"She has unbelievably strong feelings. She is falling in love. But is that going to be reciprocated fully?" Chris said during a recent interview withEntertainment Tonight, suggesting Tayshia may have gotten her heart broken.
However, a The Bachelorette preview that aired earlier this week showed Ben sitting down with Tayshia and expressing his love for her, so it appears Ben is going to return at some point either hoping for closure or to beg Tayshia for a second chance.
The two-night finale event next week will kick off with Tayshia anticipating overnight Fantasy Suite dates with her three remaining bachelors: Brendan Morais, a 30-year-old commercial roofer from Milford, MA; Ivan Hall, a 28-year-old aeronautical engineer from Dallas, TX; and Zac Clark, a 36-year-old addiction specialist from Haddonfield, NJ.
"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!'"
Tayshia confirmed she had fallen for "way more" guys than she thought she would in a November interview with ET.
When asked how many times she said "I love you" on her season, Tayshia replied, "I say it multiple times." But Tayshia dodged questions on whether she had professed her love to more than 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 at the time.
Tayshia -- who also revealed during the game Zac, Ben, Blake and Brendan were the best kissers on her season -- laughed and dodged the question.
"You had multiple answers for best kisser but you only had one answer for future husband material," Ellen teased Tayshia.
"So, yeah. If you did pick someone else [in the end], you are really in trouble when this airs."
Although Tayshia posted a photo of herself wearing a diamond ring recently on Instagram and sparked speculation she's 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 reportedly said on the 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."
