Greer Blitzer stirred up controversy on Zach Shallcrosss’s season of “The Bachelor”. Shallcross had to conduct his cocktail party virtually one week due to the fact that he tested positive for COVID-19.
Blitzer asked how he was feeling before proceeding to try and relate to his situation as she explained she contracted COVID-19 at the end of a quarter, resulting in her falling behind and missing out on things.
“I had COVID at the end of the quarter during year-end, so it messed with my career in sales,” Blitzer, who works as a medical sales rep, told Shallcross during their one-on-one time. “I know how you feel missing out on things.”
Shallcross did not hold back his feelings after hearing Blitzer say this, replying with “I think me missing out on finding a wife is slightly more important than your little sales problems.”
The conversation did not end on a good note, though, Shallcross did give Blitzer a rose at the ceremony, keeping her around for at least one more week. However, she was then eliminated.
