When Tayshia Adams and Brendan Morais went on their one-on-one date, Bachelorette fans wondered if they still had a Clare Crawley and Dale Moss situation on their hands. Viewers saw Tayshia Adams’ direct connection to Brendan Morais, especially when they discussed their previous divorces. So what is it with the commercial roofer that makes the bachelor’s heart sing? Recently Adams opened her first date with Brendan at The Bachelorette.
At the end of The Bachelorette Season 16 Episode 5, Tayshia Adams went on her first one-on-one date with Brendan Morais. The couple went horseback riding in Palm Springs. And despite some strange interruptions by host Chris Harrison, Tayshia Adams and Brendan Morais had some fun. They also shared a kiss when they got some time alone in the pool. Then Adams shared that she was ready to go home with her competitor. “Honestly, get me cowboy ready to go home with his husband,” she said in a confessional. “I’m telling you now, Brendan Morais is everything.”
Still, Tayshia Adams wanted to make sure she could connect with him on a deeper level. At the dinner part of the date, Brendan Morais said he was starting to fall for the lead. He also left out some information about his past, causing him to be married and divorced sooner. Then Tayshia Adams opened up about her own divorce, revealing that their stories were very similar.
“Divorce is very important. I thought I was dying when I went through it. So it was really therapeutic to hear him say that my heart has felt for the past two years,” Tayshia Adams said in a confessional. “I felt like I wasn’t alone. We just had some kind of connection on a different level.”
Later, The Bachelorette couple went out to watch fireworks together. Tayshia Adams also gushed about her connection to Brendan Morais in a voice-over. “Kissing Brendan feels like I’m kissing my person. I really feel connected to him,” she said. “I don’t know, I feel like I can marry him, which is so bizarre. I don’t even think I’ve ever felt that way.”
Tayshia Adams added, “Today was just really magical, you can’t describe it any other way than magical. I finally feel like I’m the bachelor, and this is what I’m here for. I know I’m going to find the person I really need to be with”.

She continued: “I remember sitting there and he told me exactly how he felt. Like how he dealt with it and what that meant to him. I swear to you, he spoke the words of everything I’ve ever felt. So we connected very deeply, very quickly”.
