• Chris Harrison explained why The Bachelorette didn’t have an After the Final Rose episode this season.
  • Caution: SPOILERS about how Tayshia Adams’ season ended below!

    Last night was the season finale of The Bachelorette, and in case you’re one of the .001 percent of the population that missed it: Tayshia got engaged! To Zac Clark! In other words, the show followed its usual highly romantic pattern—but one thing was different than the norm: ABC didn’t air an After the Final Rose episode.

    Usually, AFR would be an opportunity for Tayshia and Zac to have their first in-person interview as a couple—not to mention a chance for Tayshia to get some post-show closure with her exes. But ABC skipped the episode because of—you guessed it—Covid-19.

    Host Christ Harrison explained the decision on Twitter, saying “It pains me there’s no AFR live special this #TheBachelorette season. Due to being pushed into the holidays and the difficulty of bringing people safely together during this time it just wasn’t possible. But hopefully we’ll be back for #TheBachelor.”

    As a reminder, cast and crew had to do an entire quarantine just to safely film The Bachelorette—so getting everyone back together for one AFR episode would have been logistically tricky to say the least. Here’s to hoping it works out for Matt’s Bachelor season!
