Bachelorette Clare Crawley Is Back on Instagram—Here’s What It Means

We’re seriously intrigued now that Clare Crawley has reactivated her Instagram account for the first time since beginning production on The Bachelorette.

Earlier this week, the Bachelor Nation star, 39, made her highly anticipated return to social media by sharing a candid video on her Instagram Story. The clip (screenshot below) features Crawley dancing to “Palm Springs Summer” by Cabana Ace, along with a GIF that reads: “thankful,” “grateful” and “blessed.”

It’s important to point out that Crawley also shared The Bachelorette promo on her page that same day. However, this is the first time we can confidentially confirm that Clare is now controlling her feed, versus a producer.

So, what does it all mean? There’s a good chance The Bachelorette has already finished filming season 16. The timing makes sense, since the show has been in production for a little over a month, and it usually takes about six weeks to complete.

Not to mention, Chris Harrison recently teased a wrapped season when he posted an Instagram Story with the caption, “Good to be home!”

We first learned about Crawley’s involvement back in March when ABC named her as the lead of The Bachelorette season 16. Production was delayed due to the coronavirus, which forced the network to recast some of the suitors. After some unforeseen events, Crawley stepped down as the Bachelorette, allowing ABC to replace her with Tayshia Adams.

If you need us, we’ll be combing through Crawley’s feed in search of her rumored mystery man and for confirmation that she is, in fact, engaged.
