Who is Zach Shallcross?

Zach Shallcross was born on July 31, 1996, in Fullerton, California, to Chapman and Megan Shallcross. Payton and Sammy are his two sisters. Although he presently resides in Austin, he will always have a special place in his heart for California. 'The Bachelorette' candidate stands 6 feet 4 inches tall. He enjoys being outside, and his favorite pastimes include sailing and exploring his surroundings. Spending time outside is not only enjoyable, but it also allows Zach to refuel. He likes to go to the beach and listen to music. For two years, he played guitar in a rock band and mixed and produced songs under the alias Verzacky. He claims to be a descendant of Abraham Lincoln, according to

Zach attended California Polytechnic State University, where he played football. He went on to play collegiate football for five years at California Polytechnic State University-San Luis Obispo. He earned a Bachelor of Business Administration degree in 2019. According to his LinkedIn, he is a senior cloud technology account executive with Oracle in Austin, where he has been for over two years. For more than two years, the Anaheim Hills, California native served as a supervisor at The California Mid-State Fair in Paso Robles and for more than three years as a Sales Operations Assistant at Gavel Group in Lake Forest, California.

In addition to living in various regions of the country, Zach has had the opportunity to travel extensively throughout the years. In 2019, he got the opportunity to travel to Thailand. He'll almost certainly be adding additional stamps to his passport in the coming years.

Zach may lack expertise in the entertainment sector, but he is linked to someone who does. Patrick Warburton, a well-known actor, is his uncle. Patrick has been in the business for 30 years and has approximately 200 acting credits to his name. As per numerous of Zach's Instagram postings, he has a tight bond with his uncle.


Zach, according to his ABC profile, is a classic romantic. He adores his mother, his dogs, and football, but he says there is plenty of love to go around! He's charming, sociable, and has a big heart that he's eager to share with the perfect lady for the rest of his life. Zach's ideal lady is empathetic, gentle, and ready for romance, since Zach is eager to apply it liberally. He enjoys planning thoughtful surprises for his lover, and nothing makes him happier than seeing the expression of delight on his partner's face when his thoughtful presents are appreciated. Zach is determined to discover a love that will culminate in marriage, so whatever huge romantic gesture it takes to get there, he is willing to do it!

Some cast members on this season of 'The Bachelorette' have an established web presence. Zach, on the other hand, has a little online following. He currently has about 2500 Instagram followers. However, once the season begins, there's little question that Zach's fan base will increase enormously - especially if he ends up making it far.

The first episode of 'The Bachelorette' will air on ABC on Monday, July 11 at 8 pm. The next day, episodes are available to view on and Hulu.
