Clare Crawley is one lucky lady! The Bachelorette season 16 star Zoomed with Ryan Seacrest on-air on Wednesday, October 14, on the heels of the premiere episode and dished on that moment when she met her potential "husband” Dale Moss.
In case you missed it, Clare declared to producers just moments after meeting Dale: "I definitely feel like I just met my husband. I'm shaking."
“I’ve told everybody this is one of those things where I’m a confident woman … and that just really knocked me off my feet and took my breath away,” she recalled of the moment when the former NFL player stepped outside of the limo at La Quinta Resort in Palm Springs, where they filmed the season amid COVID-19 quarantine.
“If you asked me prior to this I would have been like, ’Is [love at first sight] real?’” Clare admitted, revealing that it was for her when she laid eyes on the hunk. “Dale walked out of the limo and everything — keep in mind it was 120 degrees out at midnight and I was like beating sweat — but when Dale walked out of the limo, everything went dark. … It was like this slo-motion of him and I and this electricity between him and I.”
Of course, Clare can’t reveal just exactly what happens but rumor has it the season 16 bachelorette quits the season early for Dale.
“I remember telling everybody all the time I’m so just really thankful for the opportunity in the middle of the pandemic to have 31 men show up for me,” she added. “… He’s just a really well-rounded guy. … They chose really amazing men. … I was not disappointed, I’ll tell you that!”
