Zach Shallcross responds to fans and critics who call him the ‘boring Bachelor’: ‘I think fans are gonna love it’

ABC debuted Season 27 of The Bachelor on Monday night, which already has fans and critics alike dubbing new Bachelor Zach Shallcross the ‘boring Bachelor.’

The 26-year-old Shallcross already seriously slashed the field of 30 women vying for his heart, sending home 10 women on the first night, the most in 12 years.

Despite the massive eliminations, Rolling Stone critic Andrea Marks said she fell asleep during the premiere, with Shallcross responding to claims that he’s boring in a new interview with The Hollywood Reporter posted after the premiere.

When asked what he’s excited for fans to see as this season unfolds, he thinks fans will be ‘pleasantly surprised.’

‘Fans are going to be pleasantly surprised because right now, probably the No. 1 concern is, “OK, it’s this boring Bachelor, and there’s going to be no drama,”‘ he began.

‘The reality is, if you are someone that likes the show because you want people to find true love and an actual focus on what it’s supposed to be about — not about acting, not about this and that — then I think fans are gonna love it,’ he added.

‘If you’re into the unnecessary drama and stuff that’s just like ridiculous and doesn’t make sense, then yeah, maybe I’m not the guy for you. But I think what I’m really excited for is everyone to see the personalities of everyone involved because that was not necessarily something included in The Bachelorette,’ he added. 

Shallcross continued, ‘People don’t know necessarily who I am, and on this season, you’re going to see all of me. It’s the good, the bad, the goofy — the side that hasn’t really been shown before. That’s what I’m excited for people to see.’

The reality star makes a living as a Senior Cloud Technology Account Executive for Oracle though he also has a celebrity connection: his uncle is actor Patrick Warburton (Seinfeld).

When asked if his famous uncle had any advice for him going into his season, Shallcross said he did have some tips.

‘Uncle Pat has given me some advice. Most important, he’s always supported [me] because he knows how overwhelming being on TV can be,’ Shallcross said. 

‘But he’s just always said, “Hey, keep a level head. Don’t let what the people say about you dictate how you feel about yourself.” So that’s been the most important thing,’ he said.
