There were two bachelorettes, Clare Crawley and Tasha Adams, multiple villains, and too many cliffhangers to count. By the time the real finale rolled around, Bachelor Nation was more than ready to watch a happily ever after play out.
Well, it's official: Tasha and ZAC Clark are still happily engaged after a sweet proposal during The Bachelorette finale. Finally, fans get the happily ever after they've been waiting for since filming began waylay back in August.
ZAC celebrated the happy news with a throwback pic of him and Tasha from the season shared to Instagram. “All the reasons I fell in love with her on the show remain true today and just in our daily life,” ZAC said.
Tasha added that the COVID-19 pandemic and subsequent quarantines actually helped keep their engagement a secret for the past few months. As for at-home dates, ZAC revealed that he's been introduced to Pinterest and, apparently, it supplied some romantic INSP.
Tasha told GMA that the couple want to take their time getting to know each other better after their whirlwind romance. In a new video interview with fellow former Bachelorettes Rachel Lindsay and Becca Turin, Tasha said that she plans to be bi-coastal.
ZAC then jumped in and added that the couple plans to be on the East Coast for Christmas and New Years, and that there was “no return flight yet” for Tasha. TBD if Tasha was simply wearing diamonds while drinking coffee in December, or accidentally showing off her engagement ring.
That's when Tasha posted a couple of suspiciously sparkly ring pics to her Instagram Stories, and the internet lost its collective mind. In the photos, the Click Bait With Bachelor Nation podcast host wears what *appears* to be a diamond ring on her left hand, according to ET.
He does add that leads get their engagement rings back for Happy Couple weekends, but they don't get them while the show is airing. Rumors flew for a few weeks about Tasha and Brendan Morris rekindling their romance after the season ended.
And, Brendan effectively squashed that rumor during an appearance on Rachel Lindsay and Becca Muffin's Bachelor Happy Hour podcast. Was always leery about that info, and it’s why I said last week I have no idea if it was true or not,” Reality Steve wrote on his blog.
“Well, now we know it’s not true since Brendan went on Rachel and Becca’s podcast today and specifically said he has not spoken to Tasha since the season ended filming because he respects her too much. Though he didn't know too many details, Reality Steve revealed that ZAC had popped the question and the couple were still going strong in a new blog post on Tuesday.
Now, keep your eyes on the 'gram for all the loved up pics and wedding planning updates to come from Tasha and ZAC. Due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic and, presumably, the fear of Barb finding a way to return yet again, Tasha Adams’s Bachelorette season was deprived of an “After the Final Rose” segment, which would’ve allowed her to give viewers an update about her relationship status with ZAC Clark.
The duo ended their Bachelorette journey as a happily engaged couple, although, as many, many previous seasons of this show will remind you, not everything is peachy once the cameras stop rolling for ABC. Although Adams and Clark have yet to post anything on social media as of publishing time, People was granted its customary post-finale interview with the season’s lovebirds.
And this just feels so right.” Adams also admitted that, despite initially having low expectations about finding love amid a pandemic, she’s “100 percent sure” that she found her soul mate with Clark. Update, December 23, 9:30 a.m.: We’re thrilled to report that Tasha Adams and ZAC Clark are still together more than four months after The Bachelorette filmed their proposal finale, proving that love doesn’t die when you leave à la Quinta resort.
During their interview with Good Morning America, the couple confirmed that nothing has changed with their engagement, and Adams is committed to living a “bi coastal life” between New York City and Orange County to be with Clark. “The beautiful thing is that all the reasons I fell in love with her on the show remain true today, in our daily life,” Clark told GMA.
ZAC then added, “I want a big wedding when the day does come. The interview ended with a fun quickfire round of questions that ranged from who is the messiest out of the two to their pet names for each other.
Watch the full interview in the video above ahead of the season 25 premiere of The Bachelor with Matt James on Jan. 4. The Bachelorette season 16 finale aired on Tuesday, December 22, where Tasha Adams chose between her final three men: ZAC Clark, Ivan Hall and Ben Smith.
