The Bachelor followers have speculated about what could have transpired between Zach Shallcross and Rachel Reccia earlier than his exit from final yr’s season of The Bachelorette.
Before he was introduced as the brand new lead for The Bachelor Shallcross, 27, was a contestant on the 2022 version of The Bachelorette, which was fronted by two ladies for the primary time; one being Reccia and the opposite being Gabby Windey.
Shallcross made it to the the ultimate episode and was one among Reccia’s prime three suitors, however his journey on the ABC courting present got here to a dramatic finish after he and Reccia had an off-air disagreement throughout their evening within the “Fantasy Suites.”
Fans noticed as, the morning after their evening alone collectively, Shallcross questioned Reccia’s character and said that what he was seeing “wasn’t the real Rachel,” earlier than taking himself out of the competitors.
Shallcross later apologized to Reccia at The Bachelorette season finale and, although each steered that the disagreement had been sparked by a dialog about their ages and whether or not Shallcross was able to be engaged, particular particulars about their dialogue had been saved beneath wraps.
With Shallcross now being the main focus of the newest season of The Bachelor, followers have been discussing his habits on social media and suppose they might know what went improper between him and Reccia that evening within the Fantasy Suites.
Over the previous few episodes, viewers have identified that Shallcross seems to get uncomfortable when conversations develop into tough or emotional, as has occurred with contestants Jess Girod and Greer Blitzer.
Some The Bachelor followers have speculated that this might have been the rationale for the breakdown of his romance with Reccia, although in fact that is simply fan opinion.
Taking to Twitter, one viewer steered: “I think I know why Zach said Rachel was a different person after their overnight on her season: that was probably the first time she expressed doubts and insecurities to him, and we’ve all seen how poorly he handles that #TheBachelor.”
As one other posted: “Starting to think maybe the issue that happened on Zach and Rachel’s fantasy suite was that Rachel expressed some sort of insecurity to Zach, who then immediately bounced, as we’ve seen him do all season on #thebachelor #TheBachelorABC.”
“The way Zach handles difficult conversations is starting to help me understand what might have happened in the fantasy suites with Rachel… #TheBachelor,” added a 3rd.
While a fourth tweeted: “it’s interesting how folks were quick to vilify rachel after zach’s claims about her, and now we’re seeing him as someone who doesn’t seem to care about the feelings/concerns of the women he’s dating. specifically, the women (you can tell) he isn’t interested in #TheBachelor.”
Despite the obvious criticism of Shallcross from some followers, different viewers have confirmed their help for the star.
“Rachel really dropped the ball with Zach. He’s such a respectful, genuine & sweet man. Definitely one of my favorite bachelors thus far #TheBachelor,” gushed one Shallcross supporter.
