Bachelor: Clayton Echard Reveals How He Was Cast In Michelle’s Season

The Bachelor season 26 star, Clayton Echard, revealed how he was cast on Michelle Young’s season of The Bachelorette and why he thought it was a scam.

The Bachelor season 26 lead Clayton Echard revealed how he was cast on Michelle Young’s season of The Bachelorette. Clayton, a 28-year-old medical sales representative from Missouri, had only eight minutes of screen time on Michelle’s season, but he made enough of an impression on the producers that he was asked to be the next Bachelor. Clayton made a splash with his entrance, as he emerged from the limousine with a yardstick and had Michelle hit him on his backside with it. He meant for this to be a playful joke about teachers, and elementary school teacher Michelle laughed about it. Throughout the season, Clayton participated in several group dates, one of the most memorable being the “Ultimate Viking” challenge, during which the men dressed in Viking costumes and ate traditional Viking delicacies such as cow brains, tongue, and cheek. Clayton won this challenge and received the group date rose.


In his last appearance on the show, Clayton showed a much softer side. After a group date during which Michelle’s students built pillow forts and had heart-to-heart conversations with Clayton, they chose him to have a one-on-one dinner with Michelle. Michelle decided not to give Clayton the rose on this date. After he left, he cried and shared privately that the only thing that he wants in life is a wife and children. This vulnerability led many viewers to believe that Clayton would be announced as the next Bachelor, and they were not wrong. However, this was a controversial decision because many fans felt that Clayton was not the right choice for the lead role.

In an interview with Becca Kufrin and Serena Pitt on the Bachelor Happy Hour podcast, Clayton revealed how his journey with the Bachelor franchise began by sharing how he was cast on Michelle’s season. Clayton had never watched the show before, so he did not send in an application. Instead, he shared, “I was reached out to on social media.” He said that it was funny because, right before this happened, he did not have an Instagram account and had only created one because he felt like he was out of the loop with his friends who had moved away from Facebook. Clayton did not want to download the Instagram app, but then realized that he had to in order to see the content. After that, the show contacted him.

Clayton admitted that he was skeptical at first when he received the message from the show. He said, “Of course I thought it was fake. I was like, ‘Okay. This is probably some spam.'” He said that he then went step-by-step through the process, “and now I’m all the way on this side of it.” Clayton progressed from being a contestant on The Bachelorette all the way to taking on the lead role of The Bachelor.

It is funny to think that if Clayton had continued to resist creating an Instagram account, then none of this would have happened. It also would not have been possible if Clayton had ignored the message from the show because he thought it was fake. Clayton’s path to finding love has been unconventional, but hopefully he will find his happily ever after at the end of his season.
