Let’s get to know him more over this Rick Leach Wiki.
Rick Leach On Bachelorette
ABC’s The Bachelorette season 18 premiered on October 19, 2021, and following a few contestants, there arrive Rick Leach all rolled up the resort’s driveway, hidden underneath a covered silver platter on a meal cart. Obviously! Michelle was surprised as she opened the lid.
According to Rick, he was the “main course”, and chose to remain inside the meal cart throughout most of the night. Some viewers were creeped out by the stunt but many appreciated his tenancy to make a strong first impression.
Rick might have stood out from the rest with his unforgettable entrance, but he failed to get Michelle’s first impression rose.
