“I was nominated, I never actually signed up,” he said on the “Raising the Bar” podcast. “I turned it down over, and over, and over again. I actually finally committed to it four days before everyone was supposed to leave for the show. And the only reason I committed to it was because Clare was announced [as the] Bachelorette at that time.”
Moss, 32, revealed that he never watched the ABC show, but he was enamored by Crawley’s “presence.”
“When she was announced on Good Morning America and came out, and she was so confident and passionate about it,” he said. “From that little interaction, I just believe that we already had something at that moment. And that’s really what compelled me to kind of go on the show in the first place.”
Crawley, 39, “blew up” The Bachelorette when she realized she only had eyes on the athlete. As a result, the blonde beauty left the resort with Moss by her side — but not before he got down on one knee and popped the question.
"You embodied everything that I want in a man. I’m just so in love with the man that you are,” she said at the time.
"From the moment I stepped out of the limo, this was so special," he gushed. "I know without the shadow of a doubt that you would go to the end of the world for me and I’ve never had that. I’m so grateful for that,” he shared.
Soon after, the lovebirds began to get settled into their normal lives. However, a bump in the road occurred when Moss was spotted with some other ladies while out and about in New York City. The South Dakota native was seen "getting affectionate" with one woman who was not Crawley, a source told OK! at the time.
Fortunately, the two seem to be in a great spot these days. On January 9, the hairstylist posted a photo of herself kissing her man while in California.
“My dad said this, ‘when someone’s souls connect, everything else will work itself out,’” he said on the podcast. “At the core, when you see, and believe in someone and what they’re all about, you can really make anything work.”
Sounds like these two are just meant to be!
