Bachelor spoilers that reveal major spoilers for Clayton Echard's The Bachelor season have surfaced -- including spoilers revealing Clayton's Final 4 women and Final 3 bachelorettes as well as the details of his dates and Rose-Ceremony decisions that led up to his decision to pick his bachelorette winner he ended up with.


[The Bachelor Spoilers Warning: This report features major spoilers for The Bachelor season starring Clayton Echard, including who Clayton's Final 3 bachelorettes are who Clayton may have picked and ended up with as his winner ].

The Bachelor's third episode is set to air Monday, January 24 at 8PM ET/PT on ABC, and 22 women are still in the running for Clayton's heart. (No episode of The Bachelor will air on ABC this week due to the network's broadcast of an NFL playoff game tonight.)

The women who will be appearing in Episode 3 are Cassidy Timbrooks, Elizabeth Corrigan, Eliza Isichei, Ency Abedin, Gabby Windey, Genevieve Parisi, Hunter Haag, Jill Chin, Kate Gallivan, Kira Mengistu, Lyndsey Windham, Mara Agreat, Marlena Wesh, Melina Nasab, Rachel Recchia, Sarah Hamrick, Sierra Jackson, Serene Russell, Shanae Ankney, Susie Evans, Teddi Wright, and Tessa Tookes.

The only woman who has received a one-on-one date with Clayton so far is Susie.

The pair enjoyed a romantic helicopter ride and engaged in deep conversation while soaking in a hot tub on a yacht. The pair bonded over family, wanting children and feeling strong chemistry.


But several bachelorettes were having trouble focusing on their individual relationship with Clayton, especially when Cassidy stole Clayton away from a group date and pursued him aggressively instead of planning a child's birthday party with everyone else.

And Shanae Ankney and Elizabeth Corrigan feuded on a group date as well as during the second cocktail party of the season, although Elizabeth was at the receiving end of accusations and allegations.

Shanae accused Elizabeth of being "fake" and "two-faced," when Elizabeth insisted she struggles to understand several auditory inputs at once given she's had severe ADHD since she was a child.

And then drama boiled over when Clayton considered taking a group-date rose back from Cassidy.

Sierra warned Clayton that Cassidy had been FaceTiming a "friend with benefits" back home while quarantining in her hotel room pre-production. Cassidy and the man planned to reunite after she filmed her show so he could do "nasty things" to her.

And that is only the beginning based on previews that have been released for the rest of Clayton's season!

Clayton has confirmed he found love while filming his season

When Clayton appeared on Good Morning America to discuss his experience as the franchise's leading man in late November 2021, he made a pretty big announcement.

"I did find love," Clayton confirmed at the time.

"And I was a little skeptical going into the whole journey, but I'm so pleasantly surprised that things worked out much different than what I had thought."


Clayton added, "And I'm so excited to watch it back and have everyone else watch it as well."

Just because Clayton found love on the show, however, that doesn't mean he left The Bachelor in a healthy relationship or engaged.

After all, many former The Bachelor and The Bachelorette stars fell in love with more than one person on their respective seasons.


The Bachelor Final 15 spoilers

The next episode will begin where the latest episode had left off, with Clayton deciding whether to take Cassidy's rose away from her.

According to Reality Steve spoiler blogger Steve Carbone, Clayton did in fact choose to take back the rose he had given to Cassidy during a group date earlier in the week and send her home.

Clayton then reportedly ousted Ency, Kate, and Tessa at the second Rose Ceremony of Season 26 -- leaving fifteen bachelorettes in the running for his final rose..

In regards to snatching a rose back from someone, Clayton shared with Us Weekly in December 2021, "The thought crossed my mind. Now whether or not I acted upon it, that's what everyone is going to have to wait and see."

"But there are many moments throughout the journey where I was shocked and I was just kind of, yeah, asking [host Jesse Palmer] sometimes... 'Is this something that I can do? Because this is how I feel.'"

Clayton elaborated, "I was just navigating my love journey the way that I felt was right."

Clayton continued to date his bachelorettes in Los Angeles, CA, starting with a solo date downtown with Sarah.

The couple reportedly took on "a bunch of challenges" together and then Sarah earned herself a rose.

For the group date, the women dressed in red one-piece bathing suits and participated in a Baywatch-themed competition, which required the bachelorettes to go head to head in beach challenges.

According to Carbone, Gabby won the challenges and received extra time with Clayton at the end of the date. Clayton then gave Gabby a rose.

That evening, Shanae and Elizabeth's feud reportedly continued and then Shanae isolated herself from most of the cast.

