Zach’s search for love got a little more complicated on Monday’s episode of The Bachelor.

During their conversation, Greer tried to relate to Zach’s experience by bringing up the pressures of her job.

“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 wasn’t impressed by Greer’s comment. He shot back, “It’s not the same.”

After the episode aired, Zach received backlash from fans on social media, who felt his response was “condescending” And “inappropriate.”

Zach’s ex and former Bachelorette Rachel Recchia came to his defense.

“Let’s all be mindful and show a little compassion and grace to the main cast of the show,” she wrote Tweet from February 21st.

“His reaction was super misplaced,” wrote a fan.

“Girl, he was mad for no reason,” Another user commented.

“What a tool he is – he loves these comments – NEXT 😂😂😂🔥👏”, a third user wrote.

Rachel called Zach because he claimed she was fake

Earlier this month, Rachel called Zach after he implied she was being inauthentic during their time together on The Bachelorette.

Zach appeared on the Almost Famous podcast. on Jan. 20, where he didn’t hold back on sharing his candid opinion of Rachel on “The Bachelorette.”

“There was a complete lack of communication,” he said, recalling their time together in the Fantasy Suite. “When we got to the actual Fantasy Suite and had the time to just talk and sort things out ahead of the most important date of our lives, she treated me like I was a total stranger.”

Rachel responded to Zach’s claims on the February 7 episode Almost Famous Podcast, She told host Ashley Iaconetti she was “shocked” by her ex’s comments.

“I’m actually kind of shocked,” she said. “Not just in your podcast… but even in what I heard the first night [of ‘The Bachelor’]. All this “I want someone authentic on and off camera” talk. As if choosing or feeling stronger feelings for other people somehow doesn’t make me authentic.”

“The Bachelor” airs Mondays at 8 p.m. Eastern Standard Time on ABC.
