Scandals, true love and disappointment helped make Tuesday the bachelorette season finale a rollercoaster of emotions. Singles Rachel Recchia and Gabby Windey had wildly different goals for their romantic journeys.
Rachel and her choice, Tino Franco, got engaged at the end of their stay in Mexico. Unfortunately, the seeds of their love couldn’t find a bargain when they got home to the US. When their relationship dissolved, infidelity arose.
“I mean, I think everyone knows, of course, that it didn’t really work out,” Rachel said. “He cheated.”
Rachel didn’t feel bad for too long, though, when the Aven Jones, whom she kicked to the curb in front of Tino, made a surprise appearance.
“I was wondering if you might want to get out of here and catch up?” he asked Rachel.
“I would not want anything else.” she replied
The two left the stage as host Jesse Palmer and Tino sat in shock.
“I don’t know where they’re going,” Jesse said. “This is gone [Tino] and I’m in a tricky situation.”
Viewers loved all the drama they got from Rachel’s finale. Gabby’s journey was a little more famous. She is engaged to Erich Schwer and they are still together.
Just over two hours into the finale, Jesse revealed who would be the next bachelor, Zach Shallcross. Zach was one of this season’s finalists of the bachelorette until he voluntarily left after a disastrous fantasy suite date with Rachel.
The overwhelming response on Twitter was negative. Many fans believe that Zach is too boring to be a leading man for the franchise. While Zach may be boring, the few women we met from the upcoming season seemed very memorable. And while Zach’s debut as the new bachelor disappointed viewers, at least Jesse is excited for him.
“I couldn’t be more excited for you,” Jesse said. “I think it’s time to find a wife for this man… He deserves it!”