At the third Rose Ceremony, Clayton reportedly ousted Elizabeth, Kira, and Melina.

The Bachelor Final 12 spoilers

Clayton and his bachelorettes traveled to Houston, TX, for the next round of dates.

Clayton embarked on a one-on-one date with Rachel that was inspired by a "small town in Texas." Rachel ended up with a rose.

Then, as probably expected, the girls competed in a tackle football game at NRG Stadium, honoring Clayton's history as a former professional football player.

There were seven players against six, and the team of seven reportedly won the game.

Shanae, who was on the losing team, reportedly crashed the afterparty and broke the winning team's trophy.

The next one-on-one date belonged to Serene Russell, who went to Galvestion Pleasure Pier with Clayton, who won some big teddy-bear prizes.

After Serene accepted a rose from Clayton, Clayton ousted three women at the fourth Rose Ceremony of the season: Jill, Sierra, and Lyndsey W.

Clayton's Final 12 bachelorettes were Eliza, Gabby, Genevieve, Hunter, Marlena, Mara, Rachel, Sarah, Serene, Shanae, Susie, and Teddi.

The Bachelor Final 9 spoilers

The next stop on Clayton's journey to find love was Toronto, Canada.

Although the pair had spent time together in Texas, Gabby was invited on a one-on-one date.

The couple took a helicopter ride and ended up walking in a park and sitting on a park bench. Gabby got the rose at the end of her date.


The group date in Toronto featured nine women roasting each other on a date hosted by Canadian comedian Russell Peters at Archeo restaurant. Shanae, who emerged as the villain of Clayton's season, was reportedly an easy target.

The highly-anticipated two-on-one date took place in Toronto with Genevieve and Shanae.

Photos of Clayton and the women had been taken at Queen Victoria Park when the show was filming, and the trio also took a ride on the Maid of the Mist to Dufferin Island Park.

Shanae was sent home on the date.

And at the fifth Rose Ceremony, Clayton ousted Hunter and Marlena, according to Carbone.

Clayton's Final 9 bachelorettes were Eliza, Gabby, Genevieve, Mara, Rachel, Sarah, Serene, Susie, and Teddi.

The Bachelor Final 7 Spoilers

After traveling to Hvar, Croatia, Clayton asked out Teddi for a solo date, and she received a rose by the end of it.

Carbone provided no details on the group date this week, but he believes Sarah received the other one-on-one date with Clayton.

The sixth Rose Ceremony then featured Clayton rejecting Eliza and Mara Agreat.

Clayton's Final 7 bachelorettes were therefore Gabby, Genevieve, Rachel, Sarah, Serene, Susie, and Teddi.

The Bachelor Final 4 Spoilers

Clayton and his Final 4 bachelorettes flew to Vienna, Austria before the women's round of hometown dates.

"I don't know if this was a 'if you get a rose on your date, you advance,' or if they just had dates and had a Rose Ceremony at the end," Carbone wrote in his blog on December 16.

"All I know is the end result of who the 4 remaining women were once they left Vienna."

Clayton took Serene to Hofsburg Palace on a one-on-one date, and then Susie received the special "Pretty Woman" date.

Susie, wearing a long red dress, received a rose from Clayton at the end of their one-on-one.

According to Carbone, Genevieve was sent home at some point during the week without going on a date.

"I don't know who approached who first, but it was established that Genevieve and Clayton just weren't a match and didn't see it long term," Carbone claimed, "so he either sent her home or she left. Not sure how it'll be shown."


Carbone is unsure of whether there was a third one-on-one date in Vienna to go along with a group date.

Following Genevieve's surprising ouster, Clayton eliminated Sarah and Teddi at the seventh Rose Ceremony of the season.

Clayton's Final 4 bachelorettes were Gabby, Rachel, Serene, and Susie.

Clayton apparently falls in love with three women

Clayton had no trouble finding love on The Bachelor. In fact, the process apparently worked a little too well for him.

During The Bachelorette: The Men Tell All episode that aired in early December 2021, a trailer aired that featured Clayton admitting, "I didn't believe it could happen, but I am in love with three women."

Clayton proceeds to tell one woman, "I couldn't be more sure that I'm falling in love with you," before telling a second bachelorette, "I'm falling in love with you."

And Clayton shares with a third woman, "I am in love with you."

A mystery woman subsequently laments in tears, "He's in love with all three of us?!"

The Bachelor Final 3 Spoilers

In order to choose his Final 3 bachelorettes, Clayton met his Final 4 ladies' families in their respective hometowns.

