When Zach Shallcross was chosen because the successor to Clayton Echard, followers promptly branded him with an unflattering nickname.
To his credit score, nonetheless, “the Boring Bachelor” has so far defied expectations.
Sadly, he did so by being extra brutally heartless than any Bachelor in current reminiscence.
Most likely not the change in popularity that Zach was seeking to pull off!
However frankly, Shallcross has nobody in charge however himself.
Take his current interactions with Greer Blitzer, for instance.
In a single dialog, Zach was so impolite to Greer that former Bachelor Nick Viall labeled Shallcross a “d-ck.”
After that convo, Greer contracted Covid and needed to miss a number of days of filming.
When she recovered, producers shipped her all the way in which to Budapest, simply so Zach might dump her in individual.
“I’m really exited to see her again, but when there is time that is continued to be taken away, it is jeopardizing what Greer and I have,” Zach mentioned in a confessional.
An excited Greer advised Zach she felt “really, really good” — however that feeling didn’t final lengthy.
“Obviously, like, when I found that I tested positive, like, feeling like my story with you was going to end really sucked,” she defined.
“So, I do see something between us and I guess, like, I was just wondering where you’re at.”
Zach countered that the connection began “so fast and hot” that he discovered himself “still trying to piece all this together.”
“I’m just following my gut, my heart, and to give a hometown rose, I need to feel 100 percent confident that I can see a future and I don’t feel that,” Zach continued.
“I would never want to string you along.”
“I completely understand,” Greer whispered, presumably in order that Zach wouldn’t hear the tears in her voice.
Now, it’s necessary to notice that Greer wasn’t the one lady that Zach despatched dwelling that night time.
In actual fact, he kicked Brooklyn to the curb only a few hours later.
(And that was after he made her wade into the bacterial cesspool that was an enormous public bathhouse.)
However the Greer dismissal appeared to anger followers essentially the most, largely as a result of feeling that she was unnecessarily put by means of the emotional wringer.
Dumping keen suitors is a part of the Bachelor’s job, in fact, however there’s a sense amongst followers that Zach is just not dealing with that accountability effectively.
