Everything's coming up roses because tonight you can watch The Bachelor 2023 online. Zach Shallcross is in the spotlight in The Bachelor season 27, after previously vying for Rachel Recchia's heart on her dual season of The Bachelorette with Gabby Windey. 

The 26-year-old tech executive, who currently lives in Austin, self-eliminated during the fantasy suite dates, but now will have 30 women hoping to earn his love — and the final rose.

The Bachelor 2023 premieres today (Monday, Jan. 23) at 8 p.m. ET/PT on ABC. Episodes stream next day on Hulu. 

Zach's journey will begin at the now-iconic mansion in Los Angeles, then move on to destinations in the U.S. and across the world. Fans can expect plenty of D-R-A-M-A, since that's what The Bachelor franchise has perfected.
