Clare Crawley's Former Fiance Benoit Beausejour-Savard Defends Her Exit From 'The Bachelorette'

Benoit Beausejour-Savard is opening up about Clare Crawley‘s exit from The Bachelorette.

The 33-year-old Bachelor Winter Games alum was engaged to Clare back in 2018 before they split and just recently opened up about Clare‘s turn as The Bachelorette, which has been filled with a lot of controversy and drama.

Speaking with fellow Bachelor stars Ben Higgins and Ashley Iaconetti on their “Almost Famous” podcast, Benoit suggested that it was not Clare‘s decision to leave and revealed that the show isn’t showing people the real her.

“She has some good qualities than right now what we’ve seen it’s only [the] drama part,” he said. “Clare is a really deep person. She likes to get to know you on a really deeper level, which is not showing at all.”

Benoit adds that the Clare he and the audience is seeing on television is “not the Clare that I know” because of the dramatic editing.

“Put yourself into her shoes, you’re doing quarantine in a resort. This show’s a bit [of a] mindf***, you’re been there, it’s a lot to manage and I feel like at some point maybe she was overwhelmed by all of this,” he shared. “She felt super strong feelings with Dale and then this whole thing played out…There’s a little difference in the Clare that is shown on TV than the Clare that I know in real life.”

“I think ultimately it was production that came at her and said, ‘You know what, Clare, I feel like you’re not giving it a fair chance, you’re really into Dale [Moss] so we want you to be happy’ and they had like a common agreement on her maybe leaving the show but I feel like it wasn’t her ultimate decision.”

As ABC has finally addressed that Tayshia Adams would be taking over the role, Benoit says that Clare will still be featured.

“I feel like there’s going to be more, they’re going to keep us in touch with what Clare has been going through,” he said. “It’s like two seasons at once at one point and hopefully we’re gonna see how it goes for these two … it’s not the end.”

The Bachelor: Winter Games' Clare & Benoit End Engagement

It’s over for Clare Crawley and Benoit Beausejour-Savard, the couple who got engaged on the finale of The Bachelor: Winter Games.

The reality stars, Clare from The Bachelor USA and Benoit from The Bachelor Canada, took to Instagram on Thursday (April 5) to announce their split.

“We understand A lot of you have been asking about our relationship since the show, and we wanted to thank you all for the love and respect as we navigated it in real life off camera. We do understand however, having a public engagement on TV kind of changes that. It’s with a heavy heart that we have mutually decided to end our relationship,” the former couple wrote in the post.

“We think the world of each other, and we were both hoping we could make this work. I’m sorry that this may not be what you want to hear, but it’s our truth. Just know there are no negative feelings here, we are simply two people who believed in love, and were open enough to give it a chance,” Clare and Benoit added. “We still care for each other very deeply (That is why no hate or disrespectful comments will be tolerated about the other.) Please respect our privacy as well, as with the end of any relationship, it is never easy. Thank you for your understanding and love while we have shared our vulnerability with the world.”