Susie's hometown date in Virginia Beach, VA, filmed on November 2, Rachel's hometown date took place in Orlando, FL, on November 4, Serene's hometown date taped in Oklahoma City, OK, on November 6, and Gabby introduced Clayton to her loved ones in Denver, CO, on November 8.

The Rose Ceremony reportedly occurred on November 9 and ended with Serene being denied a rose.

"One thing I'd heard since hometowns was that Serene was eliminated at #4, and judging by the previews [on December 6], it was all but confirmed," Carbone wrote last month.

Clayton's Final 3 women as a result were Susie, Gabby, and Rachel.

All three ladies reportedly made it to Iceland for overnight Fantasy Suite dates as well as the Final Rose Ceremony.

Clayton has sex with at least two of his bachelorettes

During the trailer that aired during The Bachelorette: The Men Tell All for Michelle Young's season, Clayton is shown standing in front of two ladies -- either his Final 2 bachelorettes or two of his Final 3 women.

Clayton appears to be leading a Rose Ceremony following his round of overnight Fantasy Suite dates.

"I just want you to know that what I'm about to say is not going to be easy to hear," Clayton announces to two ladies.

"I want to be fully, fully transparent, and I know it's not easy to hear, but I was intimate with both of you."


A brunette woman cries, "I'm done," while walking away from The Bachelor star and then falling to her knees.

"What the actual f-ck?!" the brunette complains.

The drama apparently leaves Clayton feeling "so broken" as he stares at a diamond engagement ring, seemingly unsure of whom to give it to.

Carbone said he doesn't know how the elimination went that determined Clayton's Final 2 bachelorettes.

"I don't know yet. What we do know is that Clayton found love this season... so whatever drama they want you to believe ensued from that conversation of saying he was intimate with 'both of you' obviously didn't derail anything," Carbone wrote in his blog on December 7.

Clayton reportedly gets intimate with both Rachel and Gabby

The blonde woman in the trailer that aired during The Men Tell All was reportedly Rachel.

And while the brunette woman crying was Sarah, Carbone reported that Sarah did not make it to Iceland, where the final dates were filmed.

"It was sent to me numerous times... that the venue Clayton is standing in is in Iceland (where we know the overnights and final Rose Ceremony are) and that the two women whose backs are two us (and he's seemingly telling he was intimate with both) are Rachel and Gabby, two women we know had hometown dates," Carbone reported in his blog.

"The shot of Sarah crying was squeezed in from another point in filming since we know Sarah didn't make it to Iceland."

The Bachelor fans are therefore assuming Gabby and Rachel finished as Clayton's Final 2 bachelorettes; however, Carbone is not convinced that's the case.

"Certainly looks that way, but with the way the editing works and how tricky they can get sometimes, the only thing we know for sure is that whole scene happens in Iceland," Carbone explained.

"Saying they're the Final 2 because that's the only two you see there with their backs to us, I don't know yet. Maybe it is and the show just gave away their Final 2."

Carbone noted, however, that he'd like to think producers are "smarter" than just giving away Clayton's Final 2 bachelorettes in a pre-season trailer.

Clayton's winning bachelorette pick has yet to be reported

There is no spoiler out there yet revealing Clayton's winner and whether he got engaged at the Final Rose Ceremony.

"I don't know the ending yet," Carbone wrote in his blog on December 16, 2021, adding that Clayton is "most likely engaged."


However, Carbone is sure Clayton ended up with one of his Final 3 bachelorettes -- Gabby, Susie, or Rachel -- and the contestants have been instructed not to say a word about the show's ending or post anything on social media that could give it away.

"I've heard rumblings about all three since filming ended," Carbone reported.

He added, "I'm leaning towards one person based on info told to me, but again, until I get the confirmation I need, there's no need to tell people what I'm 'hearing.'"

But Carbone assured his readers, "When I'm confident I know who he picked, I'll let you know."

Although Clayton never revealed whether he's currently in a happy relationship or engaged, he did tell Us Weekly that he left The Bachelor with zero regrets.

"I definitely was not perfect. I did some things wrong," Clayton told Us.

But that doesn't mean Clayton has a desire to rewrite history or take any of his decisions back.

"I think for me, I realized that I can't say that I have any regrets because if I would've done things differently, would it have been my 100 percent authentic journey? And I think the answer to that is no," Clayton explained.

"So what I did and every moment while I was there was what I thought was right. Does that mean it was right? Probably not, no."

Clayton said while he's an imperfect human and made some wrong moves, "I did everything under my volition and what I thought was best."

"And so for that, I'm like, 'You know what? You stayed true to yourself, and you developed some battle scars along the way, but that's just what life is,'" he said.
