Cupid struck very fast for the 16th star of the ABC dating show -- maybe even before she stepped in front of ABC's cameras.

The Bachelorette star Clare Crawley is reportedly already smitten with one of her suitors just 12 days into filming the ABC dating show, and now an insider says details are sketchy regarding her lightning-quick love connection.

Two weeks into the 16th season of The Bachelorette, an insider told Life & Style that Clare and contestant Dale Moss “won’t say exactly when cupid struck,” making it appear as though they may have some previous history together.

“People are wondering if it was love at first sight when she and Dale met up in Palm Springs two weeks ago?” the source questioned, in reference to the show’s quarantined location at La Quinta Resort & Club.

Clare, who at age 39 is the oldest Bachelorette star ever in the history of the rose-filled reality series, reportedly blindsided producers when she told them she had “already fallen in love” with the NFL player and wanted to stop filming. Even by Bachelor standards, two weeks is fast to fall head over heels.

To make matters worse, the leading lady then “refused to come out of her room” to continue on with her season, leaving producers in a panic.

While there is no doubt that Clare signed to The Bachelorette for the “right reasons,” the fast turnaround and rumors that she has quit the show point heavily to the theory that she may have had contact with Dale prior to meeting him on-camera. In an unprecedented twist this spring, Clare found out the names and ages of her 32 original suitors when production had to shut down due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Many of her suitors were recast during the shutdown – one, Matt James, was even named The Bachelor — but Dale was one of the guys who stayed on. He not-so-surprisingly received Clare’s first impression rose once production finally began last month, four months after it was originally scheduled to begin. That left a lot of time for off-camera contact, a theory that spoiler king Reality Steve is not quick to dismiss.

In a series of tweets, seen here, the blogger wrote, “If Clare is sprung on Dale & she wants to leave, I can’t for the life of me believe it was bc the first time they met and spoke was on July 18th, the first day of filming. Hell, I HOPE that’s not the case. Some sort of pre-show relationship is the only thing that makes sense to me.”

He later revealed that while he has “no idea” for sure if Clare and Dale had been talking pre-show, it is quite possible they could have been texting and even Facetiming going back as far as March, when production for The Bachelorette was put on hold.

If the rumors about Clare are true, it wouldn’t be the first time she quit a Bachelor-related series mid-production. In 2014, the California hairstylist quit the first season of Bachelor in Paradise after questioning her relationship with then-suitor Zack Kalter.

Gardner Minshew has exactly the response youd think to not catching COVID-19

Jacksonville Jaguars quarterback Gardner Minshew claims the coronavirus ran away from him in a hilarious interview. 

Jacksonville Jaguars quarterback Gardner Minshew continues to steal American hearts. The second-year quarterback stole the show during his rookie campaign with the Jags, and now looks to take things to new heights in his first season as the team’s starting quarterback.

When it comes to his magic off the field, Minshew’s persona delivers time and time again. Take early on this week for example. Minshew was placed on the NFL’s Reserve/COVID-19 list, but was already removed from it 24 hours later.

When Minshew was asked about what happened, he delivered a quote that’s sure to go viral on Twitter.

Gardner Minshew is entering his first full season as the Jaguars’ starting quarterback

“I did not contract the virus, it took one look at me and ran the other way,” Minshew joked. “Probably in its best interests.”

Folks, how could anyone not love this young man? Minshew’s fame began to rise during his final year in the college ranks. He was a grad transfer at Washington State from East Carolina and helped Mike Leach and the Cougars win a program-best 11 games in 2018. That season included a win over Oregon for ESPN’s College GameDay and a victory over Iowa State in the Alamo Bowl.

The Jags then used a sixth-round pick on Minshew in the 2019 NFL Draft. When Nick Foles suffered a broken collarbone in the first game of the season, it opened the door for the ‘Mississippi Mustache’ to get some serious playing time in. Minshew didn’t disappoint, throwing for 3,271 yards and 21 touchdowns in 14 games.

Minshew Mania will be alive and well in Jacksonville this season. While there were plenty of concerns he had come in contact with the coronavirus, Minshew is doing just fine and is looking forward to leading the Jacksonville offense.
