The Bachelorette star Tayshia Adams insists that, unlike Clare Crawley, she did not google her cast of bachelors prior to meeting them on Night 1 of the 2020 season.

"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 Clare left the show early engaged to Dale Moss, Tayshia had 16 bachelors remaining and then four newcomers -- Peter Giannikopoulos, Noah Erb, Montel Hill and Spencer Roberston -- were added into the mix.

The 30-year-old former phlebotomist added, "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."

Producers reached out to Tayshia to replace Clare as The Bachelorette star after Clare fell in love with Dale only 12 days into filming.

Tayshia told Us that she was given only 48 hours to decide whether she wanted to accept the torch Clare would pass on.

Given Tayshia decided to star on the series, she said she's glad she began the 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 Crawley, 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."

However, Tayshia reportedly told her suitors she wouldn't be ready for a marriage proposal by The Bachelorette finale.

"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 recalled.

"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."

But Tayshia confirmed she did have "enough" time to get to know all the men, and she recently revealed to Entertainment Tonight she fell in love with multiple guys on her season!

Tayshia first appeared on Colton Underwood's season of The Bachelor and was eliminated during his round of overnight Fantasy Suite dates.

Tayshia was widely reported to be a frontrunner to star on The Bachelorette's fifteenth season last year, but the position ultimately went to Hannah Brown.

Tayshia therefore appeared on the 2019 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's Season 16 leading lady, 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!"
