It looks like it may be official, Bachelor alum Clare Crawley will be named The Bachelorette 2020. Reality Steve took to Twitter to share the news Saturday morning. Clare will reportedly be announced as the lead on Monday morning during Good Morning America.
Who is Clare Crawley?
Younger fans may not be too familiar with Clare. She first appeared on Juan Pablo’s horrible season where she finished second. Clare then appeared on Seasons 1 and 2 of Bachelor in Paradise. At that point after not finding love she retired from the Bachelor life. Then she decided to come out of retirement, so to speak, and join The Bachelor: Winter Games.
The appearance on Winter Games led to an engagement with Benoit Beauséjour-Savard that lasted about a month. Clare has never been afraid to speak her mind and do what she wants. She is 38 and that could mean she will at least bring less drama to The Bachelorette.
Let’s take a look back at some of Clare’s career highlights on this show, shall we? This was a classic when she told Juan Pablo off at the final rose ceremony… https://t.co/TW43Z2Oav6

Why was she chosen as the lead?
Reality Steve took to Twitter to share his thoughts recently on why Clare could be a good choice for The Bachelorette. He said, “Here’s my opinion on Clare IF she does end up being the “Bachelorette.” Yes, it’s random. And yes, she’s not on anyone’s radar really. But 1) that gives them major shock value 2) gives them some1 older and 3) it kinda puts her as a combination of being the female Arie & Nick.”
Steve went on to say, “This show is all about who has a story they can sell to their audience. And Clare no doubt has a story. Not saying it’s any better or worse than someone else’s story. I’m just saying I can see where they’re going if it does end up being her.”
There has been many who question the choice and also just as many who are excited. Many Bachelor alums have spoken up and expressed their support for Clare. Support has also came from former Bachelor Nick Viall. Could Nick end up joining her season. They are both in their 30’s and that would be fantastic!
Contestants for Clare’s season
Reality Steve has shared that contestants are already being cast for Clare’s season. Her season should start filming within three weeks or so. Steve says he knows of ten guys for sure. He actually took to Twitter again Friday evening to say, “I swear if this “Bachelorette” casting rumor is true and this guy I’m hearing makes it as a contestant, I’ll be giddy. Would automatically make him my favorite male contestant ever.” Nick Viall commented, “I had a good run.” Steve responded with , “Ok. Second favorite.”
Are you excited to see Clare get her chance at love?
