One person in Kaitlyn Bristowe’s corner is Clare Crawley. As Monday night’s episode of The Bachelorette aired, Clare, who was the runner-up on Juan Pablo Galavis’ season of The Bachelor, then went on Bachelor in Paradise, tweeted her support for Kaitlyn.
Clare praised Kaitlyn for allowing herself to be so vulnerable, yet keeping it together enough to continue through with the show.
It takes alot of strength to be be vulnerable so cheers to @kaitlynbristowe for keeping her heart open and powering through the process💓

Viewers saw Kaitlyn cry a lot of tears on Monday night’s episode. After having sex with Nick Viall, Kaitlyn worried about the ramifications. She especially worried about Shawn Booth finding out that she had sex with Nick. When Shawn Booth confronted her about her true feelings for him several times, Kaitlyn burst into tears. She pleaded with Nick to keep their sex a secret.
If it ends up that Shawn doesn’t get engaged or start a committed relationship with Kaitlyn Bristowe, he may very well become the next Bachelor. As previously reported by the Inquisitr, Shawn’s name was one of the two, the other being Ben Zorn, most mentioned by hopefuls at a recent The Bachelor casting call.
Kaitlyn has received a lot of criticism for her behavior on the show. As the episode aired, she hit back at her critics. Kaitlyn pointed out that she’s a real person who is sharing her real, rather than fake, reality.
Do you watch to see flawed, relatable people? Or unattainable alternate reality. #TheBachelorette— Kaitlyn Bristowe (@kaitlynbristowe) June 30, 2015
Kaitlyn also explained why she cried so much.
No sleep, full heart, a lot of emotions, a lot of pressure = tears— Kaitlyn Bristowe (@kaitlynbristowe) June 30, 2015
She admitted that she even surprised herself with how much she cried.
I didn't even know I had that many tears in me— Kaitlyn Bristowe (@kaitlynbristowe) June 30, 2015
While the current season of The Bachelorette starring Kaitlyn Bristowe has been full of sad tears, viewers are likely to see a more light-hearted and fun love competition in Season 2 of Bachelor in Paradise. As the promo aired for the spin-off, Clare Crawley, who returned to the show for another chance of love, tweeted that it gave her a flashback moment.
The promo for Season 2, which premieres on Sunday, August 2, shows Clare, while filming Season 1, breaking down and talking to a producer about wanting to leave after Zack Kalter wouldn’t commit to her. On Season 1, the producers edited it so that it looked as if Clare was talking to a raccoon. For the Season 2 promo, the producers edited it so that the raccoon talked back to Clare. Will Clare leave paradise in love or disappointed again?
Viewers will also see the return of Marcus Grodd and Lacy Faddoul, at least for a short bit. Last week, Us Weekly reported that Marcus and Lacy, who got engaged on Season 1, actually got married and filmed the ceremony for the spin-off.
Besides Clare Crawley, Season 2 of Bachelor in Paradise will show Jillian Anderson, Ashley Salter, Jade Roper, Carly Waddell, Ashley Iaconetti, Tenley Molzahn, Juelia Kinney, Dan Cox, Kirk Dewindt, Jonathan Holloway, and Mikey Tenerelli. On Tuesday morning, People reported that two men from Kaitlyn Bristowe’s season will also be seen on Bachelor in Paradise:JJ Lane and Tanner Tolbert. More contestants remain to be announced.
