Zach Shallcross is the new “Bachelor” star. After things didn’t work out with Gabby Windey or Rachel Recchia, Shallcross was offered an opportunity to hand out roses.
Shallcross, a tech executive who resides in Austin, Texas, had been dating Recchia on the first-ever double “Bachelorette” season, but the two ended their relationship after Recchia questioned whether or not Shallcross was ready for a serious relationship, given that he was only 25-years-old (he has since turned 26).
“I was more than ready to get on one knee,” Shallcross said in a confessional-style interview on the show. “The Rachel that I was falling in love with, I trusted her enough at least to show me her real self and I don’t think I got that. And I still don’t know why or how. What was that Rachel I was getting? That’s the biggest concern to me,” he continued.
Shallcross’ journey to find love kicked off on the “After the Final Rose” special, where he met a few of the women who would be getting to know him better over the course of a few weeks. Now, with the premiere just a couple of months away, spoilers for Shallcross’ season have been revealed.
