Clare Crawley appeared on The Bachelor: The Greatest Seasons—Ever! Monday night to share insider info on her season of The Bachelorette for the first time. Chris Harrison replayed Juan Pablo Galavis' dramatic season and invited Clare for a live interview after airing her infamous speech during which she shut down Juan Pablo for making inappropriate comments to her off camera.
Clare spoke with Chris from the L.A. abode that she was quarantining in for the weeks prior to filming The Bachelorette. Even though the interview happened before filming began, she still had plenty of scoop to share. The bachelorette-to-be disclosed that since this go-around takes place during quarantine without all of the adventurous dates and traveling will be "different" than ever before "in the best way possible."
"I want somebody who is not excited about traveling to the wonderful locations, which is great and awesome to be able to go do those things, which I've done before. But this is more of what I'm looking for—just one-one-one connection or multiple connections. And just having the time to get to know each other way better and not having to focus on anything greater than that. It's the most important thing."
When The Bachelor host mentioned that she will likely leave the show an engaged woman, she became giddy at the idea of meeting "the man of her dreams." She marveled at how she wasn't anxious but surprisingly calm, and even excited, about filming.
Chris also addressed her infamous breakup speech that he'd just aired. He asked if she would do anything differently or say more to him if she could go back in time. She admitted that it took awhile for her to come to terms with the moment, but was ultimately satisfied with how the life-altering event went down. However, after the fact, she said that she wished she could thank Juan Pablo because without that happening, she wouldn't be who she is today.
She also wants to let fans know that she forgives him. She has let go of any resentment and is continuing to use the breakup for personal growth.
She shared that her mom is just as excited for her daughter to star on The Bachelorette as she is. Even though the season hadn't started yet at that point, her mom has been calling consistently and asking if she has a ring on her finger yet. If the Dale Moss rumors hold up, Mama Crawley must be very happy right now.
