“I'm the happiest I've been, and I feel like our relationship is just so different from anything that I've experienced, and I thought I'd be blessed to have,” Tasha told ET's Lauren Lima on Wednesday. Tasha said goodbye to Ivan due to religious differences, and eliminated Ben again after he met her family.
In the months since, Tasha and ZAC have grown closer on their “Happy Couple” weekends, and just like any relationship, they've experienced a few growing pains. Just like any normal relationship, we've had to learn how to communicate with each other, navigate when someone's feeling that high of happiness, and someone's not there, and they're having a bad day at work, something like that,” Tasha explained.
All these relationships are being forced back into the home, and couples are kind of staring at each other like, 'OK, what do we do now?'” “I'm going to be bi coastal, so I'm going to be in New York quite a bit but also here in Orange County,” Tasha explained.
The pair has talked about eventually settling down on one coast, and they've also had serious conversations about having kids. ZAC admitted on the show that until recently, he didn't think marriage or children were in his future.
But he assured Tasha that she changed that for him, and he even joked about making “babies” after they got engaged. “I think it's one of those cases where internally, I knew that I wanted to be a father, I knew that I wanted to have kids, I saw love growing up around me with all my best friends, but there's a little of fear in saying that out loud because I'm 36 years old, and I don't have those things yet,” he explained to ET.
TO, Clark & the Queen,” Tasha wrote alongside an Instagram Story selfie of the couple. On Christmas Day, Tasha revealed that they spent some time with her family in California, sharing a couple of sweet snaps with her loved ones.
Tasha and ZAC's holiday festivities came shortly after they made their first public appearance in a virtual interview with Good Morning America. Speaking with GMA hosts, the couple opened up about their engagement and plans to tie the knot.
ZAC didn’t make much of an impression when Clare was the Bachelorette, which may have been the reason she chose Dale Moss as her winner so soon after the first episode. In the bio, ZAC also reveals that he was a parties but is now sober, which is what motivated him to start a recovery program for people after rehab.
As we explained earlier, ZAC works as an addiction specialist in Haddonfield, New Jersey. In his Bachelorette bio, he explains that his sobriety journey is what inspired him to launch his own recovery program to help people reintegrate into the world after rehab.
The main spoiler that Bachelor Nation members need to know is that ZAC is Tayshia’s winner. Reality Steve revealed in October that Tasha chooses ZAC between him and Ben Smith in her final two.
According to Reality Steve, Brendan quits the show because he realizes he isn’t ready for another serious relationship after finalizing his divorce from his ex-wife a year ago. As viewers know, Brendan and Tasha bonded early in the season over their similar divorce experiences.

All those shots of Tasha crying in the desert were one of the ways to throw off the audience for a second. Show runners were fueling the rumors that were set abuzz by Reality Steve that Tasha doesn't end up getting a proposal on the show.
However, all that is behind us now, and we now know she was crying with joy as ZAC went down on a knee, Neil Lane diamond ring in his hand, and proposed marriage to her. It's been some time since the season wrapped up filming and Bachelor Nation fans need fresher updates on this couple.
The franchise's host Chris Harrison has come through one more time, giving fans the answers that they need. “It pains me there’s no AFR live special this #Bachelorette season,” he wrote on his Twitter handle.
“Due to being pushed into the holidays and the difficulty of bringing people safely together during this time it just wasn’t possible. Fans are coming up with a number of theories after this announcement was made, and some of them are of the belief that maybe it's because the couple is no longer together.
“Soon my guess is that b/c Tasha & ZAC haven’t posted anything on social media now that the finale aired they aren’t together anymore & things may have ended on bad terms & that’s why we did not have an After the Final Rose Ceremony #AFR” wrote another. The Bachelorette wrapped its season 16 filming on September 1, so it’s been over two months since ZAC received the final rose.
Some fans felt Tasha repeatedly saying “I wish” when talking about whether her mystery Los Angeles Lakers admirer was an exciting, star player was an indicator that she’s a single woman not in a committed relationship. “There’s a lot that’s going to happen that I guarantee nobody will expect, especially the ending,” she told Rachel Lindsay and Becca Turin on the podcast, Bachelor Happy Hour.
