Tayshia Adams misses ‘Bachelorette’ finale after COVID exposure

Tayshia Adams missed out on co-hosting “The Bachelorette” live finale on Tuesday night after being exposed to COVID-19.

“As you guys may know, it’s a little crazy here in New York, and I was recently exposed,” Adams, 31, explained on her Instagram Story prior to the “After the Final Rose” special. “So out of an abundance of caution for Michelle [Young] to have her night, as well as Kaitlyn and the crew, I will not be there in person.”

She added, “But that does not mean I won’t be tuning in, popping my popcorn and enjoying it all.”

The former “Bachelorette” star concluded her post by wishing luck to her co-host Kaitlyn Bristowe and admitted that she “cried a lot about not being there.”

Bristowe, 36, addressed her Adams’ absence, telling the audience, “As you can see, I am alone up here tonight … Tayshia was recently exposed to COVID, so unfortunately she can’t be with us tonight. So Tayshia, we – and I – are really gonna miss you.”

The live finale went on, but it didn’t go off without a hitch. Shortly after starting, fans took to Twitter to share their outrage that the audience members weren’t wearing masks amid the rising COVID-19 pandemic.

“OK but the audience isn’t distanced or masked…?” a fan tweeted/


“My body literally pulled back looking at this – with everything going on and especially when she noted that T had exposure to it – they should not have a full audience and people being maskless!” another chimed in.

The “Bachelorette” producers eventually made all the audience members mask up.

During the show, producers had the audience put on masks after online backlash.

“We’ve seen a lot of chatter online. So, just so we’re clear, everyone around me has tested negative,” Bristowe explained. “But just to exercise additional caution, the audience will remain masked throughout the rest of the show.”

She also tweeted, “You had to be tested twice and today to be able to come in. Everyone has been wearing masks in between, but now we are making sure everyone keeps it on the entire time. But I assure you, everyone has been tested.”

Season 26 of “The Bachelor” premieres on Monday, Jan. 3 at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
