The Bachelorette finale has come and gone.
Rachel Lindsay chose Bryan Abasolo, following a brutal breakup with Peter Kraus.
Peter is a fan-favorite to be the next Bachelor, but there was another breakup during that finale: when Rachel Lindsay parted ways with Eric Bigger.
Eric Bigger is handsome and charming and made more than a few fans swoon.
He wasn’t nearly as polarizing as Peter and Bryan, so he got less attention as things got more heated.
But, clearly, Eric struck the fancy of plenty of fans.
Some of them want him to be the next Bachelor.
Some of them want him to forget reality television and come date them.
And some … just want to admire his revenge beard.
Some fans come later than others
Sometimes people don’t realize how much they admire someone until they see that person reach a low point. It’s true.
And then there’s thirst
There are a lot of these and we couldn’t pick just one.
Eric’s revenge beard got some mentions
Honestly, we think that it was more that he grew out his hair just a little.
That is DIRECT
Sliding into those DMs …
Some had been waiting all season
Maybe they figured that Rachel didn’t deserve Eric.
She has eyes for Eric
This is the sort of tweet for which emojis were made.
