Bachelor Nation, accept these photos of Gabby Windey! If you thought the season 19 Bachelorette star was confident following her stint on The Bachelor, well, these bikini pics prove that she is *the moment.*
The Denver native made headlines after appearing on Clayton Echard‘s season and finishing as one of his final three women. As the former football star’s journey for love came to an end in March 2022, Gabby’s began — alongside co-leading lady .
“We’ve been through the most crazy experience together,” Rachel told fans during the live portion of the Bachelor finale. Gabby added, “I’m a girls’ girl through and through, so having a friend by my side is the best thing that I could have asked for.”
Before she was announced as one of the Bachelorettes, viewers fell in love with Gabby’s humor and quick wit. They also praised the former Denver Broncos cheerleader for how she confronted Clayton after he broke up with her on national television.
“I don’t think he’s being fair right now,” she shared during the bombshell final Bachelor Rose Ceremony during season 26. “I don’t think you tell multiple women that you love them thinking that there would be no consequences knowing that there’s steps along the way that we have to get through. For him to say that ‘the woman I walk out with is the woman I love the most?’ Like, wrong f–king answer.”
Not only did Gabby tell Clayton he couldn’t walk her out, but she got a chance to share her feelings when they met face-to-face on the ABC stage immediately after their breakup aired.
“Before having watched it back I truly felt we were on our own journey … watching it back everything is muddled and you were clearly pitting us against each other,” Gabby said. “It really seemed like a competition which I had expressed to you that I didn’t want to be a part of.”
Fans watched Gabby’s journey for love continue during The Bachelorette season 19. After dating a handful of eligible bachelors alongside Rachel, the Dancing With the Stars alum got engaged to Erich Schwer at the end of the season.
While the pair looked blissfully in love after the show’s September 2022 finale – which was filmed that May – they called off their engagement two months later.
Gabby and Erich “weren’t aligned or on the same page,” a source told E! News at the time.
“Gabby was hoping they could give each other space and work it out but ultimately decided they didn’t have a future,” the insider added.
Since their split, Erich went public with his new girlfriend, Elizabeth Turner, on Valentine’s Day 2023.
Now, Gabby is single and ready to mingle! Keep scrolling to see her bikini photos.
