Rachel's 'Bachelorette' Season Is Almost Over

by Chrissy Bobic

Even though literally every season of The Bachelorette promises viewers to be "the most dramatic yet," Season 13 has a done a good (bad?) job in keeping things pretty complicated for Rachel and the other men on the show. But now that most of the drama is finally out of the way (hopefully), it’s time to wonder how close we are to the end of this thing: when is Rachel's Bachelorette season finale?

Season 13 is more than halfway over and when it comes back on July 10, it will already be at Episode 7. After that, fans will see hometown dates, then overnights, followed by a break for July 31 when the Men Tell All special will likely air, leaving the Season 13 finale of The Bachelorette for Aug. 7. As of now, there is no confirmed date yet for the season finale, but going on what the typical process is for the second half of the season, that’s the date we’re likely looking at. Which means that after the July 10 episode of The Bachelorette, things are going to get pretty serious pretty fast.

Even now, with just six men remaining, it’s already getting down to crunch time. As a whole, the season has been a pretty wild ride, from DeMario’s ex/current girlfriend (that one’s still dicey) showing up to Lee and Kenny’s multi-episode feud, Rachel has not had it easy. But she’s also managed to find some truly great guys mixed in there.

In the past few episodes, Rachel has been eliminating guys left and right, sending men home during dates as well as the rose ceremonies. So much so that it’s suddenly become so much more obvious that Season 13 of The Bachelorette is coming to an end, and it’s coming fast. With just six men left, those hometown and fantasy suite dates are going to fly by pretty quickly before the Season 13 finale.

The end is sneaking up on fans so much that it’s hard to believe that it’s already time to decide if you’re Team Peter or Team Bryan in all of this. I mean, I don’t know if those are the final two men standing at the end, but right now they seem like some pretty strong contenders in Rachel’s eyes. Since The Bachelorette Season 13 finale will likely air on Aug. 7, we don’t have much longer to wait to see who Rachel picks, but with the remaining contestants, it doesn’t look like that’s going to be an easy job for her to make.
