Zach Shallcross makes his debut as the star of “The Bachelor” as Season 27 premieres Monday (Jan. 23), and he’ll have plenty of company. A total of 30 women are scheduled to show up in the season opener, though as “Bachelor” fans know, that doesn’t mean all of ‘em are necessarily going to be there for long.
(How to watch: “The Bachelor” airs at 8 p.m. Mondays on ABC. No cable or antenna? FuboTV offers a free trial; and DirecTV Stream also offers a free trial)
In case you’ve forgotten just who Zach is — and if you have, we’re not totally surprised — he was featured last season in “The Bachelorette,” in which Rachel Recchia and Gabby Windey were the co-bachelorettes. Rachel liked Zach enough to make him one of the final three men she chose to stick around. But things took a weird turn after Rachel and Zach spent a night in the fantasy suite.
Instead of a romantic one-on-one encounter, the fantasy suite night ended with obvious awkwardness between the two. Zach told host Jesse Palmer that he found Rachel “very inauthentic” when they were together, without cameras.
Zach then, as “The Bachelor” bio page explains, “won Bachelor Nation’s affection when he made the difficult decision to end his journey on ‘The Bachelorette.’” Did he? Oh well. Zach is also, as his bio informs us, a 26-year-old tech executive from Anaheim Hills, California. He divides his time between Texas and Orange County, and, if he’s looking for an example of a long-term commitment, his parents have been married for more than 30 years.
