Is she The One? Bachelor star Zach Shallcross quickly hit it off with contestant Gabriella “Gabi” Elnicki during season 27. Keep reading to see spoilers, clues about their potential relationship and more.

Does Bachelor Zach Pick Gabi?

Gabi, 25, was one of Zach’s final three contestants along with Ariel Frenkel and Kaity Biggar, but Zach ultimately didn’t propose to her. She left the leading man with her head held high, though with tears, and seemingly confirmed that she knew in her gut that she wasn’t his choice. “If it was me, I’d know it was me,” she told Zach, before leaving the Anaheim native behind. 


The California native teased that he developed strong feelings for two women during a teaser clip for his season, which aired after the premiere episode on January 23.

“Falling in love with two people is terrifying,” he can be heard saying over a montage of clips. “This journey has been very difficult both times … it could be so heartbreaking and confusing, but as messy as it’s gotten, I found my best friend and it feels really good.”

The leading man then says,  “I just know that she is The One. I’m gonna propose to the love of my life and I can’t wait.”

Are Bachelor Zach and Kaity Still Together?

It is unclear where Zach and Kaity stand after filming. Bachelor Nation couples are contractually obligated to keep their romance a secret until the season finale airs. Of course, some are better at hiding their love than others. 

Zach assured that he was serious about finding his future wife prior to filming. The tech executive even said he felt “blindsided” by Bachelorette star Rachel Recchia asking him if he was ready to settle down during their overnight date on season 19. Their awkward conversation eventually led to their split and the pilot, 26, went on to get engaged to now-ex Tino Franco. 

“My take on that is when you know, you know,” Zach told People post-show, assuring that he doesn’t feel too young to get married. “I don’t think that there’s anything where there’s an age limit on when you decide you want to fall in love and get married. if you are ready and you feel well equipped with yourself, you love yourself, you trust yourself and you want to share that with someone else, it doesn’t matter how old you are.”

Who Were Bachelor Zach’s Final 4?

Charity Lawson also scored a hometown date in addition to Gabi, Ariel, 28, and Kaity. However, the 26-year-old Georgia native got eliminated the following rose ceremony. However, fans will get to see more of Charity, as she was named the new Bachelorette for season 20.
