Lots of kisses, lots of drama and lots (and lots) of tears. That can only mean one thing: Another season of “The Bachelor” is on the horizon.
ABC is gearing up for the 27th season of “The Bachelor,” and ahead of its 2023 premiere, the network has released a promo for its first dating show.
Season 27 will star Zach Shallcross, a contestant on the latest season of “The Bachelorette,” starring leading ladies Gabby Winday and Rachel Recchia. Shallcross was a finalist with Rachia, and had an amazing send-off at the end of his storyline – and if the teaser for his own season is any indication, Shallcross’ own journey will be even more impressive.
“Do I deserve this? I do not know. But I’m very happy,” Shallcross said in the first promo. Later, that mood quickly changes and his smile turns to hysterical tears.
“I feel like a failure. I feel like I’ve let myself down, and I feel like I’ve let the women down,” he once said.
At another point, he cries over one of the contestants and looks completely heartbroken, saying, “I don’t even know what happened. I saw something with her. I didn’t expect this,” he said.
It’s not just the leading man who seems to be on an emotional journey. The ladies vying for Shallcross’s heart were also left in tears in the juicy footage. “We all want Zac, so the claws are about to come out,” said one contestant.
Shallcross was seen pulling a globe with his suitors. The days are packed with international travel, horse-drawn carriage rides, helicopter rides, hot air balloon rides, sky diving and snorkeling. The promo shows him working out in the ocean, working out in a jacuzzi, working out on the beach and setting off fireworks.
Former “Bachelor” star Sean Lowe makes an appearance in the new trailer — and surprisingly, so does Bachelor Nation alum Victoria Fuller. And in another surprise, Tahzuan Hawkins — who appeared on “The Bachelor” Season 23 and Seasons 6 and 7 of “Bachelor in Paradise” — appeared in Shallcross’ season promo. “Tahzuan is going to steal my man,” said one of the contestants. Another woman said, “We don’t want another woman here!” she said
The new season of “The Bachelor” premieres on January 23, 2023.
