The big season finale of The Bachelorette aired Tuesday night and revealed Rachel and Gabby’s shocking conclusion. After the drama concluded and fans saw how everything shockingly played out, everyone met the new lead for The Bachelor. Who is it?
The Bachelor officially revealed
As it turns out Steve was 100% correct with his spoiler. The Bachelor is Zach Shallcross.
When he was announced and asked how he feels he said, “There’s no words, I’m just taking this in right now. I’m obviously really nervous right now but this is once in a lifetime.”
Zach also shared what he’s looking for and that is to ultimately find his best friend. He said, “find my best friend, fall in love with my best friend and really walk away with someone for the rest of my life.”
He also had some advice for the women coming to meet him. Zach wants them to be open, be themselves and allow themselves to be vulnerable to falling in love.
Zach also shared that he is ready to try again to find love. He said, “I really needed to take some time away and reflect and heal that broken heart. But really what I learned from that experience was that I didn’t change how ready I was. I’m now more ready. That’s almost fuel to the fire.”
Overall Zach is honored and excited to be The Bachelor. He’s nervous but ready to begin his journey to find love.
