It was Gabby Windey’s turn for some turmoil during the Monday, August 15, episode of The BacheloretteAs she and Rachel RecchiaTheir finalists were confirmed.
31-year-old ICU nurse started the episode with a one on one date Nate. While she has strong feelings for the single dad, Gabby didn’t want to waste his time after realizing that she wasn’t ready to take on the role as a stepmother to his 6-year-old daughter.
“I’m terrified of not just being a mom, but being bad at it,” Gabby said through tears. “I see you and I know that you’re such a good dad. And I know she’s so lucky to have you, really. She has to be the luckiest girl in the world and I know, like, meeting her — if I were to — I wouldn’t have a choice but to fall in love because I know how much she’s like you. … Every time I see you, my feelings get deeper and deeper and it’s just so hard because it’s you.”
While Nate was upset, he told Gabby that she will be a “great mom” when the time comes. “I know somebody is gonna be lucky to feel like you picked them and vice versa. Just make sure you choose somebody who picks you, OK?” he said amid his emotional exit.
Rachel’s one-on-one date had a different vibe, with Zach admitting he was “falling in love” with the pilot before securing the rose. Gabby was good company during the day portion of her group dating, but she was caught off guard. Jesse PalmerShe told her that LoganAfter testing positive for COVID-19, he was removed from the show.
“He’s doing fine, but because we’re trying to take a real abundance of caution for yourself [and] for the rest of the guys, we have to cancel tonight’s cocktail party,” the host said. “I know how important it was and how much we’re looking forward to it with, obviously, hometowns on the horizon. You doing OK?”
Gabby noted that she was “looking forward” to the evening and hoped Logan gets “better fast.”
“I feel terrible for Logan. But mainly I want his health and his safety to be OK,” she told the ABC cameras. “But I also truly feel bad for the other guys. There’s a rose on the table tonight. So I’m sure that the guys are probably going to be really shocked.”
Gabby felt only comfortable giving out three roses during the rose ceremony. Spencerhome and consolidating her last three.
Rachel was able to go on a group date with her friend Tino, Aven, EthanAnd Tyler. Tino spiralled after Wildwood, New Jersey resident got the group date rose.
“I’m at a loss for words. I don’t f—king get it. I hit every point today. [I]It was one of the most memorable moments. I mean, we literally were just talking about, like, she feels so strongly for me and I just can’t see something connecting on a deeper level than that,” he said before one of his fellow suitors called him a “baby back bitch.”
During a chat with a producer, Tino added, “This is a f—king joke. … It’s just gutting to even think about.”
“It really makes me wonder if I am not seeing things clearly,” he continued in a confessional. “I don’t think she knows how deeply I feel. The fear is that I’m falling really hard for this girl and she’s not — and that never has occurred to me until tonight.”
At the rose ceremony, Rachel gave out two roses (in addition to Zach’s one-on-one rose and Tyler’s group date rose).
