Bachelor Nation Wiki

The 19th season of The Bachelorette premiered on July 11, 2022. The season features 31-year-old Gabby Windey, an ICU nurse and 26-year-old Rachel Recchia, a flight instructor.

Both women first appeared on the 26th season of The Bachelor, where they were rejected by Clayton Echard.

Filming and development[]

Former Bachelor Jesse Palmer was confirmed as the permanent host for the series, replacing interim hosts Tayshia Adams and Kaitlyn Bristowe. Filming began on March 26, 2022, in Los Angeles with locations being reported in France, Belgium, and the Netherlands onboard the Virgin Voyages Valiant Lady cruise ship across the English Channel and North Sea. Additionally, filming occurred at The Wildwoods in Wildwood, New Jersey on April 25, 2022, for Tyler Norris' hometown date with Rachel. With the final portion of filming taking place in Mexico and concluded in mid-May.

The season was delayed from its usual May start for the second time in three years to accommodate for ABC's coverage of the NBA Finals and Stanley Cup Finals.

The rose ceremonies are conducted differently than previous seasons. In week 2, the Bachelorettes alternated handing out roses, with each rose coming from both of them. From week 3 onwards, the contestants had to divide into two groups based on which Bachelorette they were pursuing. If a contestant rejected a rose from one of the Bachelorettes, he would return to the line and wait to see if he received a rose from the other Bachelorette. If he did not receive a rose from the second Bachelorette, he was eliminated.
