According to Reality Steve spoiler blogger Steve Carbone, Clare eliminated 14 of her 31 guys during her short-lived time on the show -- seven men on Night 1 and seven more suitors over the course of the next two Rose Ceremonies.
"As far as I know, none of the guys left the show once Clare left and Tayshia came in," Carbone wrote in his blog.
The 16 men who reportedly switched gears from getting to know Clare to dating Tayshia on Season 16 included Chasen Nick, a 31-year-old IT account executive from San Diego, CA; Joe Park, a 36-year-old anesthesiologist from New York City, NY; Ivan Hall, a 28-year-old aeronautical engineer from Dallas, TX; and Blake Moynes, a 29-year-old wildlife manager from Hamilton, Ontario, Canada.
The list also included Ed Waisbrot, a 36-year-old health care salesman from Miami, FL; Demar Jackson, a 26-year-old spin cycling instructor from Scottsdale, AZ; Brendan Morais, a 30-year-old commercial roofer from Milford, MA; Kenny Braasch, a 39-year-old boyband manager from Chicago, IL; Jason Foster, a 31-year-old former pro football lineman from Arlington, VA; and Tyler Cottrill, a 27-year-old lawyer from Morgantown, WV.
The remaining bachelors who stuck around for Tayshia during filming, according to Carbone, were Ben Smith, a 29-year-old Army Ranger veteran from Venice, CA; Jay Smith, a 30-year-old fitness director from Fort Lauderdale, FL; Eazy, a 29-year-old sports marketing agent from Newport Beach, CA; Zac Clark, a 36-year-old addiction specialist from Haddonfield, NJ; Riley Christian, a 30-year-old attorney from Long Island City, NY; and Bennett Jordan, a 36-year-old wealth management consultant from New York City, NY.
Tayshia fans have been worried she got stuck with Clare's "leftovers" when she began filming her portion of the show, but Carbone reported on September 30 that four new men were brought into the mix just for Tayshia.
The four brand new men -- who never even met Clare, allegedly -- were Spencer Robertson, a 30-year-old from La Jolla, CA, who received Tayshia's First Impression Rose; 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.
Carbone says with certainty that neither guy dated Clare, so the spoiler blogger believes Gary and Karl either took a shot at love with Tayshia or never appeared on Season 16 at all.
When Clare's 31 bachelors are added to Tayshia's four additions, plus maybe Gary and Karl, that brings the total to 37 suitors.
Carbone claims he was able to confirm the remaining five guys from Clare's July list of 42 potential suitors -- Alex Brusiloff, Collins Youngblood, Ellis Matthews, Josh Elledge, and Tien Yang -- never dated Clare or Tayshia on Season 16.
"I say almost positive because things were done so differently this season. I'm hearing guys outside of Final 4 had family/friends brought into the bubble to meet Tayshia, but I've been unable to confirm that," Carbone wrote late last month.
Carbone also admitted he's unsure of the show's format for Season 16 and whether Tayshia had traditional hometown and overnight dates within the bubble that was La Quinta Resort & Club in Palm Springs, CA.
"I think those are her four based on what sources gave to me, timing of when I received it, and where it came from. I also heard with a couple weeks left in filming that 'Brendan and Ivan' are her frontrunners," Carbone reported.
Carbone also heard Ben's sister Madalyn has been boasting to people that her brother finished in the Final 2.
"I have no idea how true that is or was. And I'm not saying she ended up with either one of them because I don't know if she did," Carbone wrote.
At this time, Carbone is unsure of which bachelor received Tayshia's final rose and how her season ended when filming wrapped in late August. All Carbone can say about Tayshia's ending is that it was "messy" and "full of drama."
"I do not think we had a normal ending with Tayshia's season," Carbone reported, although he could not provide specific details.
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 Bachelorettebut Clare's short journey to find love will also be featured on the show when it airs this fall.
Tayshia was widely reported to be a frontrunner forThe 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.
