Kat Izzo shares thoughts on Zach Shallcross
Kat Izzo was liked by Bachelor Nation and many thought she may be the one to go all the way. However, it wasn’t meant to be. Zach Shallcross sent her home Monday night which made her finish fifth in his season of The Bachelor. Now that she is not in the running for a hometown date anymore, Kat is opening up about how she really felt about Zach.
US Weekly shared what Kat had to say. Throughout the process, she felt confident that Zach was her person. While she admits things seemed a little off between her and Zach she didn’t expect to be sent home. Kat said she did feel blindsided. She said, “I did [feel blindsided]. I definitely could reflect on where my feelings were at in that moment, and they were feeling off. But I wasn’t thinking that that was gonna be something that overtook our relationship.” Kat continued, “We had one hard week, but we also had five good weeks. So I thought that was going to be something to show my family that like, ‘Yeah, sometimes we’re not perfect. Sometimes we struggle. But he’s wanting to love them through that.’ I was hoping that was going to be him. Unfortunately, it wasn’t. But it’s OK.”
Kat also said, “And even up until the point that we left, I was like, ‘What? You’re supposed to be my husband.’ But it’s OK! I mean, I never didn’t feel those feelings. Even when I was wanting to give up because it was hard, I was like, ‘Nope, this is my person at the end of this.’ I would never give up on it.”
Zach did care for her
Even with all that went down, Kat says she did find qualities in Zach that she will continue to look for out in the real world. She loved his goofy attitude and his presence. It sounds like Kat has no regrets about the time she shared with Zach even with some added drama with the other women.
Remember, Kat rubbed some of the women the wrong way when she pulled Zach away for a private moment before his one on one with Charity. Even with all that drama, she was still in it for the long haul.
Zach shared that it was hard to let Kat go. He mentioned their feelings early on were very strong. However, in the end, he just felt stronger feelings for his now final four ladies. Those final four are Charity Lawson, Ariel Frenkel, Gabi Elnicki and Kaity Biggar. Next week fans will see these four ladies take Zach home to meet their families.
