The bachelor franchise is sure to bring back previous candidates for different seasons and spin-offs, and the new bachelorette Clare Crawley is definitely one of them. Your appearance on The Bachelorette will actually be their fifth time in one of the franchise's shows. Here is a brief summary of Clare's story about all of the bachelor shows to date.
Clare made her debut in 2014 when she was a candidate in Juan Pablo Galavis’s season The bachelor, She made a big impression and even made it to the finals, where she and Nikki Ferrell were the last two women to fight for Juan Pablo's heart. In the end, however, he didn't choose her as the winner, but as Nikki. When Clare found out about this news, she declined a "comforting" farewell hug from Juan Pablo and called him instead, apparently because of something he had told her that the audience would never hear.
"What I thought would be sweet, kind, loving words was not what came out of his mouth, and I'm shocked," she said. "He told me something that no woman wants to hear. That he doesn't know me and something sexual, I don't even want to repeat it. It was insulting, it was insulting and it only made me feel bad." Although exactly what he said to her was never shown, we heard her scold him after the breakup. "I thought I knew what a man you were, but I would never want my children to have a father like you!"
Funny fact: Clare is actually the second candidate from Juan Pablo's season to become a Bachelorette! Andi Dorfman – who has eliminated himself in the past three years – became the Bachelorette for the cycle immediately after its season.
Bachelor in paradise
Clare joined the opening season of Bachelor in paradise In 2014 she started on a (slightly catastrophic) date with Robert Graham, a Desiree Hartsock candidate Bachelorette Season, but soon began regularly "Dating" Zack Kalter, another candidate from Desiree's season. They were together for a few weeks, though they had to deal with a drama when roommates AshLee Frazier's nasty comments about Clare were captured on camera and spread throughout the house. In the end, Clare was too affected by the drama and decided to end half of the show.
That was not the end of her GDP Trip however. Clare returned the following season to try again to find love. She made it through a couple of dates, although it was clear that her heart wasn't quite there. Once she complained about the cast in general and claimed that the cast of the previous season was "more real". Needless to say, she made no friends of this statement and was eliminated in the fourth week.
Bachelor winter games
In 2018 Bachelor winter games included Clare in the cast that brought together candidates from multiple international versions of the franchise. During her time on the show, she seemed to get along really well with Canadian Benoit Beauséjour-Savard, but she quickly got caught up in a love triangle with him and Christian Rauch of the German and Swiss versions of the show. Ultimately, Benoit left the show and Clare was soon eliminated. On the After the Final Rose Special, they revealed that they'd reunited off-screen and Benoit had suggested. Their relationship lasted only a few months before they broke up. But at least this seems to have ended with a minimum of fuss: Benoit even posted an Instagram picture to wish Clare luck Bachelorette Season!
