Eureka, Missouri Celebrates ‘The Bachelor’ 2022 Clayton Echard (Video)

ABC has not officially announced the name of the next Bachelor. However, Eureka, Missouri is celebrating this week.  They’ve gone all out to welcome and honor The Bachelor Clayton Echard. Word got out that filming was taking place for his intro video in Eureka. This sent Bachelor Nation into a frenzy trying to learn more about the man that nobody has met yet. He will be introduced to the world during Michelle Young’s season of The Bachelorette. However, with filming set to begin within a few weeks, ABC will most likely be making that official announcement soon.

Once word got out filming was taking place, more details began to fall into place. Reality Steve also was able to confirm that Clayton is the new lead for the 2022 season. He shared a tweet featuring a photo posted by Eureka. The huge banner was strung over the road. It read, “Go find love Clayton.”

The mayor of Eureka sent out a tweet letting locals know what was going on. He said, “Eureka native Clayton Echard, the next “Bachelor”, and a film crew from the show will be on location in downtown Eureka today around 3:00. Eureka folks are welcome to come down to wish him good luck on the show and watch the shoot.”

There was video captured and shared by Reality Steve of the 3:00 gathering in Eureka.

Mike Fleiss has been teasing that they hit the jackpot with their new lead. He also finally announced that Clayton is from Michelle Young’s season. Plus, after the world was figuring out The Bachelor’s identity Fleiss sent out another tweet. He said, “Another Major Announcement!!! His first name starts with the letter “C.” #TheBachelor.”

Who is Clayton Echard?

The 28-year-old from Eureka, Missouri is now a Full-Line Sales Representative with Stryker Orthopaedics. He was once a freestyle rapper and also played football. He played for the University of Missouri at Columbia. Following college, he went on to play for a few months with the Seattle Seahawks. He made it through the first round of cuts but ultimately did not make the final team.

Clayton also is a big-time family man as can be seen from his numerous photos on social media. There must be something amazing about him for producers to choose a man Bachelor Nation has never met.
