Bachelorette Clare Crawley is ‘engaged to Dale Moss’

Tayshia Adams will be replacing Clare Crawley on season 16 of The Bachelorette, multiple reports have confirmed. 

The news comes after it was reported that Bachelorette star Clare Crawley is now engaged to contestant Dale Moss.

The 39-year-old hairstylist found love fast during her season, according to insiders who spoke to People. 

‘One of her potential guys found a way to get in touch with her and they began talking,’ an insider said.

‘By the time filming officially began, they were basically already in love. No one else stood a chance. It just became so obvious from her subsequent few dates that her heart wasn’t in it and she just wasn’t feeling it. Then she said she wanted out.’ 

According to Life & Style, Clare was so smitten with Dale that she threatened to ‘quit the show after only 12 days of filming’ because she had ‘already fallen in love’ with the former NFL player.

‘She told producers she no longer wanted to participate in the show,’ the source told Life & Style, and even ‘refused to come out of her room’ during filming, which began in early July.

Producers were said to be ‘blindsided’ by the situation and were ‘scrambling to figure out what to do.’

But it looks like the brains behind Bachelor Nation have figured out a fix.

‘Tayshia was game and ready to go,’ a source tells PEOPLE. ‘What remains to be seen is if more men will be brought in now to give Tayshia a full roster of suitors.’

Meanwhile producers are reportedly reaching out to backup contestants on the show, according to Us Weekly.

‘Last weekend, producers reached out to backup Bachelorette contestants who had been vetted for Clare’s season but were ultimately not cast to film at La Quinta [resort],’ an insider said. ‘When producers reached back out, out of the blue, it was very apparent that something had happened with production.’ 

Tayshia ex Colton Underwood reacted to her new gig on Twitter, sharing People’s announcement along with: ‘Congrats @TayshiaAdams — good luck and I hope you find yourself a better kisser [wink].’

Adams was runner-up during the former NFL draftee’s season as suitor. 

Bachelor In Paradise favorite Demi Burnett shared her theory about who was stepping in for Clare during an Instagram Live chat with Reality Steve this past Friday, saying all signs pointed to pal Tayshia. 

‘What the f**k is going on with your friend Tayshia?’ Reality Steve asked Demi during their Friday talk.

The reality star said she was ‘not in the loop’ since she had been on vacation, but she admitted to trying to text her friend, though none of her messages went through.

After the reality show blogger asked if the messages on her iPhone had been turning green, Demi said they had, suggesting Tayshia’s phone might have been turned off for an extended period. 

Text messages sent from one iPhone to another normally show up as blue, but message sent to iPhones that are turned off or without service show up as green.

Bachelorette fans suggested that Tayshia might be filming at the moment, as Bachelor producers take phones away from contestants once filming begins.

‘This is the most random thing!’ Demi replied to the speculation. ‘She was wonderful [on Bachelor In Paradise] and I became really good friends with her and I love her so much.’

Clare’s season already got off to a rocky start when coronavirus forced the show to postpone shooting.  

Crawley has been quarantining at the opulent La Quinta resort where the entire season was set to take place due to COVID-19 fears.

She and the suitors and crew had all been quarantining at the hotel prior to the start of last month.

And while it looks like she’s found her happy ending, insiders say that’s only half the saga.

‘There’s more to the story than just [Clare] falling for someone and not wanting to see what else could happen with other men,; a source teased People.
