A lot of people had something to say when Clare Crawley was announced as the next Bachelorette on the ABC dating reality show. However, no one was quite as complimentary as her ex-fiancé, Benoît Beauséjour-Savard.
Benoît took to Instagram to share his thoughts on Clare’s big news.
“Congratulations to this gem!!,” he wrote alongside a loving photos of the ex-couple. “She will be an amazing Bachelorette. She is smart, fun, strong, knows what she wants and most importantly, she will call out the guys messing around!! Hell yeah!! Good Luck on your journey to find love @clarecrawley !! You will be the best 🙌🏼 #thebestbacheloretteever,”

Clare and Benoît became a couple after they met on another Bachelor produced dating show, The Bachelor: Winter Games, where bachelors and bachelorettes from around the world gathered at a winter resort to compete and, hopefully, find love with 12 of America’s Bachelor contestants.

While Clare left the show without finding live, it wasn’t until after the show that Benoît reached out to Clare to share his feelings.
“The second I got back to Sacramento, I checked my phone and I had a message from a guy,” she said in the finale. “Timing was so off but it was so perfect for me because it was a man that just cared about if I was Okay.”
That man was Benoît. He proposed on the stage in front of millions of Bachelor Nation fans. Sadly, the union did not last. The couple announced their split on Instagram.
” It’s with a heavy heart that we have mutually decided to end our relationship,” they shared 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. We still care for each other very deeply (That is why no hate or disrespectful comments will be tolerated about the other.)”
The fact that the two still care about each other is evident in Benoît’s very loving and complimentary post to his ex. We wish Clare luck as she continues her search for love as The Bachelorette.
