What seasons of The Bachelor has Tayshia Adams appeared on?
Bachelor Nation fans first met Tayshia on Colton Underwood’s season of The Bachelor.
Tayshia made it to Colton’s final two, but the hunk ultimately chose Cassie Randolph.
She then went on to appear in Bachelor in Paradise where she hit it off with contestant John Paul Jones.
Tayshia and John Paul Jones began dating while in Mexico during their Bachelor in Paradise stint.
There was a lot of speculation about who broke up with who, but apparently it was a mutual decision according to the pair.
After their breakup, Tayshia went to visit John in Maryland to try and mend things.
Rumors swirled around that John relocated to Los Angeles to be near Tayshia, who resided in Newport Beach, California.
In an episode of the Bachelor Happy Hour podcast, Tayshia told host Rachel Lindsay and guest co-host Becca Kufrin that John moved to California by his own doing.
“He moved here because he wanted to be an actor and because he was getting auditions and it was just easier for him to attend those as opposed to flying out.
Ultimately, their breakup was addressed on her Instagram six weeks after the Bachelor in Paradise reunion episode.
“I know you guys have been asking about John and I recently, and as much as I like to keep my personal life private, I realize you have all watched and been a part of our journey from the beginning.
“Therefore, to stay true to that, I need to be open and honest with you in order to heal and move on.
“John and I had something incredibly special. We fell for each other in Paradise, and everything was a whirlwind after that.
“When the show ended, I truly went back to Maryland to see if what we had was something we could build on without cameras, a production crew, and without feeling any pressure: to simply figure things out on our own terms.
“We are the best of friends and will continue to remain in each other’s life because regardless of the situation, we make each other happy,” she concluded.
What does Tayshia Adams do for a living?
Tayshia is a phlebotomist, meaning she’s trained to draw blood for purposes like research, testing, and donations.
In her intro video for season 23 of The Bachelor, she says: “I’m a phlebotomist, so I actually love to poke people’s veins and draw their blood, so I’m probably looking at your veins when I first meet you.”
She got her Bachelor of Science degree in biology medical science from Concordia University in 2012.
As of last year, Tayshia declared she was no longer practicing phlebotomoy.
“I’m not practicing phlebotomy anymore. I don’t know if I’ll go back into medicine,” Tayshia told Vulture in 2019.
“As much as I love it and went to school for it, my passion has always been in real estate, development, interior design and architecture,” she added.
“I think I’m going to gravitate toward that. I’m currently working at an interior design firm, and I hope this blossoms and opens doors for my career. You’ll see me out there. I’m sure you will!”
Since then, she also has worked as a fitness instructor for SoulCycle.
She is also making money from her sponsorships and brand ambassador work on Instagram.
Who does Tayshia end up with on the Bachelorette?
“I was told Zac C. was the one who opened up to her the most and professed his love, whereas it was much tougher for Ben, so ultimately she picked Zac,” Steve spilled.
Are Tayshia and Zac still together?
There have been mixed reports if the duo were still an item or if their brief fling had already ended.
“Some people have told me they aren’t together, some have told me they still are but it’s not that solid,” Reality Steve wrote.
He continued: “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.
