The 'Bachelorette' Rachel Lindsey left her final rose for chiropractor Bryan Abasolo, whose proposal she accepted during Monday's aired finale.
"I am the best version of myself when I am with you," he said before dropping to one knee. "You are so easy and effortless to love, and I just want to love you the rest of my life."
"It feels good to have him with me and by my side," Lindsay said.
Lindsey arrived at her decision after sending personal trainer Eric Bigger and business owner Peter Kraus home.
"I'll always love you," Bigger told Lindsey. "That's just the truth."
The parting between Lindsey and Kraus was a difficult one. During their final date, Kraus explained to Lindsey he was reluctant to pop the question, despite her wishes.
"While things didn't end the way that I hoped, I have you to thank for the feelings I did have. I wish you nothing but the best and I really just want happiness for you, that's all."
The 'Bacherlorette' finale left many angered, who questioned Lindsey's priorities.
Rachel is choosing a ring over a man worth her time. She is a disgrace. I am also a disgrace for getting this heated about the bachelorette— danielle🌻 (@Hotz_Stuff) August 8, 2017
Lindsey was the first African-American to be featured on the 'Bachelor'/'Bachelorette' franchise.
"The pressures I feel about being a black woman and what that is and how...I don't even want to talk about it," Lindsay said with tears welling. "I get pressure from so many different ways being in this position."
