Zach Shallcross, ABC’s The Bachelor, is feeling uncertain as he heads into fantasy suites week. With three ladies still vying for his heart, he expressed his concerns about the potential heartbreak and complications that can arise when intimacy is involved. “I didn’t know what to expect for a week like fantasy suite week. You can’t ever imagine what it’s going to be,” he shared.

Despite the excitement and anticipation that comes with fantasy suites week, Zach is aware of the historical implications of this stage in the competition. He jokingly referred to it as “sex week,” acknowledging the pressure that comes with physical intimacy on the show. “In the past, once intimacy is involved, it adds a bunch of different elements to it and it adds additional heartbreak,” he added.

Zach’s primary concern seems to be avoiding any unnecessary hurt or messiness during this pivotal week. He shared his desire for this time to be meaningful and respectful, stating, “For me, I didn’t want this time to be muddied or messy having something that really can hurt someone.” This sentiment demonstrates Zach’s commitment to navigating the fantasy suites with caution and sensitivity towards his remaining suitors.

It remains to be seen which lady will ultimately capture his heart, but Zach’s willingness to prioritize emotional well-being over physical desires bodes well for his future relationships.
