It was the moment that broke Bachelor In Paradise viewers’ hearts.
“It’s very important for me to find someone. I don’t know why it hasn’t happened for me yet,” she tearfully told a producer on the show.
“I know it’ll happen when I least expect it, but I’m tired of hearing that, I’ve heard it like, hundreds of times and I’m sick of hearing it!”
It was arguably the realest and most honest moment of the whole series, and something Rachael has since discovered a lot of other women can relate to.
“Everyone has been so nice. I think half the nation was crying,” she tells Mamamia.
“All the single women, 30 years old were crying. Lots and lots of people have said to me that they can relate, and it’s so nice to see real and raw emotions of people.”
Rachael says up until last night, it was one of her “deepest, darkest secrets”.
“I’ve got a younger sister who’s got a beautiful baby boy and a beautiful husband, and it’s nice going around to see them, but half the time, you’re thinking, ‘I wish it was me,'” she adds.
And she says a lot of women she knows feel the same way.
“They’re the conversations that I sit around and have with my girlfriends, who are also my age and still single. I’ve got so many incredibly beautiful friends that are all single still, and it’s just so weird,” she says.
