‘The Bachelorette’: Why Clare Crawley Burned Her Juan Pablo Galavis Finale Dress

As soon as Clare Crawley was announced as the next bachelorette, old clips from her time on Juan Pablo Galavis’ season began to circulate, most notably the fragment of their break. In the clip, Clare is wearing a long, fireplace dress with a silver belt. She tells Juan Pablo that she would never want her children to have a father like him, and she storms.

During her second week of Am Bachelorette, Clare burns the tea dress she would have kept for six years.

Clare Crawley’s date with Jason

Clare’s date with Jason was very emotional. At the start of the date, Clare told Jason that she chose him because she felt he relied on humor as a way of coping, as she is. He confirmed her suspicions and although Jason was upset, the two went on with an open-ended night together.

In their first activity they wrote down things they were told about themselves who were hurt, things they wanted to let go of.

Clare wrote things like: Needy, hard to love, too picky…

Jason wrote down: Manipulative, cold, and mean.

At the end of the date, she pulled out the teal dress.

“I don’t know if you recognize this,” she told Jason. “This is the dress I would wear at the end of the season Am Bachelor that I was on. It was one of the most difficult times of my life. But I have gone through the cure. And this dress, honestly, means nothing to me. ”

And so they threw him into the fire.

Clare valued Jason for being so supportive of her story and open about his own struggles on their date, so he walked away from the fire with a rose crushed to a shirt.
