‘The Bachelor Winter Games’ Couple Benoit & Clare Call Off Their Engagement





The Bachelor Winter Games was a two-week whirlwind of Bachelor fan favorites and new international Bachelor faces. Everyone immediately coupled up on the show, but now that the show is done and over, couples are breaking up left and right.

The winners of the show Ashley I. and Kevin called it quits in March and now Benoit and Clare are doing the same. The only difference is that Clare and Benoit were engaged! Sadly their engagement has been called off. The couple announced their split on Instagram


The caption, despite its length, vaguely explains why their relationship has come to an end. It’s very similar to Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan Tatum’s divorce announcement. They simply couldn’t make it work and hold no hard feelings for each other.

We understand A lot of you have been asking about [sic] relationship since the show, and we wanted to thank you all for the love and respect as we navigated it in real life off camera. We do understand however, having a public engagement on TV kind of changes that. It’s with a heavy heart that we have mutually decided to end our relationship. We think the world of [sic] eachother, and we were both hoping we could make this work. I’m sorry that this may not be what you want to hear, but it’s our truth. Just know there are no negative feelings here, we are simply two people who believed in love, and were open enough to give it a chance. We still care for each other very deeply (That is why no hate or disrespectful comments will be tolerated about the other.) Please respect our privacy as well, as with the end of any relationship, it is never easy. Thank you for your understanding and love while we have shared our vulnerability with the world. ❤ Clare & Benoît

Not only was their engagement super public, but it was also a surprise. The couple wasn’t dating during production. Clare was in the middle of a love triangle with Benoit and Christian and ultimately chose Christian, which ended up being a mistake.

The star-crossed lovers reconnected after filming and before you know it, Benoit put a ring on it on TV. During the Winter Games reunion, Benoit got down on one knee and proposed to Clare.

The move was out of left field because they weren’t even technically together on the show. But after Benoit saw Clare leave the show in tears, because Christian was being a douche to put it lightly, he texted her to see if she was okay.

Since then the two reconnected off-screen, got engaged on screen and now broke up off-screen. Just a PSA, maybe don’t get engaged after a few months of dating.
