(Clare has recently "liked" tweets suggesting production forced her off the show -- which Reality Steve spoiler blogger Steve Carbone and her friend Michelle Money agree with -- but show host Chris Harrison has insisted Clare had "complete control" of her season and was "certainly not" kicked out of her role).
Once Clare and Dale took off from The Bachelorette resort to start a life together, Chris had to pick up the pieces and break the news to Clare's remaining men that their Bachelorette was engaged and done with the dating process.
Chris apologized to the guys for having put their hearts on the line only to be dumped so early in The Bacheloretteprocess.
Chris said it was unprecedented for Clare to research Dale before the show but Clare had "sworn up and down" she and Dale did not engage in any type of relationship pre-filming.
Chris admitted the guys had been "cheated" out of finding love, and so he said a historic move was about to be taken. Chris explained the guys' journey was "not over" as long as they could look past their relationships with Clare and move on.
Chris revealed a new woman would be brought to La Quinta Resort & Club in Palm Springs, CA, for the guys to meet and date.
Chris gave the guys a chance to quit and leave, saying there would be no shame in that, and then the men had a full day to think about things.
Later that evening, all 16 of Clare's "leftovers" put their suits on and awaited the new The Bachelorette star, who was about to pull up in a limo and introduce herself.
The 16 men included Bennett Jordan, a 36-year-old wealth management consultant from New York City, NY; Ben Smith, a 29-year-old Army Ranger veteran from Venice, CA; Blake Moynes, a 29-year-old wildlife manager from Hamilton, Ontario, Canada; Brendan Morais, a 30-year-old commercial roofer from Milford, MA; Chasen Nick, a 31-year-old IT account executive from San Diego, CA; and Demar Jackson, a 26-year-old spin cycling instructor from Scottsdale, AZ.
Ed Waisbrot, a 36-year-old health care salesman from Miami, FL; Ivan Hall, a 28-year-old aeronautical engineer from Dallas, TX; Jason Foster, a 31-year-old former pro football lineman from Arlington, VA; Jay Smith, a 30-year-old fitness director from Fort Lauderdale, FL; and Joe Park, a 36-year-old anesthesiologist from New York City, NY, also showed up.
And the rest of the bachelors were Jordan Chapman, a 26-year-old software account executive from New York, NY; Kenny Braasch, a 39-year-old boyband manager from Chicago, IL; Riley Christian, a 30-year-old attorney from Long Island City, NY; Uzoma "Eazy" Nwachukwu, a 29-year-old sports marketing agent from Newport Beach, CA; and Zac Clark, a 36-year-old addiction specialist from Haddonfield, NJ.
"Gentleman, your new Bachelorette is on her way here right now. That's right. You guys have a brand new Bachelorette. This woman is incredible. She is smart, independent, stunningly beautiful and really kind and charismatic," Chris explained.
Chris added that this woman couldn't wait to get to know all the guys and was truly at a place in her life where she's ready to find true love.
Tayshia fans have been worried she got stuck with Clare's "leftovers" when she began filming her portion of the show, but more men were added to the cast once Tayshia started her stint as the Bachelorette, which sparked a little drama.
Carbone reported on September 30 that the four new men who were brought in to date Tayshia were Spencer Robertson, a 30-year-old from La Jolla, CA; Montel Hill, a 30-year-old from Hingham, MA; Peter Giannikopoulos, a 32-year-old from Everett, MA; and Noah Erb, a 25-year-old from Tulsa, OK.
Spencer, Montel, Peter and Noah were reportedly required to quarantine for two weeks while Clare filmed her part of The Bachelorette, before they were brought in for Tayshia.
Spencer reportedly received Tayshia's coveted First Impression Rose.
Carbone also reported it's a possibility Gary Briggs and Karl Smith may have competed for Tayshia, although the spoiler blogger is not sure whether the two men will ever appear on Season 16.
Gary and Karl were two of Clare's 42 potential suitors who quarantined before production commenced in July.
During the next episode, Tayshia asks Brendan to accompany her on her first one-on-one date of the season, but he was apparently keeping "a secret" about his past relationship.
