Leslie and Gerry from 'The Golden Bachelor' bond over their hearing aids.

Following the romance novel photoshoot, Gerry pulled each woman for a chat to get to know them better. He learned a lot about them, including the fact that Edith loves to cook, Ellen has a master's degree in health education, and April is a very spiritual person. But what did he learn about Leslie?

Well, after they traded compliments, Gerry learned that Leslie is sensitive and has a "soft, gooey inside." She told him she likes to speak from her heart, which led her to reveal something she has in common with Gerry — hearing aids!

In a confessional, Gerry opened up about Leslie's revelation.

"Leslie shows me that she has two hearing aids as well, and I thought that was really kind of darling," he recalled with a bright smile. "And it spoke to how sensitive she is and how warm she is." Ugh, we can't lie — Gerry and Leslie are so adorable, and we're glad to see this moment brought them closer together.
