Zach asked Charity to accompany him on a one-on-one date in London, but The Bachelor star tested positive for COVID-19 and had to miss out on their date.
Charity was devastated about the date and feared she'd get "skipped over" and forgotten about, but ABC has already teased in a preview that Charity will, in fact, receive her solo date with Zach in another city.
Despite only being able to virtually chat with Zach in London for a few minutes, she still received a rose during the franchise's first-ever virtual Rose Ceremony.
"I could see Zach as my husband. I have the feels, and so I remain hopeful," Charity told the cameras.
Zach recently told BachelorNation.com that he wants to find a "really compassionate" woman who's "kind to everyone," and Charity appears to fit that description.
She also seems to be on the show for the right reasons, which was also very important to Zach.
The Bachelor host Jesse Palmer recently teased that Zach's season is "a throwback" and will be more "about the love story" and "less about the drama." So will Charity be the last woman standing in Zach's epic love story?
Until we can watch Charity and Zach's relationship progress on The Bachelor, let's get to know this bachelorette better and learn some information about her right now.

ABC says Charity has a smile that lights up a room
In addition to having a great career, Charity also has "a sweet personality to match" and she's "the total package," according to ABC.
"The Georgia beauty takes her name as a call to love and care for people and has built her life on that purpose," shared the network.
Charity therefore hopes her future husband will be honest, loyal and have similar morals. She predicted that she and Zach would be a perfect match on paper.
Charity specializes in mental health therapy
Charity has worked at Tri-County Child Advocacy Center since July 2021, where she started out as an intern.
Charity's populations of interest include trauma, child developmental disorders, anxiety, veterans, couples, and families.
Charity's goal is to leave an impact on someone's life by ensuring and fulfilling positive change for humanity, while also connecting and promoting a diverse environment that creates long-lasting interpersonal relationships.
Charity appeared to make the most of her college experience
Charity received her Bachelors of Science degree in Rehabilitation and Disability at Auburn University in 2018.
While in school, she was a member of the Physical Therapy/Occupational Therapy Club, Sigma Kappa sorority, the Auburn University Modeling Board, and the Auburn Alumni Association.
She was also a tutor, an intern at the Auburn University Braveheart Center for Place and Purpose, and a volunteer at the campus kitchen and for the Eagles Program.
The Bachelor bachelorette went on to earn her Master's Degree
Charity graduated with her Master's degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Auburn University in 2022.
"The past 6 years at Auburn, has been an experience of a lifetime, one that I don't take for granted. I've been challenged, pushed and molded into the woman I am today. Looking back on my journey, I've met the most incredible people, professors, created the BEST memories, but most importantly, unconsciously, I walked right into my calling," Charity wrote on Instagram in May 2022.
"The joy that comes with obtaining a degree the second time around is so much sweeter when you gain confirmation that it is exactly one of the things God has called you to do. The last two years has challenged me every single day in the areas of personal growth, but also in my professional identity as a therapist."
Charity added, "Auburn truly owes me nothing. I can't believe this is the final page of this chapter, but super excited for what's to come. God has been so incredibly faithful in this season. Auburn forever will be the greatest little village and family...War Eagle!"
Charity is a religious bachelorette driven by her faith
Charity is extremely passionate about helping people live their best lives and loving people the way Jesus loved.
Charity celebrated passing her boards and becoming a counselor over a piece of peanut butter pie in May 2022.
"This field of work is so beautiful, and I'm passionate about always advocating for mental health in today's society," Charity shared on Instagram last year.
"One of the most powerful tools we as humans have is our minds, it's important we treat it as such, and take care of it. I know for certain my growth will forever be evolving. I would not have made it without my outstanding support system: my parents, family, friends and cohort/coworkers -- thank you is simply not enough."
Becca, who starred on The Bachelorette's fourteenth season, and Michelle, who starred on Season 18 of the series, have named Charity their top pick from Zach's The Bachelor season to star on The Bachelorette's upcoming 20th edition.
"I'm just going to say it: I hope you're not with Zach and I hope you're Bachelorette! I'm saying it right now!" Becca said on the "Bachelor Happy Hour" podcast in February.
Michelle agreed and shouted, "Damn right!"
"Oh my gosh, we need a Bachelorette [like you]," Michelle continued.
"You have it all. You're so well-rounded, you're so sweet, you're such a hard worker, you're genuine, and I love that you just have perspective... I absolutely love it."
Michelle added how Charity is "self-aware" and she'd love to see another woman of color star on the show.
"Campaign! [I'm] starting it now. We are campaigning!" Michelle exclaimed.
