The 2020 season of The Bachelorette with Clare Crawley kicks off tonight. And there is already a controversial contestant even prior to airing. Blake Moynes apparently reached out to Clare while the show was on hold for the pandemic. And, she was sure to point it out. He broke the rule of not reaching out to cast members prior to filming.
Clare shares what happened
US Weekly shared all about what went down. A sneak peek for the season premiere show Clare revealing Blake reached out to her during the big quarantine. In a clip, Blake discusses what happened. He said, “Clare posted on Instagram on a Story that she was really struggling right now because of what her mom was going through in the hospital. So, I want to check in if she’s OK.”
Fans know Clare’s mom has health issues including dementia and Alzheimer’s.
She has admitted that while she did google her potential contestants and look on social media, she never reached out. In fact, Clare confronted Blake about his decision. She said, “So, over quarantine, it was really hard for me. And I didn’t want to bring this up, but there are these weird rules that we have to follow for the show of not contacting somebody, and you were the only guy who reached out to me the entire time. So, you broke the rule that you’re not supposed to contact somebody.”
Chris Harrison’s thoughts on the subject
Host Chris Harrison says he will definitely be having a conversation with Clare about contact prior to the show. He said she admitted to doing some research to try and figure out who the guys are and what they stood for. Chris admitted perhaps that isn’t a bad idea. He even said maybe in future seasons this could become the norm.
Aside from the drama with Blake, there also appears to be even more bombshells. However, if rumors are true then Clare ends up with what she wants. She said, “Everybody keeps asking me, ‘Are you happy? Are you happy?’ and I keep telling everybody, like, I was happy going into this. So, whatever came about it, I’m happy now. Things are well on my end.”
