Spoiler Alert: This article contains spoilers for Season 19 of The Bachelorette.

The nineteenth season of The Bachelorette is in full swing, and Rachel Recchia and Gabby Windey are getting closer and closer to concluding their respective journeys as the joint leads.

The ladies and their remaining cast of guys have officially left the Bachelor Mansion for Europe, and love is certainly in the air for some of the stars.

The men (well, for the most part), have officially decided whether they want to pursue Gabby or Rachel for the duration of the season. While contestants like James "Meatball" Clarke and Logan Palmer have wavered about their decision, one suitor who has remained steady on his choice throughout is Mario Vassall.

The 31-year-old earned Gabby's first kiss of the season, and he also got the first impression rose on Night 1. He's been pursuing the ICU nurse ever since.

How far does Mario get on 'The Bachelorette' Season 19? (SPOILERS)

Though the recipients of the first impression roses tend to go far on any given season of The Bachelor or The Bachelorette, Mario's fate on the dating series is currently unknown.

While there are rumored spoilers circulating about how Rachel and Gabby's final weeks may go, there's some uncertainty surrounding the latter star's Final Four.

Reality Steve has not officially shared the identity of the last man in Gabby's Final Four, though Steve (the blogger) himself does believe that Gabby went on four hometown dates.

There is, therefore, a chance that Mario could be in the running to ultimately win Gabby's final rose. However, it remains to be seen if the Colorado resident chooses four guys for that portion of the season, or if she will decide to just go on three hometown dates.

New episodes of The Bachelorette air on Mondays at 8 p.m. ET on ABC. You can also stream the series on Hulu.
