Formerly Engaged Benoit Beauséjour-Savard Arrives
Benoit Beauséjour-Savard met Clare Crawley on The Bachelor Winter Games and got engaged to her on national television. So, it may surprise some to see him on Bachelor in Paradise, but, unfortunately for Crawley fans, the two broke up. In April 2018, the two released a joint statement on Instagram.
People reported the the announcement as, “We understand A lot of you have been asking about our 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 each other, 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.”
On tonight’s episode, promo videos lead us to believe that Savard may get in the middle of Jordan Kimball’s romance with Jenna Cooper. ABC reported that, “Love is definitely in the air on a third date when a new arrival from a foreign land asks out a newly available blonde bombshell who is over her last boyfriend after his behavior at the last cocktail party. Upon returning from a successful first date, the giddy couple is awaited by the guilt-ridden gentleman who attempts to win his girlfriend back with a bold gesture. Which guy can this fickle female trust to protect her heart forever?” According to Reality Steve, Savard does not end up with Cooper. In fact, Cooper reportedly gets engaged to Kimball.
