A newly single “Bachelorette” star is continuing romantically after breaking off her engagement with her relay picture.
Rachel Recchia split from Tino Franco before the After the Final Rose special aired. The reality star took some time to recover from this relationship before dipping her toe back in the dating pool, but she recently revealed that they are in fact back together.
On November 8, 2022, Episode of the podcast “Bachelor Happy Hour”., Recchia told co-hosts Michelle Young and Becca Kufrin that she actually dated a guy who slipped in her DMs. However, Recchia hasn’t had an easy time getting back on track since trying to find love on reality TV.
“I don’t know how to go out without a camera. I wonder how do you go about dating if you don’t sit down and say, “Now tell me all about your life in the next five minutes – go!”…do I give him a date card? I say, “Let’s meet at the coffee shop, XO, Rach?” What can I do?” she joked.
Here’s what you need to know:
Reccia said their date ‘went well’
Despite having to readjust to dating without a camera crew in tow, Recchia revealed their post-engagement date went really well.
“It went well. And there’s a second date in the future,” she told Young and Kufrin on Bachelor Happy Hour. Recchia went on to say that the guy she dated wasn’t associated with Bachelor Nation, but someone who messaged her on social media. Recchia said she’s “obviously taking it slow.”
“We just went and had coffee. Just casual,” she said, keeping things pretty vague. When asked if the date ended with a kiss, Recchia played coy. “Maybe,” she teased.
After completing her season of The Bachelorette, Recchia moved to California from Florida. She and her roommate, “Bachelor in Paradise” star Genevieve Parisi, had “a great time” in Los Angeles, Recchia said.
It didn’t work out between Recchia and Aven Jones
On the After the Final Rose special, Recchia was surprised by one of her former suitors, Aven Jones, who stopped by to save her from a tense conversation with her ex, Franco. Jones asked Recchia if she wanted a drink and catch up.
Though fans hoped Recchia and Jones would rekindle their romance, things kind of fizzled out.
Interestingly, Reality Steve revealed that Jones showing up on ATFR wasn’t “real.”
“I can tell you, this thing isn’t even real. If I found out 30 minutes before the show, I probably know something people don’t. This isn’t real. This was done solely for television purposes. It was Bullen***. It will likely be short-lived. I guarantee they probably won’t even run out,” he said on his September 21, 2022 episode podcast.
“It was almost like a favor for the production,” he continued, adding, “There’s absolutely no chance Rachel and Aven will ever come to anything.”
