The Bachelor: Zach Shallcross sends home Madison Johnson BEFORE rose ceremony on season premiere


Zach Shallcross shockingly sent home contestant Madison Johnson before the first rose ceremony on Monday’s season 27 premiere of The Bachelor on ABC.

Madison, 26, a business owner from Fargo, North Dakota, was determined to get a kiss from Zach, but was distraught when it didn’t seem that he had feelings for her. 

She spent time chatting with Zach, 26, a tech executive from Nashville, before the rose ceremony, but then became upset when she saw him talking to other women.

‘I’ll fight for the chance to talk to Zach again especially if it means to get a kiss from him,’ Madison said in a confessional.

Madison interrupted Zach when he was talking to another woman. Eventually, Zach reached over and gave her a quick kiss.

‘The kiss was subpar; it was literally a peck,’ Madison said in a confessional.

‘Madison, I think she’s very sweet, but I don’t know if I was feeling that kiss,’ Zach said. ‘Didn’t feel right. The kiss sat wrong with me.’

Madison started sobbing in a confessional.

‘I want to be wanted,’ Madison said crying to one of the other women. ‘It’s so embarrassing. It’s so f***ing embarrassing.’

Kimberly Gutierrez, 30, a hospitality manager from Los Angeles, encouraged her to hold it together.

‘Your makeup is still on fleek,’ Kimberly said.

Madison walked outside to confront Zach while he was talking to host Jesse Palmer, 44, after saying she was heartbroken he gave the first impression rose to someone else.

‘I just want to make sure that you want me on this journey,’ Madison said.

Zach told her that he appreciated her coming to him and thanked her for being there.

‘My heart wasn’t feeling it and I never want to force that and I don’t want to put you through something that’s not real because I know what it feels like,’ Zach said. ‘Because I know what it feels like to be led on, and I don’t want that for you.’

Zach told her he didn’t see a future for them. Madison then walked away down the street crying and got into a waiting van.

‘I cannot believe that I gave up my life for him,’ Madison said. ‘I know what I deserve and it’s not that.’

Zach went inside and explained to the other women about letting Madison leave.

‘I’m really following my heart with this and making those tough decisions, but it’s in the name of love,’ Zach said in a confessional.

Before the 30 contestants arrived at the mansion, former The Bachelor star Sean Lowe, 39, appeared on the show to give Zach advice on navigating the season. 

Sean said he wouldn’t have picked Catherine Lowe, 36, as his wife from the start. He said he didn’t see her as his wife until midway through.

‘If you are going to have a long healthy marriage, I think you are going to have to marry your best friend,’ Sean said.

Zach said he was nervous, but excited to meet the women. Brianna Thorbourne, 24, from Jersey City who already received a first America’s impression rose, was the only one who already knew she was safe.

‘I can’t wait to meet the ladies,’ Zach said.

Jessica ‘Jess’ Girod, 23, an e-commerce coordinator from Winter Springs, Florida, was the first contestant to meet Zach. He told her she looked beautiful.

The women tried to make an impression on Zach. Davia Bunch, 25, a marketing manager from Charlestown, SC, brought a bottle of champagne for them to toast to the start of something new. Gabriella ‘Gabi’ Elnicki, 25, an account executive from Pittsford, Vermont, brought him maple syrup for him to drink. 

Greer Blitzer, 24, a medical sales rep from Houston, brought him a cup of coffee all the way from New York. 

Bailey Brown, 27, an executive recruiter from Nashville, wore a name tag so he would remember her name and Zach leaned in and kissed her.

‘I’m literally on cloud nine I’m so excited,’ Bailey said in a confessional.

‘Gorgeous eyes,’ Zach said as she walked away. ‘There’s a little bit of a spark there and I want her to know that I felt that spark.’

Mercedes Northup, 24, a pig farmer from Bloomfield, Virginia, brought her pig Henry to meet Zach.

A party bus arrived with the music blaring and Christina Mandrell, 26, a content creator from Nashville who has a five-year-old daughter and was also country singer Barbara Mandrell’s niece, got off the bus.

‘I like to party,’ Christina said when she got inside to the other women.

Brianna Thorbourne, 24, an entrepreneur from Jersey City, New Jersey, was the last to arrive. She carried with her the first impression rose America that was given to her on the night it was announced that Zach was the Bachelor .

‘I want you to know I’m not here for the roses,’ Brianna said. ‘I’m here for your heart.’

Jesse told Zach that he would also be handing out his own first impression to one of the women.

Zach walked into the mansion and some of the women started screaming.

‘I’m freaking out right now,’ Zach said. ‘You are all so incredible and beautiful. Holy f*** I should not be cussing right now, I’m freaking out.’

Christina brought Zach onto her party bus to talk and gave him a compatibility questionnaire.

‘I feel like why waste time, let’s see if we’re compatible,’ Christina said.

The final question was if he would give her a kiss and he said yes and the two of them made out. Madison and some of the other women got on the bus. They started dancing and drinking champagne straight from the bottle.

The women worried about not having enough time to spend with Zach. Zach sat down with Charity to talk about her work.

‘Solid, solid kiss there,’ Charity said.

Zach later also kissed Jess.

‘I felt like a zing with you and it just felt so real,’ Greer said.

Greer accepted the rose and they kissed.
