Yes, it’s now being reported as fact that Claire Crowley is in fact out on The Bachelorette, and The Bachelor alum, Tayshia Adams is totally in! TMZ has confirmed the rumors were true, but for an awesome reason – Claire Crowley has already found love, early in the process.
No word on who the lucky gentleman is, but apparently Claire told producers she couldn’t continue on with the show, in light of the situation. No problem, they say Tayshia Adams was still looking for love and ready to go! In fact, over the weekend the star dropped a post on social media that most saw as a major hint to the new sitch.
If you don’t know, Tayshia was a part of The Bachelor during the Colt Underwood era and she went on to compete on Bachelor in Paradise, so she kniws exactly what she’s doing here. This would make Tayshia Adams only the 2nd Black lead in Bachelorette history.
As for the show, they’ve filmed some shows, but they’re of course behind schedule due to COVID-19 delays. It’s being speculated the plot will start with Claire Crowley as planned, and with a huge twist, then somehow pivot to Tayshia Adams on the freakin’ fly… wow. These are very exciting times. Until the next time it drips…
