Watch: Bachelor Superfan Melanie Lynskey Calls Out Zach Shallcross

Melanie Lynskey is calling out Zach Shallcross for putting out. 

As a tried and true member of Bachelor Nation, the Yellowjackets star did not mince words when asked about Zach's behavior during the March 20 Fantasy Suites episode of The Bachelor—in which Zach broke his "no sex" rule by sleeping with contestant Gabi Elnicki

"I think he made a mistake," Melanie exclusively told E! News at the Yellowjackets season two premiere March 22. "I'm going to come out and say that. If there was any chance you were going to have sex with someone in the Fantasy Suite, don't lay down the law and say, ‘This is a thing that's not happening,' if it was possible at all. That's all I think. People's feelings are going to get hurt."

Indeed, after sleeping with Gabi, Zach told contestant Kaity Biggar about failing to live up to the standard he set for himself—which made Kaity emotional and effectively ruined their day together.

"I felt for Kaity. She's so sweet," Melanie continued. "She had that date where she was just bummed out. No one wants that."

In happier news, Melanie is also a massive Real Housewives fan and has recently found herself enamored with a certain wind chime admirer.

"I've been really impressed with [Real Housewives of Beverly Hills]' Dorit [Kemsley]," Melanie revealed. "She's been going through a lot."

In October 2021, Dorit was the victim of a home invasion, during which she was allegedly pushed to the ground by burglars who threatened to "kill her."

"It's really heartbreaking," Melanie said of Dorit's ordeal. "She was so raw last season. Everything was stripped away and she was just processing stuff in real time. It felt very vulnerable."
