The Bachelorette Season 19 is doubling down on love with two leads in tow: Gabby Windey and Rachel Recchia. And ABC has already shared who their potential suitors are!
The Bachelorette news came at the conclusion of Clayton Echard's tumultuous search for love on The Bachelor 2022 finale. Clayton dumped Gabby and Rachel in order to pursue Susie, but he was dumped as well. In the finale, it was revealed that he and Susie reconciled, but not before Gabby and Rachel dragged him viciously.
Who is The Bachelorette Gabby Windey?
Gabriela Windey, a 31-year-old ICU nurse in Denver, Colorado, is known as Gabby. She spent five years as a Denver Broncos cheerleader. She was the first woman and NFL cheerleader to earn the Pop Warner Humanitarian Award in 2021 for her service on the front lines of the pandemic.
Who is The Bachelorette Rachel Recchia?
Rachel Recchia, a professional pilot and flight instructor from Clermont, Florida, is 26 years old. She is a huge Harry Potter aficionado and a Chicago Cubs fan, having spent her childhood in the Windy City.
Will Gabby and Rachel Compete for the Same Man (AGAIN) in The Bachelorette Season 19?
The Bachelorette Season 19 isn't the same as Season 11, when Kaitlyn Bristowe and Britt Nilsson were both vying for the lead. The men voted for their favorite, and Kaitlyn was named Bachelorette.
Instead, Gabby and Rachel will spend The Bachelorette Season 19 entirely together. What's going to happen? Will they be competing against the same people? Will they have to battle for a man (again)? There are a lot of questions, but very few answers, at least for now.
The Bachelorette Season 19 Release Date
The Bachelorette Season 19 will premiere on July 11.
The show usually starts airing in late May, so a July premiere is a bit unusual. The pandemic, however, threw everything into disarray. Season 16 premiered in October 2020, with Clare Crawley and Tayshia Adams, and there were two Bachelorette seasons last year. Katie Thurston's premiered in June, and Michelle Young's in October.
The Bachelorette Season 19 is expected to begin production in the second to last week of March, as is customary for the spinoff. Gabby and Rachel made a joint Instagram photo on Mar. 21 before signing off to begin filming.
The show usually aired from late May through early August, when Bachelor in Paradise took over on ABC. With The Bachelorette Season 19 debuting in July, Bachelor in Paradise 2022 will most likely air in September.
