New The bachelor Starring Zach Shallcross gives viewers a rundown on what to expect from the 27th episode of the ABC dating series. Zach promises a throwback season of love and romance after his relationship collapsed in season 19 of The Bachelorette with Rachel Recchia. He promises fans that they will “actually see love and not a bull****”.
Zach believes The bachelor can exist without the drama that pervades each season. He thinks the franchise candidates use the word love lightly at times.
“I feel like them Bachelor World – Bachelors/Bachelorettes – they coined the various concepts of love. ‘Love, love, I love you.’ For me, yeah, it was something that was definitely on my mind,” he told Us Weekly.
He continued, “I’m someone who believes you have one true love, sort of the one person your heart longs for. The one you think about when you go to bed. The ones you think about when you wake up. You only have one love, but there are different degrees of love to get to this point.
“And your heart knows what it wants. It can be pulled in different directions. But for me, I’m a firm believer that there is only one true love,” Zach revealed.
Before the first episode of the season, Zach committed The bachelor clear to viewers what to expect in Season 27. He told fans he hopes to see much of the drama of previous seasons reflected in the rearview mirror and look forward to a less stressful journey, similar to previous seasons of the franchise.
“I would say to the critics and the fans, if you look at something or this show and actually want to see love and not a bull**** and a scene or a nude, then I think you’re going to love that [season]’ the 26-year-old told Us Weekly.
“However, if you’re someone who wants the unnecessary silly drama – fine, [but] I might not be your type. Plain and simple.”
After his bachelorette Experience went awry, Zach admits he learned what he thinks will work in his relationships while navigating his own Bachelor Season. He says he knows what he wants and what it takes to achieve a loving and committed union.
Zach admits to having communication problems with Rachel. He will address this shortage as he builds relationships with 30 new candidates. “I think one rule was that I wanted to meet and talk to all the women that I could [with] what time allows and work can do. That was the most important thing to me,” Zach said.
The new season of The bachelor begins tonight at 8 p.m. EST on ABC.
