After asking for privacy, the pair concluded their statement with a thank you to their supporters, writing, "Thank you for your understanding and love while we have shared our vulnerability with the world". "It's with a heavy heart that we have mutually chose to end our relationship", the message began.
The Bachelor Winter Games stars Clare Crawley and fiance Benoit Beausejour-Savard have announced their decision to split after being engaged for only a month and a half. We think the world of eachother, 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, ' she added.
'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, ' she wrote. We think the world of eachother, 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. We still care for each other very deeply (That is why no hate or disrespectful comments will be tolerated about the other.) Please respect our privacy as well, as with the end of any relationship, it is never easy.
Clare also said there was no ill will between them.
While Canadian Beauséjour-Savard fell hard for Crawley - who appeared on Juan Pablo's season of "The Bachelor" and the first two seasons of "Bachelor in Paradise" - she was infatuated with German contestant Christian Rauch. Beausejour-Savard popped the question during the February 22 episode of The Bachelor Winter Games: World Tells All.
While they didn't win the winter games, Montreal native Benoit and Californian Clare did end up reconnecting after the show. Beausejour-Savard is known for competing on The Bachelorette Canada.
"The sentence that kept running through my mind was, 'It's not the end of the two of us.' But I knew at that moment that she may have [fallen] for him". Although Crawley would later reveal that she didn't have strong feelings for him, they would reconnect after they both left the show.
