It’s time for Episode 2 of The Bachelorette featuring Clare Crawley. Spoilers tease there will be some incredibly cringeworthy moments, but the entertainment may come to a halt earlier than viewers would like.
During Tuesday night’s show, Clare will have her first dates with her guys. ABC notes she will have one individual date and two group dates.
Former professional football player Jason Foster will get the first one-on-one, and it seems he will reveal some heavy-duty details about his childhood.
One group date will challenge nine suitors to show how well they communicate through languages of love. The other outing will involve an intense battle of dodgeball and spoilers indicate things will get quite revealing.
According to a sneak peek shared on The Bachelorette‘s Instagram page, bachelor Brandon Gross will get some one-on-one time with Clare. He’ll tell her that he felt he had to be on the cast when he found out she would be handing out the roses. He says she’s gorgeous, but then runs into trouble after that.
Clare will ask Brandon what else it was about her that made him want to be there. He’ll admit he really doesn’t know anything about her other than that she’s from Sacramento and she’s gorgeous.
It appears that she won’t even try to hide her annoyance with this. She’ll go on to wonder why he’s even there if he can’t name anything he likes about her. Could this lead to an immediate elimination for Brandon?
Ahead of Episode 2, spoiler king Reality Steve shared a few additional tidbits via his blog. He noted viewers would not see a rose ceremony at the end of Tuesday’s show.
It used to be that production almost always ended each week of The Bachelorette with a rose ceremony. However more and more often in recent seasons, those dramatic eliminations have been carried over to the following week. This means there’s usually a dramatic cliff-hanger of some sort, and it appears they’re utilizing the same strategy for Clare.
This approach also allows production to stretch out Clare’s journey a while longer. Teasers have previously detailed Clare and Dale Moss fall for one another so hard right away that the series shifted gears. It’s said they brought Tayshia Adams in to do her own mini season.
Reality Steve noted that by stretching out the rose ceremonies, this seemingly gives the network five episodes with Clare before the big shocker with the Tayshia switch.
The premiere showed Clare saying she thought she’d met her husband after her introduction to Dale. This soon becomes a major problem for the rest of the guys on The Bachelorette and fans may see that begin with Episode 2 Tuesday night.
