The outside, if you line up all the guys I\u2019ve dated in the past, there\u2019s no one type physically. It\u2019s more if they go out of their way for me, if they make me feel special. This is about me now. I\u2019m ready for it." Clare also previously appeared on the spin-off Bachelor in Paradise twice. She also attended the Bachelor Winter Games in 2018.
