Gabi Elnicki is facing backlash from the Bachelor Nation over ‘shady’ behavior after her fantasy suite date with Zach Shallcross.
Negative comments from the fans started pouring in after the Vermont native shared photos on Instagram right before the Monday night’s episode of the Bachelor.
“Haw yee!” she captioned the pics.
After a fan called out Gabi for deleting all the negative comments on her post, the Bachelor finalist replied saying, “Yes I am. Because I don’t need negativity and hate on my page. It’s so unnecessary and unkind. There is NO reason to put others down, get off my page if you don’t like me.”
Going into the fantasy suite dates with the 3 finalists, Zach said that he would not be physically intimate with any of the contestants.
During the Bachelor’s date with Gabi, she expresses her concerns, “Did I think I was going to get engaged to somebody that I’ve never had sex with? Probably not.”
“But we’re gonna work on it later,” Gabi says with a laugh.
She then later tells the camera: “Zach says he’s not having sex, but I don’t know. Maybe he will.”
The next morning, however, it was revealed that the pair had had sex in the Fantasy Suite after all.
“We both agreed and wanted to have sex together. And it was very special, it was important, and it was what we both wanted and needed for the relationship,” Zach says. “And I feel terrible because obviously I’ve gone against my word and I have, like, fears with how Kaity would feel, how would Ariel feel, how would all the women feel. And I just feel a guilt about the whole week now.”
Zach also felt the need to tell Kaity that he and Gabi slept together.
“I just figured that was the case, but you just telling me it, like, confirming…I get that you wanted to tell me and I know you’re saying that because you respect me, but I honestly just could have went without hearing that,” Kaity tells Zach.
