If you didn’t think “The Bachelorette” could get more dramatic, it just did. Back in March, ABC announced that 39-year-old hairdresser, Clare Crawley would be the 16th Bachelorette this season. Weeks later, production for the iconic reality show was put to a halt due to the coronavirus pandemic. When production resumed in July, Crawley decided she didn’t want to continue filming the show because she had fallen in love with one of the contenders. So who will be replacing her? Tayshia Adams from season 23 of The Bachelor! As if that twist wasn’t big enough, the show will not be filmed at the classic Bachelor mansion and instead will be filming at the La Quinta Resort & Club due to the ongoing pandemic.

Season 5 will feature new characters, new beginnings and of course more drama. Justin Hartley, who plays Kevin, said “Some of the relationships you’re used to seeing on a certain level-that’ll be flipped a little bit because of the circumstance. New things start to happen. Not all good.” He added, “you’ll get the same Pearson experience, laughing and crying.”
The show will focus on different character’s past where viewers get a glimpse of where their modern-day issues stem from.
