Zac Clark is an addiction specialist:
According to his official ABC biography, Zac once struggled with addiction. However, after getting sober, he dedicated his life to helping others in need and “started a recovery program focused on helping reintegrate people back into the world after rehab.”
Zac Clark is open about his own struggle with addiction:
During a 2014 gathering at Alvernia University, Zac reflected on how his addiction to drugs and alcohol “set off like 15 years of lying” to his friends and family. “Don’t let this suit fool you,” he expressed at the time. “I am a degenerate alcoholic and drug addict.”
Tayshia is exactly Zac Clark’s type:
Prior to meeting Tayshia, the New Jersey native said he was looking for a woman with “good style” and “curves.” Moreover, he’s attracted to “toughness and confidence.”
Zac Clark is a big sports fan:
Philadelphia sports, to be specific. He “dreams of sharing a Philly Cheesesteak with his future wife while watching the Eagles win a Super Bowl.”
Zac Clark is on social media:
Zac isn’t very active on Instagram. That said, based on his posts, he’s extremely family-oriented, likes to travel and loves to participate in marathons. Zac has several photos of himself throwing up a peace sign at multiple finish lines — including the 2016 and 2019 New York City marathon.
After the season 16 finale of The Bachelorette aired on December 22, Tayshia and Zac were finally able to open up about their whirlwind romance, including their plans to get married … eventually. “We’re just going with the flow at the moment. We’re just gonna date each other,” the Bachelor in Paradise alum explained during a December 23 appearance on Good Morning America.
“Yeah, I mean, I want a big wedding when the day does come,” Zac echoed. “She might think differently and she’s gonna get what she wants, but I wanna date you. You know? I wanna date you and take you out and all those things.”
