If you thought the Clare-Tayshia switch was wild, wait until you read The Bachelorette finale 2020 spoilers for Tayshia’s winner.
The Bachelorette season 16 finale airs on Tuesday, December 22, which means that we still have time until we learn which contestant wins Tayshia Adams’ season. But for those who can’t wait, Reality Steve has already revealed Tayshia’s winner—and the spoilers that lead to her twist-filled finale. However, before we dive into Tayshia’s finale, let’s recap what happened so far that led us to this point in Bachelor Nation history.
The Bachelorette season 16 premiered in October 2020 with Clare Crawley, the runner-up from Juan Pablo Galavis‘ season of The Bachelor in 2014, as the lead. However, after the first episode, it was clear that Clare only had eyes on one contestant: Dale Moss. After four episodes and three rose ceremonies, Clare quit the show to be with Dale, who proposed to her before they left. In came Tayshia Adams, the runner-up from Colton Underwood’s season of The Bachelor in 2019. Tayshia was a breath of fresh air for many of the contestants, who were able to shine without the threat of Dale. There’s been some mild drama so far (a.k.a. Bennett and Jordan’s feud), but that’s nothing compared to what happens in Tayshia’s finale. Ahead, read Reality Steve’s Bachelorette finale 2020 spoilers for Tayshia’s winner.
Brendan’s Parents Don’t Come to Hometown Dates
Since his first one-on-one date with Tayshia, Brendan Morais has been a frontrunner for her. But there’s drama ahead for him. In December 2020, Reality Steve reported that Brendan’s parents don’t come to Hometown Dates, which occurred a week after Brendan failed a lie detector test when he told Tayshia that he’s excited for her to meet his family. Instead of his parents, Brendan’s brother, Dan, sister in law, Christi, and niece Aliyah meet Tayshia.
Brendan Eliminates Himself
The massive twist from Tayshia’s season is that Brendan self-eliminates sometime in the final three. Tayshia’s final four are Ben, Brendan, Ivan and Zac. Ben is sent home in the final four. According to Reality Steve, Brendan eliminates himself because he’s not ready to commit to an engagement or another serious relationship after his divorce. As he explained to Tayshia in a one-on-one date, Brendan finalized his divorce from his ex-wife a year before he went on The Bachelorette. Brendan and Tayshia bonded over their shared experiences as divorced singles, so, of course, she was “distraught” when he sent himself home, according to Reality Steve.
Ben Comes Back
In the episode before the finale, Ben knocks on Tayshia’s door and tells her that he’s in love with her. Tayshia then leaves Ben in her room as she has a talk with the producers about the possibility of him coming back. Ben then rejoins the show and becomes Tayshia’s third finalist after Brendan self-elminates.
Ivan Is Eliminated in the Final 3
According to Reality Steve, Ivan is eliminated in the final three after Ben comes back to the competition. Ivan is eliminated in the final three rose ceremony after Tayshia gives roses to Zac and Ben. This means that Ivan doesn’t meet Tayshia’s family.
Ben Is Eliminated Again After Meeting Tayshia’s Family
Reality Steve reports that Tayshia’s winner is the only contestant who makes it to her final rose ceremony. According to the site, Ben is eliminated again in the final two after meeting Tayshia’s family and doesn’t attend the final rose ceremony with Zac.
Tayshia’s Winner Is Zac
Reality Steve reports that Tayshia’s winner is Zac. According to Reality Steve, Tayshia chose Zac because he opened up to her the most over the course of the show. So far, Zac has told Tayshia about his battle with a brain tumor, his sobriety after his fight with addiction, his divorce and how he’s cheated on a girlfriend (it was when he was in middle school, but still, he was honest.) Reality Steve also confirms that Zac and Tayshia are engaged and still together.
Zac & Tayshia May Not Last
Don’t be surprised if Zac and Tayshia don’t stay together. According to Reality Steve, sources have told him that Zac and Tayshia are either broken up or friends close to them are sure they won’t work out. All of this leads us to our next spoiler…
Brendan Was Tayshia’s First Choice
According to Reality Steve, Brendan was Tayshia’s first choice, which explains her reaction when he eliminated himself. Still, Tayshia chose Zac in the end, but given Reality Steve’s spoilers that Zac and Tayshia may not still be together, there’s a chance that she could reunite with Brendan post-show or on After the Final Rose. As Bachelor Nation members know, Tayshia broke up with John Paul Jones on Bachelor in Paradise season 6 in 2019, but asked to give their love another shot on After the Final Rose. The two didn’t work out, but their on-and-off relationship did mean that Tayshia isn’t above reconnecting with a Bachelor Nation ex.
