Tayshia Adams was a contestant on the 23rd season of The Bachelor.
She returned for the 6th season of Bachelor in Paradise.
Tayshia and John Paul Jones met on the 6th season of Bachelor in Paradise, but broke up near the end of the show. They since reconciled and began dating. Tayshia announced their split on October 30, 2019.
"You know, the first conversation we ever had by our fountain, we talked about that everything happens for a reason and when I came here to the desert I didn't know what that reason was, but I do today. I came here because I was supposed to meet you and I came here because I was supposed to fall in love with you. From our first kiss to riding the Ferris wheel to meeting each other's families, nothing has ever felt so right my entire life. You've helped me experience the love that I didn't know existed and you've made me smile more than anyone has ever made me smile. I love you, Tayshia. I love you because you're a fighter. I love you because you're a strong, independent woman, you make everyone around you better. I love you because you believe in me. I love you because you're a total dork and I love you because you drive me absolutely wild. I love everything about you and I listened when you spoke of the importance of loyalty. I promise to be loyal to you." - Zac to Tayshia
"That first night when I got here, I was extremely excited for the possibility of finding love but also very nervous and scared because I didn't know if finding true love was possible. When I first met you I thought to myself, 'He's different', and 'That man is kind, he shows gratitude and has the biggest smile. He has been through a lot but has never given up, but also has learned how to read me better than anyone really has and knows how to comfort me when I'm down'. There was one point in my life where I thought I would never get married because of all of the pain and the heartbreak that I've been through. I hit absolute rock bottom and I know that I told you that I love you but, sorry, it's more than that. It's this wild, wild love that I have tried to come up with so many reasons to not believe, and you have truly just made me believe that there doesn't need to be flaws and that I deserve a love with a man that won't run away. I'm truly looking at my heart and yes, it is real. I feel it too. And I want to make more traditions and jump into fountains all over the world with you. I'm ready to hail a taxi. And I'm ready to start a life with you. But also, I love you, Zac Clark, and I'll do absolutely anything to keep that huge smile on your face, because you do everything to keep a huge smile on mine." - Tayshia to Zac
"The night of my hometown... when we walked in and my parents got to see that smile on my face, you gave them the best gift you could ever give them. They hadn't seen me that happy in years. You did that. That's when I knew, that's when they knew and the other night when we were talking, you spoke about this idea of someone choosing you and I can't picture another day, another moment, without you in my life and if you'll let me, I'm gonna choose you right now, I'm gonna choose you tomorrow morning, I'm gonna choose you next week and next year. I'm going to choose you forever, because I love you. Marry me?" - Zac proposing to Tayshia
They broke up in November 2021.
