[Bachelor Spoilers Warning: This report contains The Bachelor spoilers that reveal who Zach Shallcross picked as his Final 2 bachelorettes and ended up with as his winner and if he's engaged.]
The Bachelor is heading into its sixth episode Monday, February 27 at 8PM ET/PT on ABC, and Zach only has nine women remaining on his journey to find his future wife.
The women who will appear on the next episode include Aly Jacobs, a 26-year-old healthcare strategist from Atlanta, GA; Ariel Frenkel, a 28-year-old marketing executive from New York City, NY; Brooklyn Willie, a 25-year-old rodeo racer from Stillwater, OK; and Charity Lawson, a 26-year-old child and family therapist from Columbus, GA.
Gabi Elnicki, a 25-year-old account executive from Pittsford, VT, is also still in the running for Zach's heart, along with Greer Blitzer, a 24-year-old medical sales representative from Houston, TX; Jess Girod, a 23-year-old e-commerce coordinator from Winter Springs, FL; Kaity Biggar, a 27-year-old ER nurse from Austin, TX; and Kat Izzo, a 26-year-old registered nurse from Tampa, FL.
London turned out to be a tough week for Zach, who tested positive for coronavirus following his one-on-one date with Gabi.
Zach therefore had to cancel the group date and a solo date with Charity.
He also ended up hosting the franchise's first-ever virtual cocktail party and virtual Rose Ceremony.
Zach, however, recovered from coronavirus and continued his quest to find the love of his life.
Where did the cast go next on their international travels, and whom did Zach send home during the next round of dates?
Based on a preview of what's to come on The Bachelor this season, Zach will enjoy a horseback riding one-on-one date, a horse-drawn carriage ride with Charity, and a nudist-sauna experience with Ariel.
"I can say I am falling for you," Charity tells Zach on her long-anticipated solo date. "You have this special way of making me feel really seen and chosen. I feel like I'm the only girl in this world right now."
And Zach begins to fall in love. He is shown telling Kaity, "My heart flutters when I think of you."

And Brooklyn cries to Zach, "You mean the world to me," before she admits she's "ready to take that next step" with him.
There also appears to be drama on the way, mainly around Kat and Brooklyn, as well as a lot of tears, with some of the women speaking out about how they're afraid to lose the man of their dreams.
At the end of the process, however, Zach "confidently" says his wife is on the show.
"It's been a heartbreaking journey but I've found my love. I've caused pain and I've made mistakes, and my mind and my heart are being pulled in separate directions," Zach shares.
"But standing here with the ring, I just hope that it's all worth it," he concludes.
The Bachelor spoilers reveal Zach's date details, Rose Ceremony decisions, upcoming storylines, and eliminations leading up to Zach's winner, as recently reported by Reality Steve spoiler blogger Steve Carbone.
So what happens on the rest of Zach's The Bachelor season? Which bachelorettes make it all the way to the Final Rose Ceremony and who wins? Keep reading for all the spoilers that are currently out there!
Zach's The Bachelor season was filmed last fall and included stops around Europe
Zach's The Bachelor season began filming in late September 2022 at the famous Bachelor mansion in California.
Zach and some of his lucky bachelorettes visited the United Kingdom, Estonia and Hungry throughout his journey to find love.
The Bachelor season followed the show's usual production schedule and finished filming in late November with Zach's Final Rose Ceremony, but premiered three weeks later than the "first Monday of January" premiere date that The Bachelor historically begins airing on ABC.
Zach's The Bachelor season is "a bit of a throwback" and "a beautiful story"
Jesse Palmer told E! News in November that Zach's season "is a bit of a throwback."
"This season is a lot more about the romance and the love, and maybe a little bit less about the drama," explained Jesse, who starred on Season 5 of The Bachelor back in 2004.
Jesse also said on the "Bachelor Happy Hour" podcast in early January that Zach "really shines" throughout his season.
"I really think he comes through," Jesse teased. "He has a beautiful story, and I'm really excited for people to see it."
Zach "cries a lot" during The Bachelor and it's "the most emotional show"
"This is easily the most emotional show that I've hosted in the franchise to date," Jesse told E! News in November.
Jesse also told Us Weekly that The Bachelor bachelorettes were "really into Zach."
Jesse shared late last year, "Zach's so emotionally mature and he's a guy that's not afraid to wear his emotion on his sleeve. He's very, very intentional. This is easily the most emotional show that I've hosted in the franchise."
Jesse said Zach's season is "emotionally charged" because the bachelorettes really want to end up with Zach.
"It's a [totally] different vibe than I've [ever] had hosting any of the other shows," the host noted.
Carbone was initially unsure if Alyssa "Aly" Jacobs was sent home while Zach and his bachelorettes were in London or Estonia, however given The Bachelor season's London stop has now aired on ABC, he now knows Aly was sent home in Estonia.

And not only that, but Zach proposed marriage to Kaity and the pair got engaged!
Although it's been reported on social media that Gabi was the bachelorette who won Zach's heart, Carbone said he trusts his sources.
"I'll bet on myself... I don't reveal my sources or how I get any info. But with another spoiler out there for 2 months that's opposite of mine, now we can officially say one of us is dead wrong. Gonna make for a great finale night I tell ya," Carbone wrote.
Carbone apparently received "some info this past weekend" about Zach's winner that he felt comfortable running with.
Zach recently told Deadline that he "wouldn't trade" his experience on the show for anything, even though he had to endure some "ups and downs" to get to the finish line.
