The starting of most interviews are often lighthearted, which is why I’m a bit of thrown after I begin chatting with The Bachelor‘s Clayton Echard. I jokingly ask whether or not he is obtained one in every of ABC’s press mailers that included an enormous Bachelor physique pillow, and his reply is sort of telling. “I have one, but not with me,” he says. “I need a shoulder to lean on right now, so I wish I had one.”
Hmm. Now, in all equity, that might imply a lot of issues. This is The Bachelor in any case. Clayton’s simply been within the scorching seat on the Women Tell All taping, and dealing with almost 20 ladies you have dated—or simply Shanae—may ship anybody operating for canopy. Or for the closest physique pillow.
It’s for that cause that I feel nothing of his remark till later within the interview, when he reveals this beautiful piece of information: “I don’t think anyone expected my journey to end the way that it did, including myself, nor did I want it to be that way. Everyone will be kind of surprised. I wish it could have went any other direction, but it went the direction that it did.”
What?! Not to be all dramatic, but it surely certain appears like no matter occurs on the remaining rose ceremony in Iceland subsequent week is not “final” in any respect. We already knew the remaining three ladies do not react nicely to discovering out that Clayton was in love with every of them and intimate with two of them, however this sounds much more severe than that. It seems like Clayton’s not the one one who wants a Bachelor physique pillow—viewers might want to cling to at least one for consolation too.
But first, the fantasy dates are so as after which the two-night finale subsequent week. So simply what’s going on? And what does Clayton want he may return and alter? Here he opens up about all that and a complete lot extra.
Glamour: So when did you progress to Scottsdale, Arizona, and why?
Clayton Echard: I moved December 27, to be precise. I took a street journey from Missouri. Nineteen hours right through, and I’m now residing with my brother, who lives there. It’s been enjoyable. It has made the fixed journey again to L.A. rather more palatable. It’s solely a 55-minute flight versus an eight-hour journey day after I was going to and from Missouri. It felt like the most effective factor for me to do within the brief time period.
Since you’re now residing along with your brother, do you know that one in every of your brothers DM’d Teddi on Twitter?
[Surprised.] No. Did she say which one?
Teddi mentioned she’d allow us to determine it out. She by no means responded to him despite the fact that she mentioned it was harmless however considerably unusual.
My brother instructed me he was going to achieve out to her. I did not know he really did that, however he was undoubtedly . I’m certain many different persons are too, so he’ll need to get in line. I can not imagine he went via with that. My brothers are unfastened cannons.
