New Bachelor spoilers have emerged about Zach Shallcross' The Bachelor season, revealing a significant event that changed the course of Zach's journey to find love on Season 27 and more!


[The Bachelor Spoilers Warning: This report contains spoilers for Zach's The Bachelor season and will spoil what happens for you].

Zach's The Bachelor season promises to be emotional, warm, and real based on comments The Bachelor host Jesse Palmer has recently made.

Zach's season premieres Monday, January 23 at 8PM ET/PT on ABC with 30 bachelorettes hoping to date the 26-year-old tech executive from Anaheim Hills, CA.

The women who will be competing for Zach range in age from 23 to 30, and they include a rodeo racer, a dancer, four nurses and a nursing student, a business owner, a financial advisor, and a nanny from Austria.

Jesse recently said it was easy for the women to open up to Zach and feel comfortable on the show because he immediately showed his "big heart" and how he "genuinely cares about people's feelings."

"One of the things I think Zach understood going into this season is that he had to be intentional with his actions," Jesse said. "Because a lot of these women on Night 1, they're so nervous... You're not sure how to behave and be yourself."

Jesse shared how Zach created a "safe space" for the ladies and motivated them to be their "most authentic selves" around him.

Zach told that he's looking for a kind and compassionate woman.

"I think a lot of people can be really self-involved. So how you treat people on a day-to-day basis is really important to me," Zach said, adding how he was "most nervous" to have a woman be on the show for the wrong reasons.

Zach's lineup of beautiful bachelorettes include Alyssa "Aly" Jacobs, a 26-year-old healthcare strategist from Atlanta, GA; Anastasia Keramidas, a 30-year-old content marketing manager from San Diego, CA; Ariel Frenkel, a 28-year-old marketing executive from New York City, NY; Bailey Brown, a 27-year-old executive recruiter from Nashville, TN; Rebecca, "Becca," a 25-year-old nursing student from Burbank, CA; and Brianna Thorbourne, a 24-year-old entrepreneur from Jersey City, NJ.

The Bachelor cast is also comprised of Brooklyn Willie, a 25-year-old rodeo racer from Stillwater, OK; Cara Ammon, a 27-year-old corporate recruiter from Pittsburgh, PA; Cat Wong, a 26-year-old dancer from New York, NY; Charity Lawson, a 26-year-old child and family therapist from Columbus, GA; Christina Mandrell, a 26-year-old content creator from Nashville, TN; Davia Bunch, a 25-year-old marketing manager from Charleston, SC; and Gabriella "Gabi" Elnicki, a 25-year-old account executive from Pittsford, VT.

Among the competition will also be Genevie Mayo, a 26-year-old neonatal nurse from Baltimore City, MD; Greer Blitzer, a 24-year-old medical sales representative from Houston, TX; Holland Parsons, a 24-year-old insurance marketer from Boca Raton, FL; Jessica "Jess" Girod, a 23-year-old e-commerce coordinator from Winter Springs, FL; Kaitlyn "Kaity" Biggar, a 27-year-old ER nurse from Austin, TX; and Katherine "Kat" Izzo, a 26-year-old registered nurse from Tampa, FL.

Kimberly Gutierrez, a 30-year-old hospitality manager from Los Angeles, CA, will also be competing for Zach along with Kylee Russell, a 25-year-old postpartum nurse from Charlotte, NC; Chandralekha "Lekha" Ravi, a 29-year-old financial advisor from Miami, FL; Madison "Madi" Johnson, a 26-year-old business owner from Fargo, ND; and Mercedes Northup, a 24-year-old nonprofit owner from Bloomfield, IA.

Two Olivias -- Olivia Lewis, a 24-year-old patient care technician from Rochester, NY, and Olivia Miller, a 25-year-old stylist from Cincinnati, OH -- will also be looking for love with Zach.

And the remaining women on The Bachelor's 27th season are Sonia Sharma, a 29-year-old project manager from Long Island, NY; Vanessa Dinh, a 23-year-old restaurant marketer from Baton Rouge, LA; Victoria Jameson, a 30-year-old makeup artist from Fort Worth, TX; and Viktoria Eichner, a 29-year-old nanny from Vienna, Austria.

Were any of these women able to capture Zach's heart and final rose? Did Zach find the true love he began searching for on Rachel Recchia and Gabby Windey's The Bachelorette season?

