Zach Shallcross had a ‘no sex’ rule before going to the fantasy suites with his finalists Gabi Elnicki, Ariel Frenkel and Kaity Biggar.
“Zach puts some parameters around fantasy suites that he thinks is going to help him make his decision at the end of the day,” Jesse says. “So Zach decides that he is not going to sleep with any of the three women, that he’s going focus on other means and ways of progressing his relationships, but things don’t exactly go that way.”
“When Zach told me he wasn’t going have sex with any of the women, I was sort of like, ‘You’re going be able to do this? You’re gonna be tempted, you know, the fantasy suites are there for a reason.’ And sexual compatibility is a really big thing, especially if you’re gonna be getting down on a knee and asking someone to marry you,” Jesse continued. “Also, what if the women want to have sex with you? You’re kind of taking it off the table. That was probably the most shocking moment because in all honesty, part of me kind of knew how it was going to end.”
“I think to a lot of people, this week is viewed as sex week. I know it’s not conventional, but no sex,” The Bachelor tells host Jesse Palmer in the trailer.
In the trailer, Zach tells Gabi that, despite his no sex rule with the finalists, he was intimate with another woman.
“I was intimate this week,” he tells her, to which Gabi tells producers, “I feel very stupid. I feel disgusting. I feel ugly.”
We then see Zach breaking down in tears in a conversation with the host, “I feel like I let myself down, and I feel like I let the women down.”
So who does Zach sleep with on The Bachelor 2023?
According to Reality Steve, Zach broke his fantasy suite rule for Kaity Biggar.
“From what I can say is — a lot of things do change and going into that week, I thought I could basically set up, like, a guideline for myself and a guideline for others to try to make it less messy and it bit us in the ass,” Zach tells US Weekly.
Jesse said that Zach is “extremely happy” with how his season ended.
“He tells me that he’s extremely happy,” the host says. “I think Bachelor Nation is going to be absolutely thrilled at the outcome. I don’t want to speak on behalf of Zach. It was a very difficult journey to get to this point. Everybody up to this point has seen that, but the hardest part is yet to come in Thailand. And it’s all going to end up the way it’s supposed to. Zach tells me that he wouldn’t change anything about it, and he’s thrilled. So if he’s happy, I’m happy.”
