And your new Bachelorette is....CLARE CRAWLEY!
The news was announced Monday during "Good Morning America." The newly crowed Bachelorette made the announcement herself, mentioning that she found out for herself over the past weekend.
The 38-year-old made her first appearance on Juan Pablo's season of The Bachelor in 2014. She then appeared on two seasons of "Bachelor in Paradise," and one season of "Bachelor Winter Games."
Crawley is now considered to be the oldest Bachelorette at 38, and many are wondering how old her suitors are going to be. Casting is currently underway for Crawley's season, so we shall find out soon!
My Two Cents
I am stoked that Clare is going to be The Bachelorette. While the Bachelor shows are geared toward the younger adults, it's incredible to have someone my age as the leading lady (as much as the youngins are entertaining, I don't relate to any of them). I am hoping that the men chosen will be age-appropriate (born in the 1970s and 1980s). I would hate to see the producers cast men who are 10+ years younger than her. What will a 20-something have in common with a woman in her late-30s? Guys in their 20s weren't even born in the 1980s! Clare deserves suitors in the same age range as her.
If you're looking for a unique perspective on your favorite reality TV shows, and their stars, you have come to the right place! Your girl, Shauna, will keep you entertained as we obsess together about people we will never meet in real life. Ever. Pour some tea, kids, it's about to get REAL!
