It’s that time again, Bachelor Nation! The Bachelor Season 27 is right around the corner, with Zach Shallcross as the leading man. Even though he didn’t find love as a contestant on The Bachelorette Season 19, he is now getting another chance to find love in his season.
Zach will meet thirty single women on his journey to find true love. He already met five contestants during the After the Final Rose show, which concluded Rachel Recchia’s and Gabby Windey’s season of The Bachelorette. With that in mind, let’s get to know the women on Zach’s season of The Bachelor, starting with Jess Girod.
Jess Girod Age
Jess is 23 years old, three years younger than Zach. She calls Winter Springs, Florida home, where she enjoys spending time playing Bananagrams, which according to her bio, she can never get tired of. She comes from a large Puerto Rican family and hopes to bring some flair to The Bachelor. Although she is one of the younger contestants, she is a mature woman that knows what she is looking for in her soulmate.
Jess Girod Instagram
This The Bachelor contestant has over 18 thousand followers on Instagram. Her page is full of posts posing with friends, spending time at the beach, and enjoying her time as a college student at Florida State University. Being from the sunshine state, Jess says she never leaves the house without sunscreen.
She considers herself a hopeless romantic, with her ideal date activity being playing with puppies. Take notes, Zach. Jess hopes Zach can write the ending for her fairytale love story. Who knows, maybe Taylor Swift will even write a song about it. Check out her post below about her recent travel to New York City and listening to Taylor Swift.
Jess Girod Job
Jess currently works as an e-commerce coordinator. For those wondering what this is, in today’s world, it can vary. E-commerce covers any online storefront, and the coordinator attributes most likely means Jess is responsible for maintaining the site, products, and transactions and marketing the products. According to her LinkedIn profile, she currently works in the women’s contemporary department of Neiman Marcus Group. She graduated from Florida State in 2021 with a degree in retail entrepreneurship and marketing. Let’s hope she can market herself well to Zach on The Bachelor!
The Bachelor Season 27 premieres on Monday, January 23rd at 8 PM EST.
