'The Bachelor' Season 26 Finale: Here's why Clayton might end up alone
If you've been keeping up with Season 26 of 'The Bachelor', then you know for a fact that it has been one heck of an emotional rollercoaster. After Clayton Echard lashed out at Susie, it seemed as though there was no hope for the pair, with Susie deciding to leave the show. However, Clayton realized that he had to come clean to Gabby and Rachel about what transpired. And it was clear to him that his actions had consequences.
Gabby and Rachel were just as shocked to find out that he had told all three of them that he was in love with them. While Rachel accepted the rose Clayton gave her, Gabby was ready to leave the show. Instead, however, he convinced her to fight for their love. While Gabby agreed, it looks like she should have just trusted her gut after all.
While Gabby and Rachel met with Clayton's family, Clayton's father Brian called his son out for his actions. He supported Gabby's decision to leave and told her that he respected her for it and even told Rachel that she shouldn't trust anyone easily, even though he was talking about his own son.
While both the women made a good impression, Clayton couldn't stop talking about Susie. His parents told him that there was no point in chasing the idea of the one that got away, and if Susie left on her own accord, he should let her go.
Clayton insisted that he pushed her to that point, stating that he shut down, even though Susie wanted to talk things over. His parents still felt as though it was a bad idea, but Clayton was adamant. With Susie still in Iceland, Clayton is now determined to meet her and talk to her about what happened between them, in hopes of winning her over. But this will certainly not sit well with Gabby, who made it clear that she didn't want to be second fiddle to someone else or have to prove her love.
What do you think? Will Gabby walk away from Clayton this time around? Will Susie return? Will Rachel's trust be broken? Or will Clayton be left alone by the end of the finale? Sound off in the comments below!
