If you thought this season of The Bachelorette was a bit of a letdown, allow us to divert your minds to the US because the American Bachelorette has officially gone rogue. 

According to reports, Clare Crawley (who is the Bachelorette on the 16th season of the American instalment) has quit the show after just 12 days of filming because she’s found the one. No, we’re not joking.

Clare Crawley is now reportedly engaged to Dale Moss, who was one of the contestants and a former NFL player. Notably, he received Clare’s first impression rose in the first episode. 

Now, if you don’t believe in love at first sight, we’re going to need you to watch the clip of these two when they first meet. It’s truly beautiful. Here, Clare Crawley literally utters the words “I knew it. I definitely feel like I just met my husband. Oh my god, I’m shaking”, after their initial interaction.

Can you blame her for quitting? As they say, when you know, you know!

So, what happens to the show now?

Subsequently, the show has had to replace Clare Crawley with another former Bachelor contestant, Tayshia Adams, for the remainder of the season. She will be dating the same pool of suitors.

The news of their engagement comes after Clare reportedly started to go rogue on set, as she ended up spending most of her time with the one person. In one of the episodes, the Bachelorette refused to give out a rose because Dale (the frontrunner) was getting roasted by the other suitors.

And while the dramatic exit is yet to air on US television, footage of fireworks going off at the mansion has leaked online and Tayshia Adams has been spotted at the place of filming

Has Clare Crawley commented on this? 

While fans of the show went crazy on social media after seeing a wedding ring on Clare Crawley’s finger, the American Bachelorette took to Jimmy Kimmel to set the record straight. Although, it really doesn’t feel like she did that at all because the only takeaway we got from the chat is that we’re going to have to “wait and see” what happens on the show.

I guess we’re just going to have to find a way of streaming this in Australia because this sounds dramatic AF. 

What have the producers said?

According to Robert Mills (the ABC Senior Vice President of Alternative Series, Specials, & Late Night Programming), producers knew the season would be “unpredictable” but they didn’t know it would take a dramatic turn like this. 

“You know as the lead, you have moments where you’re like, ‘I’m done, I’m out,'” Robert Mills said. “It was never, ‘Oh my God, what if they’ve met this person (early) and we’ve got to shut this whole thing down?'” But clearly, Clare Crawley changed all of that.

On another note, if you feel like auditioning for the next instalment of the Australian series of The Bachelor, we’ve got you covered.
