Season 16 | Episode 10
Chris Harrison is back! Hometowns are around the corner and Tayshia is feeling seriously conflicted about who she wants to take home to meet her family.
Blake is somehow still here and finally has a one on one with Tayshia. Their date is with a long-haired reiki/crystal master right outside the resort, which she then observed their shakras. But looking deep into Blake’s eyes isn’t doing it for Tayshia, to which she sends him home packing.
After a very tearful goodbye (which is v b confusing to me – did they even know each other?), Tayshia comes to a realization and addresses the remaining men immediately.
After more tears, Tayshia pulls Riley aside and sadly lets him down as easily as she can. Riley seems pretty blindsided by the fact that Tayshia’s heart isn’t in it as much as his is, but I can’t say I’m too surprised. I did really like Riley so I’m bummed he’s going home but I’m pretty confident we’ll be seeing him again in paradise.
Aaaaand my boy Bennett is back! All the guys are PISSED at this realization; especially Zach C, who tells him not to touch him.
To literally no one’s surprise, Chris Harrison comes in and cancels the rose ceremony because Tayshia knows “exactly what she wants to do”.
To my absolute pleasure she keeps Ben, Zac, Ivan and Brendan!!! Noah and my boy Bennett go home (again), and I think this is the first time in Bachelor/Bachelorette history where I like all 4 men that are left!
The remaining of the episode is the Men Tell All, which lets be real, is just an audition for Bachelor in Paradise.
Short and sweet today, see y’all tomorrow for hometowns!
