THE BACHELORETTE Season Finale: Zac Puts A Ring On It As Tayshia Gets Her Man

Photo: ABC

The pandemic version of the hit reality-dating series franchise, The Bachelorette, had a few major twists.  First, that in the middle of the season the lead ‘Bachelorette’ had to be switched out, when Clare Crawley found love early with Dale Moss and exited the show.

Enter Tayshia Adams, who then started her own journey with the men who were still part of Clare’s season and a few others brought in to add to the mix.

The entire production had to be quarantined and shot in one location in Palm Springs, California.  Even the hometown dates were in Palm Springs as family members from the men still in the competition were brought there.  So with limited locales, the season was not always big and splashy, but in the end, and on the second night of the two-night season finale, you could not have asked for a sweeter ending and proposal between Zac Clark and Tayshia.

So, how did Tayshia and Zac end up together?  Here’s a brief rundown from last night’s two-hour season finale:

With Ben back in the mix and asking for a second chance, (after he could not tell Tayshia the last time that he loved her, he did so now), she invites him to the rose ceremony, where Ivan and Zac, who were the two last men standing, were in for a shock.

At the ceremony, Tayshia asks to talk to Ivan privately. She takes him aside and tells him she has concerns over religion from their overnight date, so much so that she does not think they can go any further and she sends him home.  That means, Tayshia gives her two roses to her finalists: Zac and Ben,

On her last date with Zac prior to the final rose ceremony, Tayshia is not herself when the couple go to a dance class together.  Her anxiety is getting the best of her and it was hard to tell if she was just not feeling Zac anymore, as she is now for Ben, or if she is just getting jitters over the whole process. Later, away from the dancing, Zac and Tayshia have a heart-to-heart, where she is worried what happens if something changes between them, (since she was previously divorced, as was he) and that he does not want her anymore?  Zac said calmly, “No matter what, I’m not going anywhere.”  That helped put Tayshia’s mind at ease, somewhat!

Next, she has made a decision to tell Ben, it’s over between them.  She sits him down and tells him she has stronger feelings for Zac.  Ben shares, “I was excited to be back, I was really hopeful that we would be together.  When you love somebody, you want them to be happy.”  So, with that, he realizes it’s time to pack it up, sharing with the cameras that he believed their lives would have been so good together.

Zac is choosing an emerald diamond to give Tayshia from Neil Lane (of course, at this juncture, he has no idea that Ben has been sent home).  Then, we see both Zac and Tayshia getting ready for the big proposal day.  Will she accept Zac’s proposal … doubts swirling through her head and all?

As the final rose ceremony began, Zac delivered a heart-tugging speech which included: “The first conversation we ever had by our fountain, we talked about how everything happens for a reason. I came here because I was supposed to meet you, I came here because I was supposed to fall in love with you. Nothing has ever felt so right in my entire life. I love you, Tayshia. We spoke of the importance of loyalty, and I will always be loyal to you.”

Tayshia finally and fully let her guard down and shared to Zac; “I know that I told you that I love you, but it’s more than that. It’s this wild, wild love that I’ve tried to come up with so many reasons to not believe, and you have truly made me believe that there doesn’t have to be flaws, and that I deserve love with a man who won’t run away. I love you, Zac Clark.”

As Tayshia is sobbing as Zac gets down on one knee, she says “Yes” to his proposal, and to make it official she gives Zac the final rose which he accepts. Next, they ride off into the sunset in a symbolic cardboard taxi to New York City where Zac lives.

On Wednesday, Tayshia and Zac made their first TV appearance together since their engagement four months ago.  The duo told Good Morning America that they were looking forward to dating and taking it one step at a time, and that Tayshia will be bi-coastal for now, but spending time on the east coast with Zac over the holidays.

So, happy that Tayshia chose Zac? Share your thoughts on this unpredictable season and last night’s episode via the comment section below.

WWE Friday Night Smackdown: Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn Hug It Out and Reunite

When you can get the kind of ‘pop’ that Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn received in front of a live crowd on Friday night’s edition of WWE Smackdown, you know you have struck gold.

Truthfully, this storyline has got so much emotional heart at its epicenter that you find yourself rooting for the two friends to finally put aside their differences.

