The Bachelor and The Bachelorette may be a strange concept to some. One person having the pick of 30 contestants who all want to land themselves a long-term relationship – it could seem a little unlikely that things would work out in the real world. But, as it turns out, there are a number of happy couples living their lives together following the ABC show.

Tayshia Adams first rose to fame on ABC’s The Bachelor during season 23 in 2019. Since then, she’s had a whirlwind reality TV career and a whirlwind romance, by the looks of things. Along with her fiancé, Zac Clark, Tayshia ran the New York City Marathon in 2021. So, let’s take a look at the couple, from when they first met to today!

Tayshia and Zac are meant to be

Many Bachelorette viewers took to Twitter during the 2020 show to voice their appreciation for Zac and Tayshia as a couple. One person Tweeted: “Having survived the s*** shows that were Peter, Hannah, and Coltons seasons, that proposal from Zac to Tayshia was what all of Bachelor Nation deserved.
