Clare Crawley will have to give Bachelor Nation time to trust in her relationship with Dale Moss in order to rebuild her reputation with fans, according to a damage control expert.
The Bachelorette star has been having a tough time ever since her dramatic appearance in the latest series of the reality dating show ended with an engagement to Dale Moss after just two weeks of filming.
Clare and Dale have continuously denied having been in contact with each other before the show, but never-ending rumors have made some fans doubt the star’s new relationship.

Over the weekend, Clare spoke about the public backlash she has faced on Instagram as she pleaded with fans to remember she is a human with ‘feelings, insecurities, emotions, and a normal life just like you.’
She ended the post by stating: ‘Please remember just like you, I am simply trying my best.’
However, Eric Schiffer – damage control expert and chairman of Reputation Management Consultants – told Metro.co.uk that Clare needs to hold on responding to the criticism she’s faced so far.
He explained that in the eyes of viewers ‘Claire Crawley ripped off Bachelor Nation’ and claimed the star ‘decimated her reputation for failing to be disciplined and stick with the show’s rules she contracted to abide.’
The reputation expert continued: ‘If Claire were my client, I’d tell her that the more she addresses the relationship, the more suspicious she looks to armchair speculators.
‘The only thing Claire can do now is to allow the hands of time to set her free. Because if true love is what she chose, and it lasts, then fans will come around.’
He then warned: ‘If not, Claire Crawley will go down as having fleeced millions of reality fans as the single worst Bachelorette in TV history.’
So far Clare and Dale’s relationship is going from strength to strength after they enjoyed their own version of hometown visits last month.
The smitten couple even brushed off cheating rumors by spending Thanksgiving together.
