Not to start drama, but...I have some questions for Bachelor in Paradise alumni Mike Johnson and Tayshia Adams. Last we heard from the two of them, which was literally this past Friday, Mike was starting something special with pop star Demi Lovato, while Tayshia was in a happy long-distance relationship with goofball John Paul Jones. Except, these two were just spotted looking pretty cozy at the iHeartMusic Festival in Las Vegas.
Mike and Tayshia attended the event with their fellow BiP contestants Dean Unglert and Caelynn Miller-Keyes (who are dating but don’t follow each other on Instagram...) as well as ex-Bachelor Ben Higgins and his girlfriend Jessica Clarke. John Paul Jones and Demi Lovato were not at the event.
Here are a couple of pics of the pair from the night:
Of course, friends embracing and dancing together is not inherently suspicious, but Tayshia has already been accused by Reality Steve of faking her relationship with John Paul Jones, who she originally rejected while in Paradise. In response to the spoiler master saying, “Tayshia and JPJ are not together anymore,” Tayshia hit the comments of her own Insta to refute his claims, saying, “Guess what...he’s wrong!”
Meanwhile, at the festival, Mike told E! that Demi is the only woman he’s dating ATM. “It’s just Demi. That’s the only person I’m talking to," he said. “I’m just getting to know Demi. I think she’s absolutely fantastic and I don’t want no pressure on her, no pressure on me, we’re just trying to get to know each other. That’s all.”
Still, he did feel he should have been cast as The Bachelor over Pilot Pete. Here’s what he had to say about it to Entertainment Tonight:
"After 24 Bachelors, a black Bachelor should have been cast. But at the same time, ABC has been successful. They know what they’re doing for their audience. They know what they’re looking for. I wasn’t the guy they were looking for at the moment.”
He also said he would have “loved to have been the Bachelor.”
All this begs a few questions: Is Mike really that into Demi? Is Tayshia really dating John Paul Jones? How many windmill jokes will we have to suffer through on the next season of The Bachelor? You tell me.
