Did 'Bachelorette' Clare Crawley Just Confirm a Huge Switch-Up Rumor?

Does Bachelorette Clare Crawley have her phone back? And if so, why?

The 39-year-old appears to have liked a tweet sometime on the night of Sunday, Aug. 2 … and it’s not just any tweet.

Amid swirling tabloid rumors that Crawley is no longer ABC’s acting Bachelorette and has been replaced with franchise fan favorite Tayshia Adams during filming, Crawley’s account liked a tweet about Adams being the Bachelorette.

The new season of The Bachelorette has been filming in quarantine lockdown for weeks in the Palm Springs area, outside of Los Angeles. Typically, leads of the franchise’s shows are without cell phones or any other media during the duration of filming.

Filming of the season should’ve happened earlier this year, but was put on hold because of the COVID-19 pandemic. Crawley waited in quarantine to finally get her chance at love, and her cast was even changed up during the holding period, with some of the men being replaced. On July 15, ABC announced the 42 men who could have a chance at Crawley’s heart.  

Of that list, 25 were new names and 17 stayed from the original contestant pool. There were 15 men that were cut from the original list, including, of course, Matt James, who was announced in June to be the next Bachelor. Crawley’s new group of suitors range in age from 25 to 40 with the majority of the men in their 30s — following calls from fans to see more age-appropriate men for Crawley, which host Chris Harrison supported. 

Adams, who appeared on Colton Underwood’s season of The Bachelor, was reportedly in the running to be the Bachelorette this cycle alongside Crawley and franchise alum Tia Booth, told ET just days before Crawley’s announcement that she’d love to get the gig. 

“I don’t know if I can say yes or no!” Adams said with a laugh, when asked in late February if she’d had official conversations about being the Bachelorette. “I plead the fifth!”

“I have to say, anything that comes my way, I am ready for,” she shared. “I am ready for love!”

Adams also appeared on last season of Bachelor in Paradise, where she struck up a romance with John Paul Jones, but the pair split in October.

ET has reached out to ABC and Warner Bros. for comment on whether Adams is the new Bachelorette. A change in lead mid-filming would be a first for the franchise.
