It’s not always easy being a contestant in the Bachelor franchise.
“I did have a couple hard days,” Leslie said. “[When] you take Faith [Martin] on a date, it’s really hard because it brings up past feelings from other relationships because I have been cheated on.”
As she started to cry, Gerry embraced her and comforted her, saying, “I gotcha, it’s OK.”
Leslie admitted that she’s crazy about Gerry, telling him: “My feelings for you are really foreign to me because I haven’t felt that way in a really long time.” The pair kissed after he shared a similar sentiment.
“I felt such joy with you. I felt so protective,” Gerry said.
Leslie is one of the three women still in the running for Gerry’s final rose.
The Golden Bachelor airs on ABC Thursdays at 8 p.m. ET. For a recap of week 5, watch the video above.
