The Bachelorette 2020 has certainly delivered on host Chris Harrison's promise that the latest season of the show would be 'the most dramatic ever'.

After coronavirus restrictions saw the whole production of the The Bachelorette 2020 moved from the usual Bachelor/Bachelorette mansion to the La Quinta Resort in California, the cameras had not long started rolling on season 16 when rumours started circulating that there was trouble in paradise. 

Reports suggested that the original Bachelorette 2020, Clare Crawley, had quit the show after falling in love with one of the contestants and had refused to continue filming. 

We now know those reports were true and the whole drama has played out on screen in season 16, from Clare's dramatic exit to the arrival of the brand new Bachelorette for 2020.

Who Is The Bachelorette 2020?

Clare Crawley, 39, was originally cast as The Bachelorette 2020. But, after her sudden and unexpected exit from the show, fan favourite Tayshia Adams, 30, was drafted in to take her place.

Tayshia first became known to fans of The Bachelor when she appeared on Colton Underwood's season of the show. She also took part in the sixth season of Bachelor in Paradise.

After failing to find lasting love on both shows, the 30-year-old Californian Instagram influencer was the top pick for the producers to replace Clare and her arrival on The Bachelorette 2020 has so far been a hit with viewers.

Who did Clare Crawley end up with?

Clare quit The Bachelorette 2020 because she fell in love with one of the contestants, Dale, a former pro-footballer from South Dakota.

The pair were plagued by rumours that they had broken the rules of the show and actually started talking or even dating before filming commenced, but they have strongly denied this. Clare told Chris Harrison: "There was never ever any contact or communication through any source or any kind between us." With Dale also confirming: "Clare and I never once spoke, never communicated, never talked, never texted [before the show]."

Clare and Dale's chemistry was evident on screen and the few episodes that Clare did appear in where heavily focused on her growing feelings for him.

After Clare decided to quit the show to pursue her relationship with Dale, the Bachelorette aired a special episode that saw Dale propose to Clare.

In response to sceptics who argued that the couple had moved too fast and questioned whether the proposal was a stunt for TV, a newly engaged Clare told Chris Harrison: "I'd be lying if I said it didn't hurt me. Here is something that I have finally found that makes me so incredibly happy – to my core – to finally feel this type of love that I have been craving and wanting…I just wish people could be happy for us."
