Is love brewing? Bachelorette star Gabby Windey and contestant Erich Schwer hit it off during night one of her joint season with co-leading lady Rachel Recchia. What happens between the pair? Keep reading for finale spoilers!
Does Gabby Windey Pick Erich Schwer?
Erich, 29, is one of Gabby’s final two men along with Jason Alabaster. After his hometown date and fantasy suite date with the leading lady, 31, fans are dying to know if he’ll propose during the finale.
Erich wins the season and becomes Gabby’s fiancé, according to Reality Steve. The pair had instant sparks from their very first conversation, but it was clear the contestant was feeling the heat after he did not receive the group date rose during week 5, which aired on August 8.
“Like, I went into tonight feeling very good, about like, our talk, but Nate [Mitchell] got the group date rose, and we have Logan [Palmer] here now, so I don’t necessarily know like ranking-wise where I stand,” the New Jersey native said during a private interview. “But I don’t need to be here for like eight more weeks just to see what happens. Like that’s just a waste of my time.”
Since that episode, Nate, who has a daughter, was eliminated during a one-on-one date with Gabby before hometowns because she was not ready to become a stepmom. As for Logan, he contracted COVID-19 and was not able to finish out the season.
In fact, Erich is the only man standing at the end of the season when Gabby opts to end things with her runner-up, Jason. However, he expressed concerned about being ready to get engaged by the final rose ceremony, which results in Gabby breaking down in tears.
Do Gabby Windey and Erich Schwer Get Engaged?
Despite his reservations, the contestant popped the question to the nurse during the finale, and it seems as though they’re still together. The Colorado resident previously teased that she and Rachel, 26, are pleased with the outcome of their journeys.
“We’re both really happy,” Gabby told Hollywood Life. “I think we did everything we felt was right in the moment, and we stand by everything.”
Are Gabby Windey and Erich Schwer Still Together?
Time will tell if Erich and Gabby’s relationship will survive in the real world.
One thing is certain: Gabby knows what she wants, and she made it clear as a contestant on Clayton Echard’s season before she became the leading lady.
“Her ideal man will challenge her, communicate his feelings and work hard to equally carry the weight of the relationship,” her ABC bio reads, adding that she finds “quiet confidence” attractive. “While Gabby would love to find a man, she isn’t the type to lose herself in a relationship. She’s hoping to find a man who will love her for the independent woman she is.”
That seems to vibe with the real estate analyst, who was looking for someone who is “easygoing, selfless and communicative.”
“When it comes to relationships, Erich acts with intention and is looking for the real deal,” says his ABC bio. “He doesn’t want to be in a relationship just to be in a relationship and says that the next time he commits, it’s for the long haul.”
