Clare's 'Bachelorette' Cast's Instagrams Will Help You Get To Know The Guys

Updated:

It's taken a while to get to this point, but the contestants for Clare Crawley's season of The Bachelorette have been finalized. On July 14, The Bachelorette Facebook page posted photos of 42 men who "could be" on the upcoming season. Then, on Sept. 29, Chris Harrison got on Facebook Live to reveal the actual, narrowed- down list. And now, here's the list of the official cast's Instagram handles for Clare's Bachelorette season to get prepared for what's to come.

There's been a lot of back and forth regarding the Season 16 cast. When Chris Harrison explained to ET's Lauren Zima that Clare's Bachelorette season was delayed due to the coronavirus in a March 17 Instagram Live, he also said they would likely have to reevaluate the cast — since, you know, not everyone can just take two months away from their job to pursue love on a whim, and then do it again because of a pandemic. Even before Harrison's announcement, fans thought a recast should happen, mostly because the majority of men originally announced for Clare's season were under 30 years old, and she's 39. The new batch of contestants are now closer to her age.

Of course, this is to say nothing about what might happen if/when Tayshia takes over as the Season 16 lead, which many publications have reported will happen. (ABC is not commenting on these reports). It's unclear if Tayshia will pick up where Clare left off, dating the same guys, if she'll get a whole new cast of suitors, or something in between.

So, let's just focus on the here and now: A lot of Clare's suitors' Instagrams are private at the moment — likely because they can't let any secrets about the show slip out — so you might want to check back on them once the show gets closer to airing to see if they switch back to public. Nonetheless, some accounts are public, and they provide a bit of insight into what their lives looked like before they started being followed by cameras.
