The Bachelorette is probably going to be a mess next season. Because it will have two leads who were the jilted women from last night’s The Bachelor season finale. 30-year-old Gabby Windey (brunette) and 25-year-old Rachel Recchia (blonde) are going to date 30+ dudes in the hopes of finding their forever love. Gabby and Rachel will date the men at the same time. Double-Shot At Love, who? MTV needs to sue over copyright infringement!
After a boring season of The Bachelor, which was carried by a gaggle of very obvious villains ready for Instagram influencer careers, producers managed to manipulate–I mean–capture footage of the lead, 28-year-old Clayton Echard, sleeping with and professing his love to two of the three lead women (Gabby and Rachel). And then he picked the third one! It was drama.
During the final episodes, Clayton had a final Fantasy Suite date with the eventual winner, 28-year-old Susie Evans (who is Bachelorette Hannah Brown‘s face-twin, Jesus!–do these contestants come from a lab?). A “Fantasy Suite date” involves fucking most of the time. Clayton’s Fantasy Suite dates with Gabby and Rachel came first. During Susie’s, she let him know that she was uncomfortable with him humping Gabby and Rachel. Clayton admitted that he already slept with them and asked Susie back to the suite to talk it over but they fought and she left.
Clayton then decided to be “transparent” with Gabby and Rachel and crushed their hearts by telling them that he was “intimate” with the both of them and is in love with all three finalists. Gabby and Rachel both broke down in tears as the producers probably silently screamed off-camera in excitement over the drama of it all:
Clayton then went to Susie and begged her not to leave the show. Susie decided to say since she never told Clayton that she didn’t want him to sex on the two other women. Clayton eventually dumped Gabby and Rachel and chose Susie, and the two ultimately got back together on After the Final Rose.
But Rachel and Gabby aren’t out in the cold! It’s all come around out of the
deviousness of production’s kindness of The Bachelor‘s heart. Entertainment Weekly says that the two shafted women are going to be co-Bachelorettes. No way that goes south and they pit these women against each other! Perish the thought. Here’s host, Jesse Palmer, telling the women on After the Final Rose last night:
But there may be actual hope for this not turning into a catty mess, as Gabby and Rachel did show remarkable solidarity after having the same guy say to their faces: “I fucked and love both of you.”

Welp, Kelly Ripa is going to be FUMING over this! She already got in trouble with ABC for saying how “disgusted” she is with The Bachelorette when there’s one woman. Now there are two!?! She’s gonna lose it!
