Fans of “The Bachelor” and “The Bachelorette” are collectively known as “Bachelor Nation,” and the population numbers in the millions.
They’re used to being told every development is “the most dramatic of all time,” but Tuesday’s “Bachelorette” finale might do the trick as it’s the first time two women have gone all the way. two of the engagement.
Gabby Windey and Rachel Reccia were unlucky in love and were dumped on national TV by “Bachelor” Clayton Echard, so things had to look up for them during their time in the spotlight, right? not?
Well, yes and no. They must be the joint stars of “The Bachelorette,” but their season ends with all the drama we’ve come to expect.

Getting engaged at the end of the trip sounds easy enough, but like most things, that’s not always how it goes.
We’re still not sure if either of them found lasting love, but after the first part of the finale, it certainly didn’t seem too likely.
At least these two have managed to stay friends, despite dating some of the same men over the course of the show.
Speaking ahead of the show’s premiere but after filming wrapped, the pair gave no indication of the drama to come. But the show’s host, former NFL quarterback and former bachelor himself Jesse Palmer, alluded to it when he said the two navigated a predicament with class.
“I think Rachel and Gabby deserve a ton of credit,” he said. “And somehow, like magic, it worked.”
The definition of “worked” can vary, but if it means “dramatic”, then sure.
There is no drama, however, about each candidate’s choice, as the two are left with just one suitor. But it’s still unclear if those last roses were given and accepted, and if either relationship is still ongoing.
Rachel’s last man standing is Tino, whose father caused an online Twitter storm after giving Rachel the third degree during a date in his hometown.

You can get the answers Tuesday night, when the finale airs at 8 p.m. on this ABC station.
