We interrupt our usual stream of The Bachelor spoilers to bring readers a rather impressing The Bachelorette spoiler.
And that Bachelorette spoiler is this:
WE KNOW WHO IS GOING TO BE THE NEXT BACHELORETTE!
This topic of conversation and consternation has been floating a hot topic around the Internet for several days now.
With Peter Weber’s awful season of The Bachelor winding down, fans are understandably curious which woman will step into the lead shoes on this ABC franchise when The Bachelorette returns this summer.
Could it actually be Hannah Brown, returning for a historic second run?
Or the villainous Victoria Fuller, who actually remains in the hunt for Peter’s heart?
Or Kelsey Weier, who advanced to the hometown episode of The Bachelor this year but was then sent packing?
According to the most reliable Bachelor and Bachelorette source out there, the answer to these questions are no, no and no.
And the answer to who will actually be the Bachelorette in 2020?
It’s Clare Crawley!!!!
Tweeted the only and the only Reality Steve on Saturday morning:
(BACHELORETTE SPOILER): Monday morning on GMA, Clare Crawley will be named the “Bachelorette.”
As a refresher, she finsished 2nd on Juan Pablo’s season, was on BIP 1 & 2, and was recently on Winter Games. Refer back to my thoughts Thursday as to why I could see this decision.
As outlined by Steve above, Crawley nearly became the fiancee of Juan Pablo during his polarizing run as The Bachelor.
She was then a popular contestant on multiple seasons of Bachelor in Paradise and even got engaged to a fellow reality star in 2017.
Steve describes Clare as “passionate, emotional” and as one who definitely “falls hard,” which makes her perfect for The Bachelorette.
And yet: assuming Clare is the selection, this will buck a long-running ABC tradition of selecting an anchor from the most reason season of The Bachelor.
Despite this seemingly being a reason to doubt Reality Steve, let’s be serious here: The guy is never wrong about this stuff.
When you want Bachelor spoilers or Bachelorette spoilers, this is the person to turn to, it’s as simple as that.
Heck, he even alleges on Twitter to know the ages of 14 of the men who will be pursuing Clare this year (28, 28, 25, 23, 28, 30, 40, 28, 31, 33, 26, 26, 28, and 28) and says filming for her will begin on March 13.
She will likely meet five of her suitors on the March 10 Bachelor finale.
Prior to this reveal, it had been rumored that Hannah would actually run it back as The Bachelorette… until she and ABC clashed over her salary.
Crawley, as previously cited, actually got engaged to Benoit Beauséjour-Savard during The Bachelor Winter Games: World Tells All special, only to split from him about two years ago.
“We understand A lot of you have been asking about our relationship since the show, and we wanted to thank you all for the love and respect as we navigated it in real life off camera,” the two stated at the time, adding:
“It’s with a heavy heart that we have mutually decided to end our relationship.
“We think the world of eachother, and we were both hoping we could make this work.”
And Crawley concluded:
“I’m sorry that this may not be what you want to hear, but it’s our truth.
“Just know there are no negative feelings here, we are simply two people who believed in love, and were open enough to give it a chance.
“Please respect our privacy as well, as with the end of any relationship, it is never easy. Thank you for your understanding and love while we have shared our vulnerability with the world.”
So there we almost definitely have it.
Clare Crawley — who is 38 years old, ancient by ABC standards — will be the next Bachelorette. She’s someone few within Bachelor Nation has really heard from or talked about in awhile.
The only question that now remains, therefore, is this:
Will you be watching her journey?
