AceShowbiz - A new episode of "The Bachelorette" saw Rachel Rechhia being left in tears. In the Monday, August 8 episode of the long-running ABC dating show, Logan shockingly dumped her as he realized that his feelings were for Gabby Windey instead.
Logan told Rachel the truth after he was chosen to go to the next group date with her. "For this whole journey, I've gotten to know Rachel as this wonderful person, but the worst thing I could do is get to a point where relationships are more serious and then bring this up," Logan explained in a confessional. "I need to tell her I can't go [on the date] and I need to tell her why. I have no clue how she'll react, but maybe she'll understand. I'm praying she will."
Logan later showed up at Rachel's door. "I feel like something's kind of been holding me back a little bit," Logan admitted. "A feeling I've been anchored down by a little bit. At the beginning of this journey on the first group date, you and I shared a real connection. But I also got to talk with Gabby and me and Gabby also had a strong connection. At the end of the night, I originally thought I was going to receive a rose from Gabby and it's been hard for me moving forward to kind of forget about that connection."
"When I read that date card today, I felt that everyone else on that card was sure that you were going to be someone they could end up with at the end of this, and I still had reservations and feelings for Gabby. That being said, I can't go today," he added.
Understandably, Rachel was speechless upon hearing Logan's confession, especially when he said that he would "step away" from pursuing her. "You accepted so many roses from me when the whole time you didn't even want to spend time with me," Rachel said. "I appreciate you bringing this to me, but I just wish it would've been earlier."
Rachel was left in tears after walking him out. She admitted in a confessional that she was "really hopeful that things could pick up with Logan," adding, "I think he's a great guy. I'm attracted to him. I gave him the first group date rose."
She continued, "The whole time he's thinking, 'How do I tell Rachel I don't even want to be here?' Everyone is leaving me. The rejection just feels really awful. It almost feels like I'm doing something wrong. This was supposed to be my time to find someone and everyone's rejecting me week after week after week. I don't even know why I'm here. I don't want to do his anymore."
She eventually canceled the group date because she wasn't in the right mindset. Her decision upset the other five men. However, Rachel promised to attend the after-party to meet the guys.
Meanwhile, Logan went to Gabby's room to tell her what happened between him and Rachel. Gabby said that Logan was the only guy who she and Rachel "overlapped" on when they were deciding on which men they wanted to pursue. She shared, "When you came over you kissed both of us and it sounded like you and Rachel had a great conversation so I completely backed away. But I was like…dang…I am very interested. It might not be as easy for me to let go of my feelings. But we are on our separate journeys now, and I just want to check in with Rachel."
Later, Gabby and Rachel had a conversation about the matter. While Rachel was upset, she encouraged Gabby to follow her own heart and not worry about her if she wanted to accept Logan. In her confessional, meanwhile, Rachel was concerned that Logan was going to hurt Gabby in the future, just like what he did to her. "At the end of the day, I'm going to support [Gabby] no matter what. But I really hope Gabby sends him home," she said.
Gabby decided to give Logan a chance. Following a group date with six of her men, Gabby invited Logan to the after-party which upset the other men. Not stopping there, Gabby gave Logan a rose in the rose ceremony.
