Bachelor Clayton Echard slammed as ‘TOXIC’ for making Rachel & Gabby cry over his confession he had sex with BOTH women

BACHELOR Clayton Echard has been slammed by fans as ‘TOXIC’ for making Rachel Recchia and Gabby Windey cry in tonight's dramatic finale.

In the first installment of the two-night finale, Clayton left both remaining contestants sobbing as he told them that he was in love with, and he was intimate with, both of them.

Both girls could be heard loudly sobbing during the dramatic Rose Ceremony in Iceland.

Rachel said she'd "never felt a pain like this before", while Gabby told herself: "Maybe it's easier to just go."

Bachelor fans took to Twitter to slam Clayton for upsetting both the women with his shocking confession.

One user wrote: "Everything coming out of Clayton’s mouth is just toxic."

Another echoed: "I’ve never despised a Bachelor more."


Both women were devastated by Clayton’s confession as they struggled to understand that he was in love with both of them.

After he explained that he wanted to explore all the relationships fully, Gabby told him: “Exploring is not definitively loving.”

Clayton told her: “It’s real feelings. I’m in love, I am. But at the end of this, I walk out with only one love.”

Gabby asked him: “How would you feel in my position?” before walking off.

In a confessional, Gabby said: ‘I don’t think you tell multiple women that you’re in love with them. For him saying ‘the woman I walk out with is the woman I love the most’, wrong f**king answer.

"Love isn’t measured. You can’t measure it. So don’t f**king say that. I don’t wanna be loved the most, I wanna be loved for who I am.”

On the other hand, Rachel sobbed in Clayton’s lap as she told him: “I’m so in love with you. I feel like my heart is breaking.”

The Bachelor asked her:"I just want us to take it day by day. My family is here. Can you trust me?"

In the Rose Ceremony, Rachel accepted the rose from Clayton, while Gabby initially declined and told him: "I can’t, I’m sorry. Do you wanna walk me out?"

However, Clayton then talked her out of leaving and made her come back to where the unaccepted rose lay waiting.

Gabby then accepted the rose from Clayton, and the next day, became the first woman to meet his family.


Tonight's devastating developments came after Susie said last week she would not be able to move forward with Clayton if he had been intimate with another woman in the Fantasy Suites.

After he admitted to sleeping with both Gabby and Rachel, Susie said that she had hoped that he wouldn't have done that.

Clayton broke down in tears during tonight's finale as he suddenly felt "so messed up" after Susie dumped him.

The Bachelor star realized how "everything blew up" during his confessional.

He sobbed as he said: "I need somebody to help me, cause I’m so broken."


Clayton was introduced to Bachelor Nation in Michelle Young's season of the Bachelorette, which aired in 2021.

He hails from Eureka, Missouri, and was previously a professional football player.

Clayton played for the Missouri Tigers in 2012 prior to being drafted for the National Football League four years later.

In 2016 he was signed to the Seattle Seahawks.

It is unclear when he left the NFL but according to his Instagram bio, he is now in orthopedic sales.

It's been a challenging season for Clayton, who received a wave of fan backlash for his handling of the Fantasy Suites fallout last week.

His response to Susie’s reaction was described as “gaslighting” as he accused her of dropping a “bombshell” deal-breaker after he was intimate with the other contestants.
