And your next Bachelorette is…
The 38-year-old hairstylist from Sacramento was announced as the upcoming season’s lead during Monday’s Good Morning America.
For those who don’t immediately remember Crawley, she appeared on the 2014 season of the series when she looked for a chance at love with then-Bachelor Juan Pablo Galavis.

As one of the two finalists, Crawley was sent home.
She appeared in a few spinoffs including Bachelor in Paradise and The Bachelor Winter Games, in which she got engaged to Benoit Beausejour-Savard. Clearly, that didn’t last, and she’s looking for love once again.
Crawley was just as surprised as the rest of the world because she told GMA, “I literally just found out. ”
So unexpected, can you believe this? Six years later? What is happening,” she added.
What’s happening is that producers didn’t find any of The Bachelor Season 24 contestants as viable choices.
Twitter was pretty impressed with the choice especially because Crawley becomes the oldest Bachelorette.
Fans believe that this season’s contestants were too young and thus, immature and not truly looking for a forever partner.
Crawley believes her age means she won’t “settle” and “knows what she’s looking for.”
Many were excited about The Bachelorette Season 16 choice:

Clare Crawley: Bachelorette 16
I’m excited to see her take another shot at love within the franchise. I think she knows what she wants, won’t take any BS, and will be open & vulnerable.

I'm excited for this!
Finally someone ever the age of 25. I'm tired of all these 23 year olds saying they are looking for a wife/husband when really all they want is to be on BIP or Instagram famous #TheBachelor #TheBachelorette pic.twitter.com/Bmm82jMGUp

Clare Crawley is the next Bachelorette. I’m happy we have a woman of age/experience and not another early 20 something year old but… Clare as lead? Eh. I don’t hate the idea but I also don’t necessarily care for it. We’ll see how this all shapes up.#TheBachelorette. pic.twitter.com/5jObdJrZAj

Did we want Clare? No
Did we want Peter? No
Did we want Hannah? No
Did we want Arie? No
The producers thrive on ruining any trust we have in them#TheBachelorette

After years of not getting my way, I might be officially giving up on the Bachelor franchise. This season of #TheBachelor is dumpster fire, now Clare Crowley is #TheBachelorette? No thanks. pic.twitter.com/xfvCT6rDZV

And while it seems the show is heading in the right direction by not making all of #BachelorNation sit through another season of 20-something wannabe Instagram influencers who want to sell fit tea, there’s a much bigger issue at play that this user brought up — the show’s lack of diversity. It’s one thing to cast contestants that are diverse, but when will the producers casting the lead get the memo?
Why ‘The Bachelorette’s Final Few Episodes of Season 19 Won’t Air on Mondays
Bachelorette Mondays are almost over.
While there are still a few more episodes left in the season, the reality series will not be airing on Monday nights for the final few episodes.
Season 19 of The Bachelorette welcomed two leading ladies, but the episode count stayed the same, meaning that double the fun was packed into each week.
This past week on August 22, the bachelorettes went on their hometown dates, which means that the “Men Tell All” episode is next followed by the Fantasy Suite dates.
The “Men Tell All” episode, hosted by Jesse Palmer, will debut on Monday, August 29, with the first Fantasy Suites episode concluding Monday evenings on September 5 (Labor Day!).
The second Fantasy Suite episode (double the leads, double the drama!) will move to a new night, Tuesday, September 13.
The season finale and “After the Final Rose” live special will air Tuesday, September 20.
The changes are being made likely to accommodate the start of the fall primetime TV schedule along with the premiere of Bachelor in Paradise, where you know things are bound to get crazy. BIP will stick to Tuesday nights for the season.
Got all of that? Mark it in your calendars and get ready for tears, drama, and a fairytale ending.
While episodes might be shifting from Monday to Tuesday, the time slot stays the same at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.

Twitter Reacts to ‘The Bachelorette’ Season 19 Announcing Two Leading Ladies
The upcoming season of The Bachelorette will be double the trouble.
Season 19 will have not one but two women looking for love!
Following Tuesday night’s After the Final Rose special, ABC revealed that both Rachel Recchia and Gabby Windey both appear in the new season of the reality dating series.
Both ladies were contestants on Clayton Echard’s recent season of The Bachelor and were eliminated during the season finale.
“After unwaveringly supporting each other through a devastating dual breakup in the season 26 finale of ‘The Bachelor,’ fan favorites and fierce women Gabby Windey and Rachel Recchia will stand by each other’s side yet again as they set out on a journey to find love,” ABC revealed in a press release.
Canadian TV personality Jesse Palmer will be the host.
The new season will heat up your screen on July 11.
Spoiler alert: Twitter had a lot of thoughts!
I just don’t want Gabby and Rachel competing from the same group of men, I feel like it could get ugly real fast. #TheBachelorette
— Kim Rogers, Fan Attorney (@dramakim) March 16, 2022
So they have share a season? Why can’t they their own seasons, they are just going to pin these ladies against each other. #thebachelorette

Producers: "Gabby doesn't want to compete? Perfect let's give her the first ever joint competition season she will have to compete as the bachelorette now too"
