How Did Gabby & Clayton Meet?

Windey first met Echard when she was one of 31 women vying for his heart on season 26 on “The Bachelor.”

The two formed a strong connection on the show, landing Windey a spot in Echard’s final three. At the final rose ceremony of the season, Echard surprised Windey and Rachel Recchia when he revealed he had been intimate with both of them. He also shared that frontrunner Susie Evans had left the show during their Fantasy Suite date.

Windey and Recchia decided to stay on the show after Echard’s confession but he later broke things off with both of them to pursue a relationship with Evans.

Windey called out Echard during their breakup scene, accusing the Missouri native of not being honest about his feelings.

“I actually don’t know who you are at all,” she said. “I can’t believe anything you say. Not one thing.”

Windey went on to star alongside Recchia as co-leads on season 19 of “The Bachelorette” in 2022. Windey accepted a proposal from finalist Erich Schwer in the last episode but the two never made it down the aisle. They broke up in November 2022.

Windey spoke about her relationship with Echard in a July 2022 interview with Entertainment Tonight. The ABC star told the outlet that she and Recchia wish Clayton “nothing but the best.”

Charity Lawson’s season of “The Bachelorette” will premiere on Monday, June 26 at 9 p.m. Eastern Standard time on ABC.
