MEXICO, NORTH AMERICA: The Season 19 finale of ABC's 'The Bachelorette' is finally here, and fans can't wait to watch what happens to Rachel Recchia and her last three guys. However, when Zach Shallcross exited the show at the final three rose ceremony on the September 13 episode, the numbers changed.

Tino Franco, Zach Shallcross, and Aven Jones were supposed to meet Rachel's parents, but major drama changed everything. Rachel had some difficult selections about her final men in 'The Bachelorette' finale. Rachel has had close ties with Zach Shallcross and Aven Jones since the beginning, but her love for Tino Franco shows through when she bestows the First Impression Rose on him. Now it appears that all three guys will be at odds.

Zach's Fantasy Suites date did not go as planned, as viewers have already witnessed. He told host Jesse Palmer that Rachel had questions about his readiness to marry at such a young age, which threw him off. He left the show during the final three rose ceremonies, and many were taken aback by Rachel's handling of the issue. The choice was made after a private discussion with Rachel during the couple's dream suite date. Off-screen, Zach felt that things had radically altered between him and Rachel, who was concerned that, at 25, he was too young to commit to marriage.

Zach approached Rachel before the rose ceremony to express his feelings over the dream suite date. He declared, “What I was seeing wasn’t the real Rachel. What I was seeing was Bachelorette Rachel. Not the real Rachel I’ve come to know and love. At this point, late in the stage where I’ve expressed and shown my absolutely love for you…I feel upset and disappointed that I wasn’t able to get that from you."

For some time, Rachel had been attempting to understand their connection better, and during the dream suite, she had finally been able to, Rachel stated to Zach. Zach acknowledged that when Rachel suddenly expressed worry about his age, he felt "blindedsided."

"I was just trying to find that missing piece for me," Rachel said. "And I did think if we spent the night talking, that I could find it." Zach told Rachel he loved her but had to leave. Rachel made no attempt to persuade him to remain. "I truly need you to know that I wish I could’ve gotten there," she pleaded. The two parted on uneasy terms as Rachel took him to his car, and they parted ways. Rachel returned to the rose ceremony and presented roses to her two remaining guys, Aven Jones and Tino Franco. She also expressed her disappointment that someone would question her character at this stage, but she didn't want to discuss Zach anymore.

Meanwhile, Zach was crying as he was being driven away. “I could see in her eyes that it meant something different to her than it did to me,” Zach explained. “I don’t know what I missed. I saw it that night in the fantasy suite that it was off. I don’t know. This still doesn’t feel real. She was, in my mind, the future Mrs. Shallcross. Her response felt so cold. I thought it meant more, but I guess maybe it didn’t. One of the things that I fell in love with was that she made me feel special. I cared for her. And I question if that was even real.”

Fans were quick to notice how unaffected Rachel was with Zach leaving. One of them tweeted: "Rachel while Zach is crying in the car #TheBachelorette." Confused with Zach's statement of meeting Bachelorette Rachel during the fantasy suite, a fan wrote: "Who wants to tell Zach he met the REAL Rachel in the fantasy suite and he’s been flirting with the bachelorette all season? #TheBachelorette #BachelorNation." Seeing Rachel not fight for Zach, another fan tweeted: "Rachel really play Zach dirty. She never fight for him to stay. She never loved him. This boy really deserve a happy ending #TeamZach #TheBachelorette." Some fans are left confused when Rachel told her other suitors how her character had been questioned: "I’m sorry, where did Zach question her character? I’m questioning her character rn thooo. #TheBachelorette."





Some fans felt Rachel wasn't really attentive of what Zach had to say during their breakup: "Was Rachel paying ANY attention to what Zach was saying? Like seriously #TheBachelorette #bachelorette." Fans were mad to see Rachel continuously interrupt Zach while he was trying to call things off: "I don't like how Rachel is trying to break up with Zach when Zach was trying to break up with Rachel #TheBachelorette." Fans also feel Zach's age was not the reason why Rachel wasn't interested in him: "I think we should acknowledge that Rachel clearly just wasn’t that into Zach but part of the show is leading the guys on until it’s time to send them home. I feel like the discussion of his age was her trying not to get his hopes up. #bachelorette #TheBachelorette." Another fan wrote: "Rachel clearly had no intention of giving Zach a rose. And literally zero feeling for his feelings. #coldcoldheart #rachel #TheBachelorette."
