Fans of hilarious hijinks immediately fell in love with Clare Crawley on the Season 18 premiere back on January 6. The smiley gal faked a pregnancy belly in a dress that looked as amazing in maternity style as it did in svelteness once it was revealed that she was JUST KIDDING, YOU GUYS! Since that day, we have definitely gotten to know Clare a whole lot better, and it makes sense that you'd wanna know how much longer we have to get to know her.
One of the biggest questions? Will Juan Pablo be the man who gets to watch the DVD Clare’s late father made for her future hubby? In her packaged intro, CC got teary talking about how her father passed away, leaving her the video that she has pledged not to watch until she gives it to the man who will be her Mr. Crawley.
Well, after Clare was gifted the first 1-on-1 of the season, complete with a Winter Wonderland some poor interns had to construct for her to skate and tub and sled in, she's definitely had a target on her back. Add in the fact that she got the first kiss and has the magic powers to make sure that Juan Pablo breaks all rules to touch her luscious lips, and we have a feeling we'll know everything about her by the time this thing is over.
In a full-season promo, there is plenty of Clare/Juan Pabs action, in all sorts of exotic-looking locales, meaning we'll get to see a lot more of her. However, if Reality Steve's spoilers are correct, Juan Pablo is not going to get a peek at that DVD. In fact, Steve is teasing a major blow for Clare — and not the one that The Bachelor has released of the Vietnam episode on February 3, which involves her and JPG crying...
According to Steve, Clare makes it all the way to Juan Pablo's final two, but she gets the ole heave ho, finishing second. The promo also shows that fighting between Clare and Nikki only intensifies throughout this season, so we could be set up for a rivalry for the ages.
Apparently Clare's pain will be epic. As Steve tweeted on January 6, "I've just been told something. The crash and burn heartbreak Clare is being set up for is going to reach ‘epidemic proportions.’ So there." He added that he doesn't know for sure if Juan Pablo does see the DVD, "but I gotta imagine he does cuz why even have her bring it up if that wasn't the plan? We'll see." Yep, we had a feeling that if ABC kept having her talk about that secret vid, something has to come of it. Right?
It sounds like “we’ll see” on a lot of things, including whether this spoiler is legit. Maybe Juan Pablo actually does choose Chris Siegfried Clare, and the two are living happily ever after across the coasts of this great country.
What do you think: Would Clare make an amazing wife for Juan Pablo or is she better suited to be the perfect Bachelorette for Season 10?
