His dates in California included visiting his childhood home with Christina Mandrell, skydiving with Aly Jacobs, and staying overnight at the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles with Kaity Biggar. Zach and the women then traveled to the Bahamas, where he went sailing and snorkeling with Kat Izzo and ATV riding with Brooklyn Willie.
The Bachelor‘s Zach Shallcross tested positive for COVID-19 in London after a romantic one-on-one date with Gabi Elnicki, during which they received the royal treatment. He and the women then went to Tallinn, Estonia, where he went on a horse-drawn carriage ride with Charity Lawson and spent another day at a nude sauna retreat with Ariel Frenkel. Zach also participated in many group dates in these places, where he and the women explored while getting to know each other better. As Zach’s season enters its final weeks, he and the remaining women still have hometown dates and Fantasy Suite dates to look forward to.

During their time there, Zach went on two one-on-one dates. The first one went to Kaity, who received the date rose. They went to Fisherman’s Bastion, one of the best-known monuments in Budapest. Zach took Brooklyn on the second one-on-one date, but Reality Steve revealed that he sent her home before the date was over. No further details were provided about why he chose to do this. Kat and Greer were also eliminated in Hungary, which means Kaity, Gabi, Ariel, and Charity received the hometown dates.
5 Zach Shallcross & Gabi Elnicki Had A Hometown Date In Vermont
Zach and Gabi, a 25-year-old senior account executive, spent their first hometown date in Vermont. Gabi is from Pittsford, Vermont, and even shared some of the region’s maple syrup with Zach on premiere night. Their date took place on October 31, 2022, and Reality Steve did not reveal if the date was Halloween-themed. Gabi and Zach have developed a very strong connection after a slow start, so it will be interesting to see him interact with her and her family on this date.

Although Zach and Charity have shared a strong connection so far this season, he eliminated her at the rose ceremony. This means that she did not make it to the final three. Charity and Zach have had an easy relationship since day one, so it will be heartbreaking to find out what went wrong between the two of them that caused him to eliminate her so close to the end of the season.
2 Zach Shallcross & Kaity Biggar Went Home To Austin, Texas
For the final hometown date, Zach and Kaity, a 28-year-old ER travel nurse, went to his home in Austin, Texas.

While in Austin, Zach and Kaity were seen in the South Congress area. Kaity has had one of the strongest connections with Zach since the very beginning and is the only one who already stayed overnight with him. She was also the one woman who brought a basket of goodies to his hotel room when he was sick with COVID-19, which meant a lot to Zach.
