(WEHT) – Clare Crawley, who made her ‘Bachelor’ nation debut on Juan Pablo Glavis’ season of ‘The Bachelor’, was announced as the next Bachelorette on Monday.
The announcement was made Monday morning on ABC’s “Good Morning America.” Crawley, 38, was an alum of Juan Pablo Galavis’ season of “The Bachelor.” She also participated in “Bachelor in Paradise” as well as The “Bachelor Winter Games.”
Crawley revealed on the morning show that she found out she would be the next “Bachelorette” this past weekend.
At 38 years old, Crawley marks an increase in age for the “Bachelor” nation leads. Peter Weber, the current “Bachelor,” is 28. His predecessor, Colton Underwood was 26 when he appeared on the show. The previous “Bachelorette,” Hannah Brown, was only 24 when she appeared on the show.
Crawley’s age may be an advantage for the franchise. After a dramatic season of “The Bachelor,” some fans expressed hopes for an older cast for the next show.
