Clare Crawley's season of The Bachelorette definitely started out with a bang! Not only did her suitors dress up for the occasion — some more than others; we're looking at you, guy with the straight jacket — but they also pulled out all the stops. Who could forget when Chasen Nick arrived in a suit of armor or when Bennett Jordan pulled up in a Rolls Royce?
Of course, as the night went on, some drama occurred at the resort. Tyler C. accused Yosef of messaging women from his hometown on social media, but Yosef denied the accusations and told Crawley about what had happened. The hairstylist sat the two men down and had them work out their issues with one another before she removed herself from the awkward situation.
Unfortunately, Tyler C., Page, Chris, AJ, Jeremy, Jordan M., Mike and Robby were all sent packing.
The next day, the California native didn't seem to mind if people were suspicious that she fell for Moss too quickly. "What exactly is the formula for falling in love?" Crawley asked during a Tuesday, October 13, interview with .
"Is there one way to do it? Is there one example of this is how it’s done?" she continued. "Who are these people to decide how long it takes somebody to fall in love? Is it a week? Is it a month? Is it a year? Is it two years?"
So far, season 16 is full of twists and turns, and with Crawley exiting the show with Moss, there is much more drama to come.

Why Was Benoît Beauséjour-Savard Not Featured In Clare’s Promo Package?
Beauséjour-Savard and Crawley got engaged after they competed on The Bachelor Winter Games in 2018 — and it looks like there's no bad blood between the exes.
