'The Bachelorette' Recap: Rachel Recchia Eliminates a Guy Over 'Disgusting' Comparison

The new episode of the long-running ABC dating competition show kicks off with a drama as one of the men who are competing for Rachel is at the center of controversy once again.

AceShowbiz - Rachel Recchia and Gabby Windey continued their journey to find love in a new episode of "The Bachelorette". The Monday, August 1 episode kicked off with a drama which saw one of the men who were competing for Rachel was criticized for his actions once again.

Hayden, who called Gabby "rough around the edges" in the previous episode, explained himself after he rubbed people the wrong way with his wording about Gabby. "Gabby's the one who used the words 'rough around the edges,' " he claimed. "She said that twice. So I used that word to describe her and I got it thrown back in my face. I would hope Gabby is a little bit more mature than that. I don't think I said anything wrong. Maybe you shouldn't use that word to describe yourself, then."

Not stopping there, he later compared both Gabby and Rachel to one of his exes while he was talking to the other men in the house. "They don't hold a candle to her," Hayden shared. "I don't want to just settle. I don't see how any guy in here could be like, 'I wanna marry these girls.' "

Hayden's remarks didn't sit well with Meatball who looked visibly upset. "I definitely see Hayden in a very different light. He's saying things like, 'They overreacted, both Gabby and Rachel.' He called them both b***hes. It's disgusting. That's not how you should speak about a woman at all," he said. "Hearing this from Hayden is shocking and it doesn't sit well with me. Rachel gave me a second chance and I want to be honest with her. If he's not totally invested in Rachel, then he should go home."

Later at the cocktail party, Hayden had some time alone with Rachel and he opened up about his dog who might only have a few months left to live because of a brain tumor. The story made Rachel touched but he was upset when Rachel didn't even hesitate to say yes when Tino interrupted them for some one-on-one time with her.

"It's very tough to see Rachel's response with that," Hayden ranted. "I would've expected for Rachel to be like, 'No, Tino, give me a minute.' Not get up quicker than she sat down." He also complained to other men and this time, Meatball had it enough. He decided to tell Rachel about Hayden's behavior. "He said that you and Gabby both overreacted to what he said. And then he made a vulgar comparison about you and his ex. It was something about breasts. He also said, 'I don't trust these b***hes,' referring to you and Gabby," Meatball told Rachel.

Unsurprisingly, Rachel went to confront Hayden. "I had some more information brought to me tonight and I'm actually really upset about it because after what was said about Gabby in L.A., I was willing to move forward [with you] this week and the next day you went and said, 'I can't trust these b****es?' " Rachel said. Hayden denied the claims as he also denied making comparison between Rachel and his ex.

"The person who brought [this] to me, I don't feel like they would make this up," Rachel insisted. "I really feel like I gave you the chance in L.A., and I'm giving you the chance now to own up to it. This is the end of my rope. I'm hitting roadblock after roadblock and I can't keep dealing with it. Can I walk you out?"

After sending him home, Rachel cried as she was left frustrated. Meanwhile, Hayden was just excited to get home to meet his dog.
