'The Bachelorette' 2022: Why did Gabby and Rachel cancel rose ceremony? Fans say 'want consistency'
A Bachelorette season unlike any other was kicked off by Rachel Recchia and Gabby Windey. Although the new format didn't have any rules at first, Rachel and Gabby's choice to postpone the rose ceremony on night one has puzzled fans.
Rachel and Gabby were tasked with giving out first impression roses to the men they loved after having one-on-ones with as many men as they could. The pair discussed how their evenings had gone so far to choose who their first possible suitor would be. Jesse Palmer, the show's host, placed the first impression roses on the table, and Rachel grabbed hers to give to Tino. "I really look forward to getting to know you more," Rachel said to Tino before they kissed for the second time in the night.
Gabby handed Mario her first impression rose, and they kissed again after sharing a heated embrace earlier. Since the girls needed to give out more roses, Jesse welcomed everyone to the season's first rose ceremony. But before anything could begin, Rachel and Gabby whisked Roby and the twins away. "We've kind of come to the decision that there might not be a connection there for us," Rachel said on behalf of herself and Gabby.
When the Bachelorettes returned to the group, they stated that they had sent Joey, Justin, and Roby home earlier in the night after speaking with them. Rachel and Gabby regretted the fact that they didn't have time to speak with all of the men."Tonight, we felt like we didn't have enough time to really get to know you all and that would be doing ourself and you all a disservice," Gabby explained. "So we are asking you to move forward with us and cancel the rose ceremony tonight."
With that, 29 guys were invited to continue to the following week. "For those of you we didn't speak with tonight, we look forward to getting to know you better next week," Rachel addressed the remaining boys. With the cancelation of the season's first rose ceremony, viewers are more confused than ever. They flocked to social media to query the new format and whether there would be any further changes to the show.
A fan pointed out that the girls might have made history on the Bachelor franchise after canceling the rose ceremony on the first night. They wrote: "Gabby and Rachel actually just made history by cancelling the rose ceremony the first night!!! #TheBachelorette." Viewers call the first episode a game changer as three men left the show and the rose ceremony got canceled all at once, with no drama whatsoever. One fan wrote: "What a game changer for night 1 and first rose ceremony: no drama, no bad guy, sending the twins home, everyone else staying another week #TheBachelorette." Fans also agree with the girls for canceling the rose ceremony as it seemed fair to the guys who didn't get the chance to have a one-on-one conversation with the girls. A tweet read: "Finally!!! There's no reason to have a rose ceremony without talking to everyone!!!!! #TheBachelorette."

Not only the fans but the contestants on the show were as confused with the girls' decision. A fan on Twitter jokingly wrote: "Even just trying to do the math on this rose ceremony #TheBachelorette." However, some confused fans demand consistency as they find it hard to grasp the new format. One fan tweeted: "a canceled rose ceremony on NIGHT ONE? I’m all for changing it up but i need consistency please #TheBachelorette."
