Red herring or too crazy to invent? The Short degree the franchise is known for fooling fans with carefully crafted previews, but Clayton EchardThe season 26 trailer appears to be filled with more spoilers than ever.
Before the season premiere on Monday, January 3, ABC released a promo in which Clayton, 28, appeared to tell three women he was in love with them and inform two women that he was “intimate” with both of them. The revelations rocked Bachelor Nation as speculations ramped up about how the Missouri native’s journey would unfold.
“[Doozy] – that’s a good word to choose, “Clayton said exclusively Us Weekly earlier this month as he reflected on his season. “There are a lot of words you can choose: chaotic. It’s absurd to see the promos, of course, I’ve experienced it, but I’m ready to see it again. There are certain things that [I didn’t see]. I was not present 24/7 with all the women, so I will see things for the first time on my own. And I can’t wait to see what it looks like. Obviously, I’ve heard a lot of the drama that I wasn’t there for, but now I’m like, ‘OK, maybe I’ll catch someone who told me a story that maybe doesn’t exactly match what I’m seeing.’ “
Although the former footballer admitted making mistakes while filming, he embraced his missteps.
“Can’t say I have any regrets because if I had done things differently, would it have been my trip 100% authentic? And I think the answer is no, “he reasoned.” So what I did and every moment while I was there was what I thought was right. Does that mean it was right? Probably not, no. I mean, I definitely wasn’t perfect. I did some things wrong, but I did it all under my will and what I thought was best. And so for that, I’m like, you know what, stay true to yourself and have developed some battle scars along the way, but it’s just like life is. “
Amid preconceptions about his season, Clayton said We that in certain situations there is more than meets the eye.
“You can see [in the] promo – what was shown – it was shocking for women to hear him and rightfully so, “he said of his sexual confession.” I understand that. Most importantly, I’m a very transparent person and I know there are questions about, you know, ‘Why did he say that?’ … Just understand that once the show airs, the whole scene will unfold and there will be an explanation and people will understand – or at least they will be able to see the full picture of what really happened the way it is. success .”
