It’s finally time to unveil The Bachelorette‘s Season 16 cast Instagrams. For a minute there, it looked like we’d never get to this moment. After production on Clare Crawley’s season of The Bachelorette was halted back in March, details about her cast became murkier than ever. These delays left ABC’s original plans for Clare’s cast—which was then primarily comprised of suitors under 30—completely up in the air (you know, given the fact that it’s a lot for anyone to uproot their life to participate in a reality dating show—no less in the middle of a pandemic!) But now, Clare’s cast is officially confirmed in time for The Bachelorette’s return to ABC on October 13.
On September 29, host Chris Harrison took to Facebook Live to confirm The Bachelorette’s list of contestants—which, as we know, will also include another leading lady, Tayshia Adams. Rumor has it, Tayshia will be taking over Clare’s role as bachelorette this season after Clare falls for one of her contestants (*ahem* Dale Moss) and leaves the show early to be with him. Now, that’s just one of the insane Bachelorette spoilers predicted by Reality Steve so far, and things may end up looking a little different. For now, though, curious fans already know what to do: It’s time to search these Instagrams for clues!

28 today 😅 *panics internally* Thank you to everyone who wished me a happy birthday. I’ve lived a lot of life and learned many lessons in those years, but I’m still very much a work in progress. As a way of reflecting on that time, I thought I’d share some of what I’ve come to know and live by – all of which I have to remind myself of from time to time too. (1) There’s strength in loyalty, not in numbers. You don’t need a certain number of friends, just a number of friends you can be certain of. You will become a product of the people you surround yourself with – choose wisely. It’s okay to unfollow people in real life. I keep a very small circle and because of that, I know for a fact that I have zero weak links in that chain. (2) The greatest attribute a person can have is the ability to self-educate. You don’t have to always accept things as they are told to you. “Why” is perhaps the most powerful word we know – don’t be afraid to use it. Truly, how free are you if you can’t think for yourself? (3) One of the greatest feats of strength a person can demonstrate is to be alone with their own thoughts. Too often, we seek out “noise” to distract ourselves with because those thoughts are too intimidating. It’s scary to sit down with yourself and try to find out who you really are and understand yourself, but it’s necessary in my opinion. Make sense of yourself before you try to make sense of the world. Self-mastery. Self-discipline is self-love. (4) Find joy, not happiness. Happiness is too result-reliant. We chase some achievement expecting that it will make us happy or provide some fulfillment, meanwhile we’re miserable the entire time we’re chasing it. And even if we achieve it, that sense of happiness may only last for 15 seconds and then it’s “well, what next?” Joy is in the process. Joy is in the daily grind, and that provides gratitude. Gratitude always reciprocates. Don’t sacrifice family, friends, memories or too much time pursuing happiness because it will constantly evade us. Have no regrets when that 16th second arrives. (5) When you leave this world, leave with the gas tank on E. Exhaust every bit of talent you have while you have the time to use it.
