Season 16 of The Bachelorette has officially started and is already offering a lot of drama to Bachelor Nation. We expected gimmicks, thanks to reports that Clare Crawley was out just 12 days after filming began and Tayshia Adams stepped in to replace her as the lead actress, but a teaser for the coming weeks shows that Clare's time as a Bachelorette doesn't go so smoothly into the night down, as one would have expected.
The teaser is full of short snippets of Clare and Dale Moss' romance in full bloom, along with shots of the other suitors realizing their chance to fall in love with the 39-year-old barber down the creek goes down. But the juiciest moment – aside from Chris Harrison bringing the damn line down to Clare and saying, "Congratulations, you just blew up The Bachelorette"- happens around 1:19 mark. To see Clare visibly upset, and although we don't see the kerfuffle who leads to her anger or who she is with, we see her calling someone hotly:" Sick! Ill! Ill! "Then she speaks to the camera and says," I don't care what I've done. To sit there and say, "You're the oldest bachelorette," you know what? I am the oldest bachelorette, who is 39, who is standing here, who is single because I was not satisfied with men like that! "
Go on girl tell your truth And we all know that age is nothing more than a number (when we're talking about adult consent), but it's obvious that anyone who mentioned Clare's age didn't do so as a compliment. At least she definitely didn't see it that way. A few more scenes pass before we see the clip, which is most likely related to Clare's indignation. A man in a blue suit yells, "I expected a lot more from the oldest bachelorette." It doesn't take a lot of contextual clues to put these two responses together.
The big question we have is who the man was who was brave enough to shame the woman he allegedly found love with on television. We already know the people who couldn't be, so we're working with a finite list of possibilities. If we want to judge by first impressions, we have to put our money on a specific applicant: Josef Aborady.
The 30-year-old medical device seller from Daphne, Alabama, got off to a rocky start back into the season's premiere and reports are said to have his exit even hotter. Of course it's all speculation so it could be any of the guys we already like, but we feel like we're right about this. There is still a lot of it Bachelorette To go before we find out the truth, so buckle up folks, it's going to be a wild ride!
