The 'Bachelorette' Season 16 begins today, October 13, and we will see more than 30 gorgeous men try to woo Clare Crawley. The show, even though too corny at times, somehow appeals to a large section of the audiences and they've all been waiting with bated breath in anticipation for this season to start. The situation this time around is a bit different as by now every Bachelorverse fan knows how the season is going to end for Clare.

For those still under the rock, 'Bachelor' alum Clare was a part of Juan Pablo Galavis' season. She was one of the suitresses who ended in the top 2 and during the final rose ceremony, she called out Galavis for behaving inappropriately with her and she was instantly upheld as the poster girl of female empowerment among fans. She then went ahead to star in a number of spin-off's of the hit franchise and eventually was cast as the 'Bachelorette' on Season 16.

Clare is known to do things differently and she continued her streak this time around as well as she walked out of the show after 12 days of filming. She did so with her suitor Dale Moss, the one who made her feel like she met her husband the very instant they first interacted with each other. From whatever information is out there about Moss, Clare seems to have made the perfect choice.

He's an athlete, model, creative director and a philanthropist and that mug is irresistible. It's the first time in the show's history that a move like this has been pulled by a frontman/frontwoman. It might seem like Clare had it all, a whole season and a beautiful man, but make no mistake because the recent trailer of the show reveals that she had to bear the brunt of the walk-out stunt she decided to pull. 

"I expected more from the oldest Bachelorette," said one of the suitors in the new trailer in a snarky tone as he appeared to be walking away from a seething Clare. The age-shaming incident shook Clare up but she took it in her stride saying that she might be the oldest Bachelorette and single at 39 but that's because she "refused to settle" for men like the one who just age-shamed her.

The rest of the suitors too joined in on the disrespect and were ready to stage a walk-out of their own, at least 15 of them were ready to do so, according to the new trailer. 

After the trailer went live, one might have expected that Clare would be shown some support by fans of the show. However, that isn't the case as show-watchers refuse to rally behind her this time.

"Trouble. Always been trouble. Remember when she got engaged on stage to the young French guy after Winter Games? Sheโ€™s a mess and the guys seem crazy," wrote a fan. "Okay, so,... just tell me when Tayshia's part begins!!" wrote another. "Bachelorette starts tmrw.... i just want Clare to leave ASAP so that I can see Tayshia," wrote another. Someone tell me when Clare leaves the bachelorette so I can watch @TayshiaAdams.Thanks!" read another tweet.








'The Bachelorette' airs on Tuesdays at 8 pm ET on ABC.
