The coronavirus outbreak in the United States has halted production on Clare Crawley’s season of The Bachelorette, but that doesn’t mean she’s stopped her search for love!

In fact, the 38-year-old took to Instagram on Tuesday, March 17 and encouraged her fans and viewers to continue submitting eligible men for her Season 16, especially with the return to filming still unclear.

“I feel like since we have a break in the show right now, I don’t think it’s too late to submit people. So, submit them, why not? What’s the worst that could happen?” she said.

Just hours after 'The Bachelor' wrapped, ABC dropped photos of the 32 contestants in the running for Clare's heart in Season 16.

This news also comes just one week after ABC released the 32 contestants who would be competing for her love in 2020. Because of Clare’s age, fans were a bit confused to see that more than half the men in the cast are in their 20s.

Needless to say, people took to Twitter to share their confusion over the casting news and to ask why producers decided to cast so many younger men.

Host Chris Harrison also shared his thoughts on the show casting new guys in another Instagram Live video. “It’s not such a bad idea, I mean it’s not out of the realm of possibility,” he stated.

“The thought that 25, 30, 35 guys, everybody that was able to take time off and come on the Bachelorette is going to be able to come back again whenever we do this — ‘cause we don’t have a set time of when we’re gonna come back … the idea that everybody is going to be able to take off work and do this again [is] probably very slim.”
