At the end of The Bachelorette 2022, Tino Franco and Rachel Recchia were involved in a lot of startling controversies. Despite Tino’s proposal to Rachel, their love tale does not end happily ever after.
There was a rumor going around that Tino cheated on Rachel when things were hard in their engagement. This is what we know about the enigmatic lady in question. As seen in “The Bachelorette,” Tino cheated on Rachel after the couple got engaged.
Tino and Rachel’s relationship hit a tough stretch after their Bachelorette finale engagement. Rachel told Jesse Palmer during the live broadcast, “We went through a difficult time.” Then she said that she and Tino broke up because he cheated.
When Tino admitted to Rachel that he had cheated, she confronted him on camera, and viewers watched in real-time. He admitted, “I messed up, and I kissed another girl, but I knew I belonged with you the second I did.” To paraphrase, “This was the minor thing ever… I made an effort to move on from it.
Rachel has previously revealed that Tino first resisted telling her about his infidelity and that she had to “drag” the truth from him. And she went as far as to tell Gabby that Tino had told her he was sorry for being honest with her.
With whom did Tino cheated on Rachel ?
Never once did Tino divulge the identity of the lady he kissed on The Bachelorette. Not even Reality Steve or other online sleuths have released her identity, probably for the best. Tino did, however, reveal some background on the lady in question.
He told Rachel they went on a date before filming The Bachelorette, but they had never even exchanged numbers. And Tino thought he had better not “muddy the waters” before going on the show, he said. Tino saw this woman after the show concluded and said they had “a lot of catching up to do.”
Later, during the debut week of The Bachelorette, Rachel and Tino had an agitated phone conversation. He confessed to Rachel, “The things you said hurt so much that I drew back from my journal.” Yet, as Rachel pointed out, “Never once did we ever announce, ‘We are broken up.
The statement, “We are not engaged,'” was echoed by Tino. Rachel further clarified that her difficulties predated Tino’s infidelity and had nothing to do with their relationship. If so, have Tino and Rachel stayed together for good?
Tino and Rachel’s relationship ended when Rachel caught him kissing another woman and confronted him. After they finished talking, she returned Tino’s engagement ring, breaking their engagement. When Aven came out on stage with Rachel at the end of Tino and Rachel’s episode of After the Final Rose, Tino and Rachel departed the show together.
