When did Tayshia Adams become the Bachelorette?
On the November 17 episode of The Bachelorette, the suitors were left reeling as Clare decided she would much rather be with Dale than to continue dating the other men, and producers teased Tayshia's entrance.
Chris Harrison tells a sobbing Clare: "The path we're on, it doesn't end well for anybody. You've just blown up The Bachelorette."
She then tells him: "I just waited so long for this."
Chris Harrison tells the group of suitors looking to impress Clare: "We have never dealt with anything like this."
That's when the video cuts to Tayshia coming out a pool in a blazing red bikini.
Us Weekly appeared to confirm in August how Tayshia Adams was brought in to replace Clare, who was named as The Bachelorette in March.
Chris tells the remaining suitors who "wish to stay" that they are in for another surprise.
Tayshia is then seen stepping out of the limo in a gorgeous sequin copper dress as she takes over the season.
Who are Tayshia's final four choices?
After taking over Clare's suitors and adding in a few new men to the mix, Tayshia's top four were: Ben Smith, Zac Clark, Brendan Morais, and Ivan Hall.
Ben Smith, who lives in Venice, CA, is a military veteran who served in the Army and became a Ranger.
Smith is a coach at Deuce Gym, and also acts as a nutritional coach. He has a profile on the gym's YouTube page in which he talks about his background, his lead-up to becoming a part of the gym, and how it's become such an important part of his life.
In 2017, Zac C. co-founded a recovery program, Release Recovery, after putting his own party days behind him.
He's looking for an independent woman who knows her worth as "toughness and confidence are incredibly sexy to him" and "finding a woman whose entire life isn't wrapped up in their relationship is key."
According to a tweet penned by Reality Steve, Zac has been married once before.
Brendan’s father died when he was very young and he said to be very close with his family.
Although he briefly lived in Los Angeles, Brendan returned home to Massachusetts to be closer to his love ones and to work for his family roofing business.
According to Ivan’s Bachelorette bio, the 28-year-old is an aeronautical engineer who builds jets for the U.S. military in Dallas, Texas.
The profile also says he’s close with his mom and loves her Filipino cooking.
His bio also says he’s looking for someone who’s “not only beautiful and nurturing, but also smart and ambitious.”
Who does she end up with?
After meeting the families of her four finalists during their pseudo hometown dates, due to the pandemic, Tayshia felt like she found the one.
In the end, Tayshia chose frontrunner Zac Clark to spend the rest of her life and he reciprocated by getting down on one knee.
“I came here because I was supposed to meet you. And I came here because I was supposed to fall in love with you. I love you because you believe in me.”
The lovestruck Bachelorette responded, “I didn’t know if finding true love was possible. I know that I told you that I love you, but it’s more than that.'
"You have showed me that I deserve a love with a man who won’t run away.”
The two have not yet picked a wedding date but are enjoying living in New York City together.
In May, Tayshia opened up to Cosmopolitan about the status of her relationship with Zac saying, "It’s like a sleepover with your best friend, of course it is. New York has been such a joy to experience."
"It’s so different living there as opposed to visiting. It’s a different kind of magic. It’s been fun."
Zac does have Instagram, but mostly keeps a low profile on social media.
What happened to Clare Crawley?
Clare Crawley left The Bachelorette after filming 12 days of her season as she falls in love with ex-NFL contestant Dale Moss.
Dale got down on one knee and proposed to Clare – who said yes – with a massive Neil Lane diamond sparkler.
After leaving their Palm Springs resort together, the engaged couple shot intimate footage cooking together four days later.
According to reports, the production team "realized they had a problem on their hands" when sparks flew between the two.
Discussing the furor, Reality Steve claimed that producers "embraced" Clare's chemistry with Dale to use it as this season's "big twist" in light of the coronavirus pandemic limiting the show to one location.
The blogger said: "This was going to be a different, almost boring, season from the get go due to COVID, one location, no travel, etc."
"So instead of fighting Clare on this, they embraced it, and they’re using it as their big 'twist' this season."
Though it had been rumored for months, November 17 was the first time ABC confirmed Clare were Dale are engaged .
However, as most Bachelor franchise relationships seem to go these days, Clare and Dale split a few months later.
In January it was confirmed that the love birds separated as they realized that they “did not agree on a lot of things in the long run.”
But the breakup didn't hold, Clare and Dale found their way back to each other within a few months and are working on their relationship and slowing things down this time around.
