The stress of American election week was painful, to say the least, but a welcome distraction will grace your TV screens on Thursday night. The “Bachelorette” will return after she has given up her normal Tuesday schedule for urgent election coverage.
Clare Crawley’s wild story continues, and we can only hope that Nevada will count its votes either before or after 8:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. ET so that our national Bachelorette clock is not interrupted.
Bachelorette Crawley is expected to “blow up” the reality dating show on Thursday night, as many teasers (many, many teasers) have suggested. The lead actress will sit down with host Chris Harrison, ABC’s production team and her clear leader Dale Moss, as they will all apparently decide that she should leave the show with Moss.
Good thing Tayshia Adams has already been quarantined!
We are expecting the official switch from Crawley to Adams on Thursday evening, even though Adams doesn’t have much airtime. The bachelorette finally admitted that Adams will join the season in the very last seconds of last Tuesday’s episode. We know from spoilers that Adams will step in to meet all of Crawley’s remaining men as well as some additional contestants who will be brought in specifically to see her.
The episode will air on Thursday night at 20:00 ET on ABC. However, this will be the only episode on Thursday. This means that viewers will not have to wait a full week before the series continues on Tuesday at its normal airtime at 8:00 p.m. ET.
It is too early to know exactly how the transition from Crawley to Adams will go. From the episode preview it is clear that Thursday night will focus on the relationship between Crawley and Moss and how their dedication to each other has made a huge difference to the production. From there, trailers show Harrison addressing the remaining men, apparently saying that Crawley would no longer be their bachelorette. So it makes sense that Adams would enter.
Shockingly, the bachelorette has remained silent about Adams’ involvement, although spoilers have surfaced about her casting earlier this summer. As long as she is not officially on screen, it seems that the Bachelor Nation will put the story together piece by piece, teaser by teaser.
Adams already appeared in Colton Underwood’s season of The Bachelor before joining Bachelor in Paradise. At the spinoff on the beach she fell in love with John Paul Jones. The two pursued a relationship after the series, but eventually broke it off….
