Zach Shallcross just hit an unexpected snag on his journey for love. On Monday’s episode of “The Bachelor”, the tech executive contracted COVID-19, forcing him to cancel two of his three dates, hold a virtual cocktail party and send two women home via a virtual rose ceremony.
The week in London started off on a positive note, as Zach treated Gabi to a royal-themed date. The duo visited a perfumier, tried on hats and tiaras, played with corgis and drank tea. When Gabi returned to the other women laden with shopping bags and gifted with a stunning gown for her to wear that evening, Greer stormed out crying.
“Every girl that’s been on a one-on-one date with him told me specifically that he said to them, ‘I curated this specifically for you. I chose this date because of you,'” Greer complained. “That was like my personality to a T. That was torture.”
Gabi was unbothered, and set off for the nighttime portion of her date. During that, she opened up about her struggle with body image and confidence, and thanked Zach for making her feel good throughout the day. He responded by giving her the rose.
That was the end of the positivity for the week, though. When the morning came around, the women on the group date learned that Zach was sick and unable to join them for a day of tourist activities in London. They made the best of the situation, and held up hope that they’d see Zach at that evening’s cocktail party.
Despite dressing to the nines in anticipation of Zach’s arrival, the women were disappointed when they were once again stood up. While many of them were left in tears because of the situation, Brooklyn said she was “too p**sed off to cry” and Greer fumed, “I gave grace today, I don’t have grace to give tonight.”
