The Bachelor Season 27 is back tonight! This week Zach Shallcross and the remaining contestants will be heading to Estonia to continue the journey of romance.
As we know, last week, their was a significant detour from the usual Bachelor shenanigans. Zach ended up testing positive for COVID-19, and it took a major hit to all the plans. Instead of going on dates, Zach had to quarantine (I’m not sure why Gabi didn’t because she was on a date with him right before?).
But luckily, our Bachelor is quick to think on his feet and decided to take things back to pandemic lockdown era. He set up a virtual rose ceremony, and had the cocktail party via Zoom so he could still have conversations with the contestants.
Was it perfect? Nope. Was it good enough, given the situation? Yup.
I know people had a lot to say about the whole thing, but I respected that he found a solution rather than leave everyone hanging. Way to go, Zach!
When is the next episode of The Bachelor?
The next episode of The Bachelor airs tonight, Monday, February 27th, on ABC from 8 PM EST to 10 PM EST. As mentioned, Zach and the remaining contestants will head to Estonia and embark on a new slate of dates and romantic moments.
There is a lot of lost time to make up for after last week’s health fiasco, so Zach has a lot of kissing and cuddling to do. We all saw how the contestants reacted when they learned of Zach’s diagnosis–a lot of it was quite selfish, if I’m being honest. But that’s neither here or there.
See you all tonight!
You can watch the episode on ABC or with FuboTV (which offers a free trial to watch all episodes of The Bachelor franchise live!).
