes, or none of that happened and he moved on pretty quickly. I’d be willing to bet money that the latter option isn’t true, but whether or not Bryan is still single after The Bachelorette is definitely up for debate. If you look to Team Peter fans, who seem to use Bryan’s Instagram photos as their own personal forums, they’re insistent on the idea that Bryan and Rachel don’t end up together
But if you look at a couple of the photos Rachel and Bryan have each taken separately since filming ended, it’s entirely possible that they end up together and that Bryan isn’t single after The Bachelorette. He is, after all, the first contestant this season to admit to falling in love with her, so that’s kind of a big deal.
The last time Bryan posted an Instagram photo of himself getting even remotely romantic with anyone, it was in November 2016, when he attended a wedding with someone he looked very comfortable cozying up to. But after that, it looks like he was single going into Season 13 of The Bachelorette. And regardless of whether or not he makes it to the final two, he definitely makes it far. Far enough that if Bryan isn’t with Rachel, he has to be single right now.
The last photo Bryan posted on Instagram before his account went stagnant while he was on the show was on February 15 for his birthday. He didn’t post again until May 17, which leaves a lot of space in there for filming The Bachelorette and competing pretty far on the show, if not all the way to the end.
Now, the question isn’t if Bryan ends up with Rachel, but instead if Bryan is currently single, but since it’s clear that he makes it pretty far, the only way Bryan’s not single is if Rachel picks him in the end. There’s very little room for him to have gotten attached to anyone after filming. So if you believe in true reality TV love (which does exist!), Bryan could very well be off the market and on his way to wedded bliss with Rachel.
