Kaity Biggar is one of two women left in the race to win Bachelor Zach Shallcross’s heart. The 28-year-old accepted a rose from Zach on the Monday, March 20 episode of “The Bachelor” after their Fantasy Suite date in Thailand.
Kaity and Zach’s date may have ended on a high note, but it didn’t start out that way. During their one-on-one date in Thailand, Zach revealed to Kaity that he had been intimate with one of the other women. In a confessional, Kaity said she felt “crushed” after learning Zach had slept with someone else.
“I’m confused, I feel distant from him,” she said about Zach. “I’m not happy.”
Kaity said she wanted to go home in a confessional but decided to stick it out and continue their relationship.
So, who is Kaity Biggar?
Here’s what you need to know about Zach’s finalist:
1. She Is a Traveling Nurse
According to Kaity’s Instagram bio, she works as a travel nurse. The ABC star graduated from Laurentian University in 2019, with a degree in nursing. “The Bachelor” finalist commemorated her graduation with a June 2019 Instagram post.
“Nursing school survivor🎓🤪,” she wrote alongside a photo of her holding her diploma and graduation cap.
Kaity spoke about her job during an appearance on the Bachelor Nation podcast “Click Bait” on March 2. She told host Joe Amabile and guest host Aaron Clancy that “it’s always been a dream of mine to be a travel nurse.”
On the podcast, Kaity said she started her career in San Antonio, Texas and later relocated to Austin, Texas, where Zach also lives.
2. She Almost Turned Down ‘The Bachelor’
On the March 2 episode of “Click Bait,” Kaity revealed that her Aunt Jill nominated her for “The Bachelor.” The Kingston native said she didn’t believe it when producers first reached out to her to be on the show.
“When I first got the email, I thought it was spam,” she said.
Although Kaity was open to finding love, she told Joe and Aaron she almost suffered a case of cold feet.
“I actually wasn’t going to come,” she said. “I think it was when I first got the official phone call … I was shaking in my boots. I was like, ‘I don’t think I’m [going to come].'”
Kaity said that at the time of filming, she had just settled into a new city and had reservations about breaking her nursing contract.
“I was extremely apprehensive,” she said.
But luckily for viewers, Kaity decided to take a chance on love and eventually agreed to do the show.
3. She Grew Up Figure Skating
According to Kaity’s ABC bio, she grew up figure skating. In 2016, the 28-year-old paid tribute to her figure skating days when she wore a “Blades of Glory”-inspired costume for Halloween. Kaity shared a photo of herself and a friend wearing their “Blades of Glory” costumes on Instagram. Kaity’s look was inspired by actor Jon Heder’s character Jimmy MacElroy, while her friend channeled Will Ferrell’s character Chazz Michael Michaels.
“We’re going to skate to one song, one song only #bladesofglory,” Kaity captioned the post.
4. She Is Looking for Her Prince Charming
While it’s unclear if Kaity will end up with Zach, she knows what traits she is looking for in a future husband.
In Kaity’s ABC bio, she stated she is looking for her “forever Prince Charming.”

Kaity went into more detail about what she is looking for on the March 2 episode of “Click Bait.”
