The Bachelorette 16 - Tayshia

(SPOILER) Tayshia’s Hometown Date Episode Tonight, & Everything I’ve Been Told About the Ending

Here are the spoilers for tonight’s episode…

On the press release for tonight’s show, here’s what was said:

“One man treats Tayshia to a small-town carnival, but when she meets the man’s family, will they allay her fears about the guy being ready to propose? She collaborates with another bachelor, who goes all out to impress her, on designing a pair of sneakers together. Although the man’s family is skeptical of their relationship, will they change their minds when they see the couple together? Then, Tayshia receives a cooking lesson from “one of the greatest chefs in the world.” The man is initially disappointed when he discovers a key person in his life won’t be able to meet Tayshia, but there is a huge surprise for him before the end of the evening. The last man realizes that he is in love with the Bachelorette but will he be able to share those feelings at the most crucial time of their journey?

First date is with Brendan. At first his 10 year old niece Aliyah joins them for the carnival. Then his brother Dan and sister-in-law Christi join later.

Second date is Zac. It’s a New York City themed date where they hail a taxi, design sneakers together (never shown), and have dinner in a NY themed area. It’s his parents and brother that join them in the evening.

Third date is Ivan. This “greatest chef in the world” is his little niece teaching them on video to cook a Filipino dish. His parents show up but he’s bummed his brother can’t join. Then his brother Gabriel shows up halfway through the evening portion.

Last date is with Ben. They do a Venice Beach themed date. He is joined by his sister Madalyn and Antonia Lofaso, who was on Top Chef and is a staple on the Food Network. She is a good friend of Bens that he trains at the gym.

-Rose Ceremony Elimination: Ben Smith.

However, if you watched the previews for the rest of the season, Ben is shown talking to Tayshia in a scene that we don’t see tonight, which means we now know Ben shows back up at some point during the finale.

    However it ends is fine with me. The fact that people give Steve a hard time is funny and pathetic. I’d be happy for her if she does NOT end up with Zac. I have no issues with him as a person – they just don’t seem like a good fit. Brendan seems like a better choice.

    I totally agree with Adelina. And I hope it’s Brendan. They are so cute together!

    Kinda weird that people were upset about the Josh interview. I didn’t think it was a compelling Podcast, because the message really was “yeah, I cheated, but only once. And so I’m not this horrible person”. And yeah, he said Tayisha wasn’t a good partner financially (is that a big surprise?) and implied that she’s in it for the attention (again, is that a surprise?). It’s not like he dragged Tayisha through the mud. Except for the extent of his infidelity, everything else we kinda knew already.

    Any chance she picks the right guy a.k.a. Ivan? I don’t see it with Brendon (he didn’t bring anything to the table AND not ready to even introduce her to his family), Ben who obviously has mental health issues and Zac (no, he looks nothing like Mcconaughey) who also has lots of issues.

    Ha, ha, Steve’s really taking a chance by reporting stuff that MAY be true because we all know he’s going to get slammed if it’s wrong – “but you said…” At least he seems to know that going in. I do hope it’s Brendan in the end. They seem the best fit. Brendan’s looks are okay on the show, but if you look at his Instagram – hot! He’s super handsome. He must do some modeling. Ivan is also handsome, but wow, he needs to tell his brother that having a face tattoo is not going to help his employment chances. Those two brothers are totally different. Also, I’m calling BS on Matt James not knowing anything about The Bachelor. His best friend was on the show. You’re telling me he didn’t watch Tyler on the show? Nah.

    @rob22, I agree.

    I’ve just listened to Steve on Olivia’s podcast. She just didn’t get what Steve was trying to say about Josh. I said in a comment what Steve was saying to her on a previous page. Josh did the Podcast because Tayshia went public about the details of the break-up of her marriage, and she didn’t have to. Olivia saying ‘it’s the bachelorette so everything is public’, is a load of nonsense. Is she saying anything private should be aired in the public domain just because?! I certainly hope not. I suppose understanding somethings don’t need to be aired on national television (and thus remain private) just doesn’t resonate with her.

    Being an such a publicly open book for anyone to mull over your private life, seems sadly, a sign of the times too.

    I don’t care if the ending is right or wrong either. What’s wrong is dragging Steve when he is courteous enough to give us anything at all. But “ it’s his job”! That doesn’t give anyone the right to tell him how to do his job or to be infallible at it. He’s only human. I appreciate what he does. Stop it you morons! Haha!

    @justsaying I like Ivan – he seems like a real and decent guy, but i just don’t see the romantic chemistry between Tayshia and Ivan.
