Clayton and Susie’s Love Story

While Clayton and Susie are happy together now, their journey was not always easy. After the season finale of The Bachelor aired in March of 2022, Evans and Echard announced their relationship to the public.

Their reunion split Bachelor Nation, with many wondering why Evans left during the Fantasy Suites episodes after learning that Clayton Echard had been intimate with other contestants Rachel Recchia and Gabby Windey while they were all in Iceland.

After a very messy finale, Clayton and Susie’s relationship was up in the air, but now they are happier than ever. Rachel and Gabby are now going to star together in the next season of The Bachelorette!
