Is Bachelor Zach Engaged?

Zach, 26, is engaged! The leading man proposed during the season finale, expressing all the way back in the season preview that he had found the One (though it came as a struggle).

“Falling in love with two people is terrifying,” he said over a montage of clips from his season. “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.”

Since he first appeared as a Bachelorette contestant on Rachel Recchia and Gabby Windey’s joint season, he has been very open about his desire to settle down sooner than later.

The California native was even taken back by Rachel, 27, asking if he was ready for marriage during their fantasy suite date. Zach said he felt “blindsided” by the question and the awkwardness eventually led to their split before the finale. The pilot went on to get engaged to now-ex Tino Franco. 

“My take on that is when you know, you know,” Zach told People, 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 Does Bachelor Zach Pick?

The lucky lady who receives Zach’s final rose is Kaity Biggar and they are now engaged, making Gabi Elnicki his runner-up.

Zach said the “No. 1 thing” that he wanted to talk to his contestants about was their readiness to walk down the aisle, adding that he didn’t want to find out any “hard truths” once it was “too late.”

“What I’m going to focus on is having that open line of communication and hopefully building that trust to where they can always feel comfortable of letting me know where they really feel,” he explained. “I never want any of the women to feel caught off guard or blindsided.” 

Who Were Bachelor Zach’s Final 4?

In addition to Gabi and Kaity, Ariel Frenkel and Charity Lawson were amonth the final four girls. Each one receives a hometown date — Gabi’s took place in Vermont while Zach visited Ariel in New York City, Charity in Columbus, Georgia, and Kaity in Austin, Texas. 

Charity got eliminated before the group jetted off to Krabi, Thailand, for fantasy suite dates. While she was heartbroken at the time, the family therapist has since been announced as the new Bachelorette for season 20.
