However, Jesse wouldn't confirm or deny whether Gabby and Rachel fell for the same guy or guys while filming The Bachelorette's nineteenth season, but he did tease that the dual leads had some "unexpected" challenges to overcome, E! News reported.
"It's not them competing for something," Jesse noted to the website, "but there were some raw, serious and honest conversations that had to take place."
It was all fun and games in the beginning considering one suitor, who made a "legendary" entrance on Night 1, doesn't really like clothes and "prefers to just bear it all," according to the host.
And Jesse also said of the limo entrances, "There were four-legged animals, two-legged animals, magic tricks, forklifts. Really, it just ran the gamut."
But as Gabby and Rachel began falling for their bachelors and vice versa, Jesse previously teased, "They encounter circumstances and situations that no Bachelorette has ever had to encounter in the past."
When announcing the women's suitors in a live TikTok event earlier this month, Jesse insisted this The Bachelorette season will be "unlike anything" viewers have "ever seen before."
One thing Bachelor Nation and fans have seemed concerned about is whether Gabby and Rachel will be pitted against each other and essentially fight for the same guy or guys.
Given Gabby and Rachel had been strung along and brutally rejected -- in a group dumping session -- by Season 26 The Bachelor star Clayton Echard, it seems the majority of The Bachelor franchise viewers want to see the women supporting and helping each other, rather than being in a competitive atmosphere once again.
"I think they really are going out of their way to not pit two women against one another," Season 21 The Bachelor star Nick Viall said during a recent episode of his "The Viall Files" podcast, claiming to have recently learned the inside scoop from production.
"If it doesn't work out, like if, let's say Gabby was like, feeling it with 'Frank.' 'Frank' could be like, 'Rachel, sup?'" Nick explained.
"There's a little bit of like, options, right? And the thing about Paradise, what makes it different is people have options."
ABC featured two Bachelorettes in one season only once before, but Kaitlyn Bristowe and Britt Nilsson were forced to face off against each other for a solo The Bachelorette role on Night 1 of the show back when Season 11 aired in 2016.
After only several hours of getting to know Kaitlyn and Britt, the men voted for the woman they'd like to continue dating, and Kaitlyn ended up starring on the season with more votes. Britt, who had already competed against Kaitlyn for Chris Soules' heart on The Bachelor's nineteenth edition, was sent home immediately.
But The Bachelor creator and executive producer Mike Fleiss assured fans in April that Rachel and Gabby were not at odds when filming the show.
"No drama...Just two friends helping each other find true love!" Mike tweeted at the time.
Gabby and Rachel, who already wrapped production, will have 32 men to choose from between the ages of 23-36 years old when The Bachelorette's nineteenth season premieres Monday, July 11 at 8PM ET/PT on ABC.
