'The Bachelorette' 2022: Are Gabby and Erich being forced to get engaged? Fans feel she is mad at production
MEXICO, NORTH AMERICA: Rachel Recchia and Gabby Windey both received terrible news from their last men in Part One of 'The Bachelorette' finale. In retrospect, fans believe the bachelorettes are being pushed to get proposed to as none of the contestants appear to be ready to take the big step.
Bachelor Nation has been down to the last two guys, but neither Gabby nor Rachel appear to be headed for a happily ever after. It's assumed that Gabby and Erich Schwer will get engaged at the finale, but it'll be a hard journey for them to get to the same place emotionally. Gabby claims that he makes her feel protected and seen, and she hopes he will propose to her at the end of this. The episode, on the other hand, concludes with some unpleasant sequences in which Gabby can be seen storming out while weeping.
Erich and Gabby's Last Chance date gets off to a good start. Gabby still needs assurances that Erich would propose on the last day. "I obviously didn't expect to ever be here in this position," Erich explains. "It's been crazy, but I truly love you. I do want to spend the rest of my life with you, but I don't want to rush anything, and I don't want there to be any expectations, or anything that won't be natural to us."
Unfortunately, expectations have risen and are not going away. "I do want a proposal from him," Gabby tells the viewers. "I just want to know the truth," Erich says as she leads him out onto the balcony, where they can chat without cameras in their faces. Fortunately for the viewers, the cameras are recording them via a glass door. "The last thing I want to do is put pressure on you," Gabby adds. Erich, like Aven, prefers a more natural approach to their relationship. "I really want us to work," he says. "I want to date you, in the real world. I want to date you, and getting engaged before that happens is not how things usually go."
Gabby is depressed after her talk with Erich on the balcony. "He said, 'I want to continue to date you,'" she tells. "That doesn't scream, 'I want to propose,'" she cries as she walks out of the hotel suite, a producer trailing behind her. "I don't want to do this anymore," she declares. "I'm so sick of this," she adds, but she doesn't want to end the relationship since Erich isn't ready to propose. "Here we are, a big fat dumpster fire," she groans. "A big [bleeping] mess."
Bachelorette fans who have been rooting for Gabby and Erich since the beginning feel they are being forced to get engaged, as one wrote, "Am I the only one that took that convo as Gabby being frustrated that both her & Erich are being pressured to propose from the show? #TheBachelorette."
Looking at Gabby's reaction to Erich, a fan quipped, "Erich: “I wanna continue to date you” Gabby: #thebachelorette #bachelorette."
Seeing where Erich comes from with his explanation, fans couldn't help but call out our bachelorettes, "Erich and Aven, probably two of the most rational men to ever come on the show and Rachel and Gabby are just like "Nah, not good enough"?? #TheBachelorette."
Another fan asked if people will go after Gabby for wanting to be engaged as they did with Rachel: "Are y’all gonna go at Gabby for being upset with Erich about not being ready to propose? Does she just want the “ " now?? #TheBachelorette."
Another fan tweeted, "Okay guys if Gabby dumps Erich are you going to treat her the way you’re treating Rachel and say he’s in the right and she’s wrong? Probs not #TheBachelorette."

After their awkward conversation last week, fans quickly noticed how their late-night conversations aren't working well for them, "Both Erich and gabby have proven that these late night meet ups are not working #Bachelorette #TheBachelorette #bachelornation."
Fans feel Gabby's anger is towards the production and not Erich, "“I don’t want anyone to be forced”. Gabby’s upset with production, not with Erich. #TheBachelorette."
Fans even called out Rachel after how Gabby handled the conversation with Erich, "See how Gabby is handling this and how different it is to Rachel. It’s the same conversation and Gabby respects where Erich is coming from #TheBachelorette #bachelorette."
Some fans predict that Erich will propose by the end of the show, "First of all, what if Erich wanted to surprise Gabby with a proposal?? Why is the expectation that the men need to tell the girl “I’m going to propose” ??? I feel like he’s going to #thebachelorette."
