Bachelorette fans think Tayshia Adams is engaged after she shared multiple Instagrams with what looks like an engagement ring.
Tayshia explained the photos on The Ellen Degeneres Show, and says she simply enjoys wearing diamonds.
Since then, Tayshia's reflected on her Bachelorette journey and Reality Steve has spilled all the engagement tea.
Rumors have been swirling about Tayshia Adams being engaged ever since the current Bachelorette posted a few pics to her Instagram Stories on Tuesday, Dec. 2. The finale is Dec. 22, and soon Bachelor Nation will know what those sparkly rings really mean. (CAN'T. WAIT.)
The reality TV star, 30, has continued to explain away the engagement rumors every time they pop up, but Reality Steve has new intel (more on that in a sec). Now, she's opening up about her feelings about her journey's conclusion on Instagram. "I’ll have to be the first one to admit that this whole reality tv thing isn’t easy. Being only human, sometimes all of this is taxing. The last couple weeks have been a rollercoaster to say the least!," Tayshia wrote in the caption of a new post.
She continued: "Watching the last few episodes, I’ve been reliving so much of what made this experience challenging. It’s like I’ve been going through elements of it all a second time around. That being said, at times the ranging emotions have taken a toll on me and other times brought me so much hope, cheer and joy, all in real time. But I genuinely gave it my all during the whole experience and will take something away from each of the men I had the opportunity to meet and connect with."
Tayshia wrapped up her recap: "It's crazy to think the end is near, but I am excited for you to see where my heart leads me. While bittersweet, I know this is just the end of one chapter, and I can't wait to see where life takes me next."
So, is Tayshia Adams engaged now... or what?
With that emotional update, this seems like a good time to review the evidence.
On Dec. 9, Tayshia made her case for not being engaged on The Ellen DeGeneres Show. "All I have to say is I’m just a girl… if I want to drink my coffee with some diamonds on, I can do that," she told the talk show host. "I like to wear diamonds all the time!" You can't argue with that.
But just a few days before, on Dec. 6, Tayshia captioned a poolside close-up: "Think about all of the beauty you would not have seen if you had allowed yourself to stop fighting; if you had allowed yourself to give up. ✨." That's all well and good, but what really matters here is her hidden left hand. Take a look and tell me the hand placement doesn't seem intentional.
One commenter wrote, "Show the ring 💍."
Well, Tayshia did show a ring in the original photos posted on Dec. 2. The Click Bait With Bachelor Nation podcast host wears what *appears* to be a diamond ring on her left hand, according to ET.
Tayshia shared a photo of herself making iced coffee in a wine glass, and her followers spotted something sparkly on her ring finger.
Then, she followed it up with another pic of herself recording her podcast, where she is holding her iced coffee and you can definitely see there is a ring on her finger. (Yes, that finger.)
Before the ring photos, Tayshia said she wouldn't get engaged on The Bachelorette.
On Dec. 2, she shared on the Bachelor Happy Hour podcast that she didn't think she would get engaged during her season. "I told them, 'I don’t think I’m gonna get engaged at the end of this, I think I might just leave with a boyfriend or whatever,' and they [understood] and said, 'We’re not gonna pressure you to do anything," Tayshia explained on the pod, per Us Weekly. "You do what your heart wants, so I didn’t ever really feel that pressure of, 'Oh my God, I need to find a husband right now.' So I just kind of lived my journey how I wanted to."
That said, Tayshia did add that she felt like she had enough time to get to know the guys and if she was really into any of them. "I feel like the guys really showed who they were and what they had to offer, and I did the same. When you know you know, I think," Tayshia said. "Either you have an attraction to someone or you don’t, and I feel like that’s what I kept leaning into. I don’t really think I had too short of a time. That was a fear that I had."
Worth noting: Tayshia did tell Ellen that Zac Clark was "husband material."
Spoiler alert: Reality Steve says Tayshia did get engaged on The Bachelorette.
Bachelor spoilers blogger Reality Steve revised his finale spoilers and said Tayshia ended up with a ring on her finger from Zac. "I’m pretty sure they’re engaged and still together. Whew," he wrote on his blog.
Reality Steve explained what he's learned over the past season: "I said at the time there was no engagement and I didn’t know what their relationship status was now. I still don’t have a solid answer to that, but, I think after watching last night’s episode a few things are pretty clear: 1) it’s definitely Zac and 2) I’d be really shocked if she didn’t get engaged at the end of this thing. So that bit [of] info was probably wrong."
He continued: "Tayshia has said the word husband and engaged so many times the last few episodes, it really makes no sense to get to the end and NOT have that. Hell, that’s only happened twice in the last almost 30 or so seasons–Juan Pablo and Colton’s. I just don’t see that happening here. So she definitely picked Zac and good chance they’re engaged. And if that’s the case, I highly doubt they’ve called off their engagement some time in the last 3 months. So if you’re asking me what I think happens tonight, there’s your answer. Picked Zac, engaged, and still engaged to this day. Just wish I could’ve been more confident all season to have been telling you that."
And, previously engaged Bachelorettes don't get to wear their ring all the time while the show is still airing, per Reality Steve. However, he says they get the bling for Happy Couple Weekends. "I can’t imagine she’d be that stupid to take a pic with her ring on if she’s engaged," he wrote. "But, we’ve seen people spoil it in the past, so I guess it can’t be that unbelievable."
