Tahzjuan Hawkins isn’t done with Bachelor Nation just yet! After three appearances in shows from the franchise, Tahzjuan is returning on the Jan. 30 episode of The Bachelor. She will help judge a group date on Zach Shallcross’ season along with Latto, Victoria Fuller and Courtney Robertson.

However, there may be more to Tahzjuan’s arrival than just as a guest judge! “Zach is very cute, very easy on the eyes,” Tahzjuan says in a preview for the episode. “If Zach said, ‘Come join my season,’ I would be like, ‘Watch out ladies. Get ready.'” Of course, we’ll have to wait and see whether Zach feels the same way! Learn more about Tahzjuan with five facts below:

1. What Happened To Tahzjuan On ‘The Bachelor’?

We were first introduced to Tahzjuan during Colton Underwood’s season of The Bachelor (season 23). However, we didn’t get much of an opportunity to get to know her during the show, as Colton sent her home on the very first night. Clearly, she made enough of an impression to earn herself a spot on the beach in Mexico, though, because she returned to the franchise for Bachelor in Paradise.

2. Why Did Tahzjuan Leave ‘Bachelor In Paradise’?

Tahzjuan was first on season 6 of Bachelor in Paradise in 2019. She arrived on the beach during week 3 and took an interest in John Paul Jones, even asking him out on a date. However, it wasn’t long before the conditions in Mexico started getting to Tahzjuan, and she had a meltdown over the heat. She was then eliminated at the next rose ceremony. Despite her bad experience, Tahzjuan returned for season 7 in 2021. This time, she came during week one and formed a connection with Tre Cooper. However, when he broke off their relationship after the first rose ceremony, Tahzjuan quit the show and left the beach herself during week two.
