Bachelorette Spoilers: Who is Gabby Windey's winner and Rachel Recchia's final pick? Who did they pick as their Final 2 bachelors? Are 'The Bachelorette' stars engaged? (SPOILERS)
By Elizabeth Kwiatkowski, 08/21/2022
New Bachelorette spoilers have emerged and revealing how Gabby Windey and Rachel Recchia's The Bacheloretteseason ends -- including new spoilers about who Rachel and Gabby picked as their winners, who ended up as Gabby and Rachel's Final 2 runner-ups, and if The Bachelorette stars are engaged.
Rachel's Final 4 bachelors are Aven Jones, a 28-year-old sales executive from San Diego, CA; Tino Franco, a 28-year-old general contractor from Playa Del Rey, CA; Tyler Norris, a 25-year-old small business owner from Wildwood, NJ; and Zach Shallcross, a 25-year-old tech executive from Anaheim Hills, CA.
Gabby's remaining suitors are Erich Schwer, a 29-year-old real estate analyst from Bedminster, NJ; Johnny DePhillipo, a 25-year-old realtor from Palm Beach Gardens, FL; and Jason Alabaster, a 30-year-old investment banker from Santa Monica, CA.
Based on a preview for the rest of The Bachelorette season that recently aired, Zach is falling in love with Rachel, and Rachel thinks Aven embodies everything she's been asking for in a partner.
"I really can't imagine my life without you," Rachel says about one bachelor as footage is shown of Rachel and Aven kissing.
And Gabby gushes about how she's always wanted to be with someone like Erich but didn't know it was possible.
Gabby says she finally knows what it feels like to be loved and her dreams are coming true.
But Gabby points out how if things seem too good to be true, they probably are too good to be true.
Tino then appears to struggle as he watches Rachel kiss and connect with other men, and Rachel cries about how she feels "conflicted" and confused.
As Aven breaks down into tears, Rachel admits she was "blindsided" by one suitor.
Gabby also appears to make a statement by walking away from Johnny on the beach.
Carbone initially reported that Aven Jones was eliminated in third place following Rachel's overnight Fantasy Suite dates, meaning Zach Shallcross and Tino Franco were Rachel's Final 2 bachelors.
But according to Carbone's August 11 blog post, Rachel's Final 2 bachelors were actually Aven and Tino.
Carbone reported that Zach finished in third place and essentially self-eliminated.
A preview shows Jesse telling Zach Shallcross that he must tell Rachel the truth after their overnight Fantasy Suite date.
"Whether it's him telling Rachel he's not ready, or that it's too serious and he's not there yet with her... I don't know his wording. But that convo with Jesse [shown in a preview] is a pre-cursor to Zach telling Rachel something that eliminates him at final 3," Carbone wrote.
Gabby picks Erich Schwer as her winner and gets engaged to him
Carbone wasn't sure whom Gabby and Rachel picked as their winners -- and whether the women got engaged -- until his August 11 blog post.
According to Carbone, Gabby ended up with Erich Schwer and he in turn popped the question.
Gabby said "yes" to Erich's proposal and so the couple got engaged during the season finale.
Nate was reportedly briefly asked about the recent allegations his ex-girlfriend and another woman he also dated before The Bachelorette made against him and denied he had ever been exclusive with either woman.
Jesse recently said The Bachelorette: The Men Tell All was sure to be explosive, as well as After the Final Rose.
"I'm not ready for it. I'm gonna take some time and get myself mentally ready, but there's gonna be a lot to have to digest, go back over and clarify and get closure," Jesse explained.
"Rachel and Gabby's season is not short on drama. That is for sure," he added. [And] as you know, Men Tell All, that's going to be an absolute circus... There's gonna be a lot to discuss, a lot of very difficult conversations."
