Tayshia Adams Reveals What It Was Like Hosting The Bachelorette

Tayshia Adams is returning to "The Bachelorette." However, this time she won't be looking for love. Instead, she'll be helping ABC's latest leading lady Katie Thurston – whose season reportedly ends early, by the way — with her search to find her future husband. Adams starred in the previous season of the franchise when she was asked to take over for original star Clare Crawley (via Variety). Crawley began the season as the lead, but quickly found love with suitor Dale Moss. Crawley and Moss opted to get engaged just a few weeks into filming the show and subsequently left the series. That's when Adams stepped in, and she was an instant hit with the contestants and viewers.

When longtime franchise host Chris Harrison came under fire for some comments he made about controversial photos of "The Bachelor" star Rachael Kirkconnell, Adams was asked to step in as host of the new season. However, she won't be alone. Fellow franchise alum Kaitlyn Bristowe will also join her as co-host of the upcoming season.

While speaking on the "Going to Bed With Garcelle" podcast, Adams opened up about the experience. "Everything just kind of fell into place to where the world needs something fresh and new, and I think that we are going to provide that this season," she said, via GMA. "I think that people are looking for change in the franchise. And I really think that this is something that they're going to be really excited about." Now that filming is over, Adams is speaking out about what it was like to host the iconic franchise.

Tayshia Adams opens up about the girl powered Bachelorette season

According to E!, Tayshia Adams excitedly spoke out about her co-hosting duties while attending the MTV Movie & TV Awards. The reality star, who has been busy planning her own wedding to Zac Clark, revealed that fans have a lot to look forward to when Katie Thurston's season begins airing. "It was the ultimate girl gang, if you will. Every time [Katie] needed us we were always kind of right around the corner and ready to help her," Adams said. "But it was so great to be able to be there with her ... so this was something that was really special for her and I hope that we helped her out."

Adams previously appeared on Colton Underwood's season of "The Bachelor" before trying her hand at "Bachelor In Paradise." She eventually found love during her season of "The Bachelorette" (via Marie Claire). She's now expressing gratitude toward the franchise for helping her grow as a person. "I couldn't have predicted this. If you would've told me this is the direction my journey would go, I would've never have guessed it," she said. Adams continued, saying that the franchise "feels like home," given how much she's learned since she first graced the screen. Fans can see Adams in her new role when "The Bachelorette" returns on June 7, 2021.
