By Elizabeth Kwiatkowski, 03/17/2023
Bachelor spoilers have spoiled what's going to happen on the rest of Zach Shallcross' The Bachelor season from hometown dates through Zach's Final Rose Ceremony -- including who received roses after hometowns, Zach's Final 2 bachelorettes, whom Zach picked and ended up with as his winner, and whether Zach is still engaged.
[Bachelor Spoilers Warning: This report contains The Bachelor spoilers that will spoil the rest of Zach's season for you, including who Zach ended up with and picked as his winner.]
And The Bachelor host Jesse Palmer teased during The Women Tell All special that a crazy episode is on its way -- an episode Zach also dubbed "overwhelming" and nerve-wracking to have to watch back.
"What transpires during overnights is so shocking, so explosive, and so emotional that it will have all of America talking... It is crazier and more emotional than you can even imagine," Jesse warned the studio audience and home viewers at The Women Tell All taping.
During a preview of The Bachelor's upcoming March 20 episode, Zach apparently finds himself in a very sticky situation with his Final 3 bachelorettes: Ariel Frenkel, a 28-year-old marketing executive from New York City, NY; Gabi Elnicki, a 25-year-old account executive from Pittsford, VT; and Kaity Biggar, a 27-year-old ER nurse from Austin, TX.
Zach reveals he's "in love," and Kaity says, "I have never felt this way in my entire life."
Zach apparently tells Gabi that he's "falling in love" with her, and Ariel expresses her love to Zach.
"How do I make a decision when my heart is being pulled in separate directions? Real feelings are at stake and everything can change in a day -- in a night," Zach notes.
Zach then tells Jesse his decision of "no sex" in the Fantasy Suites "of any kind."
But Zach faces temptation. Ariel calls him "delicious," and Kaity gushes, "It feels so right with him."
Zach then confirms, "Something really special happened," before telling Jesse that he let himself and the women down by "saying one thing and doing another."
Gabi cries, "It's not fair. Why am I putting myself through this pain?"

Zach insists there's no regret about "the beautiful moment" on his part but it feels "robbed" from him.
Kaity then complains she's "not happy" and just wants to go home.
"Coming into this, I wanted to do the right thing. I went with my head and not my heart, and that was the worst thing I could've done. I've caused pain and I've made mistakes, but true love is worth fighting for," Zach concludes.
The Bachelor spoilers reveal Zach's upcoming Rose Ceremony decisions and eliminations leading up to his winner, as recently reported by Reality Steve spoiler blogger Steve Carbone.
So what happens on the rest of Zach's The Bachelor season? Which bachelorette wins Zach's heart and does The Bachelor star get engaged? Keep reading for all the spoilers that are currently out there!
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 then visited the United Kingdom, Estonia and Hungry while The Bachelor star continued to narrow his pool of bachelorettes down to the Final 4 women he would visit for hometown dates.
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 has been billed as "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.
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.
There is reportedly photo evidence Zach picked Kaity as his winner
On February 28, Carbone reported the Instagram account @bachelorsherlock -- which is private -- posted a photo of Zach and Kaity Biggar at the Final Rose Ceremony.
Carbone claimed the photo showed Zach and Kaity together "clearly" after he picked her as his winner.
"So that pic posted by @bachelorsherlock just made doubters not have to wait until March 27th to believe my spoiler," Carbone wrote on March 1.
"This should be all the evidence they need. Don't know how they got the pic, nor does it matter. It's clear as day who Zach is with."
