HUGE POTENTIAL SPOILERS for Tayshia Adams' time on The Bachelorette Season 16.
Clare Crawley's journey as leading lady of The Bachelorette has come to an end after only four episodes, when the Bachelor Nation veteran chose to leave with Dale Moss rather than continue with the full group of guys. Bachelor and Bachelor in Paradise alum Tayshia Adams stepped in to lead the search for love, and now she has her pick of the guys that Clare left behind. Although Tayshia only just arrived at the resort, spoilers have already leaked to reveal who receives her final rose, but it's going to be a complicated ride.
Spoilers have been fewer and farther between than usual for this season of The Bachelorette due to COVID-19 restrictions preventing the show from traveling all over the world for public dates, but spoiler guru Reality Steve reportedly already has the scoop on Tayshia's final four guys leading to her final rose. He reports that the competition to win Tayshia's heart will come down to Ivan Hall, Zac Clark, Brendan Morais, and Ben Smith.
According to Reality Steve, Tayshia sets her heart on Brendan, but the course of true love for them doesn't run smooth. Or keep running, apparently. Brendan reportedly leaves The Bachelorette on his own without being eliminated, after his family did not travel to participate in hometown dates, pandemic-style at La Quinta Resort & Club in California.
Brendan's divorce, which was finalized a little over a year previously, allegedly contributed to why he decided to leave. Reality Steve isn't clear on whether Brendan makes it to the final three despite his family not showing up for hometown dates. Brendan and Ivan Hall will be cut before the final two is narrowed down to Zac Clark and Ben Smith. Reality Steve says that Tayshia gave her final rose to Zac, but they'll join the ranks of other Bachelor Nation couples who ended a season together without getting engaged.
Reality Steve attributes Tayshia picking Zac to him professing his love and opening up to her more than Ben. Their status following the final rose isn't clear at this point, despite filming completing back in August and the Bachelor Nation crew moving on to Matt James' season of The Bachelor. The spoiler guru has heard conflicting reports that they're together, not together, or doomed to fail because of their differences. The same pandemic protocols that prevented spoiler pics from hitting the web are presumably part of why it's difficult to confirm Tayshia's relationship status.
While other Bachelor Nation leads have had their endings spoiled by social media, that hasn't been the case with Tayshia. Clare Crawley was spotted with a gigantic diamond ring prior to the November 5 episode that confirmed her decision to leave early with Dale Moss, but she explained it away as something other than an engagement ring.
Clare and Dale took to Instagram following the episode to reveal that they're still together after more than three months, and Clare showed off her massive engagement ring. Short of Tayshia opening up on social media, fans may just have to wait for The Bachelorette to make the reveal (or new spoilers to leak).
For now, you can look forward to new episodes of The Bachelorette returning to their usual night on Tuesdays at 8 p.m. ET on ABC. ABC pushed this week's episode to Thursday due to 2020 Election Day coverage. The TV lineup is beginning to fill up, so be sure to check out our 2020 fall TV premiere schedule for more viewing options.
