As a long-time viewer and fan of the Bachelor franchise, I was immediately drawn to Tayshia Adams when she first appeared on Colton‘s season in 2019. Her warm smile, witty sense of humor, and wisdom beyond her years left me rooting for her then and always. Like so many others, I was heartbroken when she didn‘t end up with Colton but knew this wouldn‘t be the last we saw of the effervescent Tayshia.
Early Life and Background
Tayshia Adams was born in Santa Ana, California to a close-knit family. Her father is African American and her mother is Mexican and Irish, a biracial mix that influenced Tayshia‘s outlook on life from a young age. She has said her parents were strict yet loving, instilling strong values through her childhood.
Family means everything to Tayshia, who remains extremely close with her parents and siblings. She has gotten even several tattoos dedicated to family members. Her faith was also hugely important growing up, with church and youth group being central in her life.
After graduating high school, Tayshia attended Concordia University, playing basketball through college while earning her biology degree. Her first jobs after graduation included working as a phlebotomist and in pharmaceutical sales. However, her true passion lay in real estate, as she loved touring homes with her dad growing up.
Tayshia got her real estate license in her 20s and relished helping families find their dream homes. She later become a successful realtor around Newport Beach and enjoyed the flexibility it gave her to travel and spend time with loved ones.
Stepping into the Spotlight
In 2018, Tayshia decided to step outside her comfort zone and try out for The Bachelor. This was a bold move for the usually private Tayshia, but the adventure seeker in her wanted to take a chance at finding love. Of course, I adored watching her sit down for that first limo entrance in a red jumpsuit that matched her fiery, spirited personality.
On Colton‘s season, America fell in love with Tayshia right alongside the Bachelor himself. She immediately stood out for her emotional maturity, values, and communicating clearly about what she wanted in a relationship. Her confidence shone as she navigated drama in the house while staying true to herself.
I‘ll never forget watching Tayshia share her powerful story about divorce on her first one-on-one date. She spoke openly about a painful time, but maintained hope of finding a loving partner. Her resilience and optimism even through heartbreak is so inspiring.
Post-Bachelor, I cheered seeing Tayshia as the bartender dishing out advice on Bachelor in Paradise. On what was a rocky season, she was a bright spot spreading joy. As expected, men flocked to her left and right, including John Paul Jones who captured her attention for a time. But ultimately, Tayshia knew in her heart she needed to move on solo from Paradise.
Taking the Lead
That memorable moment when Chris Harrison announced Tayshia as the new Bachelorette, Bachelor Nation rejoiced! She really is the total package – stunning, sincere, mature, smart, fun. I knew Tayshia would thrive with her own season.
Watching her as the lead, Tayshia did not disappoint. She weathered shakeups with the pandemic and Clare‘s early departure with grace. Despite the unusual circumstances, her top priority remained focusing on the men there and giving them a real chance.
Tayshia gave her all to each relationship, keeping an open mind and giving phenomenal advice. She made the men feel comfortable being vulnerable sharing their stories. Her emotional maturity and questioning helped identify who shared her hopes for the future.
Ultimately, her connection with contestant Zac Clark felt like a perfect match. Their chemistry jumped off the screen and they both clearly valued faith, family, service and finding a partner. When Zac got down on one knee in that dreamy desert scene, I admit I teared up a bit seeing Tayshia so happily accept.
Even after the couple parted ways amicably in 2021, Tayshia has not stopped believing in love. She remains open to whatever the future brings next. I admire her resilience and commitment to always working on personal growth.
Why I Stan Tayshia
What I admire most about Tayshia is how she radiates warmth and positivity, even in challenging circumstances. Her empathy, emotional intelligence and maturity are rare. She offers compassion and encouragement not just to romantic prospects but friends, family and even strangers as well.
Tayshia stays grounded in her faith and close circle. She takes time away from the spotlight to volunteer with charities, spend time with her nieces and nephews, go to church. Her life is more than surface-level glam.
At her core, Tayshia is funny, smart, generous. She loves trying new restaurants, running on the beach, traveling to learn about new cultures. Despite fame, she remains the same real, humble girl trying her best and supporting others.
The Bachelorette did not change who Tayshia is, it just gave America the chance to see her beautiful spirit shine. There‘s no doubt in my mind even greater things await Tayshia. I feel blessed to continue cheering her on in this next chapter of life and love.
