Clare Crawley Is *Officially* Announced as the Next Bachelorette


ABC threw a curveball on Monday morning when they announced the network's next Bachelorette. The 38-year-old hairstylist from Sacramento, CA beat rumored former contestants Tayshia Adams, Tia Booth, and Kelsey Weier.

ABC has cast their next "The Bachelorette" lead, this according to spoilers from blogger Reality Steve.

"I literally just found out", Crawley said. Actually, I take back "finally" since this news is actually coming super early in Peter Weber's season-normally we have to wait for After the Final Rose in several weeks But anyway, Bachelor Nation's next Bachelorette is none! other! than!

"The biggest thing for me is, honestly, it's all what's on the inside for me", she added. "More years learning and knowing what I want and what I won't settle for". "In their words, in light of the significant age difference, compared to the original possible candidates, they chose to forgo younger guys, aka me, moving forward with the show", Canfield wrote. But for me, it's just more years under my belt.

Akar added that 2,212 members of the Syrian forces had been "neutralized", a term used to designate killed, wounded or captured. He said it had destroyed a drone, eight helicopters, 103 tanks, as well as rocket launchers and other military equipment.

As she pointed out, fans first met Clare six years ago when she competed on season 18 of The Bachelor, starring Juan Pablo Galavis, in 2014. In 2018 she accepted a proposal from Benoit Beausejour-Savard.

Those who were hoping for a different Bachelor alum to win the coveted title of Bachelorette were not as excited. Crawley delivered an iconic on-screen diss during the dumping: "I would never want my children having a father like you".

She also had a message for anyone concerned about her age! He shared a Facebook post that claimed Crawley had been chosen.

After missing out on love (and, TBH, dodging a bullet with Juan Pablo), Clare went on Bachelor in Paradise, where she made friends with a raccoon, but did not leave with a fiancé.

Reality Steve has some insight to the decision as well. "And they are definitely going to be doing some late casting of more older guys this week after Monday's announcement".
