A Guide To All Of Zach Shallcross' Bachelor Filming Locations
Pack your bags and follow his travels around the world.
Arriving at the iconic Bachelor mansion as ABC’s newest lead was a “surreal” experience for Zach Shallcross. Sure, the 26-year-old tech executive had already been there to kick off Gabby Windey and Rachel Recchia’s season of The Bachelorette not so long ago, but stepping into the spotlight at the franchise’s most recognized filming location made the dreamlike experience a reality. “I don’t know when it really will [sink in],” Zach explained to Entertainment Tonight shortly before 30 eligible women arrived via limo (or party bus) to vie for his heart. “It still feels so surreal and just kind of like a dream, but I’m just, like, excited for it, just want to start it already. It’s the anticipation... I’m pinching myself every day.”
But that was only the beginning of Zach’s Bachelor journey, which will see him and several of his contestants traveling far beyond Bachelor Mansion in Agoura Hills, California — which is currently available to rent on Airbnb for just over $23,000 per night. Of course, the Season 27 lead’s main focus was to find a wife, but Bachelor alum Sean Lowe, who made an appearance in the premiere, wanted to make sure his successor knew that there are still some other (right) reasons to approach the role.
“I know we’re filming a TV show and the goal is to find love, but I also wanted to tell him that it’s okay if that doesn’t happen,” Lowe explained on the Bachelor Happy Hour podcast. “I wanted Zach to know to not make this harder than it needs to be. If you can just relax and have fun with it, it’s an amazing opportunity to travel the world and do things you would never do otherwise. It’s so much fun, so just enjoy every moment of it.”
And travel the world, he did, jetting off on an international tour of love. Here are all the locations he and the women visited on The Bachelor this season.
On Oct. 11, Reality Steve tweeted a video of Zach walking on the beach in the Bahamas “doing one of those “walk on the sand looking pensive” shots,” ahead of what he reported to be the season’s fourth rose ceremony. Indeed, the island was the group’s first stop after departing Bachelor Mansion.
One of the easiest locations to identify in the Season 27 trailer was the United Kingdom, since eleven of the women were shown standing on London’s Tower Bridge waving and shouting Zach’s name. Zach’s COVID diagnosis led to the franchise’s first virtual rose ceremony, which took place here.
Prior to the episode airing, Life & Style shared photos from Zach’s one-on-one date with Charity Lawson in Tallinn, Estonia, on Oct. 22, showing them sharing some romantic PDAs while they went sightseeing and took a carriage ride around the capital city. This is where Zach handed out his sixth round of roses to the remaining women.
The Bachelor trailer also offered sweeping views of Budapest, Hungary, where Zach can be seen on a date with Kaitlyn “Kaity” Biggar. Ahead of the seventh rose ceremony, the duo visited Fisherman’s Bastion, a 19th-century lookout tower that claims to offer the city’s best panoramic views.
Zach’s Hometown Dates
After returning stateside, Zach went on four hometown dates to Vermont (with Gabi Elnicki), New York City (with Ariel Frenkel), Columbus, Georgia (with Charity), and Austin, Texas (with Kaity).
Zach’s overnights with his final three women took place in Krabi, Thailand, a location that ABC teased will include horseback riding on the beach. The March 20 episode shows the group staying at the five-star Sofitel Krabi Phokeethra resort, which eagle-eyed viewers might notice includes an on-site Thai and Indian restaurant called the White Lotus. The Fantasy Suite dates might prove to be as dramatic as the plot of the similarly named hit HBO series, too.
