Gabby Windey rose to fame in reality television after appearing on Clayton Echard’s “The Bachelor” season. She continued her time in the “Bachelor” franchise when she and her close friend, Rachel Recchia, became the co-leads of “The Bachelorette,” where Windey got engaged to Erich Schwer. A few weeks after the finale aired, the reality television personality announced her split from Schwer when she was competing on “Dancing With the Stars.”

The former “Bachelorette” lead had some fun as she hilariously danced around her house to Beyonce’s “My Husband” on TikTok. Her caption grabbed followers’ attention as she wrote, “idk where he is tho.”

One fan commented, “he’s in paradise, so you better be going 👀,” Windey replied with the looking-eye emoji, “👀,” seemingly hinting that she may be going to the beach this season.

In addition to Windery, Ariel Frenkel, who appeared on the most recent season of “The Bachelor” with Zach Shallcross, went onto Nick Viall’s podcast to confirm she is still single, to which Viall asked if fans would see her on the beaches in Mexico for “Bachelor In Paradise.”

“We’ll see,” she said. “It’s the same thing with overnights, right? I don’t say things and then go against them. So, I’m always open-minded, but I don’t know how I feel about returning to something like that.”

“I also feel like the beach would be very different than what I experienced,” she added.

And Johnny DePhillipo first appeared in the “Bachelor” franchise on Rachel Recchia and Gabby Windey’s season of “The Bachelorette.” Then he went on to get engaged during the last season of “Bachelor In Paradise” before breaking it off with Victoria Fuller due to cheating allegations; he also hinted he might return to the beach this year.
