‘The Bachelorette’ Taps Tayshia Adams to Take Over Season 16

ABC The Bachelorette shakes things up with its first-ever mid-season bachelorette. Season 16’s Clare Crawley got engaged to Dale Moss, effectively ending her time as this season’s bachelorette. Enter fan favorite Tayshia Adams as the new star of The Bachelorette season 16.

Adams made her debut as The Bachelorette star last night, with her journey to fall in love set to begin in earnest on the Tuesday, November 10, 2020 episode.

Tayshia Adams was a contestant on season 23 of The Bachelor as well as season six of Bachelor in Paradise.

ABC offered this description of Tayshia Adams’ journey, as well as the following brief bio:

Bachelor Nation first welcomed Tayshia on the 23rd season of The Bachelor, where a sudden turn of events ended her relationship with a tearful and unexpected goodbye. However, she was no stranger to dealing with heartbreak, after having experienced it in her past marriage. So, a hopeful and determined Tayshia returned to find love in a romantic oasis during the sixth season of Bachelor in Paradise, where the match she made was not her forever love.

Now with the support of her family and friends, she is ready to leave behind her past relationships and bring her purest of intentions to give love another chance. With her parents’ 32-year marriage as her example, she is ready to find that forever love she has been waiting for – the kind her parents have shown her is possible.

A native of Orange County, California, Tayshia is your not-so-basic girl next door who loves a little adrenaline and never misses church on Sundays. Spending time with her family is one of her favorite ways to enjoy her days, and for this sunshine-loving California girl, family is everything! When she’s not co-hosting her new pop-culture podcast “Click Bait with Bachelor Nation,” Tayshia loves to travel and is passionate about exploring all the world has to offer; all she is missing now is a partner with whom to share these experiences.

Tayshia can’t wait for her next plus-one to be THE one with whom she can spend the rest of her life. So, open up the pools because she’s ready to dive in deep and find her life partner as the extraordinary season of The Bachelorette continues.”
