Fans of The Bachelorette are already speculating about Rachel Recchia and Gabby Windey’s season – and filming is just getting started.
The two runners-up from Clayton Echard’s season of The Bachelor have been named the double stars for the forthcoming round with female fronts. During Clayton’s After the Final Rose special, Gabby and Rachel received the surprising news that they would be sharing the coveted lead role as host Jesse Palmer revealed“For the first time ever, we will have two ‘Bachelorettes’ for the entire season.”
After Gabby asked, “Are we dating the same guys?” Palmer admitted he had “no idea” about the logistics, but that they would all “figure this thing out together.”
In a March 16 interview with Bachelor NationGabby and Rachel revealed they’re looking for the same type of guy.
“Humor is great,” revealed Gabby. “But also just emotional intelligence and really knowing who you are as a person. Because I feel like a fully developed human being, I want someone to pick me up from where I am right now.”
Rachel agreed that she is looking for a man who is “kind of like” what Gabby described, noting that she wants a man who is “funny”, who makes her laugh and who fulfills her “dreams” supports.
“And we’re ready to find our person!” Rachel said of her and Gabby.
Fans have focused on the ages of the men cast for the Gabby & Rachel season
On March 22, ABC released photos and bios of nearly three dozen men who are potential suitors for Gabby and Rachel’s season. The photos of the 35 men can be seen on the Facebook page The Bachelorette..
In the comments section, fans immediately began speculating that it would be “not a good outcome” if Gabby and Rachel both had to date the same guys.
“This is going to be messy,” commented one fan.
Others speculated that the Bachelorette stars will split their men by age. Gabby is 31 years old while Rachel is only 26 years old.
After some fans pointed out that there seems to be a lot of young people in the upcoming cast, another added, “Looks like we’ve got some older guys! Thank God!”
“Gabby is 31 and Rachel is 26, so theoretically they can cover a pretty wide range,” said another fan written down.
An early look at the potential cast reveals a pretty wide age range. There are boys between the ages of 23 and 36. The fan account The BachLexx also pointed out the “nice mix of men between 25 and 36”.
“Rachel is 26 and Gabby is 31. A lot of fans were concerned that they might fall in love with the same guys, but I think it’s such a good mix that there may not be any overlap,” reads a caption on the page .
“Gabby could easily go for the men 29+. Some cute 30 year old guys… and Rachel might date the under 28 boys,” another fan said tweeted.
The Bachelor Creator Responded to Fan Comments on Bachelorette Season 2
Nothing has been announced yet about how the upcoming season of The Bachelorette will work, but the large age difference between the contestants could be a clue.
According to Us WeeklyGabby told Good Morning America that she and Rachel “will have each other’s backs all along the way.” That makes it sound like they don’t fight over the same guys and might find a way to split their dates.
As for fans’ fears that the two women will face off, showrunner Mike Fleiss has already closed that theory.
As a spectator speculated, “I love Gabby and Rachel, but there’s no way you can pit these two against each other. Every man is asked the same question, ‘Who do you like more!’” Fleiss replied on Twitter.
“Huh! You’ll see…” wrote the creator of The Bachelorette.
