CLEVELAND — The journey for love is over for one Ohio man, but not the other, on season 18 of ABC's reality dating competition, 'The Bachelorette.'

While Rick Leach, 32, was handed a rose by Michelle Young, 25-year-old Spencer Williams was sent packing during the elimination ceremony that aired on Tuesday night.

Once again, neither man was invited on the highly sought after one-on-one date featured in the episode, and when the final roses were awarded, Williams was one of five men who had to say their goodbyes to this season's leading lady.

Now, Leach remains in the running alongside 13 other men, heading into what will be the fourth week of competition.

Both Williams, a single father and financial crimes analyst living in Cleveland, and Leach, a Walsh University graduate and medical sales representative who is working on his Executive MBA degree at Loyola Marymount University, were invited on a group date to the Palm Springs Air Museum, themed around the upcoming movie, "Top Gun: Maverick," which is set to premiere in 2022.

With stars of the movie Jay Ellis and Glen Powell on hand, the men were asked to proclaim their love to Young while inside a spinning machine, like the kind used to train aviators in the military, and then battled it out amongst themselves in a sort of gauntlet.

At the end of the group date, the coveted group date rose did not go to Williams or Leach, but instead to Martin Gelbspan, a 29-year-old personal trainer from Florida. 

While this forced Williams and Leach to wait until the episode's rose ceremony to learn their fate, ultimately Leach was offered a chance to remain in the competition, and he accepted. The same cannot be said for Williams, who said a respectful goodbye to Young after he was not offered a rose at the elimination ceremony.

"You're an amazing woman, I hope you find what you're looking for," Williams told Young, before giving her a hug goodbye. While they embraced, Young told Williams: "Thank you so much. I appreciate you so much."

On his Instagram story on Tuesday night, Williams shared videos of his reaction to being sent home, showing himself lightheartedly yelling at the television, "C'mon, gimme the rose!"

With Williams now back on the market, you can catch the recap of Leach's and journey for love each Wednesday, following Tuesday's episode of The Bachelorette on ABC.
