While many fans urged Rachel to take the position as the After the Final Rose host, she declined but admitted both she and her husband, Bryan Abasolo, wanted Emmanuel Ocho to take the spot.
“For AFTR, Bryan and I both talked about this – we think Emmanuel Acho would be fantastic,” Rachel said last month.
She added that he is “very outspoken about racial injustice, for social justice, and has pretty much been the person who said, ‘I can have these uncomfortable conversations, and people trust it.’”
“Who better to lead it? He’s someone who’s not involved with the franchise, no ties, no bias – I think it’d be great,” she gushed.
