The Bachelor is back for another season, with its typical mix of tears, sadness, love, and controversy. Zach Shallcross from The Bachelorette season 19 will star in the next season as he starts on a mission to find a bride and settle down. Brooklyn Willie from Oklahoma is one of the 30 ladies competing for his affection. The rodeo racer and Oklahoma State University graduate is 25 years old. The new season will air on ABC on Monday, January 23, at 8 p.m. ET.
Meet Brooklyn Willie before she appears on The Bachelor.
Brooklyn Willie, a “rodeo country girl” looking for love, is one of the 30 suitors expected to feature on the show’s forthcoming season. The 25-year-old is a two-stepping pro and a graduate of Oklahoma State University, where she was a member of the OKState Rodeo Team. The season 27 cast member developed her enthusiasm for horse barrel racing at the age of 13 and went on to study animal science. Her ultimate ambition in life is to become a professional rodeo cowgirl while training horses. She does, however, work as a lab designer for an oral surgery clinic. Brooklyn designs teeth for life-changing operations as part of her present employment.
Her ABC bio is as follows:
“Brooklyn hasn’t had the smoothest dating history, so she’s eager for a new beginning with the Bachelor. Will Zach be the ideal cowboy for this carefree cowgirl? The only way to know is to wait and see.”
While Zach is new to most of the ladies in the forthcoming season, Brooklyn is one of four who met him before on The Bachelorette: After the Final Rose. Bailey, Brianna, Christina, and Cat were among the other guests on the show. Aly, Anastasia, Ariel, Rebecca, Cara, Charity, Davia, Gabriella, Geneive, Greer, Holland, Jessica, Kaitlyn, Katherine, Kimberly, Kylee, Chandralekha, Madison, Mercedes, Olivia L, Olivia M, Sonia, Vanessa, Victoria J, and Viktoria E will join them in season 27.
Get to know Zach Shallcross.
Zach previously participated in The Bachelorette in season 19 and is an eligible Bachelor for the following season. He seemed to have a “rock-solid” relationship with Rachel throughout his time on the program, but he unexpectedly quit the show after being in the Fantasy Suite with her. Rachel was concerned about Zach being too young, despite the fact that she is just a year older; yet, her fears appeared to terrify him, leading to his abrupt leave.
Zach is a family guy who is motivated by his parents’ love throughout the last 30 years. According to ABC, he is a charming 26-year-old IT executive from California. It went on to say:
“He aspires to discover a love that reflects the ideal they have set for him, and he intends to keep them in mind while he searches for a life mate. Home is where the heart is, and with the Bachelor house not far away, Shallcross is ready to return to Southern California.”
