On tonight’s new episode of The Bachelorette, we ended up seeing the first major departure of the season — Jason Foster is done. He left the show, and he chose to leave under his own accord.
Let’s give Jason a lot of credit here when it comes to his decision to depart — he recognized that he emotionally couldn’t be there for Tayshia Adams after Clare Crawley chose someone else, and he decided that it wasn’t worth putting Tayshia through something. That’s why he went over and told her directly. He didn’t want to lead her on, and didn’t want to come across as manipulative or wishy-washy.

Maybe if Jason had more time, he would have been able to get to another place with Tayshia — unfortunately, there just wasn’t room for him to have that. This season moved so quickly but there is one thing that we know for certain now — he was unabashedly there for the right reasons. If he wasn’t, he could’ve faked some feelings and tried to find a way in order to move forward. That didn’t end up happening.
Is there going to be a chance to see Jason again at some point in the future? We have to hope so. Maybe there will be an opportunity to see him on Bachelor in Paradise someday. We know that he’s not going to be The Bachelor, given that Matt James already has that title. Tayshia is understandably nervous after Jason’s departure, mostly because she hopes that other people are there for her.