With Cody Rhodes attempting to mend fences between the estranged besties, it ultimately failed, or did it?  After KO walked out of the arena, he was about to get in his car and drive off when a distraught Sami ran after him. Sami pleaded with Kevin, sharing, that they are ‘brothers’ and that he loves him, and that this is not all just about wanting to repair their friendship just to go after the Usos. KO heard him out, but was silent and eventually drove off.

From there, it looked like it was going to be very bad night for Zayn. Not only was his friendship with Owens in question, but he had to head to the ring for a confrontation with enemy-turned-friend (or so he thought), Jey Uso.

In another great in-ring performance, Jey takes to the mic and unloads on Zayn.  Jey says he was betrayed by Sami, and had no choice but to eventually go back and side with The Bloodline. Just then, Sami took the mic and told Jey he did have a choice, but instead he chose to put up with Roman Reigns’ abuse for weeks.  Sami admits he loved being part of the Uso family and The Bloodline, but he wasn’t willing to stand for Reigns’ manipulations any longer.  He even goes on to say that Jey secretly wishes that he had delivered the chair shot to Reigns at the Royal Rumble.

All of that said was not enough to steer Jey back to Sami’s side, and from there all communication broke down.  Zayn was manhandled by both Jey and his brother, Jimmy Uso.  However, Kevin Owens returned when his music hit … but not down the ramp, he was already in the ring behind the Usos.

Shocked, Owens delivered a stunner and powerbomb to the brothers Uso. After the ring was cleared of Usos, the crowd started chanting in unison “hug it out” as Cody Rhodes watched on a monitor from the back with a smile on his face and a bit overcome.

Finally, Kevin went in to hug Sami, the crowd went nuts, the friends are back together, and we wouldn’t be surprised one bit if this week the WWE will announce that it will be Owens and Zayn vs. The Usos for the Tag Team titles at Wrestlemania 39 in just a few short weeks.

Take a look at the dramatic moments leading up to the reunion of Kevin and Sami below.

Now let us know, where you happy to see Kevin come to Sami’s aid and hug it out with his best friend? Comment below.

THE BOLD AND THE BEAUTIFUL: Ridge & Bill and The FBI Are Working Together to Bring Down Sheila!

How’s that for a headline we thought we would never see, or did not see coming … at all! On Wednesday’s episode of The Bold and the Beautiful, there was a quite a shocking cliffhanger in store for viewers.

The twist brings Thorsten Kaye back into the canvas after his character of Ridge presumably left town following Brooke (Katherine Kelly Lang) and Taylor (Krista Allen) kicking him to the curb.

Meanwhile for months now, viewers have been wondering what the hell is wrong with Bill Spencer (Don Diamont)? How could he be romantically involved with Sheila (Kimberlin Brown)? Hitting the sheets with her? Defending her? Blackmailing Steffy (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood) and Finn (Tanner Novlan) to keep Sheila out of jail?

Many presumed it would be revealed that Bill has a brain tumor, or a physical ailment or had some sort of psychotic break (sword necklace and all), that would explain away his behavior.

Turns out we sort of got our answer at the end of yesterday’s episode.  In it, we see someone scanning a key card to go into “authorized personnel only” room. As the camera pans up, we see plenty of computers and a jacket that reads FBI.  Yes, the kind with big yellow letters on it.

Next, the cameras reveal a man taking off his headphones.  When we pan up, it is revealed that the man is actually Ridge Forrester in a sort of ‘man-bun’.  Next to him is … Bill!

Then Ridge calls Bill his “partner” in this takedown, and asks how is he holding up?  Just then, we see Bill angrily looking at multi-cams from Bill’s house and of Sheila sitting on the phone talking to someone.  Bill then declares that he wants to put Shiela Carter behind bars for life.

The story point has left viewers a bit confused. Such as: Sheila was already behind bars, when Bill got her out of the slammer by blackmailing Steffy and Finn over revealing that Taylor shot him years ago.

So, what did you think about the Ridge and Bill shocker? Do you think this is going to redeem Ridge in the eyes of Brooke and Taylor because he has thus been “protecting” their families this whole time? Do you think Bill will be able to keep his apparent charade with Sheila up much longer?  Watch the reveal below, and then share your thoughts and theories in the comment section.

THE BACHELOR: While Zach Says He Felt ‘Sick to His Stomach’ Over His Decision, He Sends One Woman Packing After ‘Hometowns’

‘Hometowns’ often feature some of the most awkward and uncomfortable to watch moments during any season of The Bachelor.

