Bachelorette spoilers reveal what happens next on Tayshia Adams' 2020 The Bachelorette season -- including spoilers revealing which Final 4 bachelors receive hometown dates and who Tayshia picks as her The Bachelorette winner and ends with! Plus, does Tayshia get engaged in the finale?!


[Bachelorette Spoilers Warning: This report contains spoilers that spoil Tayshia Adams' 2020 season of The Bachelorette season and reveal her Final 4 bachelors as well as who Tayshia picked as her winner and ended up with.]

The Bachelorette's next set of episodes air on Monday, December 14 -- which will include The Bachelorette: The Men Tell All footage -- followed by a normal episode on Tuesday, December 15.

Not only is Tayshia falling in love, with at least two men apparently, but the end of her journey is nearing, making each and every decision from this point forward serious and significant.

In the latest episode, Tayshia eliminated Bennett Jordan, Demar Jackson, Ed Waisbrot and Spencer Robertson.

However, fans saw Bennett come back and ask Tayshia for a second chance after telling the Bachelorette, "I love you."

Does Tayshia choose to let him rejoin the competition, which would ultimately give the 36-year-old wealth management consultant from New York City a hometown date?

Tayshia acknowledged figuring out whether to keep Bennett in the running was an extremely hard decision since she still had seven other wonderful men left.

The bachelors who will be fighting for hometown dates in the next episode are Noah Erb, a 25-year-old registered travel nurse from Tulsa, OK; Ben Smith, a 29-year-old Army Ranger veteran from Venice, CA; and Blake Moynes, a 29-year-old wildlife manager from Hamilton, Ontario, Canada.

Brendan Morais, a 30-year-old commercial roofer from Milford, MA, is also still competing for Tayshia's heart as well as Ivan Hall, a 28-year-old aeronautical engineer from Dallas, TX; Riley Christian, a 30-year-old attorney from Long Island City, NY; and Zac Clark, a 36-year-old addiction specialist from Haddonfield, NJ.

Zac and Ben appear to be the frontrunners in The Bachelorette process at this stage of Season 16.

Tayshia gushed of Ben after a one-on-one date, "The way that made me feel tonight is the way I want to feel with my future husband. I feel so connected with him right now. I could really see him being by my side for the rest of my life. I truly love Ben."

And Tayshia told Zac to his face that she was "falling in love" with him after he expressed his deep feelings for her.

So did both Ben and Zac earn themselves a hometown date and maybe even Tayshia's final rose, or did a dark horse pull ahead and eventually win Tayshia over?

And what about Bennett, does he return?!

Keep reading for The Bachelorette spoilers to find out what happens in the next two episodes as well as the show's sixteenth-season finale. 

Tayshia picks her Final 4 bachelors in the next The Bachelorette episode

The Bachelorette's tenth episode on Monday, December 14 will be a mix of footage from Tayshia's currently-airing season as well as the The Men Tell All special.

Tayshia agonizes over which of the men's families she should meet for hometown dates, and Bennett's surprise return adds more pressure.

Hoping to gain some clarity, Tayshia takes Blake on a one-on-one date to a crystal guru so they can have their crystals and chakras read.

"Overcome with emotion, she makes some gut-wrenching decisions about her remaining men, which reaches a turning point at a high-stakes cocktail party and Rose Ceremony," ABC teased of the upcoming episode.

According to Reality Steve spoiler blogger Steve Carbone, Tayshia chooses to give roses to Ben Smith, Zac Clark, Brendan Morais, and Ivan Hall at the Rose Ceremony. Tayshia therefore picks those guys as her Final 4 bachelors.

After narrowing down her group of bachelors to a lucky few, many of the Season 16 men will join The Bachelorette host Chris Harrison for The Men Tell All -- including Demar, Ed, Jason Foster, Kenny Braasch and Yosef Aborady.

Carbone reported, however, none of Tayshia's Final 4 bachelors were in attendance when The Men Tell All taped in Nemacolin in November.

