"Erich is a handsome guy whose quiet confidence is hard to ignore," according to ABC.
Erich met Gabby's quirky grandfather on their first one-on-one date of the season, and he really shined during his hometown date in New Jersey, when Gabby got to see some of his deepest layers.
"I felt so close to [Erich's family]," Gabby revealed. "Today with Erich was one of the best days I've had so far. Seeing him with his family really made my feelings so much deeper for him."
Erich had told Gabby that he's "maybe falling in love" with her, and Gabby opened up about how she reciprocated those feelings.
"I think I've always wanted to be with someone like you but just never knew if it was possible. But after today, I do finally feel comfortable in saying that I am falling in love with you," Gabby told the suitor.
Gabby gushed about how she'd never forget Erich's hometown and that date may have changed the rest of her life.
