ABC recently announced the 31 bachelors who will be competing for Clare's heart when Season 16 of The Bachelorette premieres Tuesday, October 13 at 8PM ET/PT on ABC, pending the schedule for the NBA Finals.
On Night 1 of filming, the bachelors did everything they could to stand out from the pack, whether that meant pulling up in a Rolls Royce or a station wagon.
An attorney found Clare "guilty as charged for looking spectacular in her sensational first-night dress" and a former football star ran through a "Your Future Husband" banner, according to ABC.
Another former athlete even sported a baby-bump belly, paying tribute to Clare's arrival on Juan Pablo Galavis's season of The Bachelor, and one bachelor made an early impression when he wasn't supposed to.
"Time stands still for Clare when one man steps out of the limousine, taking her breath away," ABC teased.
But that "powerful moment" was topped when Dale Moss, a 31-year-old model and former college basketball and football player from Brandon, SD captured the First Impression Rose, according to Reality Steve spoiler blogger Steve Carbone.
Clare found herself impressed with all of the men and their energy, and she said she felt confident her husband was among the 31 suitors.
However, one man revealed a secret that pulled Clare's focus away from the other men.
According to Carbone's September 30 blog post, Clare eliminated seven of her 31 bachelors on Night 1, which left 23 guys in the running for her heart.
The seven men Clare reportedly eliminated on the first day of filming included AJ Jalawan, a 28-year-old software salesman from Playa del Rey, CA; Chris Conran, a 27-year-old landscape design salesman from Salt Lake City, UT; and Jeremy Higgins, a 40-year-old banker from Washington, District of Columbia.
Clare also ousted Jordan Manier, a 30-year-old cyber security engineer from Santa Monica, CA; Mike Tobin, a 38-year-old digital media adviser from Calgary, Alberta, Canada; Page Pressley, a 37-year-old chef from Austin, TX; and Robby Stahl, a 31-year-old insurance broker from Tampa, FL, according to Carbone.
After Clare went on dates and got to know her bachelors better, she reportedly sent seven more suitors packing over the course of the second and third Rose Ceremonies of Season 16.
According to Carbone, Clare was actually only a part of three Rose Ceremonies in total before she left the show.
Seven more guys were reportedly eliminated over the course of those two Rose Ceremonies, and the eliminees included Blake Monar, a 31-year-old male grooming specialist from Phoenix, AZ; Brandon Goss, a 28-year-old from Cleveland, OH; and Garin Flowers, a 34-year-old professor of journalism from North Hollywood, CA.
The following men were also reportedly dumped by Clare: Jordan Chapman, a 26-year-old software account executive from New York City, NY; Tyler Smith, a 36-year-old music manager from Georgetown, TX; Yosef Aborady, a 30-year-old medical device salesman from Daphne, AL; and Zach Jackson, a 37-year-old cleaning service owner from St. George, UT.
Yosef was technically eliminated before a Rose Ceremony because he got into an argument with Clare about one of the group dates he wasn't able to participate in, Carbone reported.
"For a guy with a daughter, he sure sets a horrible example this season. I'll be curious to see exactly what they show of his conversation with Clare (some of which we've seen in the promos), but I've been told it wasn't pretty," Carbone reported on September 30.
Yosef allegedly called Clare names and was very rude to her and so The Bachelorette star kicked him off the show.
The BacheloretteChris Harrison previously teased on Facebook that Yosef will be a controversial character this season, reportedly adding, "If something is on his mind, he's gonna say it."
Although Carbone isn't certain, he believes Clare will only appear in four episodes of Season 16 this fall and then the show will transition into The Bachelor alum Tayshia Adamsstepping into Clare's shoes and taking over the show.
So how did Clare's journey to find love reportedly end?
It's been widely reported that Clare fell in love with Dale 12 days into filming and she was so completely smitten with him that she decided to leave the show prematurely and pursue a real relationship with him.
In terms of how Clare supposedly fell in love with Dale so quickly, Clare previously admitted she had researched some of her 32 potential suitors who were announced back in March, before filming got postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic.
(A revised list of 42 bachelors was released by ABC in July, and then the final and official cast of 31 bachelors for Clare's The Bachelorette season was unveiled in late September).
Given The Bachelorette didn't begin filming until mid-July, Clare had a total of four months to google some of the men and check out their social-media accounts, including Dale, who was one of 17 original cast members announced back in March to appear on Season 16 and date Clare.
"This season you'll get a Clare and Dale love story... I do know they're still together, and probably engaged. Do I know for a fact they're engaged? No. But I assume they are based on things I've heard," Carbone reported.
After Clare left the show, her replacement, Tayshia, was reportedly left with the 16 remaining men but was introduced to several other new bachelors to date as well.
"As far as I know, none of the guys left the show once Clare left and Tayshia came in," Carbone claimed.
However, Carbone has disputed the reports out there that Clare "quit" the show and even "locked herself in a room" at one point because she didn't want to date any of the other men after falling for Dale.
Carbone also refuted an Us Weekly report from earlier this summer claiming The Bachelorette producers were left frantic and "scrambling" over how to proceed with the show after Clare allegedly blew up The Bachelorette.
Carbone insisted in his September 30 blog that production knew all along -- from even before filming began -- that Tayshia would replace Clare as the show's star mid-season.
Producers could reportedly tell in Clare's pre-production interviews that she was crazy about Dale and would probably develop strong feelings for him that she wouldn't be able to hide as filming progressed.
"The reports that came out during filming of production being caught off guard, Clare putting them in a tough spot, they didn't know what to do, etc. is all BS," Carbone wrote.
"I can report to you that this was in production's plan before Clare's season started. They knew Clare would be removed at some point during this season and replaced as the Bachelorette by Tayshia," Carbone wrote.
