The Bachelorette has not yet publicly acknowledged the fact that Clare will fairly quickly exit the show and be replaced by Tayshia, but there have been teases and it sounds like we might be able to count on the season premiere to give us a tease of what’s to come.
As the ABC press release says, “On this special premiere night, Bachelor Nation will be rewarded with the first glimpse at the shocking moment that will change the course of this passionate, crazy journey, unlike any other in franchise history.”
Towards the beginning of his announcement, Chris also alluded to the drama.
“There are a lot of rumors flying around,” he said. “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.”
Sources confirmed to E! News in early August that Clare falls so in love with the recipient of her first impression rose that she decides she no longer needs to continue with the show, which is when Tayshia steps in.
