Who is Kylee Russell from ‘The Bachelor’ 2023 with Zach Shallcross?

Like some fans, Kylee enjoys the sweet and salty snack of M&M’s mixed in with her buttery popcorn. Instead of crushing hard on a celebrity or Hollywood actor, her all-time number one crush happens to be the San Francisco 49ers American football quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo. Fans can see why Kylee would be smitten with Zach, seeing as he is also tall and ruggedly handsome.

When finding love on The Bachelor 2023, Kylee wants the fairytale romance that ends with a husband and future family. According to her ABC bio, “Kylee is ready for the soccer mom life, so hopefully, Zach is on the same page! Kylee admits that she falls in love hard and fast, so time will tell if this hopeless romantic will be able to find her soul mate in Zach.”

When it comes to her perfect date, Kylee explained in a The Bachelor Twitter video that she is a foodie. She loves to try “all of the new restaurants.” They say the best way to a man’s heart is through his stomach.

How old is Kylee Russell, and what does she do for a living?

Like Zach, Kylee is also on the younger side, being 25 years old while on The Bachelor 2023. She currently resides in Charlotte, North Carolina, and is better known as a former NBA dancer for the Charlotte Hornets. But her current career is in the medical field as a registered nurse working in the postpartum unit.

Her bio explains, “She is passionate about helping new mothers and can’t wait to have a baby of her own ASAP.” As Zach has expressed his desire to settle down since his time on The Bachelorette, this aspect of Kylee’s future desires may appeal to him.

Her possible LinkedIn profile reveals she graduated with a degree from Wingate University in 2021. She currently works in the Mother Baby Postpartum unit at Atrium Health Cabarrus. But Kylee has also been involved in pageant work as Miss Cornelius USA.
