Jennifer also brought up the drama between himself and his ex, Rachel Recchia, the co-Bachelorette who famously said on the show that she thought he was too young to get married. (Rachel is only 4 months older than Zach, who was 25 when the show was filmed.)
When JHud asked him if he had a message for Rachel, he responded, “I was 25 at the time. What I have to say is I’m 26.”
At the “After the Final Rose” special — where he was announced as the next “Bachelor” — Zach said he had trouble remembering the names of the contestants he met. In fact, he said he was 0 for 5!
Despite this, Zach is committed to doing a better job, and plans on drinking lots of caffeine during those ridiculously long rose ceremonies. Zach told Jennifer they can last through the night until 8 a.m.!
