After weeks of drama, tears, more tears, and everything in between, Gabi Elnicki made it to The Bachelor Season 27 hometown date episode alongside Charity Lawson, Ariel Frenkel, and Kaity Biggar. The episode, which aired on Monday, March 14th, started with Zach going down to Vermont to meet up with Gabi. The pair then embarked on what Gabi had tagged “a full maple experience.” It seemed like a curious choice for a date, given that Zach didn’t seem much of a maple fan when she first made him try some on night one.
However, after failing to get any tree sap, Gabi made Zach take a blind maple syrup test which he unsurprisingly failed. Afterward, the pair headed off to meet with Gabi’s family, including her recently engaged elder, Chloe. While Zach was getting acquainted with her family, Gabi casually joked about how it would be nice to have their weddings planned together.
Gabi and Zach finally get a moment alone after the meeting, and the two have a heart-to-heart about their relationship, ending with Zach promising not to forget her as he embarks on his other hometown dates. Despite the awkward date, Gabi survived the episode by getting a rose from Zach. However, with Season 27 winding to an epic finale and a proposal still in view — here’s everything you need to know about potential season 27 winner Gabi Elnicki.
The Bachelor’s Gabi – Age and Hometown
25-year-old Gabi Elnicki hails from Pittsford, Vermont, but currently resides in Houston, Texas. Gabi is a travel buff, and photos from her Instagram feed show her in different cities across the country, such as Alabama, Georgia, and California. She has even done some overseas traveling to the Netherlands and many more. However, Gabi remains fiercely devoted to her roots. The reality TV star is close to her family and describes her parents’ long-lasting marriage as “the blueprint for the kind of love she hopes to find.”
Gabi is a proud alum of the University of Mississippi — graduating in 2019 with a Bachelor of Business Administration degree. During her sorority days, she was a member of Pi Beta Phi. The brunette bombshell currently works as a senior account executive for a company based in Houston, Texas. Gabi has been working in the company for three years and is focused on building her career. According to her ABC bio, Gabi has dreams of running her own Pilates studio sometime in the future. She would also like to maximize her current detour into reality TV and see how it can help build her career.
Gabi is pretty active on Instagram, sharing her adventurous lifestyle and interests with over 55k followers. Her follower count has increased markedly since the show’s beginning and would most likely skyrocket if she emerged as the winner. The 25-year-old reality star leaves a brief description of herself on her bio for visitors, which reads, “spicier than your average buffalo wing.”
And there is no better word to describe her Instagram photos and videos. Most of her photos show her flaunting her toned figure, and apart from being a travel buff, she is a beach lover and really into the sea. She also showcases her friends and has been very involved in planning some of their engagements and weddings. If she does get a ring from Zach, the Vermont native will have no shortage of hands to help her plan her special day. After all, one good turn deserves another!