There were reportedly only nine guys in attendance. According to Carbone, Bennett and Noah were in attendance for sure in addition the guys ABC has confirmed.

The guys will take a look back at the romance, drama and heartbreak of Season 16.

"Bitter rivalries take center stage as the men face off against each other one last time during The Men Tell All," ABC shared of the reunion.

"Will Yosef apologize for his offensive behavior toward [Clare Crawley]? Who will get the last word as the bachelors confront one another and Tayshia?"

At the end of The Men Tell All, viewers will receive a sneak peek at the rest of Tayshia's season and the conclusion of her journey to find love.

The Bachelorette Episode 11 spoilers

The Bachelorette episode airing Tuesday, December 15 is "explosive" according to ABC.

Tayshia can't travel to her Final 4 bachelors' hometowns, so the men are asked to be creative and bring the flavor and feeling of home and what their life is usually like to The Bachelorette resort in Palm Springs, CA.

One man treats Tayshia to a small-town carnival, but when she meets the man's family, Tayshia may determine the guy is not really ready to propose marriage, confirming fears she already had.

Tayshia designs a pair of sneakers with another bachelor, who goes all out to impress her.

The man's family is skeptical of his relationship with Tayshia, however, the family may change their minds upon seeing the couple together.

For Tayshia's third date, she and one suitor receive a cooking lesson from "one of the greatest chefs in the world," according to ABC.

The man, however, is disappointed to discovers a key person in his life won't be able to meet Tayshia and attend the family gathering.

"But there is a huge surprise for him before the end of the evening. The last man realizes that he is in love with the Bachelorette but will he be able to share those feelings at the most crucial time of their journey?" ABC teased.

Tayshia expects to enjoy an overnight Fantasy Suite date with her remaining three bachelors at the end of hometown dates -- but that won't be the case!

Tayshia didn't google her bachelors before filming like Clare

Tayshia insists that unlike Clare Crawley, she did not google her cast of bachelors prior to meeting them on Night 1 of Season 16.

"I did not [cyber stalk]. I did not," Tayshia confirmed during a recent interview with Us Weekly.

"When I was in quarantine, I didn't think that this phone call [to be the Bachelorette] was ever going to come. At that point, The Bachelorette had started [filming]. I did look at the guys once they were first announced for Clare, but that was, like, months and months ago."

ABC released an initial cast of 32 potential bachelors for Clare all the way back in March, and Clare previously admitted she had researched some of those guys and checked out their social media accounts.


A revised list of 42 men was later released in July, and then after quarantine and COVID-19 testing, 31 guys actually appeared on Clare's season and got to date her.

Once Tayshia began her stint on the show, she had 20 men to choose from, including the four newcomers who never got to date Clare.

"I didn't really have the chance to look at them before [I met them], and I'm glad I didn't, to be honest," Tayshia said.

Tayshia expressed relief and satisfaction over beginning The Bachelorette process with no expectations or preconceived notions about any of the men.

"I just went into it just honestly giving it my all and leaning into the process and honestly being me," Tayshia shared.

"And I loved that I didn't know anything about them and they knew nothing about me. They didn't know who was coming through those doors. I loved it all. I thought it was amazing."

Tayshia admitted she was hesitant to sign on for The Bachelorette only because the cast of guys had initially signed up for Clare, but it apparently all worked out in the end.

"I couldn't have asked for, like, a better group of men. I've always said that I want an older, more mature man that has depth, and all of these guys have exactly that," Tayshia gushed to Us. "It was, like, perfect."

Tayshia fell in love with multiple The Bachelorette bachelors

Tayshia revealed in a November interview she fell in love with multiple men while filming the show's 2020 season.

When Entertainment Tonight asked how many times Tayshia said "I love you" on her season, Tayshia replied, "I say it multiple times."

Tayshia admitted she fell for "way more" guys than she thought she would, but she dodged questions about whether she professed her love to more than just one guy.

"I didn't know it was possible to fall in love with multiple people, but when you just really lean into the journey and really be vulnerable, you never know what can happen. And it happened to me," Tayshia shared.


