The post came moments after ABC aired a promo teasing the end of Crawley’s journey and the beginning of Adams’, showing the latter emerging from a swimming pool in a red bikini.

Us Weekly broke the news in August that the hairstylist, 39, found love within the first two weeks of production and exited the show early, allowing the Concordia University Irvine graduate to take over. Adams was spotted on set at the La Quinta Resort & Club in Palm Springs, California, later that month.

The network did not publicly confirm the rumors until Tuesday night. However, longtime host Chris Harrison teased in September that Adams would have a role in the season.

“[She’s] not not the Bachelorette,” he told Entertainment Tonight at the time. “In all seriousness, Tayshia is a very good friend of mine. I absolutely love and adore this woman, and I would love for her to have that opportunity to be the Bachelorette, should that ever arise.”

While viewers have yet to find out how Crawley’s journey ends, all signs point to her ending up with Dale Moss. She gave the former football player, 32, her first impression rose during the October 13 premiere and said she was “falling in love with” him in Tuesday’s episode. She also asked a member of production to speed up a group date after talking to Moss one-on-one and later referred to him as her “fiancé.”

The Bachelorette airs on ABC Tuesdays at 8 p.m. ET.
