Rachel Recchia Answers If She’s Dating Aven after Bachelorette Finale

It was one of the most shocking returns in the history of The Bachelorette and we’re all for it.

Aven Jones surprised Rachel Recchia and all of Bachelor Nation at the After The Final Rose, when he asked her out on live t.v.

Aven said, “I wanted to just come by and say that, like, this is tough, and you don’t really deserve any of this. I was just wondering if you maybe wanted to get out of here and catch up”.

“I would love nothing more,” Rachel replied and they left the scene.

But, where do they stand now?

“We’ll have to wait and see,” Rachel tells ET of her future with Aven. “I think we are just taking things, obviously, very organically and slowly if there were to ever be anything coming out of it. But it really just was nice to have him there to just have him in that moment.”

“When he said that, I don’t even think it was registering in my mind what he said,” Rachel says of the host announcing Aven’s surprise appearance. “I was just trying to get off the stage.”

Rachel also went on to add that Aven “has always just been such a comforting presence in my journey and someone I trust and just have an amazing relationship with.”

“To see him on the side, it was really nice and comforting. It was great to be able to talk to him after having such a hard time.”

What does Rachel have to say about Tino being there when the whole thing took place?

“In the moment, I was, obviously, very confused. That was not Aven’s intention. He was also not under the impression that that was ever going to happen. We do not condone any sort of bullying or humiliation,” she said. “I’m sure Tino felt horrible. I don’t want to, obviously, make him feel like that, regardless of what happened in our relationship. I don’t really know where the timing of all that happened, but it was not Aven’s intention, and I know that.”

Well, they sure look cute together.
