If you didn’t already love Will, then you likely fell for him after Monday’s episode of The Bachelorette when he did his best to be diplomatic while trying to make Lee see a point of view other than his own. I don’t know how much it actually worked, but Will showed how genuine he is, which is why his elimination on Tuesday night was such a blow to some fans. But what is Will doing now after The Bachelorette?
He made some friends while on the show, there’s no doubt about that, and he also seems to support many of them through social media. After it was announced that there would be an internal investigation into the Bachelor in Paradise allegations of sexual misconduct while filming, Will took to Instagram to send his support for former Bachelorette contestant DeMario, stating:
None of you got to know or see Demario the way that those of us in the house did; if you had you would know that he is one of the most straightforward and caring ppl you could ever care to know. Those first few days he went out of his way to get to know everyone, take time to make sure that some of the guys who may have been having a hard time dealing with the stresses of the day to day of being on the show felt comfortable and at ease.
You can just tell the type of genuine and real guy that he is — one who I thought was a definite contender for Rachel's heart. But even though he didn’t get the chance to make it further on this season of The Bachelorette, he was still easily one of the more down-to-earth guys on the roster.
Since The Bachelorette ended for Will, it looks like he’s been spending time with his family and also his newfound Bachelor Nation friends, like Josiah and Bryan, in Florida. And if he didn’t get the girl, at least he got the consolation prize of a couple new BFFs, right?
When Rachel sent Will home on The Bachelorette Tuesday night, it was because the romance in general and romantic connection just wasn't there. During their one-on-one date in Sweden, Rachel talked to the camera about her concerns. "The most that Will's done today is hold my hand and even that's a stretch," she said after revealing that something felt like it was missing with him.
It definitely seemed like Rachel was into Will and as a whole he was starting to really come to the forefront of the show without being involved in all of the drama and fighting. But even though the two look good on paper, Will just wasn't doing it for Rachel romantically.
But when you have a dozen or so guys to compete with, it’s hard to really give yourself to the Bachelorette and get in that legitimate quality time. And with just one opportunity to have a one-on-one dates under his belt, Will just didn’t get the chance to really connect with Rachel as much as he could have.
