The Bachelorette COVID-19 is taking place with a "bubble" format at the La Quinta Resort in Palm Springs, California where all crew on set are wearing masks and being tested regularly. Now, People is reportnig that Crawley fell in love with one of her suitors after the pandemic delayed production in March.
"One of her potential guys found a way to get in touch with her and they began talking,. 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."
Enter Tayshia Adams, 29, a frontrunner on Colton Underwood's season and a fan favorite in Bachelor in Paradise. Although Tayshia Adams and Bachelor Nation have not made a statement, there is an extensive Reddit thread, and (deleted) tweet liked by Crawley about Adams being her successor and confirmation from People that Adams is "ready to go."
The next question is: who are the suitors? Will the show recast for Adams' part of the season? In July, Facebook released names of Crawley's 42 men ages 25-40, 17 were original suitors from the pre-COVID selections and 25 were new, excluding Crawley's mystery man and next bachelor Matt James. The premiere of Season 16 is has not been announced but it is expected to air by late September or early October.
