div>Rachel Recchia and Gabby Windey decided which guys would be worth going to their hometown on Monday night the bachelorette.
Season 19 the bachelorette is the first of the hit ABC reality show in which two women go in search of love. After a rough start, they decided to split the boys into two teams.
But the drama flowed again in episode 6 when Gabby tearfully sent home a promising suitor, a man from Rachel’s team revealed a shocking secret, and another man was felled by COVID-19!
Who’s on Gabby’s one-on-one date?
The show’s European cruise ship arrived in Amsterdam and Gabby picked Nate for the private date. She was concerned that Nate was already a father, noting that visits to their hometown loomed “you’ve got more than one person there.”
Gabby had a difficult childhood with her mother and was “terrified” at the prospect of meeting Nate’s young daughter.
While she loved how Nate had treated her, Gabby told the cameras, “I go back and forth when I want to be a mom and that’s something I’m not quite sure about yet. It just seems so complicated.”
Tearful Gabby, 31, thought she had more to do with growing up – and amid the beautiful Amsterdam countryside, she ended things with Nate.
“I never want to say goodbye, but I think we’re just in two different places in our lives. It’s not you, it’s me,’ Gabby said to him, crying.
She admitted she was afraid to be a mother, but Nate said she would be great.
Still, he accepted her decision that it was over and said, “I would never be mad at you for being honest.”
Nate cried as he left and his suitcase was taken off the ship in front of the remaining Team Gabby boys.
Who received Rachel’s one-on-one date?
The flight instructor, 26, selected Zach who looked like a frontrunner because he had previously gone on a private date in episode 3.
This time, the two visited a tulip field in the Netherlands, rode bicycles, ran clog shops and shared a hot tub.
“She gives me butterflies,” Zach said in the confessional.
He was eager to get a rose to continue to the show’s hometown visit.
But over dinner at a museum, Zach suddenly got serious and said to Rachel, “I wanted to talk to you about this…a few years ago I weighed about 85 pounds more than I am now, seriously overweight.”
Zach went on to say that he couldn’t find love at the time and asked himself, “How do I fix it?”
The technical director told Rachel that he was undergoing therapy.
That pleased Rachel, who admitted she had also sought help after being dumped at Clayton Echard’s. The Bachelor season.
“Going to therapy was the favorite part of my week,” she said, adding that she’d asked herself, “How do I get on and what do I like? I really love it so much.”
She also loved that Zach had sought therapy.
He agreed with Rachel: “It can do wonders!” and said, “I’m falling in love with you.”
She gave Zach her date rose and they kissed in front of a classical music ensemble.
Meanwhile, Gabby told her team back on the boat what they already knew: “Nate isn’t here.”
After letting her remaining boys know that she was concerned about the responsibility of being a mother, they hugged her.