With both Tasha and Reality Steve promising a less-than-conventional ending for The Bachelorette, there’s reason to expect something a little more wild than ZAC getting the final rose but opting against a proposal. That’s a rare ending for the show, but not an especially wild one, especially considering it’s an abridged season and Tasha already told the contestants she wasn’t expecting to get engaged.
The other four are Trista Rein Sutter, Desiree Hart sock Siegfried, Tojo Fletcher, and Rachel Lindsay. The only Bachelor still with the recipient of their final rose is Sean Lowe, who is now married to his choice Catherine Guiding.
However, that doesn’t include Weber, Are Lundy, and Jason Me snick who each began relationships with women who didn’t get the final rose. In true 2020 style, The Bachelorette is doing its best to keep fans on the edge of their seats with cliffhanger endings each week as Tasha Adams journeys on as reality TV show goddess.
During his one-on-one date with Tasha, the sparks really seemed to fly and so did the emotions. Naturally, that got Tasha contemplating marriage in their future.
At events, football games, and just exploring around the city, ZAC's FAM shows up right by his side. I mean, his sister signed him up for The Bachelorette in the first place and made “Clark” shirts for watch parties.
He had surgery on a brain tumor and recovering from that exposed him to prescription painkillers and prompted drinking. ZAC has been really candid about his struggle with addiction long before he went on national television.
He told the Reading Eagle in 2014 that his addiction started with abusing alcohol as a kid. From there, he took prescription medications like Adderall in college, got addicted to morphine after he had a brain tumor removed, and even had his gall bladder removed voluntarily to try to get more prescription medications.
He was eventually arrested for possession of crack cocaine and a DUI. In 2011, ZAC tried to cash a forged check from his dad's account at the New Jersey bank where she worked.
Jackson could tell he needed help and opted to call his father instead of the police. ZAC recounted their first meeting when they reconnected this year: “I was reunited with my Angel.
I got to talk to Rhonda about her children, her faith, and her passion for making beautiful prom dresses (you better show her some love house_of_divine_style.)” He continued: “She remembered the day vividly, and we hugged like we had known each other forever.
In a world that is filled seemingly with so much apathy, Rhonda Jackson taught me a valuable life lesson. ZAC works as an addiction specialist for Release Recovery, a transitional center he launched with Justin Garland in 2017.
Together, they “made it their life’s work to share the gift of recovery with as many people as possible.” They do that through a variety of customized recovery plans, including recovery coaching, sober companion assistance, case management and intervention, and safe transport services.
There is a center for women in New York City's Upper East Side and a recently opened Men's Program in New York, as well as the men's flagship residence in Westchester. Here, “many people reclaim their lives from addiction and repair their relationships with those they love,” according to the Release Recovery website.
Worth noting: Tasha lives in California which, as you know, is nowhere near New York. ZAC “dreams of sharing a Philly cheese steak with his future wife while watching the Eagles win a Super Bowl,” his Bachelorette profile says.
Take a gander at ZAC’s Instagram, and you’ll see more than a few posts about the band. ZAC shouted out Phish guitarist Trey Anastasia on Twitter, spreading awareness of the band's The Beacon Jams virtual concert series that benefits various charitable organizations, including the Divided Sky Fund.
His Instagram is packed with pics of himself after running tons of races, including *multiple* marathons. He's crossed the New York City Marathon finish line six times.
ZAC, who is a Carbon alumnus and current board member, was featured during the Carbon DC Recovery for Life Celebration alongside former NFL quarterback Peyton Manning. Carbon is an addiction treatment center with the mission to “transform lives impacted by drug and alcohol addiction through proven, evidence-based, comprehensive, and personalized behavioral healthcare,” according to its website.
According to Bachelorette finale spoilers from Reality Steve, Tasha ended up picking ZAC in the end, but it wasn’t a seamless love story. She reportedly fell hard for Brendan Morris, but he opted to leave the show before the final rose ceremony.
Tasha ultimately gave her final rose to ZAC, but they didn't get engaged. “I was told ZAC C. was the one who opened up to her the most and professed his love, whereas it was much tougher for Ben, so ultimately she picked ZAC,” Steve wrote on his blog post.
Still, Tasha only mentioned one name on The Ellen DeGeneres Show when asked who was “husband material.” Korin Miller is a freelance writer specializing in general wellness, sexual health and relationships, and lifestyle trends, with work appearing in Men’s Health, Women’s Health, Self, Glamour, and more.
