7. Bachelor Nation Alumni
Sean Lowe was invited onto the hot seat with his wife to comment on Zach’s journey thus far and the predicament he now finds himself in. Sean poked fun at some of his journies but clarified that these are tough decisions and don’t get any easier. He said Zach messed up fantasy suites, but who doesn’t?
Sean talked about how everyone has a plan for that week, but you must follow your heart and trust the process. Jesse noted that everyone is looking for a relationship like theirs and how successful their relationship has been after the show.
Before cutting back to Thailand, Jesse revealed that this would be a tough ending for one of the women on The Bachelor Season 27, and it would be sad. Here come the waterworks Bachelor Nation!
8. The Bachelor Season 27: Proposal Part 1
Both women were nervous about their final moment on The Bachelor Season 27 with Zach. Who is it going to be in the end? That is up for Zach to decide, who still can’t seem to come to a decision. Jesse helped Zach pick out the engagement ring in Neil Lane’s absence. He chose a ring and got dressed up for the rest of his life, potentially.
The women drove to meet Zach at the altar, knowing that only one would make it out of this with the man of their dreams. Gabi was the first to arrive and had some thoughts for the producers who dropped her off in the mud. When she got out, she commented that when it matters, and Kaity shows up, don’t do that to her. It sounds like Gabi didn’t have great thoughts going into the day.
Jesse greeted her but didn’t do much to calm her nerves. Gabi noted that she had a gut feeling that it wouldn’t be her. But what if it was? And that is ultimately why she stuck it out and went to the alter. Zach recapped their journey thus far and the moments he has cherished with her.
Zach revealed that falling in love with her has made him a better man…and then came the but. Gabi already knew it was coming and told him he didn’t have to say it. Zach started in on his reasoning why, and she asked him to stop again. He couldn’t do anything but apologize. Gabi said she knew it was coming and asked why he couldn’t have told her sooner. She said he knew, but Zach said he didn’t decide until last night. However, she couldn’t be convinced otherwise.
This ending was not great between these two, with Gabi noting that she didn’t want or need his apology but truly wanted the best for him. Gabi did thank Zach for the experience and said she would find love someday. She was not having it with Zach and let herself into the vehicle and didn’t return Zach’s goodbye. In the car, she didn’t say much other than just wanting to go home and knowing it would be her going home in the end. All that self-doubt and anxiety were proven true then, and she should have trusted her gut and gone home early.
