Clare Crawley is our reason for waking up in the morning. This spunky girl is a gift from the Bachelor gods — in fact, she's the gift that keeps on giving. Clare's already made quite a splash on Juan Pablo Galavis's season of The Bachelor, and we have a feeling her time in the spotlight is nowhere close to being over. We'd love to see this girl be crowned ABC's next Bachelorette, and here are 5 reasons why. Read 'em and weep, y'all.

(Actually, please don't weep — we get enough of that from our little Clare Bear.)


1. She Knows What She Wants

There's no doubt about it: Clare is one of the most ruthless ladies on The Bachelor. She's obsessed with Juan Pablo, will do anything to win his heart, and isn't afraid to amass a group of haters while doing so. Watching Clare devour Juan Pablo's mouth during their kissing sessions is kind of like watching a Bachelor Nation fan-girl devour a vat of wine. It's a beautiful thing, and Clare's cut-throat behavior would be more than welcome on The Bachelorette.

2. She's Sexy and She Knows It

Is it just us, or are all of ABC's most recent Bachelors and Bachelorettes total puritans? Emily Maynard refused to sex-up randoms because of her daughter, Ricki; Sean Lowe morphed into a virgin because of his brother from another mother, Jesus; and Juan Pablo will hardly kiss anyone thanks to being on daddy duty 24/7. But Clare? We have a feeling this vixen won't have any problem getting up close and personal with contestants on The Bachelorette and thank god. If the fantasy suite is a-rockin', don't come a-knockin. And haters: there is nothing wrong with this, got it? Save your slut shaming for someone who doesn’t know that you’re using double standards to judge grown women.

3. She's Ready for Love

Clare seems genuinely eager to find love on The Bachelor, and honesty is definitely the best policy when it comes to The Bachelorette. It's easy to tell when these ladies are doing the show just to be on television rather than to find a soulmate (not to name any names...), but Clare's heart is 110 percent in the right place. We have no doubt that she'd take her love journey on The Bachelorette super-seriously, and maybe even end up walking down the aisle toward the man of her dreams!

4. She's Kinda Crazy (In the Best Way Ever)

Look, we love Clare, but let's be real. Girlfriend is slightly off-beat in an "I'm prone to bouts of ugly-crying, vomit-eating, and vengeful side-eying kind of way." That being said, the "unique" Bachelorettes are the most fun to watch, and we love how off-kilter Clare is. Can you imagine the kind of dates she'd make her bachelors to go on? At least one of these dudes would be forced to throw himself off a bridge, bungee cord optional, that's all we're saying.

5. She's Fashion Forward

We have yet to recover from Lululemon Gate 2013 — aka Desiree Hartsock's season of The Bachelorette. After being gifted with Emily Maynard's amazing style, Desiree's love for yoga pants was somewhat of a let down, and we're dying to see a Bachelorette with a passion for fashion. Sure, Des is a dress designer and apparently loves clothes that aren't made of elastic, but Clare works to make people prettier, and we have a feeling she'd pull out all the style-stops as the next Bachelorette!
