Tayshia Adams has begun her journey as the new lead on The Bachelorette, after Clare Crawley forfeited the reality show to pursue her relationship with frontrunner, Dale Moss.
Tayshia’s new role was teased for many weeks, after it was discovered that Clare had decided to exit the show prematurely due to her belief that her connection to Dale Moss was by far the strongest.
The Bachelorette then continuously teased images of Tayshia on Instagram, making it clear that she would be taking on the role of the new season 16 lead.
The first episode saw Tayshia being introduced to the remaining men from Clare’s season, who were desperate to see if they had a connection with her. The show also introduced four new men to replace those who had already been sent home.
Unlike any of the other seasons, season 16 is taking place in a bubble, with Tayshia, the men and the crew being quarantined together to combat the spread of the coronavirus.
