By Elizabeth Kwiatkowski, 02/06/2023
New Bachelor spoilers have emerged revealing who The Bachelor star Zach Shallcross allegedly picked as his Final 2 bachelorettes and who Zach picked as his winner and ended up with, as well as spoilers that reveal if The Bachelor star proposed and got engaged at the season's Final Rose Ceremony.
[The Bachelor Spoilers Warning: This report contains spoilers for Zach Shallcross' The Bachelor season and will spoil it for you, revealing who Zach picked as his Final 3 bachelorettes and who he ended up picking as his winner.]
The Bachelor has already aired two episodes, and Episode 3 is scheduled to air on Monday, February 6 at 8PM ET/PT on ABC.
The Bachelor's 27th season has already featured Zach making connections as well as some drama.
Tahzjuan thought Zach's ladies weren't bringing it, and she suggested they're all losers because only one woman can eventually marry Zach.
"These girls, they can't even compete. I'm the baddest b-tch in the room, obviously," Tahzjuan boasted in a confessional. "Zach is very cute and very easy on the eyes. If Zach said, 'Come join my season,' I would be like, 'Buckle up. Everyone get ready!'"
Zach, however, rejected Tahzjuan's request to continue on the show. He said his Night 1 connections were strong and he was more than confident his wife was among them.
Zach therefore explained it was nothing against Tahzjuan, but he just didn't feel it was the fair thing to do.
As for who's left, Katherine "Kat" Izzo, a 26-year-old registered nurse from Tampa, FL, and Jessica "Jess" Girod, a 23-year-old e-commerce coordinator from Winter Springs, FL, each received a group-date rose.
And Christina Mandrell, a 26-year-old content creator from Nashville, TN, earned herself a rose on the first one-on-one date of the season in Anaheim Hills, CA.
Zach admitted he's not sure if he's ready to be a stepfather to Christina's young daughter, but he asked for patience and some time to think about it.
"I love [that she's a mom] because I've always wanted kids, but what this does is it introduces a timeline real quick. That's my fear, and I don't know if I'm ready for it," Zach explained in a confessional, adding that he felt "overwhelmed" by the news.

"I don't know if anyone is ever really ready for it. I don't know how to react to this. I'm not perfect and I'm scared of it. I think sometimes you have to be selfish... I'm terrified and she caught my off-guard."
Brianna Thorbourne, a 24-year-old entrepreneur from Jersey City, NJ, and Gabriella "Gabi" Elnicki, a 25-year-old account executive from Pittsford, VT, also received roses, although they were beginning to spiral and become insecure on the latest episode.
The other bachelorettes who received roses at the end of the first week of dates were 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; and Bailey Brown, a 27-year-old executive recruiter from Nashville, TN.
Those ladies were joined by Brooklyn Willie, a 25-year-old rodeo racer from Stillwater, OK; Charity Lawson, a 26-year-old child and family therapist from Columbus, GA; Davia Bunch, a 25-year-old marketing manager from Charleston, SC; and Genevie Mayo, a 26-year-old neonatal nurse from Baltimore City, MD.
And the rest of the bachelorettes who will appear in the next episode are Greer Blitzer, a 24-year-old medical sales representative from Houston, TX; Kaitlyn "Kaity" Biggar, a 27-year-old ER nurse from Austin, TX; Kylee Russell, a 25-year-old postpartum nurse from Charlotte, NC; and Mercedes Northup, a 24-year-old nonprofit owner from Bloomfield, IA.
Based on previews of what's to come, Zach may find himself with an angry and jealous group of women. It appears Zach is going to ask Kaity to spend the night with him in a tent outdoors after their first one-on-one date.
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's going to happen on The Bachelor's 27th season? Which bachelorettes go home next and who did Zach pick as his The Bachelorwinner and end up with? 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.
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 himself 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.
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.
Gabriella "Gabi" Elnicki received the first one-on-one date and got a rose, but then there were no other group dates or one-on-one dates in London.
For nearly two months, Carbone didn't know what happened in London and why Zach missed out on his other two dates, other than something "kinda [changed] the landscape of the show."
"I was told this is something production had zero control over and they were scrambling to figure out what to do," Carbone wrote earlier this year, adding that the incident was unplanned and "had a significant impact on the production of the show."
However on February 6, Carbone updated his spoilers and revealed that Zach had tested positive for coronavirus while in London. After his date with Gabi, the rest of Zach's dates were canceled as a result.
Carbone isn't sure whether any of the women caught COVID-19 as well.
Zach did his Rose Ceremony in London over Zoom
Because Zach contracted COVID-19, he had to lead the fifth Rose Ceremony of the season via Zoom.
Carbone believes Zach ousted two bachelorettes during the Rose Ceremony in London.
Mercedes Northup, who reportedly got food poisoning, was one of the two women 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 in Estonia.
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, and then Zach enjoyed a group date.
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.
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.
