'The Bachelorette's Zac Clark Talks Staying Sober During The Show

Zac Clark is opening up about staying sober while appearing on The Bachelorette.

The 36-year-old addiction specialist, who won the most recent season and is now engaged to Tayshia Adams, chatted about his sobriety on his fiancee’s Click Bait podcast, saying he did not drink any alcohol on the show.

“I’m so happy we’re taking about this. It is wild how much attention this gets,” Tayshia, 30, said when chatting about Zac‘s sobriety on the podcast.

“Apple cider for the win!” Zac said with a laugh, while adding that “sober to me means no drugs, no alcohol, no nothing since August of 2011.”

“And I gotta say, you know, everyone who worked on the show, anytime there was a toast, there was someone with an apple cider sparkling …” Zac continued, while Tayshia added, “or even ginger ale at times.”

Zac went on to recall one of the rose ceremonies towards the end of the season when Tayshia chose not to drink with him – which he said was “the moment I knew Tayshia liked me”

“After the rose ceremony, there’s this round of toasts,” Zac explained. “The guy came out with the tray of champagne and there was four champagnes and one apple cider and she looks at him and she goes, ‘No, I’m drinking apple cider with him tonight.’ And I said, ‘What?!’ She made the guy go back, get an apple cider while all these people are waiting.”

“So, she was on team Clarky that day,” he added, “and that’s when I knew.”
