WATCH: RACHAEL COLLAPSES AFTER FAILING TO GET RICHIE'S ROSE
She told viewers, "My heart was physically beating out of my chest."
But the same can't be said for Rich, who told viewers himself that he didn't want to see any of his exes.
So when Rachael bounded up to him - three years after he said "adios" on his Bachie season's home visits - he was startled.
"Oh sh*t," he muttered under his breath, followed by a, "You've changed your hair," to Rach directly.
Even Rachael admitted his reaction her was "f**king awkward."
But it was Richie's piece to camera that really confirmed his future with his lovelorn, number-one crush.
Turning to the viewers, he explained, "I've met Rachael before on my season of The Bachelor... yeah, umm, I don't know how to finish that one... There’s definitely a lot of attractive women, a lot of different personalities."
Then at the end of Wednesday night's episode, he gave his rose to Cass Wood. Awkies.
