The Bachelorette 16 - Tayshia

The “Bachelorette” Tayshia – Episode 8 Recap, “Men Tell All” News, Update on Eazy, & Did Tayshia Spoil Her Own Season?

I wanted to bring up the “Men Tell All” right off the bat since we now have a date on when it’s airing. As I mentioned, the “Men Tell All” was filmed a couple weeks ago and they flew the guys out to Nemacolin to do it. None of Tayshia’s final four of Ivan, Brendan, Ben, or Zac were in attendance. I can also now report that, well, barely anyone was there. There were only 9 guys in attendance. I know of six who were definitely there: Jason, Yosef, Demar, Ed, Bennett, and Noah were for sure there. I don’t know who the others were. So a 9 person MTA with one guy who never even met Tayshia (Yosef), and one guy who barely met her and eliminated himself (Jason), just seems quite bizarre. But we’ll see how it goes. There’s always drama, we know that. And with Yosef there, and me already reporting that he didn’t take back his behavior, well, there’s some drama already. So now that we know the MTA airs on Monday, the 14th, that means three episodes will air after the MTA: the 15th, 21st, and 22nd (finale). I have no idea if they’re doing a live ATFR during this pandemic or not. I guess we’ll find out as we get closer to the finale and they send out a press release on what the finale will entail. But showing the MTA 3 episodes before the finale now makes sense because none of her final 4 are on the show. So it’s starting to at least make a little more sense.

Lets talk about Eazy real quick since there’s a story out there now that I linked to and tweeted out yesterday, which you can read here. I deleted the tweet because there was some things in the original story that weren’t supposed to be in there. I spoke to the accuser, and the author of the story on DM and it got cleared up. The basics of it are what you seen now in that first story. She spoke again with NZK legal counsel, who say they spoke with Eazy, and he says any activity between them was consensual, therefore the allegations are inconclusive. A few things here:

1. Of course he’s going to say that. What did you expect him to say?
2. What, that’s just the end of the investigation and because Eazy is off the show now, that’s it?
3. Isn’t their handling of this the exact reason why women are scared to come forward? For fear of being ignored and/or not believed?

So many things wrong with this whole scenario, but here’s where we’re at now. Eazy is no longer on the show. Seemingly the only thing in this franchise he could possibly be a part of in the future is BIP. Knowing that they will have FOUR DIFFERENT CASTS to choose from, if they STILL insist on casting Eazy for BIP, then they truly don’t take allegations seriously. They’ll have plenty of more qualified and better people to bring on BIP. You can leave Eazy out of it. He’s not a MUST have for any future BIP season. Not that hard. But we’ve got 6 months til that happens, so time will tell.

You see the little rose ceremony snafu one of the Bachelor IG accounts posted after last night’s episode that was immediately taken down? This picture was posted:

Seemingly, that’s a picture of who still has a rose after the next rose ceremony. 12 guys started last night’s episode, but there are only 7 in that picture. We know Eazy didn’t get one, we know Bennett loses out to Noah as well. Demar, Spencer, and Ed are all missing. I highly doubt they were off camera and just happened to randomly miss the picture. So we can now assume those will be the three eliminated at the rose ceremony once the next week’s episode happens. My original thought was 2 would be leaving and I knew one was Spencer. I assumed that Ed or Demar was the other one because I knew Noah and Blake made at least final 6. So Ed, Demar, Riley were the three I didn’t know what order they were eliminated, but now we know Ed, Demar, and Spencer are next week. Riley is most likely after that.

Of course, the other pic that everyone is talking about from yesterday is the one of Tayshia in her IG story, recording her “Click Bait” podcast, with seemingly an engagement ring on.

I was only asked about it 50 times yesterday. Here’s my response: I don’t know if it is or isn’t, or if it’s a ruse or what. But that’s not what I’ve been told all season. So if that’s an engagement ring, that’s news to me, because as far as I was told, there was no engagement at the end of this season. I can’t imagine she’d be that stupid to take a pic with her ring on if she’s engaged, but, we’ve seen people spoil it in the past, so I guess it can’t be that unbelievable. So we’ll see going forward exactly what that’s all about. All I can tell you is what I’ve been told. Do with that what you will.

