Season 13 of The Bachelorette has definitely had its ups and downs. There have been tears, heartbreak, and family drama. However, one thing has always remained up: my view of Peter. He has been a constant during Rachel Lindsay's journey to find love, and I'm not mad about it. There are so many clues Peter wins The Bachelorette, you just have to know where to look. If you can't wait until the finale, you can binge watch the whole season on Hulu and look for these 12 low-key clues.
The Bachelorette finale is August 7, but Rachel has been throwing out signals that Peter is the one for a long time. Fans were so excited for Rachel's season, and have not been disappointed. She has been equally loved by fans and the contestants on the show. She breaks their hearts, and they legit still only have nice things to say about her. Now that's a talent.
Rachel will say yes (hopefully) to one lucky man's proposal (Peter's, probably) and we can move on to more important things, like trying to figure out who Dean falls in love with on Bachelor in Paradise. Until then, here are 12 clues that Peter will take home the final rose.
1. He had the first one-on-one date with Rachel.
It's not the first impression rose, but equally awesome. He was the first guy Rachel chose to spend time with alone.
2. Rachel's dog, Copper, loves him.
You can't marry a guy unless your dog likes him. That's just a fact. On their first date, Rachel and Peter attended a dog pool party with Copper and had the best time. If that's not the building blocks to an everlasting relationship, I don't know what is.
3. They both bonded over their gap.
Rachel and Peter both have adorable gaps in their teeth. They've talked about it, bonded over it, and would make adorable gap-toothed children.
4. 52 percent of viewers want Rachel to pick Peter, according to a GoldDerby poll.
If you're not into emotions, how about cold, hard numbers? 52 percent of viewers want Rachel to pick Peter, according to GoldDerby. That's more than half of fans. Rachel is a smart girl, I think she would go with the majority.
5. Peter is a fan favorite.
Everyone wants to be with a likable guy. I'm just saying...
6. The producers are trying to make it look like he's not going to win.
I'm not believing that "To be continued..." nonsense they threw at us on July 24. I think the show is trying to make it look like Peter and Rachel won't work on purpose to throw us off.
7. Rachel's family called Peter "the winner."
This just seals the deal for me. Her family's approval is so, so important.
8. Rachel thinks Bryan is too good to be true.
Guess what? When you think something is too good to be true, it usually is. That's realism for you people. Bryan has all the moves and lays them on thick with Rachel. I think that deters her from trusting him. You can't have a relationship without trust.
9. Eric has never been in a real relationship.
Eric is the quintessential underdog. I like Eric. Truly, I do. I just don't think it's his time in the sun quite yet.
10. They have amazing chemistry.
All they do is hug, kiss, and hold hands. Plus, that steamy hot tub make out session was pretty fiancé-like.
11. Peter is so, so handsome.
Looks aren't everything. However, if you're committing the rest of your life to someone, might as well be someone you like to look at.
12. Rachel and Peter share the same values.
They are both family-oriented people. Having the same values is key to a lasting relationship. I think Peter and Rachel have what it takes.
If these clues aren't enough for you, I invite you to open your eyes and look harder. I actually think you're in denial. I get it, I want Peter to be my boyfriend, too.
