Then and Now:

I always thought he had an elf-like quality to him:

Goofing around while shopping:

Zak has shared a lot of fun and quirky pics! Here are my favorites, but follow him on Facebook for more.

Here is the video of Zak meeting Des out of the limo:

From his Official ABC.com bio:

    What do you hope to get out of participating in this television show?
    To pursue, wholeheartedly, someone amazing. I intend on showing that person the passion/excitement I have for life/love and hope she shares in that passion.

    What is the most romantic present you have ever given? Why?
    It definitely wasn’t that robot vacuum. Messed up on that one.

    What does being married mean to you?
    Two individuals coming together out of mutual fascination for each other, and supporting each other’s freedom toward personal happiness as one.

    What is your favorite thing to do with your mom?
    Travel to small towns and go antique shopping for odd things. I got a wooden flying pig last month in Gruene, Texas.

    If you could have one superpower, what would it be and why? How would you use it?
    I would be able to open pistachios telepathically… especially the tough ones that just don’t want to pry open.

    Excerpts from his ABC questionnaire (click to enlarge!):

With his mum:

Love this fun video, he makes me smile (well I am a sucker for grown men behaving like 5 year olds and not taking themselves too seriously!)