Tayshia also revealed she's "happy" after filming the show with the right intentions and an open heart and she's "possibly" engaged and in love right now.

Tayshia confirmed in the interview her time on the show "lasted a few more weeks" than Clare's journey to find love.

"You just really see the men... And the guys are incredible," Tayshia teased of what's to come. "But they did make me cry and there are a lot of fun dates and a lot of twists and turns. It's a really good season."

Tayshia said her time on the show was much harder than she had ever imagined and the process was "really intense."

Brendan left The Bachelorette after making Tayshia's Final 4 bachelors!

Carbone reported that Brendan chose to leave the show on his own, which may come as a surprise to viewers since he gushed about possibly spending the rest of his life with Tayshia on their first one-on-one date.

"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," Carbone explained in his blog.

"But I don't know exactly when Brendan eliminated himself."

It therefore remains unclear as to whether Brendan or Ivan finished in third or fourth place.

The Bachelorette Final 2 bachelors spoilers

Although Carbone reported in late September that he had heard Brendan and Ivan were Tayshia's frontrunners, the spoiler blogger claims Ben Smith and Zac Clark 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.

However, Tayshia was reportedly trying to nurse a broken heart from Brendan leaving once she had two men left in the competition.

"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.


The situation sounds similar to what unfolded on The Bachelorette's ninth season, which starred Desiree Hartsock.

Desiree appeared to fall in love with Brooks Forester on her season, but Brooks suddenly decided to leave the show and walk out on Desiree during the last week of filming.

Desiree apparently got her heart broken and wasn't sure whether she'd be able to continue with the process, but she ended up getting engaged to Chris Siegfried in the finale. Many fans then criticized Desiree for ending up with her second choice.

When Variety asked ABC executive Robert Mills in a recent interview to tease Tayshia's time on the show, he said, "It's just as emotional as Clare's, but in a totally different way."

"Tayshia really allowed herself to fall in love with multiple guys. It's always such a roller coaster," Rob shared.

"At the end, there are a lot of heartbreaking, devastating moments. There's not really a villain. It's more like, 'I want her to end up with him. Wait no, I want her to be with this guy!'"

The Bachelorette spoilers for Tayshia's winner

Carbone has recently 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 Clark!


"When filming wrapped at the end of August, Tayshia had chosen Zac C. over Ben," Carbone reported.

But does that necessarily mean Tayshia found her happy ending?


Tayshia and Zac Clark didn't reportedly get engaged!

Although Tayshia picked Zac in the end, the couple reportedly did not get engaged.

Carbone reported in late September the conclusion of Tayshia's time on The Bachelorette may be surprising and unexpected.

"I do not think we had a normal ending with Tayshia's season," Carbone wrote in his blog.

The spoiler blogger did not provide specific details at the time, but the shocking ending could possibly be Carbone's early-November revelation that Brendan decided to quit and so Tayshia had to pick up the pieces after that with the two men left.

"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," Carbone claimed.

Tayshia has claimed she didn't want to get engaged

Tayshia reportedly told her cast of bachelors while filming Season 16 she didn't want to get engaged at the end of her journey.

Tayshia felt the need to tell her suitors she wouldn't be ready for a marriage proposal by the The Bachelorette finale, according to Us Weekly.


"I told them, 'I don't think I'm gonna get engaged at the end of this, I think I might just leave with a boyfriend or whatever,' and they [understood] and said, 'We're not gonna pressure you to do anything,'" Tayshia, 30, told the magazine's Bachelor Happy Hour podcast.

"You do what your heart wants, so I didn't ever really feel that pressure of, 'Oh my God, I need to find a husband right now.' So I just kind of lived my journey how I wanted to."

Although Tayshia's journey on the show didn't begin until a couple of weeks in due to Clare Crawley's initial stint on The Bachelorette, Tayshia assured Us that she had "enough" time with her group of guys.

"I don't really think I had too short of a time. That was a fear that I had," Tayshia said.

