She Has ADHD
Gabi opened up about having ADHD during an appearance on the Bachelor Nation podcast “Bachelor Happy Hour” last month.
According to the NHS, ADHD is “a condition that affects people’s behavior.” People with the condition may “seem restless, have trouble concentrating, and may act on impulse.”
The 25-year-old told hosts and former Bachelorettes Michelle Young and Becca Kufrin that it was “difficult” to regulate her emotions on the show because of her disorder.
“I have ADHD,” she said on the Feburary 7 episode of the podcast. “There’s a lot of emotional regulation that you work on and that’s something I’ve been working on for years. When you’re in an environment that’s so overstimulating, it can be really difficult to find that regulation of your emotions.”
Gabi said she went through “a rollercoaster” of emotions on the show because of her ADHD.
“Emotions hit you really hard and really fast when you’re ADHD,” she said.
She Went Through a ‘Hard’ Breakup Before ‘The Bachelor’
On the February 7 episode of “Bachelor Happy Hour,” Gabi spoke about how she ended up getting cast on the show. She told Michelle and Becca that her friends nominated her for “The Bachelor” after she went through a hard breakup.
“Before I went on the show, I had actually gone through a pretty bad breakup,” she said. “I had dated this guy for a few years and it wasn’t the [heathliest] Relationship, so the breakup was really hard on me.”
“I felt like I had invested a lot of my time, and effort, and energy into it,” she continued. “Coming out of [the relationship], I was heartbroken and my friends saw me like that and they were like, ‘Gabby, you have so much to give.”
She revealed her friends nominated her for the show.
“I was definitely nervous because I had been so heartbroken but you can’t just stop trying in life, so I put myself out there,” she said.
She Is Looking for an ‘Honest’ Man
At this point, it is still unclear if Gabi ends up with Zach. Fans will have to wait until the March 27 finale to see if Gabi leaves the show with a ring on her finger.
But we do know what traits Gabi is looking for in her future husband. According to her ABC bio, Gabi wants “an honest, outdoorsy man who will always put her first.”
On the Monday, March 20 episode of “The Bachelor,” viewers saw Gabi open up about her fear of not being put first by a partner. Gabi told Zach she has felt like a “second choice” in past relationships.
“The Bachelor” airs Mondays at 8 p.m. Eastern Standard time on ABC.
