13: ...Bachelorette Tayshia Adams on Finding Love, Her Dream Wedding with Zac, and on Being Biracial
Updated: Feb 22
Today Zuri is joined by the lovely Tayshia Adams who is the most recent star of ABC’s hit show The Bachelorette and the franchise’s first-ever biracial lead. Tayshia first appeared on The Bachelor in 2019, winning over Bachelor Nation, and quickly became a fan-favorite. She then returned to TV on the sixth season of Bachelor in Paradise before becoming the lead on The Bachelorette, after Clare, of course, peaced out early to be with Dale. Tayshia ended her season with a ring! An engagement to her now fiancé, Zac Clark and now she's officially living on the East Coast!!
In today's episode, Tayshia opens up to Zuri, like never before. If you've been curious about who Tayshia is, who she isn't, what nickname she hates, we got all the details and so much more!!
Get ready for a hilarious chat about Tayshia's secret fear (it's Zuri's too!), what sexy means to her, finding love and herself after divorce, the journey to embracing her biracial identity as an Afro Latina... and wedding details!! From Tayshia’s perfect bridal dress, to where she wants her & Zac to be in 5 years (does it involve kids?? We’ve got the answer!).
Make sure you can come back next week, cuz we're teaching our Hot Happy Mess crew, How to Manifest Your Dream Partner and Creating Your Ideal Life!
