She’s a catch! Tahzjuan Hawkins had a bumpy ride during season 6 of Bachelor in Paradise after she appeared as a contestant on Colton Underwood‘s season. However, that didn’t stop her from returning to Zach Shallcross‘ season.
During the second episode of The Bachelor season 27, the Bachelor Nation alum made her return to the show and asked Zach if she could “add myself to the mix” of ladies. That being said, the lead ultimately let her down easy.
“I just wanted to let everyone know. Tahz wanted to join the group and I couldn’t say yes to that,” he explained to the remaining women. “I’m establishing actual feelings with all of you women. I just wanted to let you know she is no longer here.”

Who Is Tahzjuan Hawkins?

What Happened to Tahzjuan on ‘Bachelor in Paradise’?
Tahzjuan arrived shortly after the third rose ceremony during season 6 and asked out John Paul Jones. However, she couldn’t stand the heat in Mexico and had a meltdown on the beach before being sent home the following rose ceremony.
“I’m over this s—, it’s f—ing hot,” she said at the time. “I don’t even think I could put eyeliner on right now. I don’t know how to brush my hair anymore. If I pass out, don’t let me go. I can still be alive.”
Tayshia Adams, a fellow contestant from Colton’s season, weighed in on Tahzjuan’s tough stay in Paradise. “Personally, I feel bad for Tahzjuan. It must be really hard coming into this group of people that are making connections and are a little bit further along, even in their friendships,” Tayshia, who had a relationship with JPJ at the time, said.
She opened up a bit about how things unraveled on BiP shortly after her stint on the reality spinoff. “I had every intention of like, ‘OK, you’re going to get up, do your makeup, look great. You’re trying to find a man,'” she recalled to Refinery29. “And then I got down there and I looked at everyone and I was like, why am I the only person having so many issues? I was there for just a couple of days. But the elements really got to me.”
She later reappeared for season 7 of Paradise, but once again, left without finding a love connection.
