Gabi Elnicki is one of three bachelorettes who will receive a Fantasy Suite date with Zach Shallcross on The Bachelor's 27th season.

Gabi, a 25-year-old brunette beauty from Pittsford, VT, is competing against Ariel Frenkel and Kaity Biggar for Zach's heart as one of his Final 3 bachelorettes.


Gabi was shown spiraling with insecurity earlier in The Bachelor season, but she has since gained confidence and momentum with Zach.

Zach got to see Gabi's quirky and silly side during their first one-on-one date in London, and he gushed about her sense of humor and how he felt "butterflies" around the bachelorette.

In turn, Gabi said she could picture Zach being in her life forever. Zach apparently gave Gabi the "safety and comfort" she needs in a relationship, and she called The Bachelor star "a gem."

Gabi has worried she's "too much" for Zach, but Zach assured her that's not the case by giving her a group date rose in Budapest, Hungary, before hometown dates.

Zach then met the bachelorette's family, and their approval of Zach gave Gabi permission in her heart to fall in love. The family visit convinced Gabi of her strong feelings for Zach, but she wasn't able to tell the Bachelor that she was falling in love with him.

Gabi said the process was very difficult for her but Zach was "so worth" the hardship and she hoped it would all end with a ring on her finger.

"I just selfishly want more time with him," Gabi cried after her hometown date.

Until viewers find out if Gabi receives one of Zach's Final 2 roses on The Bachelor's 27th season, let's learn some information about this bachelorette right now.

Below is a list of nine facts Reality TV World has compiled about Gabriella "Gabi" Elnicki.

Gabi comes from a very loving family

The bachelorette's parents Stephanie and Kevin have a healthy marriage that has been the blueprint for the kind of love Gabi hopes to find.

Gabi is so ready for marriage, in fact, she already has her dream wedding venue picked out on Lake Como in Italy, so hopefully Zach would be game for a destination wedding.

Gabi is very close to her older sister Chloe, older brother Evan, and her little brother Braeden.


It takes time for Gabi to open up and come out of her shell

Gabi won't be the loudest girl in a room or particularly outgoing right off the bat.

But once she feels comfortable with a man, Gabi will show that she's adventurous, loyal and driven. Gabi also enjoys traveling, as she recently spent time in Amsterdam, as well as a good tailgate.

The Bachelor bachelorette dreams of turning her passion for fitness into a job

Gabi hopes to own her own Pilates studio one day.

But for the time being, she is the Senior Account Executive at Calculated Hire in Houston, TX.

Gabi has held this position since June 2022, and before that, she was an account executive for the same company for two years.

Gabi began working for the company as a business recruiter in July 2019.

Gabi earned a college degree in marketing

Gabi graduated from University of Mississippi in 2019 with her Bachelor of Business Administration degree.

While at Ole Miss, she was a member of the Pi Beta Phi fraternity for women.

She also was a member of the National Society of Collegiate Scholars.

The Bachelor bachelorette knows what she wants in a man

Gabi's future husband will be honest, outdoorsy, and will always put her first.

Gabi didn't feel confident in her last relationship, which lasted for almost two years. She struggled to be herself and show her true colors.

Gabi therefore hoped Zach would be different. She even came up with their "couple" name on social media when the show premiered: "Gach" or "Zabi."

Gabi claims she's "spicier than your average buffalo wing"

Gabi may have compared herself to a buffalo wing, but she has a serious dietary restriction.

Gabi is allergic to shellfish, so you'll never catch her munching on lobster, shrimp or clams.

Gabi has revealed she struggles with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder

"I have ADHD... Emotions hit you really hard and fast when you have ADHD," Gabi shared on the February 7 episode of the "Bachelor Happy Hour" podcast.

Gabi said she's "totally comfortable talking about" her disorder and she's "very aware" it.

"But there's a lot of emotional regulation that you have to work on, and that's something I've been working on for years," Gabi noted.

"When you're in an environment that's so overstimulating, it can be really difficult to find that regulation of your emotions."


Gabi said that explains why she seemed "all over the place" with a "roller coaster of emotions" when she wasn't receiving enough quality time with Zach.

Gabi had appeared frazzled and stressed prior to her one-on-one date with Zach in London, but once they got to talk, she did an apparent "180" in her mindset and behavior.

"There's a lot of comparison you're doing, and there's a lot of sensitivity you're feeling. And on top of that, there's distractions of the environment just in itself," Gabi explained.

Gabi said she's "grateful" to have "the tools" that she needs to regulate her emotions in a tense atmosphere, adding, "[I have] the therapy and the psychiatrists to teach me those tools... but it was a lot in the beginning."

Gabi went through "a pretty bad breakup" before going on The Bachelor

"Before I went on the show, I had actually gone through a pretty bad breakup. I dated this guy for a few years, and it just wasn't the most healthy relationship," Gabi said on the "Bachelor Happy Hour" podcast.

The man apparently hurt Gabi and left her wary of falling in love again.

"And so the breakup was really hard on me. I felt like I had invested a lot of my time and effort and energy into it. And coming out of it, I was heartbroken. My friends saw me like that, and they were like, 'Gabi, you have so much to give,'" she shared.

Gabi said she had invested a lot of time into therapy, bettering herself, and healing after that relationship came to an end.

"I knew what I wanted, and I was able to really discover that through therapy, of what worthwhile loved looked like to me," Gabi noted.

Gabi said she was "definitely nervous" to compete for Zach given her heart was recently broken, but she shared, "You can't just stop trying in life. So I put myself out there."

Gabi's good friends nominated her for The Bachelor

"[My friends] nominated me to go on the show. They were like, 'You'll be perfect for this, you have to at least try.' And so I was like, 'Okay, I'm not sure,'" Gabi revealed on the "Bachelor Happy Hour" podcast.

Gabi said she had watched "a few seasons" of The Bachelor franchise but she certainly wouldn't call herself "a diehard Bachelor fan."

Gabi's sister Chloe, however, loves The Bachelor, and so she was very supportive of Gabi going on the show.

"She was like, 'Gabi, you've got to do it!'... and couldn't believe it when I got the call," Gabi said of her sister.

"[Producers] were like, 'Hey, we want you to be on the show,' and I was like, 'Hey, what?!' I wasn't expecting that, but I'm so, so grateful that I went through with it."
