Faced with incoming viewer backlash following Monday’s episode of The Bachelorette, Frank Neuschaefer – who leaves Ali Fedotowsky high, dry and heartbroken in Tahiti – is keeping a low profile in Chicago with girlfriend Nicole Caruso, the girlfriend he returns to post-Tahiti. Still, he has one request, Crushable has learned: Remember the lavish Turkish rug he purchased for Ali during their one-on-one date in Istanbul? Ali was supposed to give it back but still has it. “She was meant to send it to me and didn’t,” he texted our source, who was concerned. Otherwise, Frank is mum on how the dramz plays out: “All I know is that he’s still with Nicole.”
