Gerry’s father, Everett Turner is Team Leslie and he’s not shying away from telling the whole world.
The Golden Bachelor’s father revealed he watched every episode of The Golden Bachelor with his wife Norma and their friends at his Fort Wayne, Indiana home to support their son.
Everett revealed he had hoped his son would pick Leslie Fhima over Theresa Nist.
“I had Leslie picked out. For some reason, I just didn’t care for Theresa,” he said in an interview with The U.S. Sun.
“I was 60 percent for Leslie and 40 percent for Theresa. I couldn’t say why. Right off the bat, Theresa rubbed me the wrong way.”
“But it don’t matter. Now I have to change my tune! I’m bound to like her.”
“If she don’t make him happy, I’ll probably kick her in the butt.” he joked. “I like Theresa. There is not a problem with me not liking her.”
“All I want is for him to be happy,” he added.
Everett and Norma learned he was picking Theresa when the rest of America did, as Gerry kept the winner a secret even from his family.
“I am always tickled to see him. I have always been proud of him. Not only for this Bachelor thing. He’s been terrific,” the proud dad added.
The Golden Bachelor couple Gerry Turner and Theresa Nist were married on January 4, but Gerry’s father, Everett, wasn’t in attendance.
In an interview with People, The Golden Bachelor shared that, because his father wouldn’t be able to make the trip from Indiana to California for their Wedding because of his health, He came up with a different way to include his dad in his special day.
He said, “I made arrangements with a baker in Fort Wayne to take a small replica of the wedding cake to his home address the night of the wedding. He has had watch parties every Thursday, and so we’ll take a little bit of the wedding to him.”
