Zach Shallcross captured the hearts of “The Bachelor” and “The Bachelorette” fans everywhere during his appearance on season 19 of “The Bachelorette” last year as he competed for the love of one of the bachelorettes, Rachel Recchia.

The 26-year-old tech executive made it all the way to hometowns and introduced Recchia to his family at their home in Anaheim Hills. Viewers also discovered that Shallcross is the nephew of actor Patrick Warburton, the guy who played Puddy on “Seinfeld” and numerous other characters in film and television shows. Uncle Patrick was also there to meet Recchia during the visit to the family home.

Alas, it wasn’t meant to be and Recchia broke Shallcross’ heart. But during the taping of the “After The Final Rose” episode last year, Shallcross was announced as the 27th bachelor. His season began airing on ABC on Monday night, Jan. 23, and he was looking slick in his fitted blue suit, but he had a total of 30 women show up to the Agoura Hills Bachelor Mansion to try to get his final rose.

“I still feel like this is a dream,” he said during the opening moments of the show. “I’m just really a that point in my life to settle down and find my wife.”
