The fantasy suites weren’t exactly a fantasy for Gabby Windey. The co-lead and Rachel RecchiaThe overnight dates with their respective bottom three aired on Monday, September 5 and Tuesday, September 6.
The ICU nurse started her time in Mexico on a high note with Erich. While the two are clearly falling in love, Gabby revealed that she wouldn’t tell anyone “I love you” until she found herself a suitor after what happened with Clayton Echard in The Bachelor. After an emotional goodbye, Erich, who was fighting for her to date johnny Y JasonHe wrote Gabby a note to meet her on the bridge.
“Our last date – day part was amazing. The night part, I couldn’t imagine it was better. And now I’m sitting here imagining the girl I’m in love with doing that with someone else, like that crushes me,” Erich said.
Gabby was visibly frustrated and revealed that the couple had this conversation in private.
“Erich expressed to me in the fantasy suite that this week he feels like he’s cheating. And now I feel like we’re repeating the conversation and I’m being pressured,” she said. “Him being like, ‘I don’t want you to have what we have with someone else,’ that’s, like, not for you to say. You’re here knowing that I could have it with someone else.”
The couple left on rocky terms, but what Erich didn’t know is that Gabby had already sent Johnny home because he wasn’t ready to propose. When she learned that Jason had similar doubts, she became angry again.
“I feel so stupid. I thought I knew [Jason], like, I really don’t,” he told the cameras. “I have tried so hard not to be reckless with other people and he was reckless with me. He never loved me, so what were we doing? It’s not even that he didn’t want a commitment, he didn’t want me. How do you keep trusting? Johnny doesn’t love me either. It’s me? I don’t know what it is in me that is so difficult to love. … What if Erich decides I’m not for him? Am I too broken for someone to love me?
Rachel, meanwhile, kicked off her week with a fun date with come, telling the sales executive that she was “falling in love” with him. During her second date with tino, he was still reeling from feeling that his family didn’t like him. The general contractor went to great lengths to try to convince her that was not the case.
“I feel like my dad doesn’t involve me that much in the relationship realm,” Tino said. “He’s not like you. They’re really skeptical of the situation… But they know me and they know, I wouldn’t be here if I didn’t see you as the future.”
When the pilot asked if his parents would be mad if they called them and told them they were engaged, Tino insisted that they “are not going to be mad,” adding, “I know they are going to change. End of story.”
Before heading to his suite, Tino told Rachel that he was “in love” with her, and she replied. “I love you too. I really do,” he said. “I’ve been waiting for this statement for so long and then all of a sudden I hear it. And does it feel so amazing to hear him say that and say it back? It’s a great moment in your life”.
However, things ended on a sour note, as zach accused Rachel of acting differently when the cameras went off during her nightly part.
“It was just me and her talking, and I felt like she just wasn’t showing her true self. Sometimes it was very fake, ”she alleged, telling him Jess Palmer that he was “shocked” by his comments, with even Rachel blaming his hesitation on their year-long age difference. “I thought I saw this future with her.”
During the rose ceremony, Zach asked to speak to Rachel. However, before fans could see their conversation, the show cut to Jesse on the Warner Bros.
“Things have been so emotional. They have been so dramatic for both Gabby and Rachel that we felt it was only right to take a moment and prepare for the shocking events that are about to unfold. Events that are going to change Rachel and Gabby’s lives forever,” said the presenter, anticipating the most “emotional” and “shocking” live finale of all time.
