1. What Happened To Ed On ‘The Bachelorette’?

Ed was a contestant on season 16 of The Bachelorette, where he dated Clare Crawley, and then Tayshia Adams after Clare’s exit from the show. He didn’t get much screen time at the beginning of the season, but got more and more outspoken as filming went on. Ed called out fellow contestant, Chasen Nick, for not being on the show for the right reasons, and was a source of comic relief throughout the middle of the season. Although Tayshia was crushing on Ed for a bit, she wound up sending him home during week eight, along with two other contestants.
