Fans were super excited for the penultimate episode of “The Bachelorette” Monday, as Tayshia Adams was down to her final three suitors. Zac Clark, Ivan Hall and Brendan Morais started the two-part finale all vying for love, but after some stressful engagement ring shopping, one contestant called it quits.
Morais, who had been married once before, realized that he was not prepared to propose to Adams.
“I want a wife and kids and a family more than anything on the face of this Earth,” he said. “But then coming to the realization that there's a big part of me that's still broken.”
While Adams was understanding, she was also devastated as he left.
“I really thought I was gonna end up with Brendan,” she said. “He's been a person every single day that I've been like, ‘It's Brendan.’ Every. Single. Day.”
TAYSHIA ADAMS: I think he was the first guy I started falling in love with. I mean, after our first one-on-one I was like, Brendan's it. Because he literally is it. Like I love everything about him.

- Fans did not see Brendan's cold feet coming. But many of them respected him for being honest, with one fan tweeting, "Good for Brendan saying the truth and not faking it till the end." While another person wrote, "Can we just applaud Brendan for being a man and admitting that he needed more time to heal before the fantasy suite." That being said, his admission still rocked Tayshia.
TAYSHIA ADAMS: I really thought I was going to end up with Brendan. He's been a person every single day that I've been like, "it's Brendan". Every single day.
- So what started out as a date picking out engagement rings, ended with a tearful goodbye.
TAYSHIA ADAMS: Bye.
- Bye, Tayshia.
TAYSHIA ADAMS: (CRYING) Oh my God.
