Bachelor star Lekha Ravi slams Zach Shallcross as ‘vanilla & boring’ in real life after fans branded him ‘worst leading role ever’.
BACHELOR contestant Lekha Ravi has torn up Zach Shallcross amid ratings battles that are roiling the network.
The reality TV hope took to her Instagram feed to discuss her experience on the show and took several jabs at the current star.
Lekha shared a video of herself looking at the awkward moment arriving at the Bachelor mansion to fight for Zach’s heart.
In the clip, she appeared to lick it before saying, “I licked it, so it’s mine.”
They both laughed at the moment, but fans found the whole exchange awkward, and Lekha ended up being sent home.
Reflecting on her journey, she wrote, “My time on TV summed up…
“It was truly a dream come true for me to be selected for #TheBachelor and I want to thank @bachelorabc and the entire production crew and team for this incredible opportunity.
“Obviously things didn’t go quite as expected and I had no idea what I signed up for, but I took a chance and had faith and I’m glad you guys were able to see my personality and character shine through on screen – I did I have no regrets about it and am proud to have remained absolutely authentic and true to myself throughout this entire process.”
She then added: “Who cares if a guy who barely met me didn’t give me one [rose] – not in #boringbachenergy anyway.
“I’m grateful for the #BachelorNation community and the support I’ve received – connecting with you guys made the whole experience worthwhile so thank you all.”

Speaking directly to Zach, Lekha wrote, “@zachshallcross wishing you a journey of happiness and excitement and may we see a beautiful love story unfold for you.
“As for me, I believe everything always works out in my favor, and it was certainly God’s protection and diversion for the better.”
Zach has been getting some serious heat for his role as The Bachelor lately.
It was recently claimed that the producers were trying to make him seem “silly and funny”.
However, many fans say he is the “most boring bachelor ever”.
So far this season, Zach has enjoyed a “Bad B***h Energy” group date with Latto, done the griddy with a contestant, changed a baby’s diaper, and scooped meatballs into his mouth.
All of these things were done at the urging of the producers, according to a source close to the show.
“The producers make him seem more interesting than he really is. He’s a nice, genuine guy and a good person overall, but to be honest he’s just plain boring and boring,” an insider told The US Sun.
The insider revealed that the producers made him look “funnier and sillier” with the ladies.
“They gave him a great cut and made him look like God,” a source said.
The US Sun has learned that when casting Rachel Recchia’s ex, they wanted to choose someone who would have a similar season to Sean Lowe.
Sean, who is married to Catherine Giudici, appeared on The Bachelor season 8 and has previously appeared this season.
“They were very protective of him,” the source added. “They felt like they couldn’t give The Bachelor the villain role this season like they’ve done in previous seasons.”
However, that’s not all that goes on behind the scenes.
Zach’s season of The Bachelor premiered with the lowest premiere ratings of all time.
To make matters worse, a racism scandal surrounding frontrunner Greer Blitzer shook the show shortly before the premiere.
Speaking exclusively to The US Sun, a production source claimed that The Bachelor bosses are “crawling” because executives working at ABC are “not at all happy with the show.”
The premiere episode drew a record low of 2.96 million viewers, down from 3.54 million in the previous season starring Clayton Echard.
“Executives braced themselves for a low number of firsts, but it was even worse than they expected,” the insider said.
“If the numbers continue to drop, ABC will have no choice but to pull the plug at some point.”
The source went on to say that the show could either be canceled entirely or bumped onto a streaming platform, as was the case with Dancing with the Stars.
