The Bachelorette season 16 has been filled with surprises, and now (SPOILERS TO FOLLOW) there is information about who reportedly received Tayshia Adams’ first impression rose. All but one (Dale Moss) of the eligible men from Clare Crawley’s season realized that they had no chance of winning Clare’s heart. Now, a new Bachelorette is set to swoop in and steal the show.
The Bachelorette season 16 was delayed and that triggered tons of gossip. Clare Crawley’s season, which was the “most awaited” one yet, turned into the most shocking one, too. The ABC show that set out to follow the 39-year-old hairdresser as she looked for love addressed pandemic concerns and then let her attraction to Dale Moss, 31, take center stage. From the moment that Dale, who is a former NFL star, stepped out of his limo, Bachelor Nation knew that all the rumors were true. Clare gave him the first impression rose and set the drama for the upcoming episodes in motion. The latest episode saw Clare getting worked up over the roasting of Dale, on what’s being called “The Clare and Dale Show.” There is also the #JusticeForZach trend. Then. there was Tayshia, clad in a bikini, dramatically exiting a pool, and getting ready to enter the reality show as the next Bachelorette. With a whole new woman to get to know better (and impress), do the possible “best suited” men that Bachelorette Clare Crawley overlooked stand a chance? Maybe not.
If speculation is anything to go by, and Reality Steve (a blogger known for reliable Bachelor and Bachelorette spoilers) is to be believed, The Bachelorette team gave Tayshia an updated list of guys to choose from. Apart from the men who remain in the upcoming episode, with the exception of Dale, there are “at least” four guys who’ve never met Clare that will be brought on the show “ONLY” for Tayshia. The Bachelor season 23 star who made it all the way to the final three will mingle with the new men. Their names are Spencer Robertson, Montel Hill, Peter Giannikopoulos, and Noah Erb. As per Steve, Spencer is the one who gets the coveted first impression rose from Tayshia. However, the source also adds that Robertson getting the rose didn’t really guarantee the San Diego native’s place on the show. Spencer apparently got kicked off before reaching the top four!
As revealed by Steve on his podcast, “Spencer was only brought on for Tayshia.” The 30-year-old man who never even met Clare did get Tayshia’s “first impression rose and didn’t even make the final four.” Spencer, who works as a general manager at Robertson Water Treatment in San Diego, probably didn’t get the treatment that Dale got after receiving his first impression flower.
With Tayshia reportedly having finished filming for The Bachelorette in September, after Clare fled following only 14 days of filming, rumors about the winning man are also doing the rounds. However, there are only so many spoilers that can be shared in one story. Until then, the Bachelor Nation may rest assured that Clare does say goodbye to the show.
The Bachelorette season 16 airs Tuesdays (Shifted to Thursday next week for election night) at 8 pm ET/PT on ABC.
