Claire was a girl who locked herself out of her cabana at the Beverly Hills Beach Club and had to have Brandon Walsh come and let her into it. Brandon then sets up a date with her. She was from Florida and only in town for a week with her twin sister, Rory.
Brandon and Claire had a date, but Steve Sanders, who was dating her twin Rory, wanted to switch twins because Rory had been ill on their first two attempts. Brandon was going to break the date with Rory, but realized they were playing a trick on Steve and he was actually going out with Claire again.
