Tayshia Adams, The Second Black Bachelorette In The Show's History, Arrives With A Bang

In August, sources told People Magazine that Clare Crawley left The Bachelorette mid-season after she caught feelings for one of the contestants.

“No one else stood a chance,” the source said at the time. “It just became so obvious from her subsequent few dates that her heart wasn’t in it and she just wasn’t feeling it. Then she said she wanted out.”

Crawley’s replacement is Tayshia Adams. Adams is a contestant from season 23 of The Bachelor. She later appeared on Bachelor in Paradise 

After weeks of anticipation of her introduction, Adams arrives to take Crawley’s place as lead on The Bachelorette.

In a teaser for next week’s episode, Crawley is seen in tears while talking to host Chris Harrison.

“The path we’re on right now, it doesn’t end well … for anybody,” Harrison says to Crawley. “I’ve just waited so long for this,” Crawley says back. 

Harrison delivers the most infamous line in the show’s history, “You’ve just blown up The Bachelorette.”

Crawley walks out of the Palm Springs resort embraces what looks like two producers. The contestants are visibility confused. 

“Clare’s gone, and I still haven’t comprehended what the hell is going on,” contestant Blake Moynes said. The contestants also get the chance to talk to Crawley and express their disappointment.

“I’ll apologize if I wasted your time. I’ll apologize if I hurt you,” Crawley tells the contestants as Harrison explains: “We have never dealt with anything like this in the history of our show.”

Adams then emerges from the swimming pool, and it looks like she will be the new Bachelorette in this strange turn of events. 

The Bachelorette airs Tuesdays on ABC.
