Of course drama is a major aspect of the reality romance franchise, creating buzz among viewers while also weeding out bad matches. One of the biggest shocks we can recall from Gabby and Rachel’s season was Zach’s heartbroken response to his fantasy suite with Rachel, claiming she was a completely different person than he thought. The plot twist, while serving to make us all question what could’ve possibly happened between the two, also secured his fate as the next Bachelor.
At the beginning of Zach’s experience it was a relief to see that someone could actually be doing this for the right reasons. Any drama brought to his attention was immediately addressed and the person at the root sent home. However, what seemed like a Bachelor Nation dream-come-true quickly took a turn. A red flag pattern emerged in which showing opposition to Zach or asking for validation meant being shown the door. From Greer getting shamed in her attempt to relate with and comfort him to Jess receiving flack for simply wanting a real date with her potential future husband. As everything is getting more serious and emotions running higher, the problem only appears to be escalating.
Obviously, no one other than Zach and Rachel ever will know what really went down on that infamous evening. But given all that we’ve seen so far of Zach as Bachelor, it certainly makes you wonder.
