Now that Michelle Young’s season of The Bachelorette is on air, fans are already looking forward to the OG series of the franchise, The Bachelor.
The Bachelor lead hasn’t been officially announced by ABC. However, as Monsters & Critics previously reported, rumors surfaced that the lead was going to be a contestant from Michelle’s season of The Bachelorette.
It was then pieced together that Clayton Echard was that lucky contestant and shortly after that, footage popped up of him filming his intro segment for The Bachelor.
Clayton is a 28-year-old medical sales rep who aspires to open and own several gyms.
The Missouri native has already won some Bachelorette viewers over with his positive attitude and sense of humor. He showed off his wild side when he first met fifth-grade teacher Michelle and offered her a ruler to spank him with.
Here’s everything we know about Clayton’s season.
