Clare’s ‘Bachelorette’ Cast’s Instagrams Will Help You Get To Know The Guys

It’s taken a while to get to this point, but the contestants for Clare Crawley’s season of The Bachelorette have been finalized… well, almost finalized, at least. On July 14, The Bachelorette Facebook page posted photos of 42 men who "could be" on the upcoming season. Although some might be cut before the show actually starts, you might want to check out all of the potential cast’s Instagrams for Clare’s Bachelorette season to get prepared for what’s to come.

The current batch of 42 potential Bachelorette contestants contains 25 new names — which means only 17 of the originally announced group of 32 men are still potential contestants. This recasting doesn’t come as a surprise. When Chris Harrison explained to ET’s Lauren Zima that Clare’s Bachelorette season was delayed due to coronavirus in a March 17 Instagram Live, he also said they would likely have to reevaluate the cast — since, you know, not everyone can just take two months away from their job to pursue love on a whim, and then do it again because of a pandemic. Even before Harrison’s announcement, fans thought a recast should happen, mostly because the majority of men originally cast on Clare’s season were under 30 years old, and she’s 39. The new batch of contestants are now closer to her age.

Filming for Clare’s season was supposed to begin in March but was pushed back due to coronavirus safety concerns. Luckily, it appears things are back on track. Us Weekly reported on July 14 that the contestants will film, date, and quarantine in one location (the La Quinta Resort & Club in La Quinta, California) to reduce the risk of coronavirus, and The Daily Mail captured footage of Clare filming at the resort on July 15.

A lot of Clare’s suitor’s Instagrams are private at the moment — likely because they’re in the midst of filming and can’t let any secrets slip out — so you might want to check back on them once the show gets closer to airing in the fall to see if they switch back to public. Nonetheless, some men’s accounts are still public as of July 20 and they provide a bit of insight into what their lives looked like before they started being followed by cameras.

Clare’s season of The Bachelorette does not yet have an official release date, but here’s hoping it premieres soon. In the meantime, find me here while I hit "refresh" on this page and hope more of the men go public on IG, because what’s a Bachelorette season without some social media digging?
