The letter he read said, "Rachel was clearly in love with Peter. Bryan was runner-up. She chose him because he was willing to give her a ring. She should have chosen true love over a ring."

But Rachel wasn't having any of it.

"That was a closed chapter for me. My focus was Bryan. I chose Bryan for a reason. I didn't want to reopen things. Peter had his chance! That's the back-and-forth I was talking about."

And finally, after revealing that they're planning to marry next winter, Rachel also announced an upcoming name change:
