We're nearing the end of our Golden Bachelor journey, which means that Gerry Turner and his final two women have made their way to a romantic destination abroad. With their new stunning Costa Rican scenery also comes time for the highly anticipated dates in the Fantasy Suites, and I'm pretty sure this is how Gerry's feeling right about now:

Theresa Nist and Leslie Fhima made their way to The Springs Resort & Spa in Arenal, Costa Rica to spend some time with Gerry ahead of the finale. Our Golden Bach gushed about his final two ladies with host Jesse Palmer, and he revealed that he's in love with Leslie because of her "playful" and "authentic" vibes. On the other hand, Gerry said that he has a special bond with Theresa because they've both lost a spouse—but he felt that not telling Theresa that he loves her was a mistake.

Gerry's first date in Costa Rica went to Leslie, and the pair went rappelling down a massive waterfall. Despite her nerves, Leslie took on the challenge and shared a sweet moment with Gerry, where they said how proud they were of each other. They then had a romantic dinner where they discussed their potential living situation should they end up together in the end, and then they got down to business and talked about "knocking boots"—aka bumping uglies, doing the deed, you get the gist.

"The opportunity for Leslie and I to have a potential overnight is extremely crucial to me making the ultimate decision in this journey," Gerry said in a confessional. He told Leslie that he hadn't had sex "in a really long time" while she said that it had been a year since she last got physically intimate with someone. After having an ~emotional~ conversation about Leslie's journey to finding love, Gerry comforts her and tells her she's the one.

"I have to have you with morning coffee. I have to have you when I go to bed at night," he told her. "I don't know how we would decide where we would live. We'll have to figure that out. But I think there's no one else I'd rather try to figure it out with." The sweetness! 🥹

Then... they headed to the Fantasy Suite. During a confessional, Gerry acknowledged that people want to know what exactly goes down in the suite (hi, hello, that's why we're all here in the first place). "And quite honestly, I feel like it's none of their fucking business!" he said. Well, then.

The next day, he went on his date with Theresa and had trouble transitioning into horseback riding mode after sharing an intimate evening with Leslie. Theresa tried to comfort him as she sensed there was something on his mind, and then the show cut to Gerry during his confessional, where he said he was wondering about Leslie during his date with Theresa. Ouch.

Thankfully, his dinner with Theresa went much better than their daytime date. Theresa told Gerry about how she got started in her career as a trader and that she figured she'd always have to work if she was single (Ahem, can someone remind Theresa that it's 2023 and not 1950? Tysm). Gerry opened up about his feelings towards her and noted that he feels like "she "has her shit together" before they headed to the Fantasy Suite.

"He saw a side of me he didn’t know existed," Theresa gushed during her confessional, while Gerry said, "I feel like it's the first day of the rest of my life. I realize we understand each other on a fundamental level… Last night, I told her I loved her."

TLDR: the Fantasy Suite dates lead to undeniable romance and intimacy, and now, it seems like it's fair game between Gerry's final two. 👀
