Default ABC reportedly will announce its oldest-ever Bachelorette: Clare Crawley

Good Morning America is expected to announce Monday that Clare will be the next Bachelorette, according to Reality Blurred. Clare, who turns 39 on March 20, would be an unusual choice since she's in her late 30s and isn't currently on this season of The Bachelor. In fact, she's an alum of Juan Pablo Galavais' The Bachelor season in 2014. She also appeared on The Bachelor Winter Games in 2018 and Bachelor in Paradise. Rachel Lindsay is currently the oldest previous Bachelorette, starring on the ABC reality show at age 32. Last year's Bachelorette, Hannah Brown, was 24.


The Bachelorette made a progressive move in selecting Clare Crawley as its oldest star

Crawley, a The Bachelor, Bachelor in Paradise and The Bachelor Winter Games alum who will turn 39 later this month during production of The Bachelorette, was reportedly chosen in response to the backlash over Peter Weber's Bachelor contestants being too young with an endless stream of petty fights and immature confrontations. A source tells E! News that the producers "knew they were losing viewership and needed to change it up." As Amy Kaufman, author of the book Bachelor Nation: Inside the World of America's Favorite Guilty Pleasure, points out, Crawley's selection isn't just groundbreaking. "The fact that Clare has been named the bachelorette after all of this is, frankly, powerful," says Kaufman. "She is a 38-year-old woman who has unabashedly spoken about her intense desire to be married and have children. She has tried to find love and she has failed. But by casting her as the lead, the show has made ó and I canít believe Iím saying this ó a progressive move. Itís a choice that flies in the face of societal expectations for straight women, positioning an unmarried woman in her late thirties not as desperate, but as desirable and worthy of love." Kaufman adds: "Before I get too carried away, Iíll pause to say: This is still The Bachelorette. Clare is conventionally attractive ó thin and blond and curvy. Sheís also white and heterosexual. And Iím willing to bet that the dudes who show up at the mansion in a bid for her heart wonít be sporting dad bods. In other words, The Bachelor franchise still has a very long way to go when it comes to accurately representing its viewership. But Iíd also be lying if I didnít say that for the first time since I started watching this show, I feel seen by it." ALSO: The Bachelor bosses finally realized the pitfalls of basing a season around contestants too young to rent a car.
