After Susie Evans left, Echard decided to tell the truth to Recchia and Windey. He said that he was in love and was intimate with both of them. This broke the ladies’ heart and Windey decided to walk out.
However, Echard went behind her and convinced her to stay, leaving Recchia waiting with a rose in her hand. Eventually, the show’s lead succeeded in convincing Windey to give him a second chance and thus, she accepted the rose.
Post all this drama, he shattered their hearts once again by breaking up with them. The two ladies met his family, who loved them both. But Echard still wanted Evans to return and said that she was his everything. Thus, he ended his relationship with the other two women.
Before leaving, Windey told Echard that she didn’t believe a word he said about love. She further blasted him by saying that he only wanted Evans because she had hurt his pride by leaving him. The suitress even rejected his offer to walk her out to the car.
