‘Bachelor’ Star Tayshia Adams Is Urging Followers to ‘Be Kind’ After Coronavirus Panic
The coronavirus (COVID-19) is throwing many into a panic worldwide. While most are practicing social distancing and looking for guidance from elected officials, we’re also keeping up with how our favorite reality TV stars are dealing with the chaos. And it seems Tayshia Adams, former contestant on Colton Underwood’s Bachelor season, is reaching out with her point of view.
We know Adams as cool and collected, as she’s dealt with plenty of turmoil on and off the air. And she’s not changing her ways now, either. Adams is urging her followers to show others plenty of kindness during the global pandemic, as a lot is changing in the face of The Bachelor series, too. Here’s what she told her Instagram followers.
‘The Bachelorette’ is postponed due to coronavirus
Peter Weber’s season had a shocking ending no one saw coming. The 28-year-old had trouble making a decision at the end of his season, causing him to break off his engagement to Hannah Ann Sluss. And since many Bachelor fans thought the young Bachelor and romantic hopefuls may have been the cause of a lot of drama, they called for a season of more mature adults. This led to Clare Crawley, a 38-year-old Bachelor alum, to be cast.
Unfortunately, while Crawley was looking for another shot at love on TV, it will have to be postponed due to coronavirus.
“Well hello! Talk about most dramatic season ever! In all seriousness, Everyone’s health is the most important priority at this time, and as I’m sure you’ve heard, we are pressing pause for now on filming The Bachelorette,” she posted to Instagram on March 13. “We are taking it day by day and even hour by hour as this is so unpredictable. All I know for sure is that my heart is so full from all the love and support this far, and am still so excited for my journey to begin!”
Studio guests for ‘The Bachelor’ live are being asked about coronavirus risk
It seems The Bachelor‘s live programs were even preparing for the coronavirus outbreak. On March 10, a spokesperson for the show’s production company told CNN that they’re asking every single person attending the live program if they’re aware of any risks of contracting coronavirus.
“In response to the impact of the COVID-19 (coronavirus), we are asking all guests to confirm they nor any member of their household have not traveled within the past three weeks to or through a location that has been deemed ‘Level 3’ by the CDC,” the spokesperson stated. “These new and temporary precautionary measures have been put in place out of an abundance of caution and out of concern for the health and safety of our guests and staff.”
Former ‘Bachelor’ contestant Tayshia Adams urges everyone to ‘be kind’
Hannah Ann Sluss from Weber’s season is posting all about how she’s dealing with the virus having just moved to Los Angeles. And Adams also lives in California. Instead of freaking out and panic-purchasing all of her needs, Adams has a message to all of her followers. And it’s to “be kind” in the face of fear.
“I just want everyone to remember to be kind,” Adams noted in her Instagram Story after encouraging others to be better neighbors and “flatten the curve.”
“Especially during this time of a lot of uncertainty and everyone being scared and on edge and anxious. The one thing that we do have control over right now is how we treat others and being a good neighbor,” she added. “I know everyone is nervous about all of it. I get it. But the way you treat people … we can educate gracefully.” Adams also suggested that everyone should be “banning together.”
“Social distancing, yes. Being kind, yes. I’m praying for everyone.”
Adams’ positivity during this time is definitely a welcome change. We love that she’s remaining kind, hopeful, and open to helping others who may have needs during the pandemic. And we’re looking forward to seeing what else she posts.
