Over Halloween weekend, several of the guys from Season 9 of The Bachelorette guys descended on Zak Waddell’s Texas life to party. But while it was great to see Drew Kenney, Kasey Stewart, Zack Kalter, Ben Scott, and Season 17 Bachelor gal AshLee Frazier hanging tough, there was one person we were especially focused on: Zak W’s new girlfriend!

Zack K posted an Instagram pic while the crew hung in Austin, and Zak’s brunette babe is tucked firmly in her man’s arms. So who is she? A source close to the couple tells Wetpaint Entertainment that she’s “just a normal girl from Fort Worth, Texas,” and not someone connected to the ABC franchise at all.

“He’s been seeing her for a while, and it’s going really great,” our source says of the lovebirds. Certainly, it looks like she’s getting close to his family, since his sister Carly posted another pic with the lovely lady.

Another source tells Wetpaint her name is Elizabeth, but he hasn’t said a word about her so far. Considering how happy Zak looks in the pics we’ve seen, we wish them both the best of luck. The Texas “fluid drilling engineer” was one of our favorite guys on Desiree’s season, and if he’s found love, we wish him all the love and red roses in the world!
