They are dressed to impress! Bachelorette season 19 leads Rachel Rechia and Gaby Windey maybe on the hit reality series Looking for Love, but that doesn’t mean they can’t prioritize fashion! In fact, the two female leads started looking stunning in their respective dresses in Episode 1 – and we can’t wait to see what fashion choices are coming next.
Rachel and Gabby did single nation history as they marked the first time that two women shared the lead on the reality show.
“Two best friends. An incredible journey,” read the text on the trailer released on May 20, 2022. “This season is all about petal to metal,” the text continued, playing on the iconic red roses of the series. As the two will be sharing the stage throughout their journey, the show has changed its name to Singles for the season, the end of the trailer shows.
Viewers first met Rachel and Gabby during Clayton Echardthe season of The single person. At the time, Season 26 The Bachelor begged Rachel and Gabby to stay and fight for their one-on-one relationships, only to end things with the two shortly after to continue Susie Evans.
Although they both turned out to be finalists, the duo came out of the experience as best friends. Their close bond, host Jesse Palmer said, will help them as they take the lead on the show.
“They’re not competing against each other… What I can say is that they absolutely have to support each other as friends to get through this,” Jesse said in a July 2022 interview with TV Insider. “It’s unprecedented, never have two Bachelorettes spent the entire season side by side, so two love stories, but two completely different paths… We saw their unwavering support for each other during of the Rose Ceremony From Hell in Iceland during Clayton’s season finale, they absolutely have to rely on each other to get through this.
Since the show will not be a competition, the ladies have set their respective goals for their future partner.
“Rachel is looking for someone as playful, passionate and spontaneous as she is,” reads Rachel’s bio. “He should be caring, empathetic and MUST be respectful in all aspects of life – to her, her family and especially the servers.”
As for Gabby’s criteria, she is looking for “a man with quiet confidence”, her ABC organic bed. “She doesn’t have a physical type but says if he doesn’t have a personality then it’s a tough pass. … The non-negotiable one for Gabby? Whatever man captures Gabby’s heart, he must also have room in his life for his four-legged friend, as she and her goldendoodle Leonardo are a forfeit.
