‘The Bachelorette’: Fans Are Rooting for the Older Men on Clare Crawley’s Season — Spoiler Alert — There’s Not Very Many

When Clare Crawley came out for the “After the Rose” ceremony on The Bachelor, she only had five minutes to chat with Chris Harrison. Typically, they introduce The Bachelorette to a few of her future guys; however, Peter Weber‘s season did not leave room for that. 

ABC released photos of the men on Mar. 11, 2020. Currently, only nine of the guys are 30 or older. Crawley is turning 39, so fans thought more of the men might be older. Let’s take a look at who fans feel has a chance with The Bachelorette. The season did not get off to a great start — filming was postponed due to COVID-19 — however, the guys are ready to go.

Clare Crawley’s season of ‘The Bachelorette’ only has one contestant older than her 

Bret Engemann, 42, from Provo, UT, is an Executive Business manager for Powell Lane Enterprises, a health company owned by T.V. co-hosts Chris and Heidi Powell. He is divorced with two sons, Rome and Cole, who are 15 and 12-years-old.

“And he is the ONLY ONE older than her,” wrote one appalled fan on Twitter. “Looks like one other is exactly her age. Others are so much younger. This makes no sense. When she’s 50 this is going to be a problem. Who would want this? I married younger, but only four years younger & that’s ENOUGH, let me tell ya.”

Fans are outraged at the number of young guys on Crawley’s season. However, they did find a few of the older ones might end up promising for Clare. At this point, fan-favorites are Aaron and Dale.
