Bachelor spoilers give away what happens on the rest of Zach Shallcross' The Bachelor season -- including the big and unexpected twist coming up in London -- as well as spoilers on Zach's Final 2 bachelorettes and who ends up with The Bachelor star as his winner and final pick.


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

The Bachelor's fifth episode is going to air on Monday, February 20 at 8PM ET/PT on ABC.

Zach and his remaining 11 bachelorettes will be shown traveling to London for the next week of dates.

Zach will enjoy a one-on-one date with Gabi Elnicki, a 25-year-old account executive from Pittsford, VT, in which they'll play with a group of Corgi dogs.

"Nothing is going to stop us from having such an amazing week," Zach teases in a preview for the next episode.

But then The Bachelor host Jesse Palmer gives the group of women some "unfortunate" and "really bad news."

The women are shown crying, saying, "I was not expecting that," and "I don't know where we go from here."

Zach also cries in an apparent Zoom chat how his week was "robbed" from him.

"The million-dollar question now is, 'What are we going to do?'" Jesse asks Zach.

It appears London is going to be a tough and emotional week, especially since Zach has begun to develop strong connections with many of his bachelorettes.

On the latest episode of The Bachelor, Zach seemed smitten with Kat Izzo, a 26-year-old registered nurse from Tampa, FL, during their one-on-one date in The Bahamas.

And Zach also gained a new appreciation for Brooklyn Willie, a 25-year-old rodeo racer from Stillwater, OK, who opened up about having been emotionally and physically abused in a past relationship that she ultimately escaped from.

And The Bachelor star gave the group-date rose in The Bahamas to Ariel Frenkel, a 28-year-old marketing executive from New York City, NY.

The bachelor chose to send home Anastasia Keramidas, who was accused of going on the show to gain Instagram followers, during a cocktail party, and then he eliminated Davia Bunch and Genevie Mayo during the Rose Ceremony.

In addition to Gabi, Kat, Brooklyn, and Ariel, other bachelorettes still in the running for Zach's heart include Aly Jacobs, a 26-year-old healthcare strategist from Atlanta, GA; Charity Lawson, a 26-year-old child and family therapist from Columbus, GA; and 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, will also appear in the next episode, along with 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.

The Bachelor spoilers reveal Zach's date details, Rose Ceremony decisions, 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 The Bachelor season? What happens in London and who goes home next? And which bachelorette makes it all the way to the end? 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.


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 changed "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.

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.

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.

Zach's Final 2 bachelorettes are Gabi and Kaity 

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 -- or all of them.

In Carbone's new February 6 blog posting, he revealed that Ariel was eliminated at the Rose Ceremony following Zach's Fantasy Suite dates.

Zach's Final 2 bachelorettes are therefore Kaity and Gabi.

Zach got engaged to Kaity at his final Rose Ceremony

Jesse Palmer told Us Weekly in November that he was "10,000 percent" certain Zach will have a happy ending and that he couldn't wait for people to see the Bachelor's journey.

And Zach has repeatedly revealed in media interviews that he found love on the show and is "very happy" in life right now.

Zach also told Variety that "a lot happens" on his "emotional roller-coaster" of a season -- but it's all a "beautiful part of how everything works out."

According to Carbone's February 6 blog, Zach dumped Gabriella "Gabi" Elnicki in second place and chose Kaitlyn "Kaity" Biggar as his winner!

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.
