It's been widely reported Clare fell in love with bachelor Dale, a 31-year-old model and former college basketball and football player from Brandon, SD, just 12 days into filming The Bachelorette's sixteenth season and quit the show as a result.
A source previously told Life & Style that Clare even "refused to come out of her room" at one point to film dates with other men.
Clare therefore allegedly ended The Bachelorette process early in order to pursue a serious relationship with Dale, and so producers were left scrambling in terms of how to proceed with the show.
Late last month, shortly after filming wrapped, Harrison teased on Instagram, "It's safe to say this season will be twice as good as any other!"
What remains to be seen is whether more men were brought to the resort to date Tayshia, giving her a full roster of The Bachelorette suitors, or if she only had Clare's remaining men to choose from.
Us Weekly previously reported the production team began tracking down some of the 42 potential suitors -- who were announced in July as a revised list of candidates from the original 32 men unveiled back in March -- to come back and film for Tayshia given they had already quarantined amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
Clare and/or Tayshia's official and final set of bachelors who will star onThe Bachelorette's sixteenth season will be confirmed at a later date.
The Bachelorette's new season was supposed to begin production in March and premiere on May 18, but global health restrictions in light of the COVID-19 pandemic had shut down nearly all Hollywood productions.
