After watching Clare put up with Juan Pablo on ‘The Bachelor’, it would have been so satisfying to see her find love on the upcoming season of ‘The Bachelorette.’ So why didn’t she get picked for the sought-after role? HollywoodLife.com can EXCLUSIVELY reveal the shocking reason why the bubbly blonde was passed up.
Have you been wondering why Andi Dorfman was named the next Bachelorette, instead of Clare Crawley? Turns out the higher-ups behind the popular show couldn’t look past the pretty blonde’s sexual antics with Juan Pablo Galavis, an insider tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY.
Clare Crawley’s Sex With Juan Pablo: Why It Ruined Her ‘Bachelorette’ Chances
After witnessing how poorly Juan Pablo treated Clare on The Bachelor, we would have loved to have seen her find a true gentleman as the next Bachelorette.
But apparently Clare’s sexual dalliances with Juan Pablo ruined any chance she had of nabbing the role.
“Producers were toying with the idea of choosing Clare to be the next Bachelorette. She is certainly a fan favorite after all the drama that went down with her and Juan Pablo,” an insider tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “But the higher-ups felt like they couldn’t pick Clare because they would upset and even lose certain viewers who looked down upon her for having sex with Juan Pablo.”
Perhaps Juan Pablo’s final rose winner, Nikki Ferrell, also had some say in the decision, considering how tight she is with Andi.
“They felt Andi would be a safer choice even though she’s not a fan favorite. She’s also Nikki’s new best friend. In the end, it’s all about ratings anyway,” the source says.
Clare Slams Juan Pablo On ‘Bachelor’ Finale
At least Clare’s final appearance on The Bachelor left her looking like the ultimate winner.
The brave Sacramento native was able to deflate Juan Pablo’s ego with a few choice words, namely that she would never want a man like him to be the father of her children! Ouch!
What do YOU think, HollywoodLifers? Should Clare have been named the next Bachelorette? Are YOU bummed that she lost out because of being intimate with J.P.? Let us know.
