Who is Rachel Recchia?

Rachel is a 25-year-old flight instructor/ pilot from Clermont, Florida. A glance at her Instagram page makes it clear that she enjoys traveling. Luckily her job as a pilot allows her to travel to her heart's content. According to her bio on ABC's website, she recently earned her private pilot license, and is looking for a "co-pilot that matches her sense of adventure". This self-described hopeless romantic is looking for a man who is as playful, passionate and spontaneous as her. Some other important traits her dream man must possess include "nurturing, empathetic and MUST be respectful in all facets of life – to her, to family, and especially to waiters." Looks like Rachel knows exactly what she wants in her man. Does Clayton fit the bill?

Well, according to Reality Steve, Rachel managed to make it to Clayton's top four ladies. In November, Reality Steve tweeted that Rachel and three other ladies- Susie Evans, Serene Russell, and Gabby Windey managed to make it to the top four, and had hometown dates with 'The Bachelor' star. He also tweeted later that Rachel made it to the final three along with Gabby and Susie!
