The Bachelorette stars Dale Moss and Clare Crawley celebrate their one-year anniversary, a milestone moment for the couple whose attraction and feelings for one another set the stage for one of the most dynamic moments in the series’ history.
Clare met Dale during her first night as the star of The Bachelorette, Season 16.
Clare was the first contestant to film her season in a quarantine bubble due to coronavirus restrictions. In 2020 Her season was held at La Quinta Resort in Palm Springs. She exited The Bachelorette after only 12 days of filming because she had fallen for Dale, to whom she gave her first impression rose on night one.
Clare’s connection to Dale appeared instant. Sparks flew between the two from the moment he stepped out of his car for their first meeting. Clare said these words on camera and sealed the deal regarding her feelings for Bachelor Nation to hear; “Oh, man. I definitely feel like I just met my husband. I’m shaking!”
She ditched the show in favor of Dale, and they finished their time on reality TV with a shocking engagement.
While a lead had never left mid-production before, this wasn’t the first time Clare quit a Bachelor Nation show. She chose to leave in Season 1 of Bachelor in Paradise in 2014 after questioning how serious her partner, Zack Kalter, was about their relationship.
