Tayshia Adams Admits To Wearing Wedding Dress, Saying ‘I Love You’ On ‘The Bachelorette’

ABC’s “The Bachelor” has been a whirlwind in just four episodes with Clare Crawley this season, and with Tayshia Adams taking over and being the new “Bachelorette,” viewers are in for a few more surprises before the season ends. 

Adams was first seen on Colton Underwood’s season and made it to the final three before she got her heart broken and was sent home. She also found love on “Bachelor in Paradise” with John Paul Jones, but that ended shortly after the show concluded.

The 30-year-old has taken over for Crawley, after the 39-year-old found love with Dale Moss within three episodes and got engaged on the fourth. Adams will have 16 of the same men and will begin her journey on Tuesday, but with a few new men as well. 

There’ll be a few new faces joining the cast and it’ll get really interesting as soon as that happens, Adams hinted in an interview with Lauren Zima from ET. 

Since the show’s already been filmed and Adams knows her fate, she’s able to give viewers insight into what she went through during her season. 

Throughout Crawley’s episodes, viewers could see a few guys that were there to stir up the drama that she didn’t warn her successor about. Adams explained to Jimmy Kimmel that she wished Clare would have warned her about them before taking over. 

Even though there are a few guys that make her cry, she alludes to a happy ending, as well as, a happy season. 

She told Zima, “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.”

She also admitted that she did say “I love you” to a few men during the stint of her season, and at one point, did don a wedding dress as well, according to ET. 

“The Bachelorette” airs Tuesday, Nov. 10 on ABC at 8 p.m. EST.

“It was my first time out of my house in quarantine, and we went to a winery and we went with all of our friends — all of us got tested — our family, our best man, maid of honor,” the Modern Family alum continued. “I brought a white dress and a veil I got on Etsy and my bridesmaids got a real wedding bouquet and surprised me and we took fake wedding pictures for fun!”

In the photos shared via Instagram, the couple are all smiles looking at each other. Hyland wore a large hat with a veil attached to the back along with a white dress, while the Bachelorette alum, 36, wore a white button-down shirt and khakis.

“A couple, a pandemic, & a postponed wedding: A series. We were supposed to get married today,” she wrote via Instagram at the time. “Instead… we took pictures and drank wine. I love you to Pluto & back.”

Adams and the New York native went public with their relationship in 2017. In May, he told Us Weekly that the pair have only grown closer during quarantine because they haven’t been spending time with anyone else.

“If anything, it’s, like, reconfirmed that I made a good decision,” the Worst Cooks in America alum said. “I mean, it’s obviously been — this whole thing has been scary and anxiety-ridden just because you don’t know the future — but it’s been nice spending a lot of time with her.”

The duo celebrated the one-year anniversary of the day they got engaged in July.

“One year engaged to my best friend,” the Wedding Year actress wrote via Instagram at the time. “So grateful to be quarantined with the love of my life. One day we’ll get married, but for now, I’ll take eating junk food and Netflix all day every day.”

The Bachelor in Paradise alum also posted, sharing two photos from their Fiji engagement. “A year ago today I asked my best friend to marry me. Best decision of my life,” the bartender captioned the pics. “Happy engagement anniversary @sarahhyland, I love you +1 anything you say.”
