Clare Blows Up The Bachelorette

Bachelorette Clare Crawley has officially blown up the show. During a “normal” season of The Bachelorette, the bachelorette gets a couple months to spend time and get to know the men on the season. After some time, the bachelorette gets to choose who she wants to spend the rest of her life with and it all ends in a happily ever after (usually). Well, with the way that 2020 is going, nothing seems “normal” anymore. Since day one of the season, bachelorette Clare Crawley said she met her husband, Dale Moss, when she first saw him step out of the limo. Throughout the season, Clare could only think about Dale and fell head over heels for the former NFL player. Just after four episodes, Clare called it quits and got engaged with Dale, leaving the show and the rest of the men.

Feeling shocked and confused, the rest of the men from the show were given a choice to leave the show or stick around for another chance at finding love. As the Bachelor Nation had anticipated and the show had advertised, a new bachelorette has stepped in to find love on the show. Tayshia Adams was introduced as the new bachelorette on the show, picking up where Clare had left off.

ABC’s The Bachelorette Season 16 Begins

The hit ABC network reality show The Bachelorette, aired on Tuesday Oct. 13. This season of The Bachelorette was shot in a different location than previous seasons of the show. Because of the pandemic restricting them to film the show regularly, TV show host Chris Harrison, Bachelorette Clare Crawley, and the 31 men who hope to fall in love with her had to change a couple things to shoot the show safely.

The first thing that the Bachelor Nation noticed was that the show didn’t shoot at the usual Bachelor Mansion that past seasons of The Bachelor and The Bachelorette have shot at. Instead, this season was shot at the La Quinta Resort in Palm Springs. In this way, each of the men were able to have their own rooms to quarantine for 2 weeks and get tested for COVID-19. After the two weeks and testing negative, the men were finally able to meet Clare.

As Clare met her men and got to know a little bit more about them, there was one man that really caught her attention; Dale, a 31-year-old former pro football player from South Dakota. From the moment she saw Dale, it was like “love at first sight”.

After getting to know the men, a little bit of drama and giving Dale the first impression rose, Clare sent eight men home, leaving the other 23 men still hopeful for love.
