What You Didn't Know About Clare Crawley's Rumored Fiance, Dale Moss

Word on the street — or rather, the rumor spreading like wildfire through Bachelor Nation — is that Clare Crawley, the original woman set to head season 16 of ABC's The Bachelorette, has fallen so hard and so fast for the contestant that she gave her first impression rose to that she's decided to forego filming the rest of the season. 

A source exclusively told Life & Style that Clare has "already fallen in love" with contestant Dale Moss and "refused to come out of her room" during filming upon the revelation of her own feelings. The source also added that her refusal to continue filming left the production powers that be in a lurch. "Producers are scrambling to figure out what to do," the insider divulged. "They are frantic trying to pick up the pieces without having to start over completely." Purportedly, part of that includes bringing in Bachelor alum Tayshia Adams to replace Crawley.

So what is there to know about Dale and what is it about him that would prompt Clare to leave it all behind in her rearview mirror? Keep reading after the jump to find out. 

Dale Moss wears many hats

As reported by Life & Style, Dale Moss is a 31-year-old who has packed a lot in his short time on this earth, including playing football in the NFL, working as a model, and even volunteering his time with the Special Olympics as a global ambassador (via Heavy). But that's not all. A quick LinkedIn search will find that Dale is also the founder of Moss Martin Media, a media production company. On top of that, he's also produced his own YouTube channel and sports podcast, titled The Game Plan With Dale Moss

An inside source told Life & Style that Dale is "very talkative and well-spoken. He's open and positive. He's pretty ambitious. He has his goals set and he's tirelessly working toward them." A man with ambition? What's not to love? While Bachelorette Clare Crawley is eight years Dale's senior, he certainly has accomplished quite a bit, something we're sure Clare admires. 

Dale Moss doesn't come without his own baggage

Another inside source exclusively revealed to Life & Style that former NFL wide receiver Dale Moss has a past, specifically with a former flame. According to the source, Moss was "in a serious relationship" with a woman by the name of Seema Sadekar before signing up for Clare Crawley's season of The Bachelorette. "When I met him, they had just broken up. My impression was he always wanted to get back with her. When it comes to girls, she's the one he would talk about the most," the source added. 

But why might Dale have a rough time letting his former flame go? Per Elite Daily, Sadekar is famous and successful in her own right. According to the publication, Sadekar is a professional golfer and has a whopping 50K Instagram followers. But that's just the tip of the iceberg. It's also reported that Sadekar co-owns a golf marketing and event company with her older sister, Nisha Sadekar.

Here's hoping that Dale is willing to leave his past behind in the rearview as much as Clare was willing to leave The Bachelorette in hers.
