The Bachelor season 27 will feature 30 women as they try their best to woo Zach Shallcross. Catherine Cat Wong, a dancer from New York City who is 26 years old, will be one of the candidates for the show.

Her highlights further suggest that the Cats worked behind the scenes during the 2018 NFL Draft in Dallas, as well as the NBA All-Star weekend in Charlotte, North Carolina, the same year.

Her ABC bio states:

"Cat loves living in New York City, is passionate about dancing and enjoys a picnic in the park. Cheese and crackers in Central Park with Cat? Sounds like a dreamy one-on-one date to us! Cat is ready to find someone who accepts her for who she is and will make her a priority. Cat believes true love is within reach, and we hope she’s right"

Meet Zach Shallcross

Zach Shallcross is 26 years old and a tech executive from Anaheim Hills, California. The family man hopes to find love just like what his parents share. They have been married for 30 years and have shown him what true love looks like.

Zach previously appeared on Gabby and Rachel’s season of The Bachelorette, where he bonded well with Rachel. However, since he felt that she wasn’t the one for him since his age made her unsure if he was ready for marriage, he self-eliminated from the show.
