Joe Amabile & Natasha Parker Share Their Biggest Regrets from 'Bachelor in Paradise' Season 7
On this week’s episode of “Click Bait with Bachelor Nation,” co-hosts Joe Amabile and Natasha Parker dished on “Bachelor in Paradise” Season 7 — and revealed their biggest regrets from filming the summer spin-off show.
“To be honest, the first day of ‘Paradise,’ this time, I wish I had a better tan,” quipped Joe, who previously appeared on Season 5 in 2018, during which he met now-ex-girlfriend Kendall Long.
Meanwhile, Natasha wished she had been better prepared for the grueling heat of Mexico.
“I do wish that, for ‘Paradise,’ I was more prepared for the heat, like I had a fan,” the “Bachelor” Season 24 alum admitted. “Some people came with fans and this and that. There were moments I was so hot [that] I got so irritable. It would take me three hours to do my makeup because it would just melt right off.”
Natasha continued, “There’s a conversation — I can’t say with who — but there’s a conversation that I had during ‘Paradise,’ and I was so upset, nervous, crazy. I just had so many emotions and I, the whole entire time, am a complete sweat box. It was awful.”
Joe agreed with Natasha, saying, “The conditions were rough. It was just really hot, really humid, and the sun was out. I was sweating the entire time.”
This prompted Joe and Natasha’s co-host Tayshia Adams to reflect on her own time in “Paradise.” As fans will recall, Tayshia participated in 2019’s Season 6, which led to a brief relationship with John Paul Jones.
“To be honest with you, I thrived in ‘Paradise,’” she said, noting that she also enjoyed her experience as the Season 16 Bachelorette in 2020. “I thrived on my own season. I loved Palm Springs. I thought it was amazing. I really allowed myself to fall in love and have fun. I regret nothing.”
Tayshia — whose “Bachelorette” journey concluded with an engagement to Zac Clark — did say, however, that she has regrets from her time on Colton Underwood’s Season 23 of “The Bachelor.”
“I remember being on ‘The Bachelor’ and I was so freaking nervous. I was shaking like a leaf, probably for the first three weeks and I could barely talk to Colton. I literally couldn’t formulate a sentence and he probably thought, ‘What is wrong with this girl?’ I wasn’t funny. I wasn’t smiling or laughing. I was so freaking nervous,” she recalled. “I was so scared. So, I wish I would’ve just had more fun with it.”
