The Fairytale Bachelor ‘Winter Games’ Engagement is Over

First Ashley I and Kevin broke up :(

Now Clare and Benoit have ended their engagement.

The two fell in love after they both exited The Bachelor’s Winter Games but kept in touch, started dating, and got engaged on the reunion show. Clare had previously “retired” from Bachelor Nation after being mistreated by Juan Pablo and having a bad time in Paradise.

The couple announced their split in a beautiful Instagram post:

“We understand A lot of you have been asking about our relationship since the show, and we wanted to thank you all for the love and respect as we navigated it in real life off camera.

We do understand however, having a public engagement on TV kind of changes that. It’s with a heavy heart that we have mutually decided to end our relationship. We think the world of each other, and we were both hoping we could make this work. I’m sorry that this may not be what you want to hear, but it’s our truth. Just know there are no negative feelings here, we are simply two people who believed in love, and were open enough to give it a chance. We still care for each other very deeply (That is why no hate or disrespectful comments will be tolerated about the other.) Please respect our privacy as well, as with the end of any relationship, it is never easy. Thank you for your understanding and love while we have shared our vulnerability with the world.

❤️Clare & Benoît”

You look back and you just feel stupid.
You can’t forgive yourself for falling
or believing all the lies.
You reread every text.
You relive every memory.
And it all starts making sense —
he never wanted love.
He only wanted attention.
He only wanted validation.
