The 38-year-old hairstylist from Sacramento, Calif. was first introduced to America on the 18th season of “The Bachelor” when she vied for the heart of former Venezuelan soccer player Juan Pablo Galavis in 2014. Crawley made it all the way to the final two only to get rejected by Galavis at the end. Her heartbroken rant at him in the finale, telling him, “I lost respect for you because… I thought I knew what kind of man are you. What you just made me go through, I would never want my children having a father like you!”, was a memorable moment of that season.
She appeared on the first two seasons of “Bachelor in Paradise,” but failed to discover love there.
In Feb. 2018 for “Bachelor Winter Games,” Crawley was involved in a love triangle with Bachelorette Germany’s Christian Rauch and Bachelorette Canada’s Benoit Beausejour-Savard. Beausejour-Savard proposed to Crawley near the end of that season but the two split shortly thereafter.
Based on Nielsen’s adults 18-49 data, ABC’s “The Bachelorette” ranked as the No. 1 show of the summer in 2019; the current 24th season of “The Bachelor” featuring “Pilot” Peter Weber is ABC’s top show of the 2019-20 season (to-date).
