The fan theory was spotted in a recent Reddit thread where a user explained that ABC is testing the waters with Tayshia on Men Tell All. The ABC star co-hosted the taping of the Men Tell All episode with Kaitlyn Bristowe. The pair has previously shared mentor duties on the last two seasons of The Bachelorette.
Fans were quick to conclude that Tayshia’s involvement on the special could hint on setting her up for the second run. The Reddit thread read the following fan theory:
“With the reports that the breakup with Zac will be discussed at Michelle’s MTA, I think there’s a decent chance she’s being considered for a second Bachelorette season. She’s a popular contestant that can bring in ratings and is basically a franchise lifer at this point.”
Fans have previously complained that Tayshia deserves a full season with traveling and other amenities included. They further demanded men picked out specifically for her and not Clare Crawley. The Redditor exploited these to justify that Tayshia’s return could bury these complaints.
After her sudden split with Zac Clark, Tayshia publicly discussed the breakup for the first time in Men Tell All. Tayshia would be the second star from the franchise to get a second run at being the lead if she is signed. Longtime fans would remember Brad Womack who served two terms as The Bachelor.
