Christina is a 26-year-old content creator from Nashville, TN, who met Zach on The Bachelorette: After the Final Rose in September 2022 and then got the party started on The Bachelor's January 23 premiere.
Both of her entrances had something in common: liquor.
Christina also showed her playful and goofy side when she challenged Zach to a compatibility test on Night 1 of The Bachelor. Unfortunately, the pair quickly discovered they don't have a ton in common.
However, Zach gave Christina the first rose at the Rose Ceremony, and ABC says Christina is "ready for her perfect, fairytale love story."
Zach recently told BachelorNation.com that he wants to find a "really compassionate" woman who's "kind to everyone" and is not self-involved.
"How you treat people on a day-to-day basis is really important to me," Zach said, adding how he was "most nervous" about a bachelorette joining his season for the wrong reasons.
"I want to find someone who truly wants a future with me, so that's what scares me the most," he noted.
The Bachelor host Jesse Palmer recently teased that Zach's season is the "most emotional" one he's ever hosted and is more "about the love story" and "less about the drama."
So will Christina turn out to be the girl of Zach's dreams? It's possible Christina could go from a party bus to a limo headed to the Final Rose Ceremony.
But until viewers find out what really happens on Zach's The Bachelor season, let's get to know Christina a little better right now.

Christina was married once before
Christina began dating Blake Dennis in 2023, and they got married in May 2015.
The pair celebrated four years of being married in May 2019, and on Halloween that year, Christina posted Facebook photos with Blake in which they dressed up like skeletons and she captioned her post, "Death can't even do us part."
Christina often expresses how she's proud of Blakely's achievements on social media, and she doesn't stand for mommy-shaming.
"I know that there are so many hard working mommas out there who also don't deserve to be ridiculed for following their hearts or pursuing their dreams," Christina recently wrote on Instagram.
"Next.. yes.. I am a mom.. who also works.. and also hasn't given up on finding a partner. I absolutely love my job and although it requires me to travel, it also means that when I'm home I don't have to work much at all. I also have an absolute SQUAD when it comes to the people that have helped me raise her since day 1. That girl is loved SOOO big."
