The Bachelorette’s Tayshia Adams Holds Hands With Summer House Star Luke Gulbranson Amid Dating Rumors

Crossover alert! Rumors are swirling after a photo of Tayshia Adams getting cuddly with Luke Gulbranson went Instagram official prior to the photo being hastily deleted.

Lindsay Hubbard posted the pic showing the Season 16 Bachelorette holding hands with the former Summer House hotty. The cute couple was snapped at an Easter Sunday celebration alongside Andrea Denver, Chris Leoni, Carl Radke, and Lindsay. Page Six has the details.

“Easter at #RadHouse [bunny emoji] [flower emoji] . . . And then we river danced, salsa danced, and dirty danced,” Lindsay captioned the post. In the now-deleted photo, Luke was standing closely behind Tayshia, his arm wrapped around her and holding her hand. Sweet! “They’re getting to know each other,” a source told Page Six.

Shortly after deleting the original post, Lindsay re-shared an edited version of the photo, with Luke and Tayshia cropped out. She added the comment, “Well this is awkward,” accompanied by an “embarrassed face” emoji.

Eagle-eyed fans who had spotted the original post immediately flooded the comments section speculating about a relationship reveal. “Lushia” would certainly make an adorable couple, and we’d all like to see them happy. “As if no one saw the first post with luke and tayshia,” one commenter laughed.

Another fan conjectured that the original post had “already been re-posted on every bravo site lmao.” While a third seemed delighted, posting, “Omg are Taysia and Luke dating I love it lmao.” Someone else pointed out the obvious. “Girl. Too late now! We already saw them holding hands!”

The former Summer House resident and the California native didn’t share any of their own photos from the party. Nor have they made any statement about a possible romance. All evidence indicates that they’re just trying to have a normal dating relationship without the interference of the media or public speculation. Just like regular people.

Dating rumors first started on March 25, 2023 when both Luke and Tayshia were tagged on Instagram as being at the same bar at the same time. A gossip site also reported the pair attended a New York Rangers hockey game on March 21 and then went to a bar afterward.

During her time as the Bachelorette, Tayshia initially found love and became engaged to Zac Clark on the Season finale in December 2020. But the two quietly broke up nearly a year later in November 2021, and she’s been single ever since. She was rumored to be linked to Southern Charm star Austen Kroll in December 2022. Although Tayshia insisted they were “just friends.”

For his part, Luke flirted with some of his Summer House castmates, including former tennis pro Hannah Berner and Victoria’s Secret model/registered nurse Ciara Miller, but nothing serious came of it. He also had a three-month fling with Real Housewives of Potomac star Ashley Darby, which also burned itself out quickly.

I’d really like to see things work out for Luke and Tayshia. They both seem very down-to-earth and deserving of happiness. I hope they give us all — and themselves — a happy ending.
