He told host Jesse Palmer:

“A major concern was my age and she wasn’t sure if I was ready to commit because I’m 25.” while pointing out that Recchia is 26. 

After the ending of the season wrapped, Zach opened up to PEOPLE. He said:

“I don’t think that there’s anything where there’s an age limit on when you decide you want to fall in love and get married. If you are ready and you feel well equipped with yourself, you love yourself, you trust yourself and you want to share that with someone else, it doesn’t matter how old you are.”

Moreover, prior to The premiere, Zach revealed that it is the most emotional season of the show ever. He revealed:

“It might not be the most dramatic season, but it’s the most emotional season that they’ve ever had. But that’s not to say that this season will not have some drama. There’s no shortage of drama.”
