Kaity made The Bachelor history by spending the night with Zach during her first one-on-one date of the season. The pair had slept inside a tent at a natural-history museum, and Kaity was shown telling Zach that they should push their twin beds together.
Zach said he and Kaity always managed to have fun together, and he appreciated her COVID-19 care package in London.
During Zach and Kaity's second one-on-one date in Budapest Hungary, Zach gushed that he still got "butterflies" with the bachelorette and their connection felt "real."
"I'm very much attached, it feels like a magnetic is pulling us together, and I love that," Zach shared.
Zach liked how Kaity carried herself with kindness and treated other people with respect, and Kaity discovered that Zach had checked off all her boxes and seemed to be "the perfect man."
"I feel like I have finally found a man who is going to give me that unconditional love, the love I deserve," Kaity expressed to the cameras.
After introducing Zach to her family, Kaity told The Bachelor star that she was "falling in love" with him. Kaity said her heart felt safe with Zach, and she thanked him for such a great day.
"He is the man I want, who I've literally dreamed of," Kaity told the cameras. "I'm opening my heart for it to potentially get shattered again, but I would take the risk any day if it meant Zach being my husband at the end of this."
Until The Bachelor fans find out if Kaity receives one of Zach's Final 2 roses, let's get to know Kaity a little better.
Kaity is looking for her forever "Prince Charming"
Kaity told ABC, "I truly hope to find love" on The Bachelor, adding, "I have so much love to give to the right man."
Kaity can't wait to have children and start a family. She said if her partner doesn't want kids, then that's a dealbreaker for her.
Kaity has been searching for a man who will provide her with stability and security. She hopes her future husband will simply be there for her and stay with her.
Kaity's passions and hobbies include going to amusement parks
Kaity grew up figure skating and she absolutely loves going on roller coasters.
Kaity enjoys swimming but hates that sharks may be swimming underneath her.
And as far as dining in Austin goes, her favorite spots are Aba, Launderette, Red Ash, and Terry Black's BBQ, according to the AXIOS Austin website.
Kaity's ex-boyfriend allegedly cheated on her
Kaity's last serious relationship before appearing onThe Bachelor lasted seven years off and on, and she called it "pure toxicity." Kaity said the man had cheated on her and so she can get jealous pretty easily.
"It took a little bit of time for me to heal from that, and I feel like this is the best time in my life to start dating again and find somebody who wants to love me unconditionally," Kaity explained.
"[Zach] seems like the perfect Bachelor; he has a very open heart... and I want a husband through this."
Kaity has revealed what really happened during her overnight with Zach
Kaity admitted she was "super shocked" but also "super excited" when Zach asked her to spend the night in a museum during her March 2 appearance on the "Click Bait with Bachelor Nation" podcast.
Kaity told the podcast's co-hosts Joe Amabile and Aaron Clancy that she was "blown away" by the "cute and romantic" tent setup but she's "really bad at sleeping" and didn't get any shut eye.
"I usually have a white-noise machine and all this stuff," Kaity said. "So sleeping in that tent wasn't it. It wasn't the play for me. You could hear construction off in the distance and Zach was kind of snoring a little bit."
Kaity went on to explain that when she had told her fellow bachelorettes, "I got no sleep," she really meant that.
Kaity confirmed "nothing happened for those who think something happened" in bed, referring to sex.
"I just couldn't sleep. Hence why I was like, 'I got no sleep.' I think Zach got a little bit of sleep, but not me," Kaity shared.
She added, "I literally just have such a tough time sleeping. The girls even can attest to this... we played thunderstorm sounds [before bed in the house]."
Kaity confirmed she and Zach pushed their beds together and cuddled because it was "chilly in there" -- but then Zach cut their night a little short.
"I remember we were having a conversation and then he was like, 'Okay, goodnight,' and I was like, 'What?!' So I started talking again, because I was like, 'I don't think I heard that right,' and then he [said] 'goodnight' again," Kaity recalled.
"I was like, 'Okay. Alright. Goodnight.' He was like, 'Shut the f-ck up,'" she joked. "I was like, 'Alright, well!'"
While Kaity insisted the other women were so "amazing" and "supportive," she conceded, "But yeah, I think there may have been a level of jealousy, like, they wanted a date like that."
The Bachelor bachelorette did not apply to be on Zach's season
Kaity revealed that her Aunt Jill actually nominated her to compete on The Bachelor's 27th season.
"Yeah, I was super excited... Thank you, Aunt Jill!" Kaity shared with Joe and Aaron on her "Click Bait" podcast appearance.
"But when I first got the email, I thought it was spam, and I told my friend, 'Look at this, this is so funny.' And she was like, 'No, Kaity, I actually think that's serious.' And I was like, 'Oh sh-t, okay.'"
Kaity longs for a man who will stick around in her life and provide her with a sense of security and stability, and that's because the two most important men in Kaity's life have walked out on her.
Kaity's dad left her family and moved to Florida when she was only four-months-old.
"I didn't get to meet him fully until I was 16 when my grandmother, his mother, passed away," Kaity says.
Kaity's father attempted to get back into her life at that point, but since he had missed so many important milestones, it was difficult for her to embrace him in her life.
Following their divorce, Kaity's mother dated a different man who became a father figure to Kaity. However, the man left Kaity's household when she was 14-years-old and in eighth grade, and that was incredibly hard for her.
"With the exception of my brother, every man in my life has failed me," Kaity lamented on the show.
