Bachelor Zach Shallcross makes fun of himself on New TikTok
Bachelor Zach Shallcross, 26, caught the attention of fans on Sunday, March 12 after posting his first-ever TikTok.
In the Video, Zach poked fun at his inability to hide his feelings as “The Bachelor.” The video began with a close-up on one side of Zach’s face, while a viral TikTok sound said, “Okay, I don’t like this conversation or this person, but I feel like I’m hiding pretty well. Thank God,” ran in the background.
The camera then zoomed out to show Zach with a doubtful expression on his face.
He captioned the video, “I’m not good at hiding my facial expressions 😐”. He added the hashtags “Bachelor” and “Bachelor Nation.”
Zach has earned a reputation for being a straight shooter. The 26-year-old has received both praise and criticism for failing to feign interest in some of the women on The Bachelor.
After Zach sent 23-year-old contestant Jess Girod home, one fan commented, “The Bachelor subreddit which read, “I saw the moment in his eyes when he got the ecst.”
Another user agreed, writing, “Zach just isn’t a naturally warm personality, he’s definitely trying, but he can’t hide it when it comes to women he doesn’t like.”
Fans are reacting to Zach’s TikTok
Fans liked it when Zach had a sense of humor about himself on TikTok. Commenting on the post, they praised the ABC star for being “confident.”
“Confident king,” wrote one TikTok user.
“Well he’s at least self-aware 😂,” commented a second user.
“This is great,” added a third user.
“At least you can laugh at yourself 😂,” wrote a fourth user.
Zach regrets ‘a few interactions’ on ‘The Bachelor’
Zach appeared on the March 7 episode of the Bachelor Nation podcast Bachelor Happy Hour, in which he expressed regret at how he’s had some conversations with the women this season.
“I’m definitely looking back and looking at some situations that I know I could have handled a lot better,” he told hosts and former Bachelorettes Michelle Young, 29, and Becca Kufrin, 32.
Zach said he stands by the order in which he sent the women home, but admitted he didn’t always handle his goodbyes properly.
“There were a few interactions … where I look back and see I let myself down, I let that person down,” he said. “I want to get better at that.”
Zach received backlash for some of his conversations with the women this season, perhaps most notably for his conversation with contestant Greer Blitzer, the medical sales representative based in New York City.
During the week five virtual cocktail party, Greer tried to relate to Zach’s experience as “The Bachelor” by comparing the pressures of running the show to her sales career.
“I had COVID at the end of the year-end quarter, so it messed up my sales career,” she said on the February 20 episode.
Zach tested positive for COVID-19 while filming in London, forcing him to miss quality time with the women.
Zach wasn’t impressed by Greer’s comment. He shot back, “It’s not the same.”
The ABC star received backlash from fans who felt Zach was “impolite” to Greer.
In conversation with diversity After the episode aired, Zach said he felt different about the conversation after watching it on TV.
“When I look at it, I feel completely into her,” he told the outlet. “She was really just trying to connect and relate to me.”
“The Bachelor” airs Mondays at 8 p.m. Eastern Standard Time on ABC.
