'The Bachelorette': Tayshia and Zac do a wedding photoshoot, fans slam producers for preying on 'emotional trauma'
The makers were forced to plan all dates in and around the quarantine bubble but are they running out of creativity?
Zac Clark finally received a one-on-one date with Tayshia on the December 1 episode of 'The Bachelorette'. According to blogger Reality Steve, Zac is one of the men who feature on Tayshia's Top 4. He's the one who Tayshia chooses in the end, however, they don't end up married or engaged when the season ends, according to the blogger who is seldom wrong with the information about the show and is the most trusted source for all things related to the most popular franchise that ABC has ever produced.
This year, the makers had to put in extra effort to make the show happen. They needed to film the entire season at a resort in Palm Springs that's serving as a quarantine bubble for the entire cast and crew of 'The Bachelorette'. The show is eight episodes in however, fans are already complaining that the producers have been running out of ideas regarding the dates that they've been planning for Tayshia and her men.
The show has seen some of the most unreal, but very romantic dates in the past. However, this season with everything being planned around the resort, the challenges that the makers have been facing are now beginning to show and fans are not here for it. Especially the wedding photoshoot that Zac and Tayshia had to participate in. A lot of fans picked up on how "uncomfortable" the both of them looked as well as the fact that the makers didn't even bother to pay attention to all details while planning this date, including finding the perfect size tuxedo for Zac. Fans also called out the producers for trying to get the both of them to engage in this date that required them to take fake wedding photos even though they've both ended up with a broken marriage earlier in their life.
"Producers making Tayshia and Zac take wedding photos for their date, knowing they’ve both been married before #TheBachelorette," wrote a fan. "I find a date where you pretend to do wedding photos a bit weird. Zac did well but he might have too much emotional baggage for Tayshia. #TheBachelorette" wrote another. "The bachelor producers preying on Tayshia’s emotional trauma: #thebachelorette," wrote another. "In what world would this NOT be weird and uncomfortable?? Hey, go do a pretend wedding photoshoot with this stranger. Never like these. #thebachelorette" read another tweet.
