Rachel Recchia and Tino Franco connected right from the beginning of the season, but there’s about to be major conflict for the couple in The Bachelorette finale. Tino and Rachel had their first taste of conflict when Rachel met Tino’s family. Tino’s parents didn’t seem convinced that Rachel and Tino were right for each other given the show’s context, and they made sure Rachel knew their true feelings.

More recently, Tino’s father, Joe, has taken to social media to share his feelings about the show. “Bachelor Nation will be sorry when they don’t have me to kick around,” he posted to Facebook, according to a Reddit thread. ” … Watch The Bachelorette tonight at 8 for the (yawn) most shocking finale ever (just part one). So glad it’s almost over!!!”

Many fans don’t approve of Joe’s posts. “Normally, I like to be forgiving to family members because they didn’t sign up for the show and it’s probably really intimidating, but this man does NOT pass the vibe check and I feel really bad for Tino,” a Reddit user wrote.

Are Rachel Recchia and Tino Franco still together?

If Rachel Recchia and Tino Franco found lasting love on the show, Joe Franco might have a different opinion. So, are Rachel and Tino still together after The Bachelorette Season 19 finale?

According to The Bachelorette spoilers from Reality Steve, Tino and Rachel are no longer together. “At some point after the engagement, Rachel told Tino when she moved to LA she wanted to give back the ring and just date,” he wrote. “Why it got to that point with Rachel, I’m not sure. That’s not what Tino wanted, but apparently never told her that wouldn’t work for him because he was afraid he’d lose her. … After she told him this is when the relationship was murky, communication was poor, and during a night out, Tino kissed another girl.”

It seems likely that Tino’s father remains outspoken on social media because of how the finale plays out.
