Tayshia Adams will be receiving an overnight Fantasy Suite date with Colton Underwood during the next episode of The Bachelor, which airs Monday, March 4 at 8/7c on ABC. The two are both visibly smitten with each other, and many viewers are crossing their fingers that Underwood picks Adams at the end of the show.
Read on for more information on Adams and Underwood’s relationship. This is also your MAJOR SPOILER ALERT! Proceed at your own caution if you are not caught up on season 23. Here’s what you need to know about Adams and Underwood:
1. They Enjoy Going on Adventurous Dates, Including Bungee Jumping & Skydiving
Underwood has a taste for the California ladies, and Adams is no exception. She’s a phlebotomist who volunteers at her church and loves a good wine tasting. She can’t stand people who chew with their mouths open and was a Girl Scout for 12 years. She recently completed a mission trip in Africa for her church, and is proud to consider herself a woman of faith.
Adams made it this far on the show, so her personality, taste for adventure, and sweet disposition have definitely made an impact on Underwood. The couple has been enjoying some very adventurous dates over the last few episodes, including bungee jumping and skydiving, despite both Underwood and Adams’ fear of heights.
2. Adams Thanked Underwood on Instagram For Helping Her Realize Her Worth as a Woman
Adams is head-over-heels for Underwood, and expressed her feelings about this season’s bachelor on Instagram in late January. She mentioned how her 1-on-1 bungee-jumping date with Underwood changed her perspective on life, how she reestablished herself as a woman of faith, and how she is no longer “ashamed” of her divorce.
“I owe this revelation to Colton, as he’s the one who challenged me out of my comfort zone and pushed me to want to be the best version of myself,” she wrote on Instagram. “He didn’t just listen to my story, but he comforted, empathized, and respected me, and those are qualitIes [sic] of an amazing man!”
3. Adams Was in a Relationship With a Model Named Chase Two Weeks Before She Tried Out For The Bachelor
Gossip king and Bachelor aficionado Reality Steve noted that Adams was married once before, to a man named Josh Bourelle. According to Radar, in court papers obtained from Superior Court of Orange County in California, Bourelle filed for divorce from Tayshia Adams on October 11, 2017 after only one year and six months of marriage, citing irreconcilable differences.
Although Adams isn’t the first divorced contestant to appear on the show, Reality Steve noticed that Adams was dating a model named Chase very shortly before she tried out for the show. According to the Inquisitr, she was on vacation with Chase in the Bahamas literally two weeks before trying out for the show, and dropped the news to him right before she left, which left him stunned and taken off guard. It doesn’t seem as though Underwood either knows or cares about Chase though, considering she’s made it so far on the show. However, it did raise some big questions for fans about Adam’s intentions in joining Colton’s Bachelor season.
4. A Short & Hilarious Outtake of Their Hometown Date Shows Adam’s Accidentally Smacking Underwood’s Head off The Car Window
While Adams drove a blindfolded Underwood to the skydiving venue, she apparently was reassuring Underwood that she was an “excellent driver,” and that he doesn’t need to worry, just as his head smacks into the window. The show’s Twitter page posted the hilarious outtake, and Adams also uploaded the clip to her Instagram page with the caption “but did you die!?!”
Just a warning: the following fact is a MAJOR BACHELOR SPOILER, so proceed at your own risk if you don’t want anything ruined for you.
