“Today’s day and age, everybody likes to jump and push their opinion out as quick as they can,” he said. “With technology and Twitter and all these different avenues, we’re able to get out our opinions as quick as possible.”
While he acknowledged there is “some validity” to some of the arguments fans have made and he’s willing “to face criticism” as he “did not do things perfectly,” he wished fans would wait to see what happens.
“I’ve had really great conversations with previous bachelors [and] bachelorettes,” he said of the support he’s gotten throughout the season, “that have really put it in perspective that, ‘hey, a lot of what you’re feeling, a lot of this hate that you see online is temporary. And it can change very quickly.’”
The season finale of Clayton‘s cycle is set to air March 14. Find out who the finale three contestants are!
