Clare Crawley is getting a second chance at her second chance of love! After The Bachelorette production was put on pause by the coronavirus pandemic, ABC is ready to begin the Bachelorette's search for love for a second time with a different group of men.
On Tuesday, ABC released 42 contestants who are looking to win Crawley's heart, of which, 25 are new names and 17 remain from the original pool of men. Excluded from the original list are 15 men, including Matt James, who has already been named the next Bachelor. Crawley, who is 39, has a significantly older group of suitors, who range from 25 to 40, with the majority of contestants ranging in their 30s.
Crawley admitted on Rachel Lindsay and Becca Kufrin's Bachelor Happy Hour podcast that she had already looked up some of her men during the shutdown. "Obviously. What woman wouldn’t, are you kidding me?" she said. "I will say this. At first, I really didn’t. I really did not and it was because, I don’t know. I just kind of felt like I want to get to know them and regardless, I know how my Instagram is. It’s a piece of my life. … You have to see and feel it in person and so regardless of what their life is and what it looks like on their Instagram, it’s nice to actually see them in person and I am huge on pheromones, so that’s like the end for me." Keep scrolling to see who Crawley will be looking to make a connection with on the all-new season.
