Looking for The One! Bachelor star Zach Shallcross is hoping to find his future wife during season 27. Keep scrolling to see spoilers about who he picks, if he’s engaged and more.

Who Does Bachelor Zach Pick?

Zach’s final rose goes to Kaity Biggar, as Bachelor Nation witnessed during the season finale! Of course, any fan who pays attention to spoilers knows that Reality Steve was the first to break the news. In a February 6, 2023, post via Instagram, Reality Steve acknowledged that while another gossip blog maintains that Gabi Elnicki won the season, his sources confirmed Kaity’s engagement to Zach.

“I’m well aware that for the last two months, another site has said that Gabi is the winner,” Reality Steve wrote. “All I can say is this: My sources have told me it’s Kaity. … I stand by my sources,” he concluded.

His final three women were Gabi, Kaity and Ariel Frenkel, with Ariel getting eliminated after fantasy suite dates. Charity Lawson scored a spot in his final four, but she was eliminated after her hometown date to Columbus, Georgia. However, fans will see more of Charity as season 20’s Bachelorette.

While teasers show Zach falling hard for his final two women, he teased that he used the “L” word very sparingly. 

“Saying ‘I love you’ carries a different weight to it,” the tech sales executive told People on January 20, 2023. “For me, there is only one real love, the one that you want to spend your life with. You can have feelings of love for multiple people, but to me, there can only be that one true love at the end.”

Is Bachelor Zach Engaged?

Yes! Zach and Kaity are engaged. It certainly seems as though their journey to the proposal wasn’t free of complicated feelings, however.

At the beginning of his journey to find love, Zach admitted to falling in love … with more than one contestant. “Falling in love with two people is terrifying,” he said over footage of girls in the house crying. “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 teased a proposal:  “I just know that she is The One. I’m gonna propose to the love of my life and I can’t wait.”

He was also very open about hoping to find “the future Mrs. Shallcross” during his time as Rachel Recchia’s contestant on The Bachelorette. He even said he was “blindsided” when the pilot, 26, asked if he was ready for marriage during their overnight date. 

“My take on that is when you know, you know,” he previously told People in September, 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 Zach’s Final 4 Contestants?

Gabi, 25, Ariel, 28, Charity, 26, and Kaity, 27, all caught Zach’s eye and made it to the final weeks. The leading man said he wanted to avoid finding out any “hard truths” once it was “too late,” so he planned to talk to his contestants early about their intentions. 

“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.”
