- Kaity Biggar was a contestant on season 27 of ‘The Bachelor’ with Zach Shallcross.
- Zach proposed to Kaity during the show’s finale and gave her his final rose.
- Kaity works as an ER Nurse in Austin, Texas.
Zach Shallcross made his final decision on the March 27 episode of The Bachelor when he proposed to Kaity Biggar, who was 28 at the time of filming, after dumping Gabi Elnicki. He popped the question with a stunning, oval-shaped ring, and Kaity happily accepted. After the proposal aired, the two appeared on After the Final Rose and revealed that they’re still together, with plans to move in together over the summer.
Before the finale, Kaity and Zach spent the night together in the fantasy suite during the March 20 episode, but it wasn’t without some drama first. Kaity was upset when Zach told her that he had slept with another one of the women that week. While he was just trying to be upfront and honest, she didn’t need to hear what he was doing during his private time with the other ladies. However, they were able to get through it, and Kaity accepted a rose from Zach at the end of the episode.
Zach and Kaity hit it off from the very beginning. To begin with, they both live in Austin, Texas, so there was an immediate connection in that sense. Kaity also had the second one-on-one date of the season, and got to spend the night with Zach in a museum on the date. She had a second one-on-one ahead of hometowns, which elevated her relationship with Zach even further. Then, on her hometown date, Kaity told Zach she was falling in love with him. Learn more about her below.
1. What Does Kaity Do?
Kaity works as an ER nurse in Austin, Texas, according to her ABC bio. On Instagram, she refers to herself as a “travel nurse.” Kaity graduated from nursing school at Laurentian University in Ontario, Canada in June 2019. She documented her graduation on Instagram with a photo of herself in cap and gown with the caption, “Nursing school survivor.”
2. Where Is Kaity From?
Kaity currently lives in Austin, Texas, but she is from Toronto, Ontario. In her Instagram bio, she lists both locations. She appears to have moved to Texas in 2022, as she captioned a series of photos from Austin on Instagram with, “2966.4 km later, I’m finally home.”
3. Kaity Was A Figure Skater
Kaity “grew up figure skating,” according to her ABC Bio. For Halloween in 2016, she even paid tribute to her figure skating roots with a Blades of Glory Halloween costume, which she documented on Instagram.
4. Kaity Wants A Family
Kaity is looking for love on The Bachelor, but she’s also hoping to find the perfect man to start a family with. “Kaity can’t wait to start a family and said that if a man doesn’t want kids, that would be a dealbreaker for her,” her bio reveals. Luckily, Zach has also been open about the fact that he wants kids.
5. What Happened With Kaity’s Dad?
Throughout her time on The Bachelor, Kaity has opened up to Zach about not having a solid father figure in her life. Her biological father left when she was just four years old. Her mother’s subsequent boyfriend then became the man she looked up to in the following years, but he also left when she was a teenager. “With the exception of my brother, every man in my life has failed me,” Kaity admitted at one point. She also told Zach that she stayed in her last relationship — which she described as “pure toxicity” — for longer than she “should have” because she didn’t want to lose another man in her life.Click to Subscribe to Get Our Free HollywoodLife Daily Newsletter to get the hottest celeb news.