The Bachelor spoilers reveal Zach's date details, Rose Ceremony decisions, storylines, and eliminations leading up to his Final 3 bachelorettes, as recently reported by Reality Steve spoiler blogger Steve Carbone.

"I'm sure I'll be hearing more things that happened this season," Carbone wrote in his blog. "There's a couple things I've heard that I'm kinda shaking my head at that I need more details on before reporting it."

So what are the new spoilers that will have Bachelor Nation talking, and what happens on The Bachelor season? Who goes home early and who are Zach's Final 3 bachelorettes? Keep reading for all the season details 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.

Filming wrapped in late November with Zach's Final Rose Ceremony in Thailand, but the show is premiering three weeks later than the "first Monday of January" premiere date that The Bachelor has historically begun airing on ABC.

Zach's The Bachelor season will be "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 his season 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.

Brianna got a First Impression Rose from America when Zach met some of his women early on The Bachelorette finale

Before The Bachelor began filming in September, Zach was introduced to five women on The Bachelorette: After the Final Rose for Season 19 starring Gabby Windey and Rachel Recchia.

Live onstage and in front of a studio audience, Zach met Bailey Brown, Brianna Thorbourne, Brooklyn Willie, Cat Wong, and Christina Mandrell.

Brianna snapped a Polaroid selfie with Zach and flirtatiously slipped it into his pocket.

America was able to vote for their favorite woman or introduction, and so "America's First Impression Rose" was given to Brianna that night. The rose ensured Brianna's safety at the season's first Rose Ceremony.

Zach sent 10 bachelorettes home on Night 1 when The Bachelor season began filming a week later

Madison "Madi" Johnson was the first woman to pull Zach aside for a conversation on Night 1, and she reportedly kept interrupting the Bachelor's conversations with other women throughout the evening.

Madi's aggressive approach apparently got her sent home before the Rose Ceremony.

Zach told Madi that he didn't see a connection with her.

"[Madi] might've even asked [Zach] during one of the many times she saw him, if he didn't see it with her to send her home. So he did," Carbone reported.

Some of Madi's friends, however, have told Carbone that Madi eliminated herself because she wasn't feeling it with Zach.

Once it became time for the Rose Ceremony on Night 1, Chandralekha "Lekha" Ravi stopped Zach as he was calling out women's names to tell him that she never got a chance to speak with him.

Lekha allegedly claimed producers had reassured her that she would get to talk to Zach before the Rose Ceremony -- but the meeting never took place.

Carbone doesn't think this scene will air due to the fact Lekha had called out production.

At the first Rose Ceremony of the season, Zach narrowed down his remaining 29 bachelorettes to 20 women.

The bachelorettes who got eliminated were Cara Ammon, Holland Parsons, Lekha, Olivia Lewis, Olivia Miller, Rebecca, Sonia Sharma, Vanessa Dinh, and Viktoria Eichner.

This marked the first The Bachelor season where 10 women got sent home on the first night. All of the remaining women therefore went on receive date in the first couple weeks of filming.


Christina gets drunk on Night 1, but still gets the season's first 1-on-1 date from Zach!

Christina Mandrell arrived on Night 1 in a party bus, which seemed to foreshadow her behavior in subsequent weeks.

In a preview of The Bachelor season, a bachelorette is shown sleeping on the stairs of the mansion because she had too much to drink. That woman was Christina.

Christina received the first one-on-one date of the season -- and a rose -- despite her antics, but her tendency to drink too much allegedly continued.

The women therefore targeted Christina as a problem early on.

Cat, Kimberly and Victoria get cut at The Bachelor season's second Rose Ceremony

The following women were selected for a group date with Zach during the first round of dates: Bailey Brown, Brianna Thorbourne, Brooklyn Willie, Cat Wong, Davia Bunch, Genevie Mayo, Katherine "Kat" Izzo, Kylee Russell, and Mercedes Northup.

The Bachelor alums Victoria Fuller, Courtney Robertson, and Tahzjuan Hawkins served as judges of the group date, which was hosted by Latto, the rapper who sings "Big Energy."

Brianna was awarded the "winner" for having the "big bitch energy" by Latto.

The second group date during Week 1 featured Alyssa "Aly" Jacobs, Ariel Frenkel, Anastasia Keramidas, Charity Lawson, Gabriella "Gabi" Elnicki, Greer Blitzer, Kaitlyn "Kaity" Biggar, Jessica "Jess" Girod, Kimberly Gutierrez, and Victoria Jameson.

