We’re only a few weeks into Gabby Windey and Rachel Recchia’s season of The Bachelorette.
But already, Rachel has been put through the emotional wringer like no other Bachelorette in history.
Usually, the woman handing out the roses only has to worry about how best to narrow down her massive group of suitors to find her perfect match.
But Rachel’s got the added problem of being rejected by guys who are supposed to be competing for her heart.
Yes, perhaps a little heartbreak was inevitable when the guys were forced to choose between Gabby and Rachel.
But if you were overcome with secondhand embarrassment when three guys turned down Rachel’s roses, fear not:
Fans are convinced that Ms. Recchia has already found Mr. Right, and that the two of them are totally gonna get engaged before the season is out.
Last month, we reported on Rachel and Gabby’s final four, as predicted by spoiler master Reality Steve.
Now, viewers believe they’ve got Rachel’s finalists narrowed down to one special guy.
And it probably won’t surprise you to learn that we’re talking about the suave general contractor who goes by the unforgettable name of Tino Franco.
“I’m convinced Rachel and Tino are engaged. The rest of her guys are just on vacation,” one fan tweeted during Monday’s episode.
“Can we just see Tino and Rachel get engaged already? We all know no one else is the one,” another chimed in.
“Rachel chooses Tino, or he’s the next Bachelor. That’s the only option,” a third viewer added.
And it’s not just fans who could see Rachel ending up with Tino.
When commenting on her date with Franco, Rachel stopped just short of picking out baby names.
“Kissing Tino in the rain, I feel excited again. I see why they call Paris the city of love,” she said in a confessional segment.
“I don’t want this day to end at all. It feels like a fairytale.”
Tino was similarly effusive in his praise for Rachel, gushing that she’s “the most amazing girl I’ve ever met.”
“I can’t imagine a better day,” he told the camera.
“She’s the most stunning girl I’ve ever got to spend time with, and I don’t ever want her to be unhappy,” added Tino, sounding very much like marriage material.
All of this comes after Rachel’s roses were by three men, which she described as “the most embarrassing thing ever happen to me.”
“The last rose ceremony was the most unexpected thing. I really just didn’t see it coming at all,” she said in a painfully candid moment.
“It’s just really difficult to be so vulnerable. Offering someone a rose, standing up there, having them tell you, ‘No’, multiple times.”
“Rejection just hurts,” agreed Gabby.
“That’s the thing. In that moment I’m like, ‘No one wants to date me, why am I here?’
“That was my lowest moment… hopefully.”
But it turns out someone very much does want to date Gabby.
And at this point, we wouldn’t be surprised if she pulls a Clare Crawley and bails on the rest of the season to get engaged to Tino!
