2. When Tayshia Adams Took Blake To Have His Chakras Read

The date sounded like a typical Bachelorette excursion. However, things took an awkward turn when the woman asked Adams to sit on Blake’s lap and instructed them to stare into each other’s eyes for an excruciatingly long time.

3. And Then Promptly Sent Him Home

After the informal staring contest, Adams revealed that her relationship with Blake wasn’t where it needed to be. “I wish we had more time. I just don’t know if we can get there,” she said. “It’s not that you’re not an incredible guy. The timing was just off for us.”

4. Followed By Riley

When Adams returned from the date, she joined the men in their suite before pulling aside Riley. Since family means so much to him, Adams sent him home, claiming she didn’t want to put him through the rose ceremony when she knew where their relationship stood. #Ouch
