Episode 6 of The Bachelorette begins in Amsterdam as Gabby and Rachel prepare for an important week. They have big decisions to make: who will they take on dates in their hometown?
The date cards are read and it turns out that both Zach and Nate are getting their second one-on-one dates of the season. The other men – Ethan and Spencer – who have never done one are not pleased.
Nate and Gabby’s rendezvous takes a sad turn
Nate is delighted to have another opportunity to spend some time with Gabby, but unfortunately that time is cut short. Something certainly seemed amiss as the pair were just wandering around Amsterdam and not participating in normal bachelorette date activities.
Gabby tells Nate that she’s been thinking about how big a responsibility it would be for her to become a mother to his daughter if she and Nate got together. She says that she is afraid of being a mother because she fears she will be bad at it. Although it was a difficult decision, Gabby eventually breaks up with Nate and sends him home. The entire conversation was truly heartbreaking, as you can see in the video shown in the player above. Both Nate and Gabby seem devastated, but it seemed like the right decision.
Rachel and Zach tiptoe through the tulips
Rachel and Zach have a once-in-a-lifetime experience as they romp through fields of thousands of tulips in Holland, snapping polaroids. They then taste cheese and try on clogs before relaxing in a perfectly placed hot tub in the middle of a field of tulips.
The couple meets for an intimate dinner at a museum for the evening portion of their date, and Zach shares that he’s excited at the prospect of Rachel meeting his family. He opens up more to Rachel and tells her how he was really unhappy a few years ago. He decided to turn things around and heal himself so he could share that with someone else.
Zach puts his heart on the line and tells Rachel he’s falling in love with her. She offers him the rose and the couple enjoys a private concert by a string quartet.
Group date with Gabby gets hot
Gabby’s remaining men – Logan, Jason, Erich, Spencer and Johnny – take her on a very unconventional group date. They’re greeted by Suzie, a self-proclaimed “sex expert” who helps them with – erm – things in the bedroom… if you get my meaning. If it sounds uncomfortable, that’s because it was. Jason’s exact quote was, “Honestly, one of my worst nightmares.”
After this very – um – naughty date, Gabby gets a visit from our host Jesse. He tells her that Logan has tested positive for COVID-19. They have to cancel the cocktail party that night and Logan is removed from the show. Feel better soon, Logan! I guess we’ll never know what could have happened between him and Gabby.
Rachel’s “cheesy” group date
Tino, Tyler, Ethan and Aven join Rachel on her group date in Edam, the cheese capital of the world. The men take turns pulling Rachel away for a few tackles, but the competition gets really hot with what can only be described as a deadlift cheese contest. With yokes weighed down with huge loaves of cheese, they must see who can hold out the longest with the weight on their shoulders. Tino turns out to be the winner, and the pair make out in front of all the other guys: Gouda grief, that’s embarrassing.
In the evening portion of their date (cheesy jokes aside), Tyler shares that he’s falling in love with Rachel. She must also fall in love with him because she gives him the rose for the group date. Tino is pretty annoyed after winning the cheese competition. Cheddar luck next time, Tino.
The Rose Ceremony
It’s time for the ladies to make their final decision on who will be going on hometown dates. The roses went like this:
-Tyler (group date rose)
-Zach (One-on-One Date Rose)
This leaves Spencer and Ethan without roses and sends them home. Well actually everyone is going “home” now as next week is hometowns. What will the male families think of our bachelorettes? Watch a new episode of The Bachelorette next Monday at 8/7c on ABC!
