A familiar face was supposed to drop by the season premiere of The Bachelorette. Ahead of the show's 16th season premiere on Monday, leading lady Clare Crawley's ex-fiancé, Benoit Beauséjour-Savard, teased fans that he'd be making an appearance on the episode.
"It's tonight guys!!! Tune in on ABC to watch @clarecrawley journey. P.S.: You might see a familiar French Canadian in it," Beauséjour-Savard wrote on his Instagram Story alongside a promo for the episode.
When the episode concluded and no Beauséjour-Savard had been seen, he went back to his story to share pics from March when he filmed his would-be appearance.
"Well... This is what you should have seen.. just two exes having a fun chat.. that's probably why they cut that," he quipped on top of a pic of himself and Crawley having a conversation at a restaurant.
"And a little too much Baileys in our coffees," he added in a third pic, which showed the formerly engaged pair making silly faces for the camera.
Beauséjour-Savard and Crawley got engaged in 2018 during the reunion show of Bachelor Winter Games. They called it quits less than two months later, writing on Instagram that "with a heavy heart we have mutually decided to end our relationship."
"Congratulations to this gem!!" he wrote. "She will be an amazing Bachelorette. She is smart, fun, strong, knows what she wants and most importantly, she will call out the guys messing around!! Hell yeah!!"
"Good Luck on your journey to find love @clarecrawley!!" Beauséjour-Savard added. "You will be the best #TheBestBacheloretteEver"
