Gabby Windey becomes the subject of harsh rejections in an exclusive sneak peek footage from The Bachelorette season 19 episode 3. Gabby was a fan favorite on The Bachelor season 26 with pilot Rachel Recchia, who was mentored by Clayton Echard.
When Gabby and Rachel were introduced as The Bachelorette's season 19 leads, viewers were overjoyed but also perplexed.
Gabby and Rachel met all 32 guys together on the season premiere, and afterwards each gave out their individual first impression rose. As they went on separate one-on-one dates in week 2, the ladies began to construct their own love tales.
Rachel, unlike Gabby, wasn't having the greatest success with the guys during the first few group and one-on-one dates of the season.
Rachel struggled on her one-on-one date with racing car driver Jordan Vandergriff because she couldn't connect with him, so she sent him home.
Rachel watched with bittersweet feelings the following day as love flames ignited between Gabby and Nate Mitchell on their one-on-one.
Rachel also struggled at the group date's afterparty, when some of the guys admitted to Rachel that they were just there for Gabby. Rachel acknowledged that she was concerned because none of the males were interested in her.
Hayden isn't the only one who rejects co-Bachelorette Gabby that night, as Jake Rapini tells Gabby something similar.
He continues by confessing that he and Gabby did not have the connection he had hoped for, despite Jake being one of Gabby's favorite discussions on night one.
Jake goes on to say that if Gabby was the only Bachelorette, he would be unable to persuade himself to remain for her. Gabby reacts negatively to both talks, crying out to the cameras that they are "validating all her anxieties."
Although many Bachelor Nation fans like Gabby and Rachel, many did not agree with letting both ladies share a season with the same pool of guys in fear of something similar to these rejections occurring and hurting both women.
After both ladies from Matt James' season were revealed as the next leaders, several fans believed Gabby and Rachel should have had their own seasons, like Katie Thurston and Michelle Young did.
In spite of the great relationship between Katie and Michelle and Gabby, people believe that each ladies deserve their own season. Fans are hoping that Gabby and Rachel will be able to find their forever match as The Bachelorette season 19 begins.
