Gabriela Windey On Bachelor

“I want to be fully, fully transparent, and I know it’s not easy to hear, but I was intimate with both of you,” he said. As the trailer progressed, the faces of two women were exposed, and later one of them was heard saying, “He’s in love with all three of us?”
Soon, the internet was put to work, and fans speculated the three women to be Genevieve P., Rachel R., and our star Gabriela Windey.
Even Reality Steve, surprised by the clip, went on to reveal that the two women standing with Clayton in the trailer were Sarah (brunette) and Rachel (blonde). “My guess this was in Vienna before he Sarah went home/was sent home & he kept Rachel,” he added.
Also, Reality Steve said that he had no idea how the elimination went but was sure that Clayton found love this season.
