Anaheim Hills native Zach Shallcross makes debut on ABC’s ‘The Bachelor’ – Orange County Register

Zach Shallcross won the hearts of fans everywhere in “The Bachelor” and “The Bachelorette” as he competed for the love of one of the singles Rachel Recchia on season 19 of “The Bachelorette” last year.

The 26-year-old tech executive traveled home and introduced Recchia to his family at their home in Anaheim Hills. Viewers also discovered that Shallcross was the nephew of actor Patrick Warburton, the man who played Puddy on “Seinfeld” and many other characters from movies and television shows. Uncle Patrick was also there to meet Recchia during his visit to the family’s home.

Unfortunately, it wasn’t meant to be, and Recchia broke Shallcross’s heart. However, during the filming of “After the Last Rose” last year, Shallcross was announced as the 27th single. Season 2 began airing on ABC on Monday night, January 23, and she looked dashing in her fitted blue suit, but a total of 30 women showed up at the Agoura Hills Singles Mansion to try and get her last rose.

“I still feel like it was a dream,” he said in the opening moments of the show. “I am a point in my life to really settle down and find my wife.”

At many points, he brings in all the audio quotes from the intro that “Bachelor/Bachelorette” fans have been waiting for, including “This works, I know my wife is here,” and “This is my biggest fear… falling.” falling in love with two people… is horrible.”

They’re filled with love stories filled with sweet and tender moments and dramatic outbursts that leave audiences baffled and wonder why they keep watching from season to season. Aren’t we enough? No! We want more and this season is already delivering on that.

So grab a glass of champagne and let’s dive into what’s going on here with our hometown bachelor and break this premiere episode into delicious little nuggets.

weird equals cute

First of all, every woman on this show is stunning. There will be no embarrassment here. For whatever reason they agreed to put themselves out there – hopefully to really find love? – on national television. Most of the women walked in with confidence and fierce demeanor, but two were a bit odd. Not in an annoying way, but in a cute and loving way.

First up is Jessica, 23, an e-commerce coordinator from Florida. She was the first woman to get out of the limo, and she was visibly shaking. Shallcross, who had been in this position before him, put him at ease. “I felt that way too,” she said. “I was nervous too.” They met one-on-one at the mansion later, and the two seemed to compliment each other well. As the nerves melted for the couple, they both went in for their first kiss. He bought a rose.

Then there was Greer. He is 24 years old and a medical sales representative from Houston, Texas. The producers had a fun introduction to her before she entered the mansion, but she was so weird and crazy. She referred to herself in the third person and said, “I love my life, but dating is terrible”. Acceptance.

But Greer and Shallcross have one thing in common: He also refers to himself in the third person throughout the episode. The two of them are so cute together. They seemed to really bond, as they spent one-on-one time at the mansion and he went in for the kiss. It wasn’t just a kiss, they made love so hard that the other girls’ necks were whipped and they tried to spy on the couple with passionate lips. He gave Greer his first impression, it’s a huge deal.
