The announcement of 26-year-old Zach Shallcross as the lead for the upcoming 27th season of The Bachelor created a lot of excitement among fans of the hit series. Zach recently made the top three of Gabby and Rachel’s season of The Bachelorette, where he competed solely for the affection of Rachel Recchia. Zach decided to leave the competition after questioning his future with Rachel following their fantasy suite date. He revealed that Rachel was different without the cameras, which made him doubt her feelings. However, Zach’s self-elimination won him many admirers within the Bachelor Nation. Thankfully, fans will get to watch the endearing California native continue his journey to find a wife.
The first episode of the upcoming season 27 is scheduled to air on Monday, January 23, 2023. As a result, this year’s installment of the popular reality TV series is beginning a bit later than usual. However, behind-the-scenes talks suggest that producers decided to go with a later date to avoid scrambling for ratings with the just concluded 2022 FIFA world cup. Despite the late start, viewers will still enjoy the usual 12 episodes of the show — and host Jesse Palmer has promised this season will be packed with a lot of love and drama.
