Clare Crawley is getting ready to meet her husband.
And she’ll have quite a few men from whom to choose.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, combined with The Bachelorette producers scrambling to find older men to compete for the 39-year old’s heart, there will be more suitors than ever before on Season 16.
According to Chris Harrrison, a total of 31 men will be housed in a giant California resort — but only one will be chosen as Clare’s potential soulmate.
“There are a lot of rumors flying around,” Chris Harrison has said of The Bachelorette spoilers that claim Crawley will be replaced by Tayshia Adams. “I just want to say right now:
“You may think you know everything but you don’t. It is a season you have to see to believe.”
