Dale, a 32-year-old from Brandon, SD, had to jump through hoops to appear on The Bachelorette's 2020 season amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic given he had to wait about four months for filming to begin after ABC had announced him as one of Clare's potential suitors all the way back in March.
Not only did Dale have to display patience, but he also had to quarantine and get tested for COVID-19 before meeting Clare at The Bachelorette resort in Palm Springs, CA.
However, all of Dale's effort probably seemed worth it once Clare laid her eyes on Dale for the first time and flashed a huge smile.
In a trailer ABC released on Monday for the new The Bachelorette season -- which premieres Tuesday, October 13 at 8PM ET/PT -- Clare admitted to cameras it felt like she had just met her future husband after welcoming Dale into the cocktail party.
Reports have also swirled Dale was an early frontrunner and Clare found herself pretty smitten with the bachelor right off the bat.
So did Dale have what it takes to outshine the competition and sweep Clare off her feet?
Dale hosts a podcast titled "The Game Plan with Dale Moss," which features interviews with pro athletes and sports industry professionals, uncovering their "gameplan" for achieving personal and business growth.
Standing 6'4" tall, Dale excelled in college basketball at South Dakota State University and only played one year of college football in his final year of eligibility, so basketball technically paved the way to his NFL career.
While he never played in an NFL game, Dale had brief stints with several NFL teams
Dale signed with Green Bay Packers as an undrafted free agent after he went undrafted in the 2012 NFL Draft, however he was cut before training camp ended that August.
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers then signed him to their practice squad, but let him go in November, resulting in Dale ending the 2012 NFL season on the Chicago Bears' practice squad.
However the Bears cut Dale the following spring in June 2013, leading to a short stint with the Carolina Panthers during training camp for the 2013 season that ended with him being released before the NFL season began.
After sitting out the 2013 NFL season as a free agent, Dale was signed by the Bears again in July 2014, however he didn't survive the team's training camp cut for the 2014 NFL season -- ending his attempts to play in the NFL.
