Clare makes franchise history because this season was filled solely in a "bubble" at La Quinta Resort in Palm Springs, California. There were no jet-setting trips to Europe or South America, but instead, staying rooted and hoping to find the man who will help her plant roots in their new life together.

The former Bachelorettes banded together (socially distant, of course) to create a video for Clare in honor of her season finally beginning. In it, the women give glimpses of what their lives are like now, which include everything from sipping coffee while their kids jump on the bed to licking cookie batter off a spoon.
Clare captioned the video, "Passing the rose 🌹 I cannot even begin to tell you all how thankful I am to be a part of such an amazing group of women as I start this journey of my own! Behind the scenes, these women really are exceptional, and have gone above and beyond to be inclusive and supportive of eachother!"
The caption continued, "There is a reason why each and every one of them have carried the torch as the Bachelorette, and today, From the bottom of my heart, I am grateful to be carrying it on as my own unique season begins! I hope you all enjoy!"
The video echoes a conversation Clare had with Rachel Lindsay and Becca Kufrin on "Bachelor Happy Hour" in July. During their chat, Rachel and Becca said they were going to pass the "Bachelorette Bible" onto Clare, which offers advice and memories.
The Bachelorettes have passed their roses to Clare, and now Clare finally has the chance to hand out the beloved flowers to the men on her season.
Be sure to tune in to Clare's season premiere, which airs Tuesday, October 13, at 8 p.m. on ABC.
