SPOILER ALERT: Stop reading if you do not want to see potential spoilers for season 16 of The Bachelorette. Recent comments from this season’s frontrunner on The Bachelorette have sparked concern he is not there for genuine reasons.
Among the 31 men Clare Crawley met on night one of The Bachelorette was former NFL player turned model and host, Dale Moss. During the show’s delay in production, Moss returned to his hometown of Brandon, South Dakota. While there, he spoke with Midco Sports Network about his aspirations in the entertainment industry.
“Currently I am a model with Wilhelmina International and a sports and entertainment host. That’s always been one of my focuses,” said Moss during the interview. He continued, “I think how Ryan Seacrest has built a brand, and really an empire, is amazing and I’d love to model my career after him.”
Since the interview, Dale Moss has switched representation to EWG Management.
Moss is also interested in doing work behind the lens. “I’m doing a lot of producing, you know,” said Moss, adding “live events, which you know obviously isn’t going on right now. Working on a documentary and that’s under my company Moss Martin Media.”
He described his passion for media on his website, writing:
“My passion for storytelling and ability to connect with people across different industries has made me a sought after entertainment host and media personality. Beyond being featured in some of the industry’s top fashion, fitness, lifestyle publications I’ve expanded my reach producing and providing creative direction on projects with global brands such as Under Armour, Hugo Boss, Express, United Airlines and the top media outlets.”
In the recent promo for this season of The Bachelorette, fellow contestant Ed Waisbrot seemingly accuses Moss of being there for fame. In the franchise’s history, accusations of this nature are deemed not being there for the right reasons. He appears to tell Moss, “You’re phony and you’re fraudulent, you’re artificial, you’re everything fake. The cameras are here, you’re a completely different person.”
This sentiment is touched on by Bennett Jordan, who says, “It’s only a matter of time before Clare realizes the truth that Dale’s maybe not who Clare thinks he is.”
