Ben Smith was sent home not once but twice by Tayshia Adams on season 16 of The Bachelorette. During the finale we watched him return to Tayshia saying “I’ve never felt this feeling, but I’m in love with you.” Unfortunately he was too late with those words. But let’s rewind quickly to the first time the bachelorette sent him home. During the home visits Smith failed to tell Adams he loved her which was when she needed to hear it most. However, before the finale aired and we watched Ben return with the readiness to say those words, we witnessed him overuse the L word on Instagram and he recently opened up to Kaitlyn Bristowe about it.
