Taylor's Life After 'The Bachelor' Is A Mystery

She hasn’t gone home just yet, but Taylor is doing what we in the Bachelor biz call the Chad exit. (Or at least that's what I'm going to call it from now on.) This means she isn’t going to take her two-on-one date elimination lying down. Much like Chad in Season 12 of The Bachelorette, who returned to stir up trouble before officially leaving for good, Taylor is about to do the same thing with Nick. But what about after she finally makes her exit from the show? Is Taylor single after The Bachelor? It’s clear that she doesn't find love with Nick, but that doesn’t mean she’s a lost cause as far as romance is concerned. Unfortunately, her social media doesn't give anything away in terms of a current love interest, but she has left the show with a few new friendships and that’s somehow even better.

Taylor obviously had every intention of making it much further on The Bachelor and seemed to think that her being open with Nick about her conversations and arguments with Corinne would help her cause. But it all completely backfired on her and Nick sided with Corinne in the end. He opted to give Corinne the benefit of the doubt, leaving Taylor out in the bayou all by her lonesome. But even though he and Corinne sped off in their speed boat built for three, the promo for Monday's episode shows Taylor making her way back to the hotel and showing up at Nick and Corinne’s dinner date.

But after what is likely going to be a few choice words and some awkward exchanges, Taylor will probably be gone for good. So is Taylor dating someone after The Bachelor or has the show sullied her views on romance and emotional intelligence once and for all? On Instagram, there has been no evidence of a new man in her life, but she’s remained close to Kristina, Christen, Vanessa, and Danielle M.

She captioned a photo of the five of them in Nashville with “It is the friends we meet along the way that help us appreciate the journey,” with a few empowering hashtags thrown in there. She’s also been hanging out with Dominique, so she’s likely having enough fun doing the single thing from what I can tell.

There isn’t much to suggest that Taylor is in a relationship after The Bachelor, but from the looks of it, that’s kind of what she wants for the time being. And after all of the drama that she left in her wake, you can’t really blame her for that. But now that her elimination is public knowledge, if she does have a guy in her life, she'll be free to post some photos of the two of them moving forward, since it would no longer be considered a spoiler. So I guess we'll just have to keep hitting that refresh button on Instagram until we know for sure.
