    Everything You Need to Know About New ‘Bachelor’ Clayton Echard

    Big news from the unhinged world of Bachelor Nation: Clayton Echard is our new Bachelor! Obviously, Clayton is brand-new here due to the fact that he is only now appearing on a Bachelor franchise TV show. Yet! This dude is a contestant on Michelle Young’s season of The Bachelorette and has already started filming his Bachelor season despite being an active contestant on the season airing right now.

    So…why Clayton? According to a Page Six source, “The caliber of men who came on to Michelle’s season was incredible. Each guy was hotter than the next and so many of them treated her like a queen. There was so much excitement about a lot of them. Clayton was no exception.” Apparently, Clayton specifically “impressed everyone on-set and is definitely a big upgrade from any of Katie’s guys.” [Editor’s note: lol.]

    Casting an entirely unknown Bachelor ahead of the Bachelorette even airing is a definite first for ABC (although, to be fair, they haven’t formally announced Clayton just yet), but it kinda makes sense. Producers will be in complete control of Clayton’s Bachelorette edit to make sure a Greg Grippo Situation™ doesn’t happen (reminder: Greg was well-liked until fans called him out for gaslighting Katie Thurston during their breakup) and presumably they will do their best to ensure that he becomes a fan favorite. Which shouldn’t be too hard—Clayton seems like a pretty down-to-earth guy based on what we know about him thus far! Because yes, we’ve already done an exhaustive deep dive based on available intel, so let’s get into it:

    Clayton Is an Orthopedic Sales Rep

    Wow, sexy! Nothing says “can’t wait for overnight dates” like orthopedic sales, you know?

    Anyway, it seems like Clayton loves his job, looks good in scrubs, etc., and hopefully, we’ll learn more about his work on The Bachelor.

    He’s Also a “Former Freestyle Rapper”

    At least according to his Insta bio. Like, do I have a horrible sinking feeling that this inevitably means we’re going to be forced to watch Clayton freestyle about roses, love, and being there for the “right reasons” multiple times in the next year? Yes. But let’s remain optimistic.

    Clayton Is From Eureka, Missouri

    Here he is chilling with his mom in his home state, where much of The Bachelor is expected to be filmed:

    He’s Super Into Working Out

    Truly, about half Clayton’s Instagram pics are devoted to lifting, so clearly this is a big passion of his. Like, the caption of this post is longer than the last book I read.

    He’s a Former Football Player

    Freestyle, orthopedics, and football? The holy trifecta.

    According to Variety, Clayton played college football at Mizzou and was signed to the Seattle Seahawks back in 2016. Nowadays, he jokingly describes himself as a “washed-up athlete” in his Insta bio, so obviously, the whole football thing didn’t work out for very long—but it’s still a major accomplishment in his journey!

    We Need to Discuss His Brother

    Say it with me: Cannot wait for Hometowns:

    And Actually, Clayton’s Super Close to His Entire Family

    Looks like he has three brothers, and all of them are pretty tight with their mom and dad. If Clayton makes it to Michelle’s final four, we could meet them during her Bachelorette Hometowns. Otherwise, they’ll almost definitely be making an appearance during his season of The Bachelor.

    That’s all we know about Clayton so far, but we’ll be adding to this post as the internet brushes off more information. Especially when it comes to his previous relationships and how far he makes it on Michelle’s season!
