‘The Bachelor' Season 27 on ABC: Who is Aly Jacobs? Healthcare professional went to Beyonce’s high school
The upcoming season of ABC's ‘The Bachelor’ will feature Zach Shallcross as the new leading man. The California native was named the new Bachelor during the 'Bachelorette After the Final Rose' special that aired in September 2022. According to his 'Bachelorette' bio, Shallcross is an "old-fashioned romantic" who is looking for someone to settle down with. He wants to find his best friend and fall in love, and is ready to make grand romantic gestures to get there.
In the special, Shallcross met five of the women who will compete to win his heart on the upcoming season. One of the women, New Jersey resident Brianna, took a selfie with "Prince Charming" in front of the Bachelor Mansion. Her touching move won over him and the rest of America, earning Brianna the very first rose of the season. This means she will be safe from elimination on the first night of the show. Let's take a look at contestant Alyssa "Aly" Jacobs.
Who is Alyssa Jacobs?
Jacobs is a Healthcare Strategist based in Atlanta. She is a true Southern beauty with a charming smile and a personality to match. As a hopeless romantic, she has previously ended relationships because her partners were not ready for serious commitment. She is a successful professional, equally passionate about her career in healthcare and, quite surprisingly, her love for Disneyland.
Jacobs is a dog lover and her goldendoodle, Texas, is an important part of her life. She has a unique hobby of collecting porcelain dolls and went to the same high school as Beyonce. In her free time, she enjoys broccolini, which is somewhat surprising considering that she despised broccoli.
According to Reality Steve, Shallcross was on a one-on-one wine-tasting date with Jacobs in the Santa Barbara vineyards, in October, 2022. Jacobs is a seasoned professional with a diverse background in accounting, business, and strategy. She is an MBA holder from Louisiana State University and a Bachelor of Science in Accounting and minor in Computer Information Systems from Northwestern State University. Her educational background and experience have cultivated her analytical skills to tell stories with numbers and figures, and present her findings in a meaningful way.
Currently, she is working as a project manager at Children's Healthcare of Atlanta, Georgia, and leading the diversity, equity and inclusion initiative. A strategic thinker, she serves as a thought partner for system leadership, clearly identifying and articulating the problems that need to be solved and providing overall structure to keep key stakeholders informed.
Jacobs has a strong experience in providing ongoing support, ensuring system strategic plans are successfully conceptualized, delivered, and monitored and also anticipate, identify, and escalate any roadblocks or threats to a plan's completion or implementation in order to drive progress toward solutions. She has two years os experience working as a senior audit associate at KPMG, where she had a full-time role, and was based in Atlanta.
Consdering her range of skills and overall background, Jacobs will surely be someone to watch out for in the upcoming season of ‘The Bachelor.’ Season 27 will premiere on ABC on January 23 at 8 pm ET.
