This season of The Bachelorette is nothing if not unconventional. If fans thought the dating show would return to normal after Clare Crawley's shockingly early exit, they're in for another surprise. 

Bachelor Nation fans are now convinced that the new Bachelorette, Tayshia Adams, will be joined by her ex-husband on the show. TikToker @bigmoodbayley noticed that a new ABC teaser included a caption that indicated a voiceover by ex Josh Bourelle. The fan realized he's (obviously) not one of the men vying for Tayshia's heart on the show, so why does he appear to be in an upcoming episode?

In the clip, the voice purported to be Josh's says, "It's only a matter of time before she realizes the truth." WHAT TRUTH?!

The pair divorced (due to his alleged infidelity) before she competed on Colton Underwood's season of The Bachelor.

The 30-year-old phlebotomist officially replaced Clare earlier this month after weeks upon weeks of speculation. The SparkNotes version: Clare got a head start when she researched her guys on social media during quarantine. When filming resumed this summer, she immediately clicked with her dream man AKA former NFL player Dale Moss. The couple got engaged on the show and are already teasing their future baby plans.

The Bachelorette 2020: Meet Clare Crawley and Tayshia Adams' Men

Enter Tayshia, who took over for Clare after the "explosive" early ending on Nov. 5. She gave Spencer Robertson her first impression rose, and later told E!'s Daily Pop that her dream man will be someone "that is ambitious" and that "challenges me."


She recently took fans behind-the-scenes of how the transition happened when she was asked to replace Clare. She recalled producers telling her, "Clare thinks that she's finding love here and it's working for her and if things keep moving as quickly as they do, she might have found her person, and we still have many fantastic men that are still looking for love and open to it and if I possibly was, then I'd be the girl," she explained.

Though it's still unclear why Josh is crashing her season, he's not the first ex to react to Tayshia's big moment. Bachelor in Paradise's John Paul Jones innocently cheered her on by writing, "Go TayTay!!!!" on his Instagram Story last week. 

We'll just have to tune in to ABC on Tuesday to see her potentially reunite with her ex-husband for the world to see.
