About Tayshia Adams:
Tayshia Adams, best known simply by the mononym Tayshia, is a television host and multimedia personality.
Tayshia made her TV debut on The Bachelor in 2019, winning over the nation with her infectious energy and instantly becoming a fan-favorite, which led her to return to television that same year on the sixth season of Bachelor in Paradise. Tayshia's captivating presence led to fan-organized social campaigns petitioning for Tayshia to become the franchise's next lead. The fans were heard, and in the fall of 2020, Tayshia became the inspiring, groundbreaking star of The Bachelorette's sixteenth season, in which she was the first biracial lead in the franchise's history. In May 2021, Tayshia took home the MTV Movie & TV Award: Unscripted for "Best Dating Show" on behalf of her season, which was also nominated for a People's Choice Award.
It was during Tayshia's role as lead when she realized that the role of host, and behind the scenes work that goes into it, was the most fascinating and fitting position for her. Following her season, Tayshia went on to co-host the next two seasons of The Bachelorette. Since then, Tayshia has been a guest host on shows including Entertainment Tonight and E! Daily Pop, and now, she is the host of this year's MTV Movie & TV Awards: Unscripted. Outside of television, Tayshia has starred in nationwide commercials and campaigns for major car manufactures, fashion designers, beauty brands and athletic companies. Tayshia has graced the spreads of magazines including Cosmopolitan, Marie Claire, Women's Health and more.
The proud daughter of her African American father Desmond and Mexican mother Rosario, Tayshia feels a deep connection to both sides of her family's roots and heritage. In her free time, Tayshia loves to travel and is passionate about fashion, beauty, interior design, her faith, volunteering, and fitness. Running, in particular, has been a pastime of hers since she was young and is now a major part of her active lifestyle. Tayshia completed the New York City Marathon in 2021 and ran in support of the non-profit humanitarian organization World Vision, for which she helped raise sponsorships for over 150 children in Kenya and Honduras. She also enjoys volunteering at her local food bank weekly with the charity Feeding America.
A 2012 Concordia University Irvine graduate and former phlebotomist before beginning her journey in television, Tayshia is bicoastal and spends her time between Southern California and New York City.
