Tayshia Adams was finally introduced on the latest episode of The Bachelorette after months of rumors claiming she was set to replace Clare Crawley as the show's lead. While Crawley may get her happily ever with Dale Moss, a new spoiler from Reality Steve suggests Adams doesn't find the one after she takes over.
"Next week we get Tayshia coming in and, well, if you want a Bachelorette that’s basically a 180 from Clare, here it comes," the reliable spoiler source wrote on this blog. "That’s neither good or bad. I’m just telling you, it’s gonna be different. And by the way, you better enjoy the Clare/Dale love story this season – because that’s the only one you’re getting."
Not only did Reality Steve reveal Adams doesn't walk away from her turn as The Bachelorette with a ring on her finger, he does reveal that he's "seen enough" proof to believe producers planned to replace Crawley before filming began. "Based on things I’ve heard and texts that I’ve seen, I absolutely believe that Tayshia was planned before the first night of filming ever happened," he wrote. "Too many things point to it that I know about. But I cannot share those points without outing people."
"However, this edit Clare is getting certainly should be playing a role in the credibility of what I’m reporting for those that aren’t privy to the info I have," he continued. "It’s like they’re saying, 'Screw it. Who cares? We’re bringing Tayshia in, so lets make Clare’s portion as messy as we can. It’s only 4 episodes.' And they’ve sure done that."
Crawley recently liked some pointed messages on Twitter that seem to support this theory, including one from Bachelorette fan Marietou Sangare that read: “I think they were trying to force her outon some real and I really feel like they are giving her a bad edit (just my opinion). They are feeding into the narrative and the rumors and making it seem like it was Clare’s decision that this ended and I feel like that’s not the case. They had Tayshia quarantined 9 days after Clare started filming. They wanted to remove Clare. And I just don’t think it’s fair.”
That wasn't the only interesting tweet Crawley liked, either. Another post by Sangare that Crawley favorited read: “Production knows exactly what they were doing. They’ve never had a lead just ‘quit’ and with how excited and how bad Clare wanted this, I doubt it. They were ready with a back up and as soon as they found out that Clare was into Dale it was a wrap,” the post continued. “Don’t you see with how the last two episodes have been produced, there’s no drama and the drama that they’ve shown has been dramatized and fixated to make Clare look a certain type of way. Production has control over literally everything. They know what they’re doing.”
The Bachelorette usually airs Tuesdays at 8 p.m. ET/PT on ABC, however, the next episode will air on Thursday, Nov. 5 due to the election.
