Don’t hand The Bachelor over to Juan Pablo Galavis just yet.

Zak Waddell, the charmer who finished in fourth place on this season of The Bachelorette, would be the first choice of one person who knows him well:

Desiree Hartsock, The Bachelorette herself!

Recalling her experience with Zak, who she reunited with briefly on the Men Tell All special, Des said, “The biggest surprise came when he pulled out his guitar and sang to me.”

“It was a beautiful song that expressed exactly how he felt about the goodbye and moving on. I love that he always has something new to share and is vulnerable enough to express it.”


“He is so deserving of love. I would love to see him have the opportunity to choose from 25 suitable women to find it. Who’s with me on that?”

While Zak has stiff competition in Juan Pablo, as well as the other two runners-up this season (see The Bachelorette spoilers for the scoop on that), he’s a strong candidate.
