Zak Waddell made his The Bachelorette Season 9 debut by exposing his man parts to a fleet of ABC cameramen, but there is so much more to this guy than his danger zone.

Fans got a sneak peek at Zak's sensitive side when he gifted Desiree Hartsock that weird, dirty journal wrapped in foam in Season 9 Episode 2, and things only get better and better in their relationship from here on out. But how far does Zak make it in the race to win Desiree's heart? Read on, brave souls — and remember: spoiler alert!

Not only does Zak stick around for Desiree's nomadic adventures in Atlantic City, Munich, Barcelona, and Portugal, he ends up in Des' final four — and you know what that means! Zak treats Des to a hometown date in Dallas, Texas (which was filmed on April 19 and will air on July 15)! This southern gent manages to impress Desiree to no end. Except, well, there is an end coming.

Poor Zak is voted off before the Island (like, literally), right before Des and her boyfriends arrive in the Caribbean, which means he isn't a contender for her final rose. Tragic, we know, but hopefully Zak will land on his feet...on the set of ABC's The Bachelor.

Curious to find out who wins Desiree's heart? Head over here to be spoiled silly!
