Gabby Windey looked captivating during The Bachelorette 2022 premiere. She first captured the hearts of fans when she appeared on Clayton Echard’s season of The Bachelor, as her goofy humor was a welcome change to the franchise. So, how tall is Gabby?

Prior to The Bachelor or The Bachelorette, Gabby worked as an NFL cheerleader for the Denver Broncos for five years. Presently, she works as an ICU nurse. “I’ve always loved being a nurse,” she said on the Talking It Out podcast. “I’m grateful to have given back.”

As for Rachel Recchia, she’s much shorter than Gabby. Rachel made an excellent first impression on Clayton on The Bachelor, and many fans suspected she might win Clayton’s heart. So, how tall is Rachel? She’s only 5-feet-2-inches, making her much shorter than Gabby, according to Heavy.

Gabby Windey and Rachel Recchia’s height differences likely mean they’re going to get styled differently on The Bachelorette 2022. Cary Fetman, Bachelor Nation’s chief wardrobe stylist for over 20 years, spoke to Entertainment Weekly about how he’s styling each woman.

“Gabby’s style is very sexy,” Fetman told the publication. “She is the girl that probably lived next door to you that never wanted to wear clothes and just was constantly ripping off her clothes. … Rachel’s style — her self-described style, which I don’t necessarily agree with — is ‘mother of the bride.’ She doesn’t want to look that way, but she feels as though that’s the type of clothes that she picks.”

Fetman also mentioned the ladies sometimes choose the same dresses to wear, and they have to decide who gets them. “It’s amazing to me because their taste is so different, but there were at least 10 dresses that they both picked on different days, and I’d think, ‘OK how do I decide? Which one gets that dress, seeing that you both have fallen in love with the dress?'” he added.

How old is Gabby Windey? What is Rachel Recchia’s age?
