SEE IT: Rachel Recchia’s Reaction To Gabby Windey On DWTS Has Fans Talking

Gabby Windey completed her first routine on “Dancing With the Stars” during the live premiere to air on Disney+ on Monday, September 19, 2022.

The “Bachelorette” star ended up having a great outing with her pro partner Val Chmerkovskiy and had one of the highest scores of the night for her jive. Windey, who was an NFL cheerleader, seemed to adapt well to ballroom dancing, and she performed her very first dance very well, based on the judges’ feedback — and her scores.

And while many had their opinions on Windey before she came out and danced, it seems her sympathy has grown considerably and she has set herself up as a real contender for season 31. Meanwhile, there was one person who always believed in her and who was in the live audience cheering her on – her best friend and “Bachelorette” counterpart, Rachel Recchia.

Here’s what you need to know:

Before it was even Windey’s time to do her first dance, Recchia took to social media to ask fans to vote and share videos from the ballroom. Recchia sat next to Chmerkovskiy’s wife Jenna Johnson and two ladies couldn’t have been more excited to watch the show.

After Windey and Chmerkovskiy’s dance, the camera moved over the Recchia, who had a big smile on her face and cheered loudly for her friend. Fans took to Reddit to comment on Recchia’s support for Windey.

“If Rachel looks happier dancing Gabby than any of her guys this season,” the person who started the Reddit thread wrote, sharing a photo of Recchia looking super proud.

“Rachel had this energy while Gabby was dancing and it was cute,” added another.

“The true love story of the season,” said a third person.

“Of course this is in the moment. I’m so glad Rachel was there for the premiere of Gabs. And even if this is true, it still fulfills my wish for the season. #girlsforever,” a fourth Redditor noted.

After filming for “The Bachelorette” wrapped up, Windey and Recchia were dining with an ABC exec and it was Recchia who pushed her friend to participate in the reality competition show.

“Gabby is really busy—and this is the honest truth from God—she’s standing up because of Rachel,” senior vice president, Alternative Series, Specials & Late-Night Programming at ABC Entertainment Robert Mills told Entertainment Tonight. “When we were at the CMA Fest in Nashville in June, we were having dinner and Rachel said, ‘You have to put Gabby on Dancing With the Stars. This is her dream. She would be so good. Please, please put her on,” he recalled.

Mills admitted that Windey wasn’t on the list of DWTS potential, but Recchia changed that — and she’s ultimately the reason Windey got on the show — and it’s paying off.

Fans seemed to love Windey and Chmerkovskiy’s energy and their dance scored highly for the first night. The two were easily safe after the live voting ended and fans can’t wait to see what these two have in store for week two.
