On the latest episode of “The Bachelor”, lead Zach Shallcross tested positive for COVID-19, meaning he had to conduct his cocktail party virtually as he could not come in close contact with anyone.
During the Zoom cocktail party, Greer Blizter, one of the remaining women fighting for Shallcross’s heart, spoke to him via iPad where she brought up when she had COVID-19 and how it affected her job.
“I had COVID at the end of the quarter during year-end, so it messed with my career in sales,” Blitzer, who works in sales, told Shallcross during their one-on-one time over Zoom. “I know how you feel missing out on things.”
Shallcross, however, took this as offensive, replying with “I think me missing out on finding a wife is slightly more important than your little sales problems.”
Blizter tried to explain how she did not mean any harm by what she said, only trying to relate and understand how he must be feeling right now, but Shallcross seemingly did not want to hear her explaination. The conversation did not end on a good note, and Blizter thought she would be sent home, however, Shallcross did give Blitzer a rose at the ceremony, keeping her around for at least one more week.

Though nothing has been confirmed, the words are clearly related to what went down on the latest episode of the reality television show as many feel Shallcross “minimized” Blitzer’s job and situation.
Fans Stand Up For Greer Blitzer
Fans instantly took to the comments section of Blitzer’s post, standing up for her.
“My heart broke for you when he minimized your experience. That was uncalled for and I hope you receive an apology,” one fan wrote as another chimed in, “💯 you are a queen & you didn’t deserve to feel the way you felt in that moment. NEVER apologize for being you.”
One of Blitzer’s fans commented on the post, “Watching that was disgusting. He should have NEVER made you feel that way. You are such a girl boss!! 🤍.”
Another fan hopes that Shallcross did not choose Blitzer in the end as they say she deserves better. “You dodged a bullet with Zach- you could do soooo much better than him. He is a cheesy, annoying, pretentious, kinda gay seeming, tool. Hope you find your dream guy!,” they commented.
While another wants to see her as the next lead on “The Bachelorette” as they wrote, “Women who care about their career make great Bachelorettes 👀🌹.”
And lastly, one of her followers wrote, “I’m glad you know your worth and take pride in your career. You did not deserve to be belittled and dismissed like that. You were simply trying to empathize.”