She continued, "I feel like if I had too much time, I might've done what Clare would've done, like, looked up all these guys on Instagram, kind of had an idea on who I wanted to talk to... And I loved that I didn't know anything about them and they knew nothing about me."

Tayshia said the guys "really showed who they are and what they had to offer" in the time they had together.

"[And] I did the same. When you know you know, I think," Tayshia shared. "Either you have an attraction to someone or you don't, and I feel like that's what I kept leaning into."

Are there spoilers for if Tayshia and Zac are still together now?

Carbone said he's not sure where Tayshia and Zac's relationship stands now and anyone's guess is as good as his own.

"Some people have told me they aren't together, some have told me they still are but it's not that solid, and some have said it's never gonna last," Carbone wrote.

"She's a SoCal girl who wants to be an influencer. He runs a sober living facility in NY. So that's where we are right now."


Considering Tayshia and Zac reportedly didn't get engaged, they don't have much of a commitment to uphold to one another when times get tough.

But, Tayshia has been seen with a diamond ring recently

Could Tayshia be engaged after all?! She was spotted with a diamond ring!

Tayshia recently sparked speculation she could possibly be engaged by flashing an apparent big diamond ring on her hand.

Tayshia flashed the big diamond ring when she posted a recipe for her iced coffee on Instagram Stories and also shared a selfie of herself holding up her glass and drinking from a straw while recording a recent episode of her Click Bait podcast, according to Us Weekly.

"New @clickbaitBN being recorded!" Tayshia reportedly captioned the selfie in early December.


When did ABC think they would have to replace Clare with Tayshia?

Rob Mills told Variety that after filming Episode 3 of The Bachelorette's sixteenth season, it was pretty obvious Clare wouldn't be able to fake it with the other guys since her mind was so focused on Dale.

Rob and the other producers were thinking to themselves, "How do we make this a horse race?"

"We have to keep people invested for 10 weeks, and they're just going to see her wanting to be with Dale. She made other connections with other guys -- she was okay kissing them and there was definitely a lot of great drama and all of the typical things that you like on The Bachelor," Rob explained.

"But our one big worry was that we wanted to make sure that she really wanted to be with Dale and wouldn't make another connection with someone else. But by Week 3, she was really emotional over it and she was crying and there were real feelings there."

Rob also said "the guys had checked out" by that point and were "just sort of done."

"They're stuck in this one place -- it's not like we could travel and have that to look forward to -- so the bubble was starting to close in on itself... The guys felt a little spurned that they're going all in for Clare," Rob said.

"They've left their jobs to be there, they've quarantined there, it's insanely hot in Palm Springs, and they never really had a chance because Clare only had eyes for one guy. You just go with instinct at that point."


By the end of filming Episode 3, Rob recalled, "The producers started discussing like, 'What would happen if she wants to leave with Dale?' And that's when the producers thought that maybe we should reach out to Tayshia."

The producers had previously met with Tayshia because she was in consideration to star on The Bachelorette's sixteenth season.

"We had met with her earlier and told her that this time, it's going to be Clare," Rob told Variety in his recent interview.

"So since [Clare and Dale] was so unexpected, she came in and basically said, 'You never know when things are going to shake up in your life.' And we are so lucky that we ended up getting two all-time Bachelorettes."

Rob clarified of producers' decision to switch the lead, "There really wasn't the luxury of time, so it was really instinctual."

Rob also insisted replacing Clare with Tayshia was a "roll of the dice" and never a pre-meditated situation, which Carbone had previously claimed. (Carbone said producers knew all along Tayshia would take over for Clare at some point).

Rob said the fact people are questioning the validity of Clare and Tayshia's storyline is "insane."

"You just think, 'Oh my gosh, I swear we didn't plan this,'" Rob insisted.

Tayshia was nearly The Bachelorette's star last season!

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.

Clare began filming her portion of The Bachelorette in mid-July.

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 of The Bachelorette but Clare's short journey to find love would also be featured on the show this fall.
