Television career

The Bachelor

Crawley first appeared as a contestant on Juan Pablo Galavis's season of The Bachelor, where she made it to the final two but was rejected in favor of fellow contestant Nikki Ferrell.[6] During her time on The Bachelor, she and Galavis went out at night to swim in the ocean together, which Galavis later called a mistake as he did not want to set a bad example for his daughter.[7] After Galavis rejected her, Crawley called him out for the inappropriate language he used regarding their time together, which was met with widespread praise by viewers.[8]

Bachelor in Paradise

After The Bachelor, Crawley appeared on the first two seasons of Bachelor in Paradise; however, she was unsuccessful in finding love and left voluntarily on both seasons.[9][10]

Bachelor Winter Games

Crawley returned for The Bachelor Winter Games, where she was involved in a love triangle with Christian Rauch and Benoit Beauséjour-Savard.[11] Although Crawley left alone, the reunion special on February 22, 2018, revealed she and Beauséjour-Savard had gotten back together offscreen. Beauséjour-Savard proposed to Crawley on stage, and she accepted.[12] On April 6, 2018, the couple revealed they had broken up.[13] Beauséjour-Savard later returned for season 5 of Bachelor In Paradise.

The Bachelorette

Crawley was announced as The Bachelorette on March 2, 2020, on Good Morning America.[14] This appearance makes her the oldest Bachelorette in the show's history, taking over from Rachel Lindsay who was 32 on her season.[15]

Personal life

Outside of her work on television, Crawley is a hairstylist at De Facto Salon in Sacramento, California.[16][17] She is engaged to Dale Moss.[18]