While leads don’t get to have their engagement rings while the show is airing, that’s for in public. On Happy Couple weekends, yes, we’ve seen that numerous times in past seasons where at the finale we see footage of the previous few months of the final couple together and the girl is showing off the ring. But that ring is given to them before the weekend starts, it’s returned at the end of the weekend, and the couple is never let out in public. I was told yesterday there are those that are convinced Tayshia is engaged, this past weekend was a Happy Couple weekend which is why she has the ring on, and that she’s with Zac because he was the only one of her final four who didn’t post IG stories this past weekend verifying his location at home. Great. Don’t know that to tell you, but that’s not what I’ve been told happens this season. So let the conspiracy theories fly!

    You’re such a hater, Steve. Bennett clearly knows what he’s doing. He’s getting more screentime than 90% of the guys, even some guys that get 1-on-1 dates, every weak; he has more followers on Instagram than any other contestant this season. You can take him too seriously. You should know better than anyone that the way people appear on the show doesn’t reflect who they are IRL.

    Tayshia should dial it back. She is black. Be black. The black contestants don’t have a chance. She is just patronizing the black guys. Her kiss is tongue deep with white guys but surface and quick with black guys.

    She obviously tries really hard to be white. As a black woman, it is sad to see the black contestants compete for her. When she knows and most know she only wants someone white. it’s boring seeing another black bachelorette who only wants white. I hope Matt Jones gives everyone a chance!!!

    Will you say it louder for those in the back??? I completely agree with you 110%!!!! When I originally heard she was taking over for Clare, the first thing I said was, “But Tayshia is only attracted to white men!” The way she did Easy was brutal….but it was expected and I swear I nailed her exit line to him before she even said it. You’re spot on!!!

    And what is so sad is in anybody’s world she’s a black woman.

    I don’t care how she considers herself mixed It just hurts my heart to see how those black men actually believe they’re falling in love with her and she is not giving them a flying flip. She ’s just following the ABC process in hopes that it will take her further than what she is was as a phlebotomist. Now she considers herself a TV personality but it’s really really sad that people are still like this in the world. Lost Identity Syndrome (LIS). My acronym.

    I truly hope another twist will be the remaining black men will catch on if they have not already and see she very seldom gives roses to black men and all of them walk off.

    The ones who are lighter skin are tolerable to her but still not white. Just pleasing the black audience but her history and ex husband are white. All the men in Bachelor in Paradise were white!

    I have no problem as a black women with interracial dating but Ann a firm believer you don’t have to lose your identity to do so!!!

    When Ivan the mixed Filipino guy started crying and tearing up about George Floyd and Black Lives Matter she said nothing because she either she can’t relate or she doesn’t want to show the viewers who she is or not. I am glad they gave her some class in her attire this time. Her chest was always out in BIP and the Bachelor. It looks like she was leading with her chest.

    Just overall a sad and disappointing season.

    p.s. I heard she protested with BLM. But it may be her white friends did it so she followed suit.

    One thing I can say is they must take acting classes in order for her to pretend and make the black men think that she likes them look closely at the way she kisses them and hug them as a passing friends not someone she’s interested in marrying. But as we can see the selection of me and they’ve given her have lots of baggage from the past and in a black dating scenario she would dismiss the man immediately.

    Still not sure I understand all the upset about Eazy. A woman accused him of sexual assault, he denied it, no investigation was conducted, no charges were pressed, no conviction. Is he supposed to be shunned the rest of his life? A guy in my son’s fraternity was accused of rape at a party, and he claimed it was consensual. Turns out the woman was just telling a story because her boyfriend found out she slept with this other guy. She did come forward and retract the accusation, but what if she hadn’t? False accusations DO happen, maybe not the greater percentage of accusations are false, but they do happen. If we’re supposed to believe all women, all the time, then we are about to have (another) rapist in the White House, as Tara Reade accused Hiden’ Biden of rape. He denies it, he was never charged, there was no investigation and most people are perfectly happy to accept that.

    ladyjane, I totally agree with you about Eazy and can’t believe Steve won’t let this go. IF this accusation came about for something he supposedly did on the show then yes it would be ABC’s responsibility to get the the bottom of it, like they did that BIP season when a girl was possibly taken advantage of while inebriated. They shut filming down. But this was before the show, had nothing to do with the show, and should have been reported to the police, not ABC. This accuser is taking the easy way out (no pun intended) and trying to get Eazy crucified in the court of public opinion, and that’s not cool.

    I do however agree with him about Bennett. The guy is an immature douche. Given his poor spelling skills I have to believe his parents bought his Harvard degree, or had some other influence there. So glad she kept cute, young Noah.
