My BBs!!! I hope you’re ready for 2 whole weeks of 1 finale featuring 2 bachelorettes!!! Jesse Palmer told us to gird our loins last week in preparation for this finale so I’m expecting a cage fight or something!
We pick back up with Rachel and Zach talking outside of the rose ceremony. Their body language is screaming that SOMETHING happened in the Fantasy Suite that they are not sharing with us and I WANNA KNOW!!! Zach says “I got Bachelorette Rachel and not real Rachel. I really loved you. I need to go.” Rachel just kind of stands there with no emotion. It’s all v odd. Zach leaves.
Back in LA- Rachel and Gabby both look STUNNING. But their facial expressions say they have SEEN SOME STUFF. Zach comes on stage with R and they both apologize to each other and leave it on good terms but it’s still v stiff and strange.
In Mexico, R’s family is here including her parents and 2 bffs. Aven meets R’s family first. He brings dad a cigar but Dad is tough on Aven! Dad basically yells “No one is going to take my daughter away from me” at Aven. Take it down a notch Dad. No one is absconding with your precious daughter!!! Good grief. Then Aven tells the BFFs that he’s not ready to propose in 5 days. YIKES. WHAT is going on with the men this season??? Does NO ONE want to get engaged?? WHY are they on the show??? I’m so confused. And so is Rachel! She and A sit down to talk about things and R is v confused as they argue. R thinks A lied to her about getting engaged. She is laser focused on a ring and dammit you better produce one!!!
Gabby’s family is here too including Grandpa John! G brings Erich to meet them and everything goes great. Fam LOVES E and they all get emotional about G finally settling down with her person.
Tino meets R’s family and swears his family will come around and love R. R’s family buys it but I DO NOT. I saw T’s family and their skepticism and dislike! Good luck Rachel, you’ll need it!!!
R has her last date with Aven and she goes to his hotel room. They immediately get into the whole thing about R wanting an engagement and A not being ready. A insists he loves R and wants to spend his life with her but give them some time. But Rachel isn’t hearing the logic of what he’s saying. And we all know R just wants the proposal. R says she can’t move forward and it’s over. A is clearly heartbroken. He says he failed. R leaves in tears. Aven for Bachelor!!!!
In LA, Aven comes on stage and apologizes to Rachel and she to him. Uneventful except that Aven just is soooo cute. Swoon.
Gabby’s final date with Erich starts out great then Erich says he doesn’t want to rush things and he wants to date G. Gabby, who also has engagement rings dancing in her eyes, does NOT take this well. G starts crying and walks away and boom, that’s it for this week!
So we have to wait until next week to see what happens! Until then, BBs. xo 🌹
