THE Bachelorette has made history by announcing that both Rachel Recchia and Gabby Windey will be next season's leading ladies.
It was revealed during Tuesday night's After the Final Rose special that the two women will star in season 19 together.
Host Jesse Palmer left commercial airline pilot Rachel, 26, and ICU nurse Gabby, 31, stunned when he revealed they would be the new Bachelorettes.
The ladies – who were sitting in the audience at the time – hugged each other tightly.
Rachel exclaimed, "You deserve this," to which Gabby said: "No, you do! Oh my God!"
They walked over to join Jesse on the couch, who said: "That is right. This is crazy. For the first time ever, we will have two Bachelorettes for the entire season."

He said: "At the end of the day, watching you both support each other in Iceland, and also have you have tonight, that was really the big reason why we decided to give you the shot. You really are deserving of this."
