*Warning: Spoilers ahead*
Rachel Recchia and Gabby Windey’s season of The Bachelorette has officially come to an end. We knew they would bring the drama because the double lead format had never been done before. Well, excluding season 11 when the contestants were forced to choose between Kaitlyn Bristowe (who became the Bachelorette) and Britt Nilsson (who was sent home).
This time, both leads stuck around for the entire season. And before it even began, we predicted that the switch-up would be a good thing for The Bachelorette because it might save the franchise from its years-long decline. At the time, we listed why having two Bachelorette leads was a much-needed change.
