The Bachelor 2022 Winner
The winner for The Bachelor 2022 has not been confirmed yet, but a report by Reality Steve highlights the below,
- Susie Evans, a wedding videographer from Virginia Beach, who is 28 years old
- Rachel Recchia, a flight instructor from Clermont, Florida, 25 years old
- Gabby Windey, is a 30-year old ICU nurse from Denver, Colorado.
However, the Reddit post suspects either Susie or Rachel as the winner because both follow Cary Fatman, the costume designer for the last two contestants for the Final Rose Ceremony.
