Not being able to find love in the following season, Crawley opted out on her own and left the show. However she returned to The Bachelor years later but to no avail she wasn’t able to make a connection once again. Later during the reunion special, Benoit Beauséjour-Savard proposed to her and she said yes. Unfortunately after a few months the couple broke things off as they agreed that they couldn’t be together.

Clare Crawley is currently 38 years young and approaching 39 in the coming weeks. Once the new season premieres, she will be the oldest Bachelorette ever to lead the show. Be sure to check out season 16 of The Bachelorette as it will premiere in the spring.
