Attention fellow lost souls who live, eat, and breathe Bachelor Nation: The time has come to grab the nearest available raccoon (if you know, you know) and talk about The Bachelorette. More specifically, the show’s new star Clare Crawley, a four-time Bachelor franchise alum and person who puts up with approximately zero bullsh*t.
The 38-year-old is about to begin a beautiful
dating competition love journey that’ll hopefully result in her getting engaged on national TV while Chris Harrison lurks in the bushes somewhere. But this is hardly her first ~rodeo~. Chances are, Clare’s past relationships will resurface this season (especially considering she was engaged to a fellow Bachelor Nation star), so it’s time for a deep dive into her relationships. Honestly, it’s gonna be the *extreme Chris Harrison voice* MOST DRAMATIC DEEP DIVE EVER, so get ready.
Juan Pablo Galavis: 2014
In the event that you weren’t watching The Bachelor back in 2014, (a) wow, rude, and (b) Clare was Juan Pablo’s runner-up. Their relationship was…how can I put this delicately…pretty much a trash fire, and she justifiably tore him apart during their breakup. Direct quote:
As you can see, Clare has no tolerance for anyone’s BS, so this season of The Bachelorette should be spectacular.
Zack Kalter: 2014
Clare and Zack met during Bachelor in Paradise season 1, and honestly, I’m not sure hanging out for a few weeks on a beach full of drama-traumatized (draumatized?) crabs counts as a relationship, but I’m gonna include it anyway.
Tragically, YouTube doesn’t seem to have any footage from this golden era of reality television, but I did find this photo of Zack posing with some string lights. It’s called art, ever heard of it? Wow.

At the beginning of 2019 I decided to be more mindful. Mindfulness is something anyone can practice. It takes a little work but it's important, especially in this hyper informational world we live in. We have so much information/noise coming at us from every direction every day that it starts to distract us from what we are truly meant to be doing here. What is your purpose? Simple things like focused breathing (never thought I'd hear myself saying that) have really helped me center my attention and focus on what REALLY matters. When your soul is calm you can focus on what brings you purpose in life and you can start to put more important things above yourself. This can be done through several methods including meditation, sitting still and just breathing, and praying. It's an important thing to learn and I've just now started to understand how valuable it is. It's something I wish I had learned earlier in life. My friends at @aloyoga have started an incredible movement to bring free online yoga + mediation courses to schoolkids who may need them more than they know. Again, this is something I wish I had learned earlier in life so I felt the need to share it with you. Go to AloGives.com starting today for a free 12-week course on quieting the mind through yoga + meditation 🙂 #ALOGIVES And remember, light always overcomes darkness ✌?
Mystery Bachelor Nation Alum: 2017
Back in 2017, Clare went on Reality Steve’s podcast and opened up a bit about her romantic life, confirming that she’s dated other people from the Bachelor franchise and doesn’t plan on naming names anytime soon.
“I really don’t put my dating life at all on my social media,” she said when asked if she’d dated other Bach alums. “The answer is yes. Like I said, with people either in the franchise…or in some way related to the franchise. Yeah, I have.”
Benoît Beauséjour-Savard: 2018
Clare and Benoît met on Bachelor Winter Games in 2018, and, lol, he ended up proposing on TV. It was cute! Minus the fact that it was clearly never gonna work out!
Sadly, for the .001 percent of the population invested in their relationship, these two broke up in April 2018, writing a joint statement on Instagram that said, “It’s with a heavy heart that we have mutually decided to end our relationship. We think the world of each other, and we were both hoping we could make this work.”

We understand A lot of you have been asking about relationship since the show, and we wanted to thank you all for the love and respect as we navigated it in real life off camera. We do understand however, having a public engagement on TV kind of changes that. It's with a heavy heart that we have mutually decided to end our relationship. We think the world of eachother, and we were both hoping we could make this work. I'm sorry that this may not be what you want to hear, but it's our truth. Just know there are no negative feelings here, we are simply two people who believed in love, and were open enough to give it a chance. We still care for each other very deeply (That is why no hate or disrespectful comments will be tolerated about the other.) Please respect our privacy as well, as with the end of any relationship, it is never easy. Thank you for your understanding and love while we have shared our vulnerability with the world. ❤️ Clare & Benoît
But! Benoît has since hit IG to let everyone know how happy he is for Clare, so no hard feels.
That’s all for now, but I can only assume a fleet of interns are currently hard at work mining Clare’s past for other exes they can potentially bring on the show, so stay tuned!
