Clayton used to play football

Clayton used to play American football to a pretty high level before he switched his career up. Due to his whopping height of 6 feet 5 inches, it’s understandable as to why he was such a good player.

Clayton is also one of the tallest bachelors to appear on all 26 seasons and is the same height as former 2021 bachelor, Matt James.

Clayton played football for his university, the University of Missouri and even signed an undrafted free agent contract with the Seattle Seahawks after he graduated. However, for reasons not disclosed, he was cut before the season began.
