Warning: Spoilers for Season 16 of The Bachelorette are ahead!

When Clare Crawley "blew up The Bachelorette" (as Chris Harrison aptly said), to get engaged to contestant Dale Moss, Tayshia Adams was recruited to take over and give viewers a more traditional reality TV love story. 

Before she was the lead, the former phlebotomist was a finalist on Colton Underwood's season of The Bachelor. She also romanced John Paul Jones on Season 6 of Bachelor in Paradise in 2019.

After demonstrating that she was ready for love on multiple occasions in front of the cameras, Tayshia was an obvious choice to fill in for Clare. But, because she is set to romance Clare's former contestants in a compressed timeline, some viewers are concerned about how the season will end for Tayshia.

These are the essential Tayshia Adams spoilers for 'The Bachelorette' Season 16.

Of course, the speculation surrounding Tayshia's stint as the lead cannot be fully confirmed until the season concludes, but there are plenty of compelling rumors about how it all goes down for the Newport Beach resident. 

According to spoiler expert Reality Steve, when Tayshia does officially take over for Clare on the Nov. 10 episode of the show, she begins dating the 16 contestants who were left.

While many of them were happy to have a lead who was dedicated to the process of the show, for others, it was difficult to shift gears so quickly with a new person. 

Host Chris Harrison ultimately brings in four new guys who had not been on the show before: Noah Erb, Montel Hill, Spencer Robertson, and Peter Giannikopoulos.

Interestingly, Spencer is the recipient of Tayshia's first impression rose.

Reality Steve notes that Tayshia decides to cancel the first rose ceremony because she wants more of a chance to interact with the guys. 

The spoiler site claims that Tayshia's season unfolds in a similar way to the seasons before, but that the timeline is shorter.

Tayshia's final four guys are reportedly Brendan Morais, Ben Smith, Ivan Hall, and and Zac Clark.

Despite taping the show in an isolated area because of the COVID-19 pandemic, the final contestants' families are flown out for "hometown" dates.

Brendan will ultimately eliminate himself when his family does not come to the hometown date. According to Reality Steve, Brendan realizes that he is still reeling from his recent divorce, and he is not ready to jump into a serious relationship so quickly. 

This apparently proves to be a bit of a sticking point with Tayshia, who is a divorcee herself, because Brendan was the one she had forged the strongest connection with. 

Ivan also gets eliminated at around this time, but Reality Steve isn't confident yet about whether he leaves before or after Brendan. 

With Brendan and Ivan's eliminations, Tayshia's final two men end up being Zac and Ben.

Is Tayshia Adams engaged?

Though Tayshia's time as the lead is more conventional than Clare's was, Reality Steve reported that she does not get engaged at the end of her season — but there will definitely be a lot of drama. 

Her final pick does end up being Zac Clark, the 36-year-old addiction specialist, but the status of their relationship is unclear at this point. 

The Bachelorette airs on Tuesdays at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
