Rachel Recchia and Aven Jones will have a romantic one-on-one date in the next episode of The Bachelorette season 19. During the first night, Aven made a lasting impression on Gabby and Rachel, though it soon became clear that Aven desired to pursue Rachel alone.
Rachel and Aven discussed their relationship at the fireplace on night one, where she later expressed her desire for him to kiss her as they already felt an exceptional connection. Later, Aven received Rachel's group date rose during the afterparty at SoFi Stadium, securing him a place in Rachel's group.
Rachel has had three one-on-one dates so far this season, all of which have been challenging. Rachel's first one-on-one of the season was with racecar driver Jordan Vandergriff, with whom she also developed a strong connection after they bonded over their similar occupations on night one. However, Rachel tearfully sent Jordan home at the end of the night because the relationship was not meant to be.
The following week, Rachel and Zach Shallcross met for a very successful one-on-one session in which the two bonded over their love for family and travel. In Rachel's third one-on-one, she met her first impression rose Tino Franco, with whom she enjoyed a romantic date in Paris. Tino received a rose at the end of the date.
The Bachelorette preview clip shows Rachel and Aven discussing family during their one-on-one date in Belgium. Rachel begins by telling Aven that she has been eager to meet him one-on-one for some time and that she is eager to learn more about him and his family.
Aven responded that stability is very important to him and that, while everyone wants a stable relationship with both their parents, he has not had it for several years. The Bachelorette co-lead continued to discuss Aven's relationship with his mother, explaining that the two became very close as he grew up since they were unable to spend enough time together as youngsters.
Aven then shows Rachel a bracelet that his mother made for him and gives it to Rachel as a gift, expressing the hope that it will enable her to have a better time than she has had up to this point. Rachel has struggled with rejection, having been rejected by three men at the second Bachelorette rose ceremony. Aven's bracelet excites her to the point that she admits in a private interview that she could certainly see herself falling in love with him.
Aven is quickly becoming a frontrunner in Rachel's group of men after receiving both a group date rose and a one-on-one date rose. Tino is also a contender, whom Rachel has expressed a desire to fall in love with in the future.
In addition, Rachel appears to be developing a strong connection with Tyler Norris, a New Jersey native who received the group date rose after discussing a previous relationship with Rachel. Although fans cannot wait for the next episode of The Bachelorette to see Aven and Rachel's one-on-one date, they're definitely looking forward to this.
