'The Bachelor' alum Tayshia Adams exits 'Bachelor' podcasts, Tia Booth stepping in

The Bachelor alum Tayshia Adams has pivoted in her entertainment career, as she will no longer be co-hosting the "Click Bait with Bachelor Nation" and "Bachelor Happy Hour" podcasts.
Tayshia, 31, and Kaitlyn Bristowe were not asked to co-host The Bachelor's currently-airing 26th season, and now, Tayshia is also done with both of her Bachelor Nation-produced podcasts, Us Weeklyreported.
The Bachelor alum Serena Pitt, who accepted a marriage proposal from Joe on Bachelor in Paradise's seventh season last year, has served as Becca's co-host for recent episodes.
Together, Becca and Serena interviewed Season 26 The Bachelor star Clayton Echard on the latest episode of "Bachelor Happy Hour."
Tayshia -- who starred onThe Bachelorette's sixteenth season in 2020 -- sparked speculation she was done with the two podcasts earlier this month when she reportedly removed mentions of the shows from her Instagram bio.
Tayshia's Instagram bio, however, still reads, "Co-Host of ABC's The Bachelorette."
Tayshia had co-hosted both The Bachelorette's seventeenth and eighteenth seasons.
Tayshia apparently had a rough end to 2021, especially because Kaitlyn told Us in December that Tayshia had been "beside herself" and very visibly upset backstage while taping The Men Tell All.
"I'm so proud of her for being so professional and being able to show up and put a smile on her face and do a great job hosting while going through it," Kaitlyn gushed of her pal, adding that Tayshia handled the show like "a true professional."
After Tayshia's representative announced in late November the Season 16 The Bachelorette star and Zac had decided to part ways, Tayshia told the audience in tears during The Men Tell All that she was "heartbroken."
The couple's relationship apparently fell apart pretty recently given Tayshia and Zac had put on a united front and seemed to be thriving as a couple in early November.
On November 7, Tayshia and Zac participated in the New York City Marathon together, and Zac gushed about his fiancee the following day on Instagram. He said the world is "a better place" with Tayshia in it.
And ahead of the big race, Zac told People that he was excited things were about to calm down for Tayshia and himself.
"We're really looking forward to kicking back after we get done and really spending some time here in New York," Zac said.
"With our schedules and how everything's worked out, we're just super excited to take advantage of what's here and eat some good food and explore a little bit and make sure that she really feels like she knows New York."
Prior to starring on The Bachelorette 16 last year, Tayshia competed for Colton Underwood's heart on The Bachelor's 23rd season and was eliminated during his round of overnight Fantasy Suite dates.
