Rachel Lindsay's season of The Bachelorette wraps up tonight, and if you're a little skeptical about who will receive the beautiful lawyer's final rose (please don't let it be Bryan) you're not the only one. In an interview, the franchise's host Chris Harrison offered his two cents on whether he thinks Rachel and her new man will make it for the long haul.

"Life's not so simple, I don't know," Harrison told Glamour magazine. "It's so easy to sit on the sidelines and be that Monday morning quarterback and go, ‘No! They’ll never make it!’ It’s hard to make it. I'm the product of a divorce and my marriage failed, so I’m the first guy who's not going to be throwing rocks. I thought Ben and Lauren would make it, and they didn’t. I’m sad. I hope Rachel does. That’s all I can say. I’m happy for them now, God bless ‘em, and I will do everything in my power to help them."
Regardless of who gets Rachel's final rose, we hope they end up with a Kaitlyn and Shawn or JoJo and Jordan relationship. She deserves it! And if Peter ends up being the new Bachelor, we know plenty of ladies who would have no problem signing up for that season.