"Although he is eager to make a deeper connection, he is worried that baggage from a past relationship might put an end to his romantic prospects before the night is over on The Bachelorette," ABC teased in a press release for the upcoming episode.
As for Tayshia's first group date, a pool party resulted in two teams competing in a game of splash ball to win extra time with Tayshia.
"The physical game grows heated between two of the men, spilling over to the after-party. Will it ruin her romantic evening? She offers her group date rose to one thrilled bachelor," ABC teased.
"Meanwhile, what does one guy do with all the feelings he still has for Clare? Can he have those same emotions about Tayshia? He decides to reveal his tortured state of mind to the Bachelorette, surprising her with a late-night visit."
Also during the next episode, Clare and Dale will be shown sitting down with Chris for a heart-to-heart about their relationship. Chris will ask Clare and Dale to reveal once and for all whether they communicated prior to filming the show.
Carbone reported that Brendan chose to leave the show on his own.
"His family was the only one that didn't show up for hometown dates... Brendan's divorce was finalized just over a year ago, and apparently that played a big role in why he left," Carbone wrote November 4 on his blog.
"Guess he just wasn't ready to jump into another relationship."
Carbone, however, is unsure of whether Brendan left the show at Final 4 or Final 3.
"Seemingly you'd think that if [Brendan]'s family didn't show up for hometowns (all other 3 had family and/or friends show up at La Quinta to meet Tayshia), then she would've eliminated him at that point, leaving Ivan, Zac C., and Ben as your Final 3. But I don't know exactly when Brendan eliminated himself," Carbone explained in his blog.
It therefore remains unclear as to whether Brendan or Ivan finished in third or fourth place.
Although Carbone reported in late September that he had heard Brendan and Ivan were Tayshia's frontrunners, the spoiler blogger claims Ben and Zac C. finished the season as Tayshia's Final 2 bachelors.
Carbone heard around the time filming wrapped in late August that Ben's sister Madalynn was bragging to people about how her brother had finished in Tayshia's Final 2.
"I know that Ben and Zac C. are Tayshia's Final 2," Carbone wrote on Instagram.
"I do not think we had a normal ending with Tayshia's season," Carbone reported in late September, although he could not provide specific details at the time.
In early November, Carbone updated his spoilers and revealed Tayshia's winner in his blog.
According to Carbone's November 4 post, Tayshia's final rose went to Zac C.!
"When filming wrapped at the end of August, Tayshia had chosen Zac C. over Ben," Carbone reported.
However, Tayshia and Zac reportedly did not get engaged. Not only was Tayshia's journey to find love shorter than a typical season, but Carbone says Tayshia might have given her heart out to a different guy.
"From what I've heard, Brendan is who Tayshia wanted. And when he left, she was pretty distraught but still ended up picking somebody," Carbone reported.
"I was told Zac was the one who opened up to her the most and professed his love, whereas it was much tougher for Ben, so ultimately she picked Zac."
News of Tayshia's participation first shocked the world on July 31 when a spoiler about her replacing Clare was posted on Reddit and then Carbone tweeted there was "some serious validity" to the posting.
Entertainment Tonight subsequently confirmed on August 3 that Tayshia became the new star ofThe Bachelorette but Clare's short journey to find love would also be featured on the show this fall.
Tayshia was widely reported to be a frontrunner for The Bachelorette's Season 15 leading lady, but the position ultimately went to Hannah Brown.
Tayshia therefore appeared on last year's edition of Bachelor in Paradise, where she fell in love with John Paul Jones but dumped him before the season concluded.
While the couple briefly reconciled and began dating in the real world after leaving Paradise, Tayshia and John Paul ultimately split in October 2019.
Just days before Clare was announced as The Bachelorette star earlier this year, Tayshia admitted to ET that she would be "ready" for the gig.
"I have to say, anything that comes my way, I am ready for," Tayshia shared in late February. "I am ready for love!"
The Bachelorette's new season was originally supposed to have filmed in March and premiered on May 18, but global health restrictions in light of coronavirus had shut down nearly all Hollywood productions.
