After ABC aired The Bachelor'sthird episode of Season 27 on Monday night, Christina took to Instagram and posted a photo from her one-on-one date with Zach in which she was wearing a black dress with roses on it.
"Yaaas!! I LOVED my rose dress from Date #1 so much! Thrilled to see it featured in the middle of the group date again in tonight's episode!!" Christina joked in the caption.
The Bachelor apparently edited one of Christina's confessionals from her one-on-one date with Zach into the group date, for which she wore a similar floral shirt and black mini-skirt.
After being shown making out with Zach, Christina says in the confessional that aired on Monday night's show, "This is so validating that what I was feeling was real. So to get that rose tonight, it means so much to me."
When the afterparty following the football group date was nearing its end, The Bachelor made it seem like Christina wanted -- and was expecting -- Zach's group-date rose.
Once Zach gave the rose to Charity Lawson instead, Christina expressed, "I'm just confused, honestly. Maybe I missed something, but I'm just confused... I'm mad that it wasn't me. Duh!"
Christina had already angered and frustrated her fellow bachelorettes by allegedly constantly talking about her one-on-one date with Zach and meeting his family. Christina's reaction to Charity's rose then put an even bigger target on Christina's back.
"Christina definitely hijacked that moment from Charity like she's trying to intimidate and manipulate and be calculated. I'm just sick of her B-S," Brooklyn complained to the cameras.
During the pool party that preceded the third Rose Ceremony of the season, Brianna Thorbourne warned Zach that Christina had made Charity and herself cry.
Brianna claimed Christina had made women in the house feel insecure and worried to open up and be their authentic selves. Brianna led Zach to believe that the dating environment didn't feel safe for his bachelorettes due to Christina's presence.

"I'm feeling such a strong connection with Zach, and I know he feels it too," Christina, a single mother, vented in a confessional.
"I can see him being a stepdad. I feel like I'm just hanging on for my life. I think he trusts me, hopefully, but how do you say three girls -- and one who went home because of me -- are lying? It just doesn't look good for me, and it really hurts."
Although Christina insisted she never meant to hurt anybody and had addressed her conflict with the other women, Zach denied her a rose at the Rose Ceremony.
"Any one with eyes can see that was more about Zach not being ready to be a stepdad rather than a girl feeling 'unsafe' lol," The Bachelor alum Christen Whitney commented on Christina's Instagram post, referencing how Zach was "overwhelmed" and "terrified" upon learning Christina has a young daughter back home.
And a fan commented, "Love how the show tried to make you the villain but all of America still thinks your the best lol."
A third Instagram user wrote, "Anyone else think that Zach couldn't handle her being a single mom so they forced the bad edit? She's also got wayyyyy too much personality for that robot."
