The Bachelor Season 27 major spoilers ahead!

We’ve only just said goodbye to Bachelor in Paradise, but it is time to focus on what is next–Zach Shallcross’ season of The Bachelor. In just a couple of months, we’ll get a new season with our hot, charming lead and his group of eager contestants.

During The Bachelorette season finale special, Zach gave out his first Impression Rose just moments after he was announced as the new Bachelor. Host Jesse Palmer surprised him by bringing five contestants out to meet him.

Brianna was the one to catch his eye after she took a selfie with him so they could remember the special moment. Zach was smitten pretty quickly and gave her the rose, saving her from elimination when the season kicks off at the end of January.

Who is The Bachelor Season 27 lead?

We already know it’s Zach Shallcross, who was a contestant on Rachel Recchia and Gabby Windey’s season of The Bachelorette. He made it to Rachel’s final two, but they had a gut-wrenching breakup when she started questioning their relationship. It was very weird and strange, to say the least.

According to his ABC bio, he is “an old-fashioned romantic” who is ready to settle down with someone.

“Zach’s perfect woman is compassionate, kind and ready for romance because Zach is excited to lay it on thick,” his ABC bio says. “Zach is serious about finding a love that will lead to marriage, so whatever grand romantic gesture it takes for him to get there, he’s ready to go!”

Let’s hope that is exactly what he found!

Who are The Bachelor Season 27 contestants?

We are still waiting to get the full cast list but we do know at least five of the contestants that will be on Zach Shallcross’ season of The Bachelor. They all joined the live The Bachelorette special and were introduced to Zach by host Jesse Palmer. There was Brooklyn (25), Brianna (24), Cat (26), Christina (26), and Bailey (27)–of which Brianna got the First Impression Rose.

Don’t worry Bachelor Nation, plenty more contestants to meet!

When does The Bachelor Season 27 premiere?

Mark your calendars because Zach and his group of beautiful, eager women will begin their quest to find love on Monday, Janauary 23 at 8 PM EST on ABC!
