Production for the ABC reality dating show was put on hold amid the coronavirus pandemic.
While filming has resumed in a safe manner, some of the season’s original contestants have been cut from the cast.
Collins shared his Bachelorette headshot when telling his followers that he would not be competing for Clare’s heart.
He wrote: “First and foremost, I want to thank @bacheloretteabc for this amazing experience.
“For those who do not know, I was recently cut from the show and I respect their decision. Please do not ask me on why I was cut.

He concluded: “Most importantly, I want to thank all of my friends, colleagues, and family for their advice and support through this process. Love you guys and this is only the beginning.”
While Tien didn’t originally address being cut for the show, an Instagram user commented on a shot of him with friends: “Really disappointed that you’re not going to be on Clare’s season. It would’ve been nice to see Asian representation in the bachelor pool.”
Tien responded: “agreed, I’m rooting for Joe! I guess 1 of 32 slots is progress lol.”

She danced towards the cameras and was filmed walking off into the distance as she appeared to be filming introduction scenes and cutaways.
Crew members wore face masks, while Clare notably did not wear one- even when the cameras weren’t filming.
Filming for The Bachelorette has resumed in what show bosses hope will be an “isolated” location in Southern California.
New Bachelor Matt James was also supposed to compete on Clare’s season before he was named the next season’s lead.
He will be the first black leading man in the show’s history.
