Now in tears, Clare told the cameras, “Talking to a woman like that, I don’t care what was done. I didn’t even doing anything to that man. Sick, sick! I’m the oldest Bachelorette that’s 39, that’s standing here, that’s single because I didn’t settle for men like that.”
The other men should’ve done the same, because Clare later admitted to “falling in love” with Dale during her confessional.
Additionally, this move gave Dale a foot up regarding the rose ceremony, since the cocktail party was cancelled, meaning the rest of the men didn’t get their chance for some one-on-one time. But as the saying goes: you snooze, you lose!
The Bachelorette airs Tuesdays at 8 p.m. on ABC.
