All the Men Rachel Lindsay Has Already Clearly Put in the Friend Zone

We’re in Week 3 of The Bachelorette, and Rachel has some great guys. She spent tonight weeding out those duds, thank God. (So long, Waboom. May I never have to hear the word “Waboom” again. No Bachelor in Paradise for you, please.)

But there are some other men this season who are perfect gentleman. They seem like great guys. They have a lot of good qualities. Unfortunately, based on Rachel’s body language and her interactions, it’s clear they aren’t going to be the last man standing.

Here are the guys Rachel has clearly already friend-zoned.

1. Jonathan

The guy freaking tickles people. The show calls him the “tickle monster.” I’m sorry, but no. No, no, no, no, no. If in a guy’s attempt to impress me, he were to grab my sides like he did with Rachel, I would have reacted on instinct, punched him and immediately sent him packing. This guy is lucky he made it as far as the friend zone.

2. Adam

Adam, you know, the guy who brought that creepy doll with him on Night 1. Need I say more? You just can’t dig yourself out of the friend zone after that move.

3. Matt

Sure, he’s fun and likable, but the guy who shows up in the costume is never really a heavy hitter. He’s just there for the good times. I like the penguin costume. Of course, I loved last season’s Alexis in her dolphin/shark getup. But Alexis will forever be dolphin girl, and Matt will forever be penguin boy. Maybe they should date?

4. Alex

Poor, Alex. The guy sang Rachel a Russian song during Week 2, and what did he get for his romantic gesture? A high five. That’s right, Rachel gave him a high five! How’s that friend zone feel?

5. Lee

I was admittedly biased against Lee from the get-go. Any guy who gets out of the limo with a guitar has already made a skeptic out of me. But Lee has only continued his downward trajectory by showing some hostility. If he doesn’t cool his jets, he might not even leave the show in the friend zone.

On the up side, so far my top picks for Rachel this season are Peter and Bryan.

Who do you think will win Rachel’s heart in Season 13?
