I'm on Linux, but this should be the same on Mac.  Not sure what you
mean by bash directory.  On .config/ranger/rifle.conf (this is what
tells ranger how to open files) I have:

mime ^text,  label editor = gvim -- "$@"
mime ^text,  label pager  = "$PAGER" -- "$@"
!mime ^text, label editor, ext xml|csv|tex|py|pl|rb|sh|php = "$EDITOR" -- "$@"
!mime ^text, label editor, ext xml|csv|tex|py|pl|rb|sh|php = "$PAGER" -- "$@"

You probably need to adjust these lines in your rifle.conf file.
Setting EDITOR variable in my shell (e.g., in .bash_profile) did it
for me and should work in Mac too.  Check your EDITOR variable like
the following:

[psychopad:~/.config/ranger]% echo $EDITOR
