Next Bachelorette Clare Crawley Confides in a Raccoon in Newly Resurfaced Video​

Are you unfamiliar with the next Bachelorette, Clare Crawley? This resurfaced video is just the thing to introduce you to the 38-year-old star.

In honor of Crawley’s anointment as the star of season 16, fans did some digging and found an old video of the contestant confiding in a raccoon (LOL) during season one of Bachelor in Paradise.

Here’s what you need to know: Crawley was upset with fellow contestant AshLee Frazier, who described Crawley’s behavior on The Bachelor as “cuckoo.” So, Crawley stormed off and talked to a producer about her frustrations.

In true BiP form, ABC cut the footage to make it seem like Crawley is confiding in a raccoon, who just so happened to be in the area, rather than the producer.

“I don’t want drama! This is f*cked up, to put me in this situation,” Crawley says in the clip. “This is something that I dreamt about…I don’t want to have upset somebody that creates drama.”

Crawley goes on to reveal that she’s suffering from more than just a broken heart. “And then I got bit by fire ants and it, like, it just sucks!” she says. “I’m so eaten up. I look like I have chicken pox. Look at this!”

Hey, at least Crawley didn’t mistake a pomegranate for an onion like Ashley S. on Chris Soules’s season of The Bachelor. Now that is unforgivable.
