Does Zac get picked by Tayshia?

Zac C, however, will ultimately come out on top as the winner of the show and Tayshia’s apparent new fiancé.

According to the spoiler king, Brendan will choose to leave, and he won’t get a hometown date.

He wrote that the reason for his departure has to do with his last relationship.

Steve writes: “As I reported a few weeks ago, Brendan’s divorce was finalized just over a year ago, and apparently that played a big role in why he left,” he explained. “Guess he just wasn’t ready to jump into another relationship.”

Apparently, Tayshia’s first few nights as The Bachelorette are “lackluster,” but the season will pick up with plenty of drama and twists and “end unconventionally.

Did he used to be a drug addict?

Zac was once an addict and was hooked on painkillers and alcohol as early as high school.

During a forum at Alvernia University put together by Caron Treatment Centers and Alvernia and Berks County Probation Office, Zac revealed he struggled with abuse as a teen.

“Don’t let this suit fool you,” he said to the audience in 2014, “I am a degenerate alcoholic and drug addict.” 

He went on to reveal he initially struggled with Oxycontin, morphine and nitrous oxide that eventuated into crack and heroin.

Playing three sports in high school, he hid his drug abuse behind his athletic “front.”

Has Zac C been married before? 

Although not much is known about his ex-wife, the 36-year-old was allegedly married at the height of his drug abuse.

In his university forum speech, he revealed he was hooked on Oxycontin leading up to his honeymoon.

“I have got to leave the country for 10 days and for a guy with a serious, serious drug problem, that’s not cool,” he said.

It’s unknown if Zac’s former drug issues affected the breakdown of his marriage, but it is anticipated he may touch on it more as the show goes on.

Why did he get arrested?

Zac C was arrested for possession of drugs and driving under the influence in his early 20s.

“An eight-month drug binge in which he shot heroin intravenously, smoked crack and did ‘whippets’ – inhaling bursts of nitrous oxide for a brief high – ended with his arrest for possession of crack and driving while intoxicated,” the Reading Eagle published in an article about him.

He credited Caron Treatment Centers, one of the organizations which organized the forum he spoke at for helping him, saying “I was proudly discharged without taking any medications.”

Although Zac C remains clean, the fear of relapse still exists in his mind.

“For whatever reason lately, you’re seeing guys of 10, 15, 20 years going back out which is scary to me, but a helpful reminder.”

What does he do for work?

Zac is an addiction specialist.

In 2017, he founded a a recovery program called Release Recovery that focused on helping reintegrate people back into the world after rehab, which, according to his ABC bio, “has become his life’s purpose.”

He says he strives to get recovering addicts to see that the world can be enjoyed sober.
