Clare Crawley quitting The Bachelorette before things really got going has shook some fans. Sources said she fell in love with one of her suitors. The fact they could get to know each other before filming made the process a little different for her. Reportedly, they FaceTimed and talked a lot. Now that someone else is replacing Clare Crawley, another member of Bachelor Nation is comparing her situation to his season.
Ben Higgins was the Bachelor on the eleventh season. In a recent interview on the Almost Famous podcast, he told Ashley Iaconetti about relating to Clare. Higgins proposed to Lauren Bushnell in the end. While the two didn’t stay together, Ben is grateful for his time on the show.
How Does Ben Higgins Say His Season Compares To Clare Crawley’s?
Just like Clare Crawley, Ben Higgins had an instant connection to one of his contestants. He said, “two days in, I was like, ‘holy cow this girl is fantastic, and she is – Lauren is fantastic.” Ben told the producers he wasn’t sure how to move forward.
Ben said they told him something he was grateful for. They said, “Ben, you have one opportunity in your life to date and get to know multiple people at one time.” Their advice was to get to know the women and take his time. The producers said to pursue them while he had the chance. In a recent Instagram post, Clare posted a quote from Ruby Dahl. The quote is about a woman proud of herself for all the battles she fought and won.

❤️Dear self- I want to thank you. You walked on so many difficult journeys these past few years. You fought battles- with those who love you, and with those whom you love. You were let down time and time again, but you didn’t let it shatter your faith in relationships, in love. You’ve had to prove your worth to those unworthy and you were broken – more than words can explain but you have been reborn. You found your true self and changed the meaning of your life – turning it into something beautiful, into something worth living! So, I want to say that I’m proud of you. I know how hard it has been. I cannot thank you enough for taking care of me. I promise that I will continue to take care of you too. Just keeping strong. For me. Keep going. Keep on fighting. You know you can do this. – Ruby Dahl
Ben Said The Show Pulled Him In Different Directions
Ben felt a connection with Lauren Bushnell from the beginning, but he continued to go on other dates. Clare Crawley didn’t have other men to distract her from her number one. He said over time he fell for more than one and famously told Bushnell and Jojo Fletcher he loved them. Ben said, “I would just recommend to any lead, like, I know your heart might be pulled but you might want to stick it through.” He’s said it changed his life in only positive ways.
While it is surprising for Clare to have already left the show, it does make sense. Unprecedented things are more common now because of the pandemic. A source spoke to US Weekly about the mystery man Clare Crawley left for. They said, “he always thought Clare was attractive before they even met. She is totally his type and he loved her energy.” Now that Tayshia Adams has stepped into the role of The Bachelorette, fans have a lot of exciting unknowns to look forward to. At the top of that list, of course, is how the season will end.
