Is this the beginning of the end, or just the start of something new? Clayton Echard shared an unexpected update on his life after season 26 of The Bachelor, during which he and Susie Evans moved to Virginia Beach.
We have said things like, “We don’t know if it’s going to be a month-long [relationship] from here or if it’s going to be a lifetime, but, like, there’s no pressure.
The 29-year-old ABC star recently spoke on Dear Media’s “Not Skinny But Not Fat” podcast, where she urged listeners to focus on the positive and expressed gratitude rather than their weight.
We went through it together, and today we’re stronger than ever. I can only sit here with this much optimism because she has been on my side.
Could you please explain what went wrong between Susie and Clayton?
Their conversation proceeded, and Susie said, “If you feel like you’re in love with me, it doesn’t make sense to sleep with anybody else.”
When asked about this, Clayton replied, “I told myself coming into this that I wouldn’t fall in love with numerous ladies, but it’s occurred.”
It was too late to change Clayton’s actions now that he knows they will “be a deal-breaker” for Susie. When Susie left, she was in tears. But in the end, Susie did come back for the finale’s rose ceremony.
After a fight between Clayton, Rachel, and Gabby, Susie returned to the program and was left alone for the final rose ceremony. Susie tells Clayton that she and Clayton are splitting up and that she has come to the “devastating” determination to leave Iceland.
I’ve given this some thinking, and ultimately I don’t believe that either you or I am the right person for each other.
After the premiere of the new season of The Bachelorette on July 11, 2022, Susie Evans jokingly defended Clayton Echard in a TikTok, calling out the suitors for dragging Echard.
Season 19’s premiere included Echard’s ex-girlfriends Windey and Recchia as the show’s first Bachelorette duo, and several of the suitors highlighted Echard in their limo introductions.
Evans posed with images of potential suitors making fun of Echard while lip-syncing, “Keep my wife’s name out your Mouth.” As she put it in her letter, “No ill will intended… I have to take advantage of this opportunity for #thebachelorette.”
Evans and Echard responded to a limo entry in which a choir sang “Clayton sucks” over and over again by posting another TikTok.
The pair shared their own recreation of the scene, in which they can be seen dressed identically in white robes, head towel covers, sunglasses, and a bottle of champagne while lip-syncing to the audio of “Clayton sucks.”
On this date in 2022, Clayton Echard announced that he and Susie Evans were attempting a long-distance relationship.
Echard stated that he and Evans would be going long distances during an appearance on Dear Media’s Not Skinny but Not Fat podcast.
Evans is leaving for Los Angeles, while Echard is relocating to Scottsdale, Arizona, as revealed by the former Bachelor. Even though Echard admitted that he wasn’t sure where the relationship stood, he was willing to give long distance a shot.
“There’s no pressure since we have no idea if this is going to be a month-long relationship or a lifetime commitment. Let’s simply be thankful and loving to one another “He went on to say.
Echard elaborated, “We went through it — together, though; we’re very, very happy right now and in a really terrific situation.” “Thank God, she’s on my side; without her, I couldn’t sit here with this much optimism.”
Echard told supporters that their separation would not be indicative of a breakup, saying that they will be “just a 50-minute flight apart.” Those around us may see our space apart as a sign of trouble, but he assured me that “a little distance never hurts.”
The split between Clayton Echard and Susie Evans occurs in September of 2022.
On September 23rd, 2022, Echard and Evans issued a joint Instagram statement announcing their separation. “We’ve made the painful decision to part ways and wanted to let you know.
Anyone who has ever loved understands how difficult of a choice this was “The penned something. “We realize that many people may have questions about this choice; after all, the internet is a highlight reel, and many of our shared experiences have been kept private for understandable reasons.
While we have shared a lot of laughter and smiles over the past year, we also want to be honest and say that there has been a great deal of sadness “They carried on”.
Although we expected to face challenges in our relationship, we didn’t anticipate the extent to which external factors impeded our recovery as individuals and as a couple.
While this is “not an easy time” for either of them, Echard and Evans have vowed to continue supporting one another and “focusing on continuing to work on ourselves, so we can be the greatest version of ourselves” moving forward.
Though Claysie is gone, we pray that our communities will rally behind us as we continue to grow in love and mutual respect. “We appreciate everyone who has helped strengthen our bond. It means more than you realize.”
On September 30, 2022, Susie Evans is focusing on herself after her breakup with Clayton Echard Evans by engaging in self-care rituals.
The former contestant on “The Bachelor” posted a TikTok video of herself in which she can be seen wearing a face mask, writing in a journal, and reading from the self-help book “Psycho-Cybernetics” by Maxwell Maltz.
Me to every self-care practice I’ve picked up this week,” Evans wrote on the video. “You little s—-,” I told him, “you better fix my entire life.” And then she said, “But really.”
Evans suggested as much in a second TikTok video, suggesting that she is sick of talking about her ex-boyfriend. She lip-synced to one of the app’s sounds, “No more questions, I’m a little furious, and I’m weary.” How I’m dealing with this week,” Evans titled the video.
On the podcast hosted by Kaitlyn Bristowe on October 4, 2022, Clayton Echard and Susie Evans break up and talk about it.
Evan and Ethan appeared on Off the Vine, the podcast of Bachelor Nation alum Kaitlyn Bristowe. The exes opened up about the time immediately following the breakup in an extremely honest appearance.
It’s tough because my first feeling when we broke up was abandonment, Echard stated. “My mood had soured. I couldn’t bear to look at her for fear of being torn apart emotionally if I saw her hurt expression.”
He eventually revealed that he had kept in touch with Evans and even suggested that they might make up. “How do Susie and I stay in touch without dwelling on the question “Can this work?”? Cause if it doesn’t, then what?”
A statement he made. “Keep your hopes up; I don’t want to be disappointed. You think you have a solution, but all of a sudden you realize that it won’t work, and it ends up destroying you again.”
On the 21st of November, 2022, Susie Evans described her previous connection with Clayton Echard as “emotionally draining.”
Evans discussed her romance with Echard in a blog post. She characterized their interactions as “emotionally draining” and “not good for the soul.” She said, “Those who knew me well could tell that my radiance had faded and that I was no longer thriving.”
The wedding videographer continued by saying she is pulling for her ex despite their tumultuous history. I believe that we are both on the path to discovering pleasure within ourselves and our passions,” she said.
“Despite being on opposite sides of the world, I know we’re both secretly cheering each other on. The fact that a relationship didn’t last forever doesn’t imply it wasn’t blissful while it lasted.”
