Clare Crawley starred as The Bachelorette. Much like Clayton Echard during The Bachelor finale, Clare made a number of seriously controversial moves during her season. She fell in love very early on with Dale Moss, even stating she believed she met her husband the moment he walked out of the limo on night one. She then left with Dale, allowing Tayshia Adams to take her spot as the new star of the show.

Bachelor Nation fans closely followed Clare and Dale’s breakup. Now, Clare’s getting involved in Clayton’s season. She and Kaitlyn Bristowe, Michelle Young, Rodney Mathews, Cassie Randolph, Nick Viall, and Jesse Palmer took to the stage to watch Clayton’s finale live.

“Alright, so we are here for the finale tonight, you guys,” Clare says on her Instagram Stories on March 14. She then posted multiple videos of her showing up in her blue dress and connecting with the other alumni.

Are Clare Crawley and Blake Monar dating? Nick Viall reports the truth

With Clare Crawley returning for Clayton Echard’s Bachelor finale, fans are curious about her relationship status. Are Clare and Blake Monar dating?

The two sparked dating rumors in January 2022, Us Weekly reports. They first met on Clare’s season of The Bachelorette. An insider noted Clare met Blake’s family, with whom she “bonded quickly.”

“Their friendship has blossomed into something really special, and she’s letting it roll organically,” the source stated. “Things are progressing between Clare and Blake since reuniting earlier this year. Even though they live in different states, they talk daily.”

Where do they stand now? Nick Viall, who joined Clare live to watch Clayton’s finale, gave a report on his Instagram Stories. On March 14, 2022, he posted a photo of Clare out at a bar. “Relationship update … single and thriving,” he wrote over Clare’s photo.

What happened between her and Dale Moss?

Before the dating rumors surrounding Blake Monar, Bachelor Nation couldn’t stop talking about Clare Crawley and Dale Moss. Clare and Dale left The Bachelorette engaged, but they called off their relationship twice after that. Given what Clare posted online, it seems the breakup was messy. There were rumors that Dale had cheated or used Clare for fame. Ultimately, it seems Dale didn’t want the relationship. She later reflected on what occurred.

“My biggest regret is trusting the process, trusting a man — a man’s words and who he showed me he was,” she said on the Whine Down podcast, according to People. “I don’t think that that’s a regret, like, I trusted somebody, I believed somebody that they were who they said they were or that they would hold up to the promises that they make when they get down on one knee.” 

” … It’s painful when you feel like somebody who you love deeply doesn’t even have enough respect to take you to sit down and have a very vulnerable conversation and owning your stuff on both sides, you know, and just having a conversation,” she added. Clare then noted she’ll “gladly hold the door” for men she dates who want to leave her in the future.

The Bachelor finale continues on March 15, 2022, at 8 p.m. EST on ABC.
