Bachelor spoilers reveal what's going to happen on Zach Shallcross' season of The Bachelor -- including Zach's Rose Ceremony decisions, spoilers on who will emerge as a "villain," who finished as Zach's Final 4 bachelorettes, and which three women got Fantasy Suites!


[The Bachelor Spoilers Warning: This report contains spoilers for Zach Shallcross' 2023 season of The Bachelor and will spoil what happens for viewers.]

The Bachelor is heading into its third episode of Season 27 on Monday, February 6 at 8PM ET/PT on ABC.

The Bachelor just featured Tahzjuan Hawkins, who competed on Colton Underwood's The Bachelor season and appeared on two editions of Bachelor in Paradise, attempting to join Zach's cast of bachelorettes.


"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, turned Tahzjuan down, and he later eliminated Cat Wong, Kimberly Gutierrez, and Victoria Jameson at the second Rose Ceremony of the season.

Zach has been proving that he knows what he wants, and he's continuing to build upon his Night 1 connections with many of his bachelorettes.

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, for example, each received a group-date rose.

And Zach introduced Christina Mandrell, a 26-year-old content creator from Nashville, TN, to his family in Anaheim Hills, CA.

Zach said he was attracted to the fun and spicy Nashville native with a big heart, but she shocked him when she revealed she has a young daughter.

"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."

Zach told Christina that he needed more time to think about whether he's ready to become a stepfather, but in the meantime, he gave her a rose and requested her patience, which Christina said she respected.

While Christina rose above the pack on her one-on-one date with Zach, other bachelorettes were beginning to spiral downward.

Brianna Thorbourne, a 24-year-old entrepreneur from Jersey City, NJ -- who had received America's First Impression Rose -- was desperate for validation from Zach, and she almost threw Christina under the bus for making a "mean" comment on Night 1.

And Gabriella "Gabi" Elnicki, a 25-year-old account executive from Pittsford, VT, admitted that she felt "worthless" at one point, like she couldn't compete with the other women.


But both Brianna and Gabi managed to secure roses at Zach's second Rose Ceremony.

A total of 17 bachelorettes walked away with a rose at the end of Zach's first week of dates.

In addition to Katherine, Jess, Christina, Brianna and Gabi, Alyssa "Aly" Jacobs, a 26-year-old healthcare strategist from Atlanta, GA, also received a rose, along with Anastasia Keramidas, a 30-year-old content marketing manager from San Diego, CA; and Ariel Frenkel, a 28-year-old marketing executive from New York City, NY.

Bailey Brown, a 27-year-old executive recruiter from Nashville, TN, also accepted a rose from Zach, and she was 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; and Davia Bunch, a 25-year-old marketing manager from Charleston, SC.

The rest of the women who survived the Rose Ceremony were Genevie Mayo, a 26-year-old neonatal nurse from Baltimore City, MD; 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, even though he's against drama, isn't going to be able to escape it.

Zach, for example, appears to ask Kaity to sleep with him in a tent overnight, sparking jealousy and envy from the other women.

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 unfold on The Bachelor this season? Which women get eliminated on the show next and who made it 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.


Brianna quits after tiring of Christina's behavior

After the second Rose Ceremony, a group of women reportedly 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 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.

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 women to his Final 11 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.

However, Zach has openly confirmed he found love on the show

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

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

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

And Zach has repeatedly revealed in media interviews that he found love on the show and is "very happy" in life right now. Many The Bachelor viewers are therefore guessing that The Bachelor will end in a marriage proposal this season.

Zach recently 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."

And he also told Deadline that he "wouldn't trade" his experience on the show for anything, even though he went through "ups and downs" to get to the finish line.
