“I may be stronger against the boys in that I need them a little more than Hannah,” she said in March 2019, before the 25-year-old election queen’s season aired. “She’s quite nice and doesn’t take herself too seriously. The boys should definitely be much older, I would tell you that much. ‘

Us weekly confirmed earlier this month that Tayshia is getting a chance to find love with Clare Crawley‘s contestants after the 39-year-old hairdresser chose not to end her season because she was already in love with one of her suitors. Now fans will watch Clare’s short journey in Season 16 before Tayshia takes over. She is currently filming at La Quinta Resort in Palm Springs.

She continued, “I should clarify that I thought Hannah was an adult, but she was definitely in the season. That was a cool transformation that we saw from the beginning. As for me, I think everything happens for a reason. I pray for everything that happens in my life, especially for big decisions, and if it was intended it would have happened. The same goes for Colton. I’m okay with it. It would have been really nice to have The bachelorette, but I’m really happy with where I am. ‘

The phlebotomist noted at the time that competition was continuing The Bachelor serves as a Bachelorette audition.

“These producers can see everything,” said Tayshia. “We film 24 hours a day, so it’s not really a good audition or interview because they already understand us well. It really isn’t as juicy as you think. ‘

Tayshia was previously married to Joshua Bourelle for less than two years. They divorced in April 2018. After participating in the Colton season, she was linked to Bachelor in Paradise season 6 costar John Paul Jones.
