Tayshia Adams to Replace Clare Crawley as The Bachelorette?!?

Post date:



The craziest and most unpredictable The Bachelorette season may soon get even more crazy and unpredictable.

Due to the FIRST-EVER star switcheroo before episodes even air.

As previously reported, ABC may be thinking about replacing Clare Crawley for Season 16.


Because, according to Life & Style sources, the 39-year old is already in love!

She’s reportedly been filming in an isolated California location for just two weeks… and decided that she wants to marry Dale Moss, who is pictured below.

Why continue filming, Crawley allegedly figures, if she’s ready to start her life right this very instant with Moss?!?

According to this shocking tabloid report, producers were totally “blindsided” by Clare’s declaration.

It’s even been rumored that Clare “refused to come out of her room” at one point during shooting because she did not want to continue dating men who are not Dale.

How sweet, right?

And also: How sort of totally weird after just knowing this guy for 12 days and how incredibly inconvenient for the show itself, right?

Clare Crawley on The Bachelor

In a last-second attempt to salvage the season — which has already been delayed by the coronavirus outbreak and which will look unlike any past season of this franchise — producers have maybe come up with a solution:

Exit Clare Crawley.

Enter Tayshia Adams!

Adams finished second to Hannah on Season 23 of The Bachelor, nearly winning over Colton Underwood.

She has been considered a pretty strong fan favorite ever since — and now executives supposedly want to take advantage of her recent popularity by turning her into the new Bachelorette.

Potentially amazing, right?!?

While Clare already sent home a few of her contestants before falling in for Moss, producers would like to “match [Tayshia] up with the bachelors who are left,” Life & Style writes.

The suitors, of course, signed on for Season 16 under the impression that they’d be competing for Crawley.


“Execs hope the guys will still want to participate” with the 29-year-old replacement because “it took them time to test them all for COVID and they’ve already been quarantined at the resort for 14 days,” an insider says.


Adams, who also participated in Bachelor in Paradise, had previously been considered for the role Clare eventually earned.

Viewers got really excited over the possibility a few months ago (see Tweet below), while Ashley Iaconetti  told Life & Style in February:

“[Tayshia would be a] really good choice,” show alum Ashley Iaconetti gushed to Life & Style in February, adding:

“She is just so likable … She’s just pretty fantastic.”

it’s worth noting, of course, that Adams is also African-American and the series has been under fire of late for its lack of diversity.

Hence why it has already cast Matt James as The Bachelor.

“Producers are scrambling to figure out what to do,” this magazine source says of the Clare situation. “They are frantically trying to pick up the pieces without having to start over completely.”


Us Weekly, meanwhile, has not suggested that Crawley is out and Adams is in.

But this publication has also acknowledged that something seems to be amiss with filming.

“Last weekend, producers reached out to backup Bachelorette contestants who had been vetted for Clare’s season but were ultimately not cast to film at La Quinta [Resort],” an insider has said.

“When producers reached back out, out of the blue, it was very apparent that something had happened with production.”

Wild, right?