The audience cheered for Zach to kiss Aly during the date but he refused, probably because he didn't want to upset the other women.

At the second Rose Ceremony of the season, Zach narrowed down his pool of bachelorettes from 20 to 17 women.

Zach eliminated Cat, Kimberly, and Victoria J. during the Rose Ceremony.

Brianna quits after tiring of Christina's mean-girl behavior

After the second Rose Ceremony, a group of women participated in a tackle-football game at Moorpark College announced by Jesse Palmer and Hannah Storm.

The Blue Team was comprised of Ariel Frenkel, Bailey Brown, Brooklyn Willie, Charity Lawson, Christina Mandrell, Katherine "Kat" Izzo, and Kylee Russell.

The Yellow Team was made up of Anastasia Keramidas, Brianna Thorbourne, Davia Bunch, Gabriella "Gabi" Elnicki, Genevie Mayo, Greer Blitzer, Jessica "Jess" Girod, and Mercedes Northup.

According to Carbone, Brianna self-eliminated before the Rose Ceremony because she felt bullied.

Christina was allegedly the ring leader of the behavior that led to Brianna quitting.

"Christina was the one who I guess was sort of the instigator, telling Brianna that the First Impression Rose she got was from America (at the live ATFR), was not from Zach," Carbone reported in his blog.

"It all escalated at the pool party and this is when Brianna ends up quitting."

Zach then tires of Christina and sends her home at the third Rose Ceremony

Prior to the third Rose Ceremony, Zach enjoyed a one-on-one date with Kaitlyn "Kaity" Biggar, part of which took place at the Museum of Natural History. Kaity received a rose from Zach by the end of the date.

Zach also took Alyssa "Aly" Jacobs on a solo date and the pair went skydiving into the Babcock Winery & Vineyards in Santa Barbara, CA. Aly also earned herself a rose on the date.

Zach canceled the cocktail party preceding the third Rose Ceremony in favor of a pool party earlier in the day.

In addition to Brianna Thorbourne quitting, Zach sent Bailey Brown home before the Rose Ceremony because they didn't have a connection.

Zach then ousted one more bachelorette at the third Rose Ceremony of the season: Christina Mandrell.

Christina's elimination one week after getting a rose allegedly had to do with her alleged "erratic" behavior at the pool party, where she may have been drinking excessively.

Christina's elimination left Zach with fourteen bachelorettes still in the running for his final rose.

Another bachelorette quits in the Bahamas before Zach narrows the group to his final eleven bachelorettes

According to Carbone, Zach and his fourteen remaining bachelorettes then left the Los Angeles area and flew to the Bahamas for The Bachelor season's third round of dates.

Prior to Rose Ceremony No. 4, Katherine "Kat" Izzo accompanies Zach on a one-on-one date.

Zach also enjoyed a group date with Alyssa "Aly" Jacobs, Ariel Frenkel, Anastasia Keramidas, Charity Lawson, Davia Bunch, Gabriella "Gabi" Elnicki, Genevie Mayo, Greer Blitzer, Jessica "Jess" Girod, Kaitlyn "Kaity" Biggar, Kylee Russell, and Mercedes Northup.

The other bachelorette who received a one-on-one date with Zach that week in the Bahamas was Brooklyn Willie.

Carbone heard that Anastasia self-eliminated before the Rose Ceremony due to a close friend suddenly passing away.

At the Rose Ceremony, Zach went from 14 bachelorettes to only 11 women by denying roses to Davia and Genevie.

Brooklyn emerges as The Bachelor season's new "villain" after Christina's exit

After Christina Mandrell was sent packing, Brooklyn Willie reportedly emerged as The Bachelor season's new "villain."

Carbone heard that Brooklyn was a pot-stirrer and happened to be in the middle of a lot of the drama.

"But from all I've been told, [Brooklyn] just liked to instigate things that seemingly would keep her on TV," Carbone reported in his blog.

Something "unplanned" that "changes the landscape" of "the rest of the season" happens in London

After their time in the Bahamas, Zach and his 11 remaining The Bachelor bachelorettes reportedly flew to London, England for their fourth round of dates. However, Carbone is admittedly a little confused about what went down in London.

