*Warning: Spoilers ahead*
Production on Clare Crawley’s season of The Bachelorette just recently resumed after being postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic. Although ABC previously released a list of men that will vie for the 39-year-old’s heart, there’s a good chance we’ll never see some of their faces on TV.
As it turns out, ABC invited 42 (!) suitors to meet Crawley, which included 10 alternates. So, even though the network had only 32 spots on the show, they brought in additional men to add more variety and then sent them home before the filming began. Ouch.
As E! News points out, the evidence is right in front of us. Since contestants are required to set their social media accounts to “private” during filming, we can tell who’s no longer in the running based on the status of their Instagram pages.
