According to Variety, ABC has decided to have the 26-year-old IT CEO serve as the season 27 host after examining a number of candidates, including Nate Mitchell.
On the season debut of Rachel Recchia and Gabby Windey in July, Zach was introduced to the Bachelor Nation. He grew close to the 26-year-old pilot right away and didn't hesitate to take her rose when the two women split their suitors in episode two.
"It was just she and I conversing, and I got the impression that she wasn't really being herself. Sometimes it was really fake, he claimed to host Jesse Palmer.
Zach stated at the time that he was taken aback by Rachel's behaviour, which included harping on their six-month age gap and doubting his readiness to pop the question.
They formally parted goodbye in Tuesday's episode after Zach claimed he didn't see "the real Rachel" on the overnight date, only the "Bachelorette version."
Regarding Zach's purported casting, Us Weekly has contacted ABC for comment. Jesse had previously hinted that the next Bachelor would be revealed in the second half of the finale during Tuesday's telecast.
According to ABC, Zach's ideal lady is kind, gentle, and prepared for romance since Zach is eager to pile on the sex.
Nothing makes him happier than watching his partner's face light up when he gives them a thoughtful present, and he enjoys planning thoughtful surprises.
