If that wasn’t dramatic enough it was time to have a 19-on-2 group dating, which is the largest in Bachelor Nation history. The guys and the Bachelorettes completed some very weird photoshoots—at one point Meatball was dressed as a giant baby and birthed by another contestant dressed in a hospital gown, for some reason—the group got dressed up for a night at SoFi Stadium, home of the Los Angeles Rams and Los Angeles Chargers.
The night was highlighted—or low-lighted, if you will—by an uncomfortable conversation between Gabby and HaydenIn which Hayden said that he was more interested Rachel than Rachel. “rough around the edges.” TylerAnd Jacob proceeded to tell Gabby that they were only interested in Rachel, as well.
Host once again returns to the mansion Jesse PalmerGabby and Rachel requested that the cocktail party be cancelled and that the show’s format was being rearranged. Jesse explained that by accepting a rose during the rose ceremony, “you are committing to dating one woman, the woman that offers you the rose and not the other.”The men were divided into two distinct groups.
The episode ended with the dynamic reversed. Some of the men pledged their loyalty to Gabby instead of Rachel. Termayne, AlecAnd Meatball all declining Rachel’s roses. Gabby didn’t pick any of them, so they were all sent home with Jacob.
