UNDER THE KNIFE
In February, Rachel released one Tiktok video She talks about her desire for a breast reduction.
She told her fans that she’s wanted to go under the knife for the procedure since she was 17.
Rachel shared in the clip, “OK, this is a really big deal for me, but I wanted to come here and ask if there are women — or which women have had breast reductions?”
She continued, “I was just going through my insurance and [to get] The surgery has been done since I was 17 and I think I will have it done early next month.
“I truly believe that the surgery will absolutely change my life.”
The reality star added, “Not only can I exercise and I’m not in pain, but every woman I’ve ever met who has had the surgery has said it’s been absolutely life-changing.”
Rachel also said she’s dying to share the entire journey with her fans on social media.
At the time she admitted that she was “super, super nervous”.
Having surgery isn’t the only journey Rachel has shared with her fans.
In August 2022, while her season of The Bachelorette was still airing, fans were avidly speculating about the status of her relationship with Tino — a general contractor.
When this season’s Men Tell All special aired, speculation reached an all-time high.
During the show, host Jesse Palmer told fans there was a big surprise coming.
“It’s going to be absolutely shocking,” he warned at the time.
The episode ended, but not before fans noticed Rachel’s odd body language.
She looked nervously at the camera and then at the floor before looking at Jesse.
The star also played with her hands during the segment.
A fan reposted the clip on TikTok and asked, “Please tell me if anyone else saw this?”
In the comments, many Bachelor fanatics agreed that there was something wrong with Rachel, with one writing, “I noticed that too and it makes me think their engagement didn’t work out.”
“Also, she looked pretty unhappy the whole show. Maybe not the happiest ending for her?” agreed another.
A fan said: “I’m assuming that it didn’t work out with her and Tino.”
