By Elizabeth Kwiatkowski, 02/10/2023
New Bachelor spoilers have surfaced revealing The Bachelor star Zach Shallcross' Final 2 bachelorettes, who ended up as his final pick, and spoilers on whether Season 27 ended with Zach and his winner getting engaged at the Final Rose Ceremony.
[The Bachelor Spoilers Warning: This report contains spoilers for The Bachelor and will spoil what happens on Zach Shallcross' season, including who Zach picked as his Final 2 bachelorettes and he ended up as his winner.]
The Bachelor is heading into its fourth episode on Monday, February 13 at 8PM ET/PT on ABC.
So far, Zach has developed "amazing connections" with some of his bachelorettes, including Kaity Biggar, a 27-year-old ER nurse from Austin, TX, who got to spend the night with Zach in a museum of natural history.
"I could never think in a million years I'd be sitting right here in front of you and feeling the way that I do," Kaity told Zach, calling him "a dream come true" and her potential best friend for life.
And Aly Jacobs, a 26-year-old healthcare strategist from Atlanta, GA, opened up to Zach about how she needs to put herself first in a relationship going forward and attempt to be her true self, not a controlled and perfect version of herself.
Zach also gave Charity Lawson, a 26-year-old child and family therapist from Columbus, GA, a group-date rose.
But Zach said goodbye to three women because he couldn't envision any of them becoming his future wife.
Brianna Thorbourne self-eliminated from the show due to her lack of a physical and romantic connection with The Bachelor star. She also said the dating environment had become "toxic" and full of insecurities due to Christina Mandrell's alleged intimidation and boastful nature.
Zach therefore had the "biggest internal battle" of his life when choosing to eliminate Christina, who had the first one-on-one date of the season and met his beloved family and dogs.
And Bailey Brown also got sent packing because her romance with Zach was "regressing" and felt "weird" to her, which Zach ultimately agreed with. Instead of validating his feelings for Bailey, Zach admitted they were missing a spark and something was "off" between them.
Next week on The Bachelor, Zach and his 14 remaining bachelorettes will be shown traveling to The Bahamas.
"This is when deep feelings start to rise," Zach says in a preview for Episode 4. "I am feeling really hopeful."

But then one bachelorette cries and says she wants to go home, and another woman is accused of being on the show for fame and social-media followers and attention.
"I don't have a good feeling about this," laments Kylee Russell, a 25-year-old postpartum nurse from Charlotte, NC.
Zach then appears to ask Kylee, "Are you really here for me?"
In addition to Aly, Charity, Kaity and Kylee, the following bachelorettes are still in the running for Zach's heart: 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 Brooklyn Willie, a 25-year-old rodeo racer from Stillwater, OK.
Davia Bunch, a 25-year-old marketing manager from Charleston, SC, also received a rose at the previous Rose Ceremony, and she was joined by Genevie Mayo, a 26-year-old neonatal nurse from Baltimore City, MD; Gabi Elnicki, a 25-year-old account executive from Pittsford, VT; and Greer Blitzer, a 24-year-old medical sales representative from Houston, TX.
And the rest of Zach's Episode 4 bachelorettes are Kat Izzo, a 26-year-old registered nurse from Tampa, FL; Jess Girod, a 23-year-old e-commerce coordinator from Winter Springs, FL; 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.
"I'm sure I'll be hearing more things that happened this season," Carbone wrote in his blog earlier this year. "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 happens onThe Bachelor's 27th season? Which bachelorettes go home next and who did Zach pick as his The Bachelor winner 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.
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.
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.
