How Did Erich Schwer Meet His Girlfriend Elizabeth Turner?

Erich, who hails from New Jersey, currently resides in Santa Monica, California. It’s unclear how he and Elizabeth first crossed paths but it appears that they live in somewhat close proximity. 

Since his time on The Bachelorette, Erich has also been doing a bit of modeling and brand partnership deals thanks to his newfound reality TV fame. It’s possible that he and Elizabeth run in similar social circles. 

Why Did Gabby Windey and Erich Schwer Split?

Gabby, 32, and Erich got engaged during the season 19 finale, which filmed in May 2022, after she eliminated finalists Jason Alabaster and Johnny DePhillipo. However, less than two months after the episode aired in September 2022, rumors began swirling that the pair had called it quits.

The former leading lady confirmed suspicions about their breakup while competing on Dancing With the Stars.

“For me [the dance] holds a special place because I did just go through a breakup,” Gabby said ahead of a waltz performed to “I’m Kissing You” by Des’ree during the November 14, 2022, episode. “The end of our relationship happened because we weren’t completely in step and in sync with each other on our common goals or just the way we approached life. We weren’t each other’s best match.”

For his part, Erich addressed their uncoupling via his Instagram Stories one day after, explaining that he and Gabby were just “not each other’s people” in the long run.

“It’s hard when there isn’t one thing to put your finger on,” he wrote, in part, calling the nurse an “amazing person” in his post. “We met in a very unique situation and in a very unique way and I’m grateful we did. I would never take it back.”
