With the return of The Bachelorette, we are reminded once again that we can never predict what will happen next on the show. What’s the latest? After getting engaged at the end of the show, Rachel Recchia and Tino Franco have apparently called off their engagement. Reality Steve, the undisputed king of celebrity rumor, reports that the couple made the decision after finding themselves in a Ross and Rachel–style breakup limbo. In-her-est-ing!
Those who were holding out hope that the pilot might finally find love after watching Clayton Echard’s absolutely terrible season of The Bachelor earlier this year will be devastated by the news. But let’s not dwell on that terrible event again. Currently, here is everything we know about Rachel and Tino’s relationship:
Rachel Announced Their Breakup on The Tv.
Tino’s infidelity was documented as he and Rachel broke up on television. Rachel wanted to confront Tino, so she contacted her best friend Gabby Windey, and the cameras from The Bachelorette were there to catch it all. Rachel told Gabby, “I truly don’t want to believe that occurred, because it’s so crazy,” before confronting Tino on air. If you aren’t sorry for your actions, no one will forgive you.
Tino arrived in a state of obvious distress, confessed that he had “messed up,” but dismissed his infidelity as “the slightest thing ever.” He went on to say that he had kissed a girl he’d met before filming began and that they’d run into each other again at a pub the week the show debuted. After Rachel replied, “I don’t know how this is going to work, I’m in a bad place and I can’t put effort into this,” Tino whipped out his journal and said that he cheated on her since they were in such a bad position.
What Is the Reason Behind Their Breakup?
It was also stated by Tino that Rachel didn’t want to wear her engagement ring, didn’t want to go to therapy, and asked if he wanted to be the Bachelor if they broke up. Rachel refuted Tino’s accusations and said he was trying to blame her for his infidelity and lack of apology. “I was haunted by this,” Tino stated. “It was an isolated incident, and I knew right away that I wanted to be with you.” Tino left the room several times since Rachel didn’t think it was an isolated incident. When it came down to it, Rachel opted to terminate things with Tino, despite his best efforts to patch things up.
“If we’re both at our worst, I’d rather be with you than anyone else at their best. Tino remarked, “I just want you,” and Rachel merely replied, “I’m done.” The viewers of “The Bachelorette” were split on who was to blame for the breakup. Tino clearly cheated on Rachel, but Bachelor Nation was divided as to who was more to blame for the breakup. Somebody should tell Tino’s dad that he brought up cheating, lying gaslighter, as one tweet put it. “Everything about Tino and his family raised red flags.
Who Never Changed the Tone of His Voice
Why did she go with a guy who never changed the tone of his voice despite knowing he was a cheater?” Someone else enquired. However, there are many who think Rachel is someone completely different off-screen, and that Tino is just one of the males she used to influence on the show. Another viewer noted, “I am actually rooting with Tino because I believe Rachel has fought in her own head and doesn’t even listen to the other person,” corroborating what at least two men have remarked about Rachel’s personality off and on camera.
The third person added, “It’s probably unpopular of me to say this, but I think Rachel is trying to gaslight Tino. She’s pretending she never said something, and she’s making an effort to make Tino look bad. There’s no justification for infidelity, but she’s definitely trying to control the situation.” But as one book closed, another opened. Runner-up to Rachel, Zach Shallcross, was announced by Jesse as the next Bachelor towards the end of the episode (for more on that, click here).
The First Time and Two Chaotic Endings for Both Rachel and Gabby
Before Zach found out that he would be starting his adventure as “The Bachelor” tonight, he got some advice from “The Bachelor” veteran Sean Lowe. Five of Zach’s potential suitors were there, and America gave the first impression rose to a woman named Brianna through Twitter.
This season of “The Bachelorette” featured two leading ladies for the first time and two chaotic endings for both Rachel and Gabby, certainly to fill the rest of the year; but fear not, Bachelor Nation: before Zach’s journey on “The Bachelor” airs in 2023, a new season of “Bachelor In Paradise” begins next week.
