Jason gushed about the date but admitted in a confessional that he was not ready to get engaged to Gabby.

He broke the news to her during dinner and Gabby after getting emotional fled the table.

‘He was always someone I saw myself with, from the very beginning. So to wait this long to hear where he’s at, like definitely hurts,’ Gabby said.

Jason then told Gabby that it was a ‘really special day’ and felt like it was a big step in their relationship.

‘Do you want to like spend the rest of the night kind of trying to figure this out? Maybe,’ Gabby said.

‘Yeah. I think that is all I want is just like time to spend with you that we can truly get to know each other and, yeah, in like an intimate, private way. That would be the best thing ever,’ Jason told her.

The next morning, Gabby said in a confessional that she was ‘hurt and devastated’ after they were talking in circles and couldn’t agree whether they needed more time.

‘I was like, ‘Maybe it’s just not meant to be.’ And then he was like, ‘Yeah, definitely.’ Like when were you gonna tell me that?,’ she added.

Gabby then went to say good-bye to Jason and told him that her mind was ‘just kind of spinning’ after waking up.

She reminded Jason that he questioned if their relationship was real and said he couldn’t see her in the ‘outside world’.

Jason said it was ‘incredibly tough’ for him and said he needed the private time to realize it wasn’t going to work for them.

‘I’m sorry. I genuinely want the best for you and think you’re an amazing person, but I’m really sorry,’ Jason told her.

‘Like I truly just want you to realize, you know, I’ve been led on,’ Gabby told him.

‘Yeah,’ Jason replied.

Gabby said she had nothing else to say and then gave Jason a hug before walking out of his room.

‘It’s like I feel so stupid. I thought I knew him, but like, I really don’t. I’ve tried so hard to not be reckless with other people, and he was reckless with me. He never loved me. So what were we doing?,’ Gabby sobbed in a confessional.

‘I just don’t know what it is about me that’s so hard to love,’ she cried.

Flight instructor Rachel, 26, went on her third and last Fantasy Suite date with Zach Shallcross, 25, of Anaheim, California.

They bounced around shops in Puerto Morelos, Mexico, where they drank tequila and enjoyed a mariachi band together.

‘Zach has kind of been killing it today. We have a great time every single time we’re together. And the relationship between Zach and I is really powerful, and he loves me and wants to take care of me. But with Tino and Aven, I also have such an incredible connection, so I’m just struggling. It’s like a lot harder than I ever thought. And I think people can’t even begin to understand how much stress I’m under, because how do I even get to a point emotionally where I can break up with any of these men who are the most incredible men I’ve ever met?,’ Rachel said in a confessional.

Rachel later admitted that she was a ‘little bit off’ because she was blindsided at this point in the season when she and Gabby participated on season 26 of The Bachelor.

Zach tried to put her at ease and they later read the message from host Jesse Palmer, 43, inviting them to stay in the Fantasy Suite.

‘So what do you think?,’ Rachel asked.

‘I think I would love the opportunity to spend the Fantasy Suite with you tonight,’ Zach answered as they started kissing.

They both went into the Fantasy Suite with Zach feeling confident the night would provide them both with answers.

‘Wow. I’m in love with this woman. And I want tonight to be where we can talk about the really important stuff,’ said Zach in a confessional adding that he expected to ‘feel more in love with the future Mrs. Shallcross’.

The next morning they had coffee together and Rachel said she hoped their conversations helped him gain clarity.

Zach told Rachel they were on the ‘same page’, but revealed in a confessional that his Fantasy Suite experience was not what he expected.

He said Rachel brought up his age and wondered if he was ready for a commitment and said her concern came out of nowhere.

‘She was putting on a front. That scares me. That scares me a lot,’ Zach said.

He later knocked on Jesse’s door for a talk and wiped tears away as he told him that he was ‘completely lost’ after his Fantasy Suite experience with Rachel.

‘She was different. I was different. And the strange thing for me was, you know, when the cameras were away and it was just her and I talking, it felt like she was just like not showing her true self. It was very unauthentic sometimes,’ Zach said.