During it, the four women vying for the final rose, bring the guy (Zach) to meet their families. Of course, going into the ‘meet and greets’, the family and friends of the women know that the guy is also dating three others at the same time! Ah, those hard-hitting questions to come … can’t wait, or can we?

Last night’s episode begins in Vermont with Gabi’s hometown, which starts with a sexually suggestive maple syrup experience as Gabi shows Zach how to drill for syrup in a tree! Later, Gabi puts Zach through a maple syrup blind taste-testing, where one of the options is fake syrup. OOPS! Zach picks the wrong one, the fake one.  Could it be curtains for Gabi and Zach? The drama!

Now on to the family conversations.  When speaking with Gabi’s brother, Evan, Zach shares that Gabi is, “someone I could see a future with and I don’t have a doubt about that.”  Is that reassuring to her brother?  Zach is also in for a twist because Gabi’s big sister is getting married, and the ladies discuss their dream of planning their weddings together! Alone on a bench, Gabi’s insecurities get the best of her, but in the end she tells Zach, “Don’t forget about me” as he heads out to date three other women.

Now, Zach’s off to New York City to meet up with Ariel and her family. Once in the Big Apple, Ariel takes Zach to Sarge’s deli where he eats tongue for the first-time as he is learning a little bit about Jewish culture.  Zach definitely looked most uncomfortable and nervous knowing he was about to meet Ariel’s parents and brother, whom she says looks out for her.

When it comes time for Zach to speak to Ariel’s brother, Bobby, things tank fast for Mr. Shallcross. He has no comebacks to Bobby’s pointed question, which include: “How does he plan to reconcile their different backgrounds? To which Zach, shares: “families will make it work.”  Very awkward.

Next, Bobby asks, “When’s my sister’s birthday?” Zach shakes his head that he doesn’t know.  Bobby follows-up with, “If you don’t know somebody’s birthday, how do you really know a person? Like, do you know my sister’s middle name?” Zach is stuck! He doesn’t know Ariel’s middle name or birthday.  So he responds with,  “If you love someone, and you have that feeling, why don’t you have the rest of your relationship … or the rest of your life together … to get to know the smaller details?” Awkward yet again!  Later, Zach talks to Ariel’s dad, whom he admits that his final choice is still up in the air, or something like that.

We never thought that Zack would continue his relationship with Ariel, after the visit with her family, or after she admitted she was falling in love with him.  More to come on that.

Next stop, we come to Charity’s hometown in Georgia.  You can tell Charity has a loving family and good friends since we meet them all. Most impressive was Charity’s brother, Nehemiah, who shows how much he loves her and how much he is worried for her.  While he cries, it seems Charity isn’t weeping as much.  Once alone with Zach, Charity tells him she is falling in love with him, and later, she tells the testimonial cameras that she is going to sleep well tonight.

Finally, Zach returns to Austin where he lives and … so too does Kaity! How convenient! Since Kaity just moved to Austin, she needs some help setting up her new place. So on their date, she enlists Zach to help her put furniture together including a bookshelf.

When it comes time to meeting Kaity’s family, her mom’s opinion means everything to her.  So, once she got mom’s stamp of approval, we learn why Kaity has been hesitating to tell Zach she loves him. In the testimonials, Kaity reveals that her previous 7-year relationship was “pure toxicity”. Ready to move on, she lets her guard down and admits to Zach that she is falling in love with him.

The women and Zach are now back in LA for the rose ceremony.  Zach is “emotional’ for him, which is not saying much. When he hands out the three roses, it’s Charity who is being sent home. As he walks her out, he tells Charity that he’s felt sick to his stomach all day and only came to his decision only a short time before handing out the roses, and that he “might be making a mistake.” He adds, very awkwardly, “I know you don’t want to hear this from me, but you deserve all the love and I couldn’t give it to you.”

Once Charity is in the limo riding away from the man she thought she had a chance at love with (or did she), she repeats Zach’s words as she’s driven away.  She then says under her breath, “I don’t know what that freaking means,” as she wipes away her tears.

Looks like we have two contenders to be the next Bachelorette at this point … Charity or Greer, who was sent home after traveling around the world to meet back up with Zach after she recovered from Covid, only to have him show her the front door!

After the hometowns, who do you think has the edge for Zach’s heart …. Gabi, Kaity, or Ariel? Share your pick below.
