If we’ve learned anything from that one episode of Friends where Ross made a list, pro and con lists are almost never a good idea when it comes to dating.
However, dating four guys at once is also not typically recommended…unless you’re the star of The Bachelorette. So when E! News’ Zuri Hall asked Rachel Lindsay to give us a list of pros and cons for the guys she’s currently dating on screen, she happily obliged, starting with Mr. First Impression Rose himself.
“Bryan, you know, he was the first impression rose, so we’ve had a strong connection from the beginning. So that was the strength,” Lindsay says in the video above. “The bad side, or the con, would be that he told me that his last relationship, the reason that it didn’t work is that [s]he didn’t get along with the mom.”
Of course, that’s an issue when Rachel’s about to head to Bryan’s hometown to meet his family.
“So here I come waltzing in, the next girlfriend, and it’s a little nerve-wracking. And the odds are against me, because I’m saying, hey, I’m dating these other men too.”
As for Peter—AKA the internet’s favorite Bachelorette dreamboat—Rachel says they also had a strong connection from the beginning, but “I feel the walls up,” she says. “I feel him being hesitant, and so that’s the con of it.”
Dean’s rocky relationship with his non-traditional family is what’s giving Rachel pause about him, but she also reveals that she calls him her “beautiful surprise.” “He has just surprised me along this entire journey, and we have something really strong.”
And finally, there’s Eric. “We just have such good energy and it’s so positive,” she says. “But the con is that he’s never brought a girl home. So here I come, with cameras and everything…”
This is going to be awkward, but hopefully a fun kind of awkward?
The Bachelorette airs Mondays at 8 p.m. on ABC.
