Clare Crawley is the Next ‘Bachelorette!’

Here she comes! Clare Crawley will be turning heads next season in The Bachelorette.

This morning on Good Morning America, Clare was announced as this year’s star.

“I literally just found out,” she said. “I mean, six years later. What is happening?”

Fellow Bachelor Nation stars Tayshia Adams, Tia Booth, and Kelsey Weir, Bachelor Peter Weber’s ex, were also rumored to be in the mix.

Of course, Clare was the runner-up of Season 18 in 2014, which featured the polarizing Juan Pablo Galavis in the title role.

“Honestly for me, the most important thing is the man who will take off his armor, is strong, open himself up and be vulnerable,” she said this morning. “I want a man that can do that.”

Season 16 of The Bachelorette will premiere Monday, May 18. We can’t wait!