Gabriella "Gabi" Elnicki received the first one-on-one date and got a rose, but then something happened that basically ended all of the other dates in London. There was no group date or second one-on-one date.

"There is something that happens in London that kinda changes the landscape of the show," Carbone reported in his blog.

"Problem is, I don't know any details behind it. If I did, I'd tell you. All I can pass on is what I was told. I was told this is something production had zero control over and they were scrambling to figure out what to do."

Carbone heard that what went down wasn't bad, but it was unplanned and "had a significant impact on the production of the show."

Gabi was therefore the only bachelorette who got to go on a date with Zach out of the eleven women that were left in London at that point.

At the fifth Rose Ceremony of the season, Carbone believes Zach ousted two women.

Mercedes Northup, who got food poisoning, was one of them and got eliminated in London.

Carbone knows that eleven women went to London and only seven women remained after two Rose Ceremonies -- one in London and one at their next destination.

Alyssa "Aly" Jacobs and Kylee Russell also were eliminated at some point, but Carbone isn't sure if they were sent packing in London or their next stop.

Ariel and Charity get one-on-one dates in Estonia

Tallinn, Estonia is where Zach and his remaining bachelorettes reportedly traveled to after London.

Charity Lawson received the first one-on-one date, Zach enjoyed a group date, and then Ariel Frenkel accompanied the Bachelor on the second solo date of the week.

At the sixth Rose Ceremony in Estonia, Carbone believes Zach went from nine bachelorettes to only seven women.

Jessica "Jess" Girod was definitely eliminated in Estonia, according to Carbone.

However, as previously mentioned, Carbone is unsure whether Alyssa "Aly" Jacobs and Kylee Russell were sent home while Zach and his bachelorettes were in London or Estonia.

"Whatever it is that happens in London and sets the tone for the rest of the season, that's apparently the reason why [I'm] trying to figure out who gets sent home in Estonia," Carbone explained.

The spoiler blogger added, "It's nothing like someone leaves and returns. I was told it WASN'T that but it's something the show hasn't dealt with before and didn't see coming."

Brooklyn gets sent home on a one-on-one date in Hungary

Zach went on two one-on-one dates in Budapest, Hungary with Kaitlyn "Kaity" Biggar and Brooklyn Willie.

However, Zach reportedly denied Brooklyn a rose on their solo date.

Carbone isn't sure whether there was a formal Rose Ceremony in Hungary. It's possible that Zach just determined his Final 4 bachelorettes by handing out roses on his dates instead.

The other two women ousted by Zach in Hungary were Katherine "Kat" Izzo and Greer Blitzer.

Zach's Final 4 bachelorettes are Ariel, Charity, Gabi and Kaity

At the seventh Rose Ceremony, which took place in Hungary, Zach went from seven bachelorettes to only four women.

Zach's Final 4 bachelorettes were Ariel Frenkel, Charity Lawson, Gabriella "Gabi" Elnicki, and Kaitlyn "Kaity" Biggar.

Gabi was caught reading Game of Roses' How to Win the Bachelor book during her stay at the mansion, so it's likely Gabi's intentions were questioned at some point in the process.

Ariel, Gabi and Kaity are Zach's Final 3 bachelorettes

Zach picked his Final 3 bachelorettes after the women's round of hometown dates.

Zach visited Gabriella "Gabi" Elnicki in Vermont on October 31 and then Ariel Frenkel in New York on November 2.

Zach proceeded to fly to Columbus, GA, to meet Charity Lawson's family on November 4, followed by Kaitlyn "Kaity" Biggar's hometown date in Austin, TX, on November 6.

At the eighth Rose Ceremony of the season, Zach eliminated Charity.

Zach's Final 3 bachelorettes as a result were Ariel, Gabi and Kaity.

Reality Steve isn't sure who Zach's Final 2 and winner are yet

After completing his round of hometown dates, Zach enjoyed his overnight Fantasy Suite dates in Krabi, Thailand.

It's unclear whether he went into a Fantasy Suite with Ariel Frenkel, Gabriella "Gabi" Elnicki, or Kaitlyn "Kaity" Biggar.

Carbone has yet to discover Zach's Final 2 women as well as the winner of The Bachelor's 27th season.

But Jesse Palmer told Us Weekly in November that he is "10,000 percent" certain Zach will have a happy ending.

"I can't wait for people to see his journey," Jesse teased.
