But online, another conversation took hold: former contestant Eric’s new look … specifically, that beard.
Last night, Rachel saw a newly bearded Eric for the first time since letting him go months ago. Both she and host Chris Harrison commented on how dapper he looked. Chris said that Eric looked “sharp,” and Rachel said that he looked “phenomenal.”
Twitter blew up with fans saying that Eric grew a “revenge beard,” aka a beard grown following a breakup to make an ex jealous.
It's nice to see Eric and his revenge beard. #TheBacheloretteFinale
