In a new episode of the long-running ABC dating show, the senior account executive continues his love journey as he finally meets the families of his four remaining women, Gabi, Ariel, Charity and Kaity.
AceShowbiz -It’s time for Hometown Dates. In the Monday, March 13 episode of “The Bachelor“, leading man Zach Shallcross continued his love journey as he finally met the families of his four remaining women, Gabi, Ariel, Charity and Kaity.
First, Zach visited Gabi in Vermont. The pair kicked off the day by tapping a maple tree and doing a blind taste test of four different syrups. They also had a making out session before meeting her family, including her parents and siblings.
During the meeting, Gabi’s brother pulled him to ask him about his “full intentions” with his sister. “When I got to know Gabi, there’s a comfort level that when we spent time together, when I look at her in the eyes, it’s just like, wow, you are someone I could see a future with,” Zach said. “I don’t have a doubt about that.”
Zach also spoke with Gabi’s mom, who told him that Gabi wanted someone “who can probably help ground her and make her feel secure and safe.” Zach assured her that he “will always act with your daughter’s best intentions,” and Gabi felt like everything went well.
Later, Zach headed to New York City to meet Ariel and her family. Before meeting the family, the two enjoyed a food tour, sampling pizza and pastrami sandwiches at a Jewish deli. They also went to a coffee shop where Ariel opened up to Zach about her family’s immigration story.
The pair met Ariel’s parents and brother Bobby at a Brooklyn winery. When Bobby asked Zach why Arie should choose him, the senior account executive said, “I have a pretty big heart and the person that I end up with at the end of this has my whole entire heart, and I will do anything under the sun to let that be known. I’m a pretty good cook.” Bobby also asked Zach about how his family would react to Ariel’s Jewish family, and Zach believed that “if two people really love each other, families will make it work.”
Bobby continued to grill Zach with questions, including about Ariel’s birthday. Later, Ariel told Zach that she’s “definitely falling for” him and he responded with a kiss.
The next destination was Columbus, Georgia where Zach spent time with Charity before meeting her family. Charity’s dad David liked Zach right away, saying, “They look beautiful together, but she’s my baby girl.”
At one point, one of Charity’s friends asked her about her feelings if Zach didn’t pick her in the end. “If I’m not the person he chooses at the end, will it be easy? Probably not,” Charity admitted. “Actually, not probably, it won’t be easy. It’s a risk that I’m willing to take.”
Meanwhile, one of Charity’s brothers asked Zach about the status of his relationships with the other women. “What I’m doing right now is to the best of my ability, compartmentalizing everything I can,” Zach explained.
On the other hand, Charity told her mom that she’d been falling for Zach but felt “scared” to tell him. After hearing encouragement from her mom, Charity finally told Zach what she felt when they went line dancing. “Hearing that from her makes my heart flutter and makes me really hopeful for what could be us at the end,” Zach said.
For the final Hometown Date, Zach went to Austin to meet Kaity and her family. Zach and Kaity went grocery shopping and picked up some flowers before they met Kaity’s family. Her mom liked Zach immediately as she could tell that her daughter is “very smitten” with him.
Kaity’s mom wanted to know if Zach was feeling the same. He hesitated to use the L-word, but he insisted, “I can absolutely see myself falling in love with her.” As for Kaity, she was confident with her connection with Zach. “I can see you in my family,” she told him after the family meeting. “And I think it just makes it very easy to say that I’m falling in love with you.”
It was time for the Rose Ceremony. “Tonight, I have to make an impossible decision and someone has to go home. I want you to know that decision is solely based on what feels right in my heart with our connection,” Zach said. He decided to give out the roses to Ariel, Kaity and Gabi, which meant that Charity was eliminated. “I hope you know from my heart this is the hardest decision I’ve had to make. I’ve been sick to my stomach all day,” Zach told Charity, who was in tears.
“I took a big risk, obviously, coming here and putting my heart out on the line,” she said, “And I knew that from night one the moment that you spoke and the moment that I knew it was you, I knew that this experience was going to be something incredible. It’s bittersweet for sure.” Zach responded, “You deserve all the love. I couldn’t give it to you.”
In confessional, Charity said, “It burns because it doesn’t make sense. It makes no f**king sense to me.”
