“The Bachelorette” had its painfully long three-hour finale last night that ended with (spoiler alert!) contestant Bryan Abasolo putting a ring on Bachelorette Rachel Lindsay’s finger.
It’s safe to say people were disappointed in “The Bachelorette” outcome.

Some think he only won by default, believing Rachel really loved runner-up Peter, but his refusal to get engaged became the deal breaker.

A ring, in fact, did mean a thing to Rachel, so Bryan won.
So why is everyone hating on Bryan? Well, because the 37-year-old Colombian chiropractor from Miami, was considered fake by many viewers.

Even Rachel’s parents didn’t fall for his “charm.”
I'd like to just point out that her parents didn't even trust Bryan!! He's a rat once you see past the charm! #TheBacheloretteFinale

Some even thought his fakeness is a regional characteristic.
Bryan is from Miami. Don't trust him gurrlll #theBachelorette

Major red flag.
But, really, the whole phony thing stemmed from Bryan using his Latino lover charm on Rachel, romancing her in Spanish any chance he got.
Bryan is using that Spanish charm to sway her, I can see right through the BS

But most people were quick to call it out.

He even tried it on Ellen!
The Ellen Show
Smooth, Bryan. Reeeal smooth. ?
But Rachel fell for it. She fell for it HARD. Just watch.
Girl turns to mush when he drops that Español on her, and he knows it. He even got the First Impression Rose!
For many, his charm and super romantic ways came off as trying way too hard, especially when it came to their PDA.
And alarms went off for viewers also after he professed his love to her very early in and said he loved her family after only spending a couple of hours with them. It all felt too soon, like he was just saying “the right thing” to woo her.
Still, a few applaud Bryan for forcing America to read subtitles.
Listen as much as I don't love Bryan I ain't mad at a Latino making this finale bilingual #TheBachelorette

But others think he needs to brush up on his Spanish sexy talk before doing that on national TV.

While people have accused Bryan of being a typical Latino playboy, some people came to his defense saying his romantic ways are a cultural trait and not just for the cameras.

Latino men are generally very romantic. Bryan isn't fake. I like Peter but he needs to step up. #TheBacheloretteFinale

Either way, Bryan walked away with a fiancé, 15 minutes of fame and Rachel’s all about it.