Reality Steve tweeted hours before The Bachelorette finale that Tasha and ZAC are still engaged and still together. Soon after the episode, Tasha took to her Instagram Stories with a video of her showing off her engagement ring and sitting on Zac’s lap.
Tasha, who worked as phlebotomist before her reality TV career, also told People that she hopes to help with Zac’s recovery center. “ ZAC has such a big heart and his line of work is just helping people,” she said.
Before the finale, however, Reality Steve had suspicions that Tasha and ZAC will stay together. Prior to the last episode, Reality Steve reported that he heard from sources close to Tasha and ZAC that they either already broke up or everyone around them think that they won’t last.
When Brendan quit Tayshia’s season, she was super emotional. Of course, everything changed when he left the competition, and Tasha ended up giving her final rose to ZAC and accepting his proposal.
That said, there were theories that Tasha could pull a switch down the road à la Are Lundy Jr., Becca Turin and Lauren Burnham. Our mission at TELECASTER is to bring style to the people, and we only feature products we think you’ll love as much as we do.

Bachelorette spoiler king, Reality Steve, recently blogged about how Tasha and ZAC will end up together, since Brendan supposedly self-eliminated. We ultimately learned that the final three are ZAC, Brendan, and Ivan.
We now know that ZAC was indeed Tayshia's final choice, just as Reality Steve had predicted. In fact, Tasha and ZAC jumping into the fountain to make out might be the most romantic moment of 2020 (not that we have a lot to choose from, but still).
Plus, Tasha has confirmed that ZAC is husband material when asked who had more of it. During the episode on Dec. 8, Tasha did defend her decision to admit she was falling in love with ZAC, saying, “You know, I did do something that usually you’re not supposed to kind of do, just because you don’t want to say it to too many people.
As Reality Steve wrote ahead of the finale, “I highly doubt they’ve called off their engagement some time in the last 3 months. Tasha was spotted with a diamond ring on that finger on Dec. 1 in her Instagram Stories.
As it stands, some fans have noted that Tasha and ZAC don't follow each other on Instagram, which might show that there's trouble in paradise, but it's not unusual that the cast of The Bachelor or Bachelorette would avoid doing things like following each other to give any hints about their current status. It's for the same reason you wouldn't see Tasha posting photos of just ZAC ahead of the finale.
But, given The Bachelorette‘s less-than-ideal track record for lasting love, and the fact that filming on the show wrapped months ago, it’s only natural to wonder if Tasha and ZAC are still together. During a heart-to-heart with her dad, Desmond, Tasha assured him that she wasn’t planning to get engaged to create a TV moment.
“I can feel the heaviness,” ZAC later said of Tasha on their final date. There were mixed reports leading up to the finale, with Reality Steve first reporting that Tasha and ZAC got engaged, only to break up due to Tayshia’s unfinished business with contestant Brendan Morris.
After the finale aired, Tasha shared video on her Instagram Stories of herself and ZAC laughing and joking for the camera. ZAC also shared an incredibly sweet photo of himself and Tasha from their wedding shoot date, writing, “My ride or die.
Tasha and ZAC are doing the media rounds now, and they’ve made it clear that they’re all in. “We’re moving in together, ” Tasha said on the Bachelor Happy Hour podcast with Rachel Lindsay and Becca Turin, before adding that she’s going to keep her place in California.
“Christmas, New Year’s …we’re going to be East,” ZAC said on the Bachelor Happy Hour podcast. “I’m excited to date her and do some things that we would do in a typical relationship,” ZAC said on the Bachelor Happy Hour.
The couple also did an interview with GMA, where they suggested that they’ve been spending a lot of time together since filming wrapped. Tasha said the pandemic made things “a tad bit easier” for them to sneak around, undetected.
Tasha and ZAC dropped next to zero clues on social media about what they’d been up to leading to the finale, including whether they’ve been spending time together. ZAC shared several Instagram's of himself with family, suggesting that he’s been back home in the New York City area.
Tasha meanwhile, had been sharing selfies from locations that are hard to put your finger on. She did share a video two weeks ago, though, of herself making her signature margarita.
