SPOILERS: Stop reading if you do not want spoilers on season 16 of The Bachelorette.
While viewers are still watching Tayshia Adams’ journey to love play out on The Bachelorette, Reality Steve has already revealed who received her final rose. Though, he had already provided an ominous warning about whether it ends with a happily ever after.
“Next week we get Tayshia coming in and, well, if you want a ‘Bachelorette’ that’s basically a 180 from Clare, here it comes. That’s neither good or bad. I’m just telling you, it’s gonna be different. And by the way, you better enjoy the Clare/Dale love story this season – because that’s the only one you’re getting,” Bachelor Nation spoiler aficionado, Reality Steve, wrote on his website.
In a season that continues to be unprecedented, Clare Crawley exited early engaged to Dale Moss. In her stead, they brought in Adams as the series’ first ever replacement lead. This comes amid a season marred by production delays during the COVID-19 pandemic and filming resuming at the La Quinta Resort and Club in a “bubble” with all cast and crew having quarantined.
Despite this warning, and the fact fans are still largely getting to know this season’s men, it has been revealed Adams will leave in a relationship with Zac Clark, from Haddonfield, New Jersey. Though, the duo did not leave engaged.
Clark Is a Recovering Addict From New Jersey
The co-founder of Release Recovery in New York, Clark is himself a recovering addict.
“After putting his party days behind him and becoming sober himself, Zac C. started a recovery program focused on helping reintegrate people back into the world after rehab, which has become his life’s purpose,” his ABC profile states.
He revealed during a forum at Alvernia University his years-long battle with alcohol and drug addiction, reported Reading Eagle. He said it started during a Christmas Eve Party with a “swig of Miller High Life,” but it got to the point where he was trying to convince doctors he needed surgery to get access to drugs.
The publication also revealed he was eventually arrested, writing, “An eight-month drug binge in which he shot heroin intravenously, smoked crack and did ‘whippets’ – inhaling bursts of nitrous oxide for a brief high – ended with his arrest for possession of crack and driving while intoxicated.”
Clark Is Divorced
Viewers have learned that Brendan Morais has been divorced, but so has Clark, a point of commonality with Adams.
Adams first revealed her divorce on Colton Underwood’s season of The Bachelor. She has since revealed the marriage ended, despite her wanting to work it out, after her ex-husband was unfaithful.
Not much is currently known about Clark’s marriage, but the Reading Eagle did write he was “a married college graduate who was only in his 20s” during the height of his addiction.
The Status of Their Relationship Is Not Known
Reality Steve revealed Adams’ final four men are Ivan Hall, Brendan Morais, Ben Smith and, of course, Clark.
According to his sources, Adams’ was heartbroken when Morais decided to self-eliminate after his family did not participate in the revamped versions of hometown dates, all taking place at the La Quinta Resort and Club.
Smith and Clark are the final two, with Reality Steve reporting Clark opening up about his feelings more.
“As for where they stand now, that’s anybody’s guess,” wrote Reality Steve’s Steve Carbone. “Some people have told me they aren’t together, some have told me they still are but it’s not that solid, and some have said it’s never gonna last. She’s a SoCal girl who wants to be an influencer. He runs a sober living facility in NY. So that’s where we are right now.”
Adams and Clark’s relationship will continue to unfold Tuesdays on ABC at 8/7c.
