Rick Leach Jr. talks life, love and family reactions after he was sent home on The Bachelorette, on the 3 Things to Know with Stephanie Haney podcast

CLEVELAND — His journey for love on national television may be over, but he still has to confront his ex at least one more time.

Ohio's Rick Leach Jr. was sent home by Michelle Young during week six of The Bachelorette, but he'll be returning during next week's "Men Tell All" special on December 6 on ABC to say his final peace to the 28-year-old teacher from Minnesota.

In a wide-spanning conversation, Rick, a graduate of Walsh University in North Canton, joins me on my 3 Things to Know with Stephanie Haney podcast, to share why he thinks he and Michelle weren't a match, and how his family felt about him sharing personal details about their lives with not only Michelle, but also millions of viewers.

The 32-year-old sales professional gives behind-the-scenes details about why it was easier for him to open up to Michelle than it has been with other partners, what his current dating situation is, and exactly how long he spent waiting under that table on night one before he could chat up the woman who would eventually break up with him.

Plus, I share why Canton's William McKinley Presidential Library and monument is the dynamic spot that you Need to Know in NEO, along with what makes The Bachelorette Michelle Young A Good Follow on Twitter and Instagram.
