Ever since Zach Shallcross opted out on ‘The Bachelorette’ season 19, we’ve been dying to know: Did he find love after the show ended?
We clearly weren’t the only ones falling in love with the 26-year-old tech executive, because ABC recently selected him as the latest star of ‘The Bachelor.’
Throughout season 27 of the show, which premiered Jan. 23, Shallcross will get to know 30 women in hopes of finding true love.
The eligible bachelor’s biography describes him as a “family man” who is both “charismatic” and “endearing.” While searching for love, Shallcross regards his parents’ 30+ year marriage as an example of success.
“He strives to find a love that fits the standard they have set for him, and he plans to keep those in mind when looking for a life partner,” his bio reads.
Will Shallcross find his soul mate? Check back each week for a breakdown of who stayed, who left, and what happened at the end of the episode.
In the second episode of ‘The Bachelor’, some relationships moved on fast. Christina Mandrell met with Zach’s entire family and heard about her relationship with her daughter, Blakely.
But others did not go ahead. Tahzjuan Hawkins, first introduced in Colton Underwood’s season of “The Bachelor,” played Zach after judging a competition of the show. He’s decided to stick with his crew instead of adding her to the mix.
Here’s who’s gone, of his crew.
Courting 30 women at once is no small feat, but Shallcross seemed to be up to the challenge in the season 27 premiere. Greer Blitzer received the first impression rose, putting her in the safe zone alongside Brianna Thorbourne who won a rose during the “After the Final Rose” ceremony. Things weren’t so bright for Madison Johnson: Zach told the North Dakota native that he couldn’t see a future with her.
Alas, he only had so many roses to hand out and the 26-year-old had to make some tough decisions.
Christina Mandrell, Charity Lawson, Bailey Brown, Jess Girod, Genevie Mayo, Davia Bunch, Aly Jacobs, Brooklyn Willie, Kaity Biggar, Anastasia Keramidas, Kylee Russell, Gabi Elnicki, Katherine Izzo, Mercedes Northup, Ariel Frenkel, Victoria Jameson, Kimberly Gutierrez and Cat Wong all got roses.
This means that the following women have been sent home.
